AAY! MEAL PLAN

COMMON QUESTIONS

 

What's a typical week like?

Every Thursday we'll email your new meal plan for the upcoming week, plus your AAY! Nutritionist Narina will post quick tips & recipe shortcuts in the private facebook group. We recommend grocery shopping on Saturdays (easy with your ready-to-go list) and food prep on Sundays (a breeze with your handy Prep Guide). Throughout the week, we're available for meal plan support in our private group.

 

Are the meal plans customizable?

Yes! If you don't eat meat, our recipes list vegetarian protein substitutions. We also provide instructions for adjusting your menus if you need more or less food. Plus, we (your nutrition team) are always available to answer your questions & help you make any necessary swaps!

 

Can I do this and still cook for my partner/family?

Absolutely! Our menus are designed to serve one person, because many of us prepare most meals just for ourselves, but only share dinner with our families. Because we label each ingredient on your shopping list with the day you'll use it, it's super easy for you to double up on the recipes you'll be cooking for others.

 

What if I'll be out of town or have upcoming events?

Great! We want you to live your real life when doing our program so you can practice integrating healthy eating habits into your lifestyle, no matter the circumstances.

Included in your bonus bundle is our Dining Out Guide, with vacation & dining out guidelines and, as mentioned above, it's easy to adjust your shopping list & meal plan to fit your schedule.

 

Will I be counting calories?

Rather than focusing on calories, it's more practical to focus on portion sizes & food variety. Yes, calories are important to reach your goals (that's why we've done the work for you), but when you do the calorie-counting it tends to be time-consuming & frustrating. It also keeps you focused on minute details instead of the overall picture.

So we’ve done the work for you. We’ve distributed your calories as follows (all numbers approximate): breakfast 250-300, lunch 350-400, dinner 350-400, snacks 200-250 each, for a total of 1500 calories per day.  The macronutrient breakdown is as follows: carbohydrates  45-65%, protein 15-35% and fat 20-35%. Sodium is at or below 2000 mg per day, well below the recommended upper limit of 2300 mg per day.

 

Will I Lose Weight?

Our program is designed to create the optimal nutrition environment. Most people who enter our program with a weight loss goal do lose weight. However, weight loss results vary from person to person and are influenced by several factors, such as: age, hormones, level of commitment & medical conditions.

 

I don't need to lose weight, but I want to eat healthier. Will this program help me?

Absolutely! All our recipes and meal plans are based on real, good-for-you foods, NOT diet foods, so they’re appropriate for everyone, regardless of your goals.

 

Can I Do This Program If I Have A Medical Condition Or I'm Pregnant?

The Meal Plans are based around whole, good-for-you foods. But, with any medical condition, we strongly recommend that you consult with your doctor before making any significant changes to your diet.


You have special dietary needs during pregnancy, so we encourage you to follow your doctor’s dietary recommendations throughout your pregnancy. We’d love to have you join our next program after you’ve given birth.

 

Can I Get A Refund?

A full refund is available within 3 days of purchase. A partial refund (half the price of the meal plan) is available within 3 days of receiving your Week One Meal Plan.
