Hey /fit/, beginner here. How do you manage fitting meals to your macros and daily calorie intake? I've got my calories and protein targets sorted, but as a hopeless cook, I don't know where to start in terms of meals and good combinations that will hit my targets? Any advice?

Meal prep. Take 2 hours to cook all your food for a few days. The oven is your friend.

i dont give a flying fuck about specific numbers and just make sure to cook fresh with ground ingredients from the /fit diet/ picture and roughly count the protein. you dont have to bother counting calories or macros or whatever the fuck you talk about there as long as you feel good and cook with the /fit diet/ picture.
bulk=eat so you want to vomit
cut=feel like you could eat more, but will not. not neccessarily starving.

eat almonds as a snack and put berries and other fruits in your oatmeal in the morning. that will do the trick

also drink so much water you have to go pee every 30 minutes

also this >>35144842, obviously

>I don't know where to start in terms of meals and good combinations that will hit my targets?
Experiment. Turkey/chicken with spinach, onions, garlic, soy sauce and whole wheat pasta works wonders.
any meat with a tomato sauce you made yourself (cut tomatoes, add spices, water, olive oil, garlic, blend with a mixer). tomato sauce will taste better after a few days. dont eat it on the first day. give it some rest.

cook broccoli and other green stuf in a pan with oliveoil and or soy sauce and season with salt and pepper, add leak and or onions if you like.

you can mix minced meat with eggs and spinach too.

spaghetti bolognese with a salad

If you know some meals you like, just look up recipes for them, find out the macros for that recipe, then fuck with it (add/remove/change ingredients/side dishes/etc.) until it fits.

When I say fits, I mean into however you're structuring your diet. You could have three sqare meals with an even spread of your macros between them and some snacks in between. You could do some intermittent fasting and get most of your macros from one or two big meals. You could get most of one macro from one meal and have less of that in the others.

It's mostly just toying with things until the numbers fit and it tastes OK. It's not rocket science, you'll figure it out with trial and error.

Ignore this pic OP, "ketogenic" and "paleo" diets are an inside joke on this board

You afraid of tomatoes, son?

Not really.

You're overthinking it dude. It's really, really easy. Just start with the protein source for the meal, and build around that. Use an app like myfitnesspal or a notepad to roughly track calories.

try it out for one day tracking everything you eat.
keep on doing it until one day you hit all your macros and then eat roughly the same stuff every day with different veggies sauce etc and you'll be able to do it
