When most people are asked why it is that they do not go to the gym or workout out, they often give one of three reasons, or occasionally a combination of the three. Either they cannot afford the monthly gym membership, they are too tired at the end of the day to workout, or they swear that they have no time. With one piece of fitness equipment we can debunk all of those excuses, while also helping to improve the nutritional health of these individuals. That piece of equipment is a workout lunch bag.
A workout lunch bag is a bag that is used to store healthy meal preps throughout the day so that they will be fresh when it comes time to eat them. Meal prepping has many benefits, including: saving money, eating healthier, and having more free time in your week. When combined, all of these benefits will work together to erase any excuses a person may try to use for avoiding the gym or a daily workout routine.
Everyday that you don’t pack a lunch to take with you either to school, work, or on your daily errands and instead purchase a meal out, you waste an average of $5 on food options that are less healthy than the meal that you could have prepped and packed for yourself in a workout lunch bag ahead of time. In a week that may only be $25-35 out of your pocket, depending on how often you eat out, but in a year that can add up to $1,300 – $1,820 that you’re throwing away on fat laden foods packed with unnecessary calories. This money could be otherwise spend on a gym membership, and even a personal trainer to keep you motivated and on track.
Without meal prep, your efforts to eat only nutritiously balanced meals throughout the day is easily compromised by distractions, temptations, lack of time, and your environmental surroundings. The busier your day becomes, the more likely you are to grab whatever food is nearest or most convenient to you, and that can be devastating to a healthy diet when the closest food options are vending machines, or fast food establishments. When you choose unhealthy food options over homemade, healthy meal prep options, you are more likely to notice a significant glucose dip throughout the day, possibly multiple times per day, which can cause you to feel tired or run down even if you’ve gotten enough sleep. When you learn to control and maintain steady glucose levels with the meals packed in your workout lunch bag you will have more energy for your after work workouts.
More Free Time
Meal prepping isn’t just beneficial for taking your meals to work with you in your workout lunch bag. It is also helpful every single night when you get home, and already have meals prepared and waiting for you in the refrigerator for dinner. When utilized properly, a weekly meal prepping plan can accommodate all of your meals for the entire week, meaning that the average hour or two that you would normally spend in the kitchen every week can be spent at the gym or otherwise working out instead, and no additional time will be lost.
