Why Choose Us?

Heard of ‘clean eating’ – avoiding additives, preservatives, junk food and so on? Have you taken the time to check the fat-to-protein ratios of the food you ingest? Or the quality of the carbs used? The calories-to-protein ratios are usually very high, so you are not necessarily giving your body what it really needs to get that lean, toned look that you are after.

With MUNCH MEASURED MEALS, what you see is what you get. We have tailored our meals according to protein and carb net weights, so you can easily plan your meals around your training times or when you need the nutrients the most – making CARB CYCLING a breeze.

So, on top of a ‘no junk’ promise, we also ensure a ‘no added fat’ promise, making clean eating a whole lot cleaner. We simplify meal preparation.

Munch brings you clean eating meal preparation with nutrient-dense, high-fibre, high-protein ready made meals, delivered to your door.
 



Why Carb Cycling?

Carb cycling is an eating plan trusted by professional athletes and bodybuilders worldwide. It provides the body with fuel needed to get through grueling workouts, while keeping off the unwanted body fat through rest times.

Carbs provide muscles with glycogen. Glycogen is the fuel muscle requires to grow and recover. Having a medium to high-carb meal before and after training sessions provides essential nutritional needs and maximizes training efforts.

Without eating carbs, it is nearly impossible to grow muscle or tone body physique.

Approximately 20g of carbs are required to release insulin in the body. Insulin is one of the most powerful anabolic hormones known to humankind, so an insulin spike around training times dramatically accelerates muscle recovery and growth.

Unfortunately, it also helps the body store fat. That means carbs should be reduced when not needed, like on non-training days or just before bedtime. Unless, of course, the goal is to pack on muscle fast; then it’s great to have at least 40g of net carbs at every meal, depending on lean body weight.
 



Our Weight Loss Philosophy

When it comes to maintaining a healthy body weight, there is only one word that nutritionists, dietitians and fitness coaches around the world use: METABOLISM.

It is your metabolic rate that determines how many calories you burn in a day, and each person has a different metabolic rate. The higher your metabolism, the more energy you use; and when your calorie intake is less than the calories you’ve used, you’ll start burning fat. If you see your body as a fuel-burning furnace and food as a heat cell, then the only way to get the furnace burning hotter is to add more fuel to the furnace (your body):  the hotter it gets, the more fuel (fat) it burns. The trick is to ingest the right fuel (food) at regular intervals.

The biggest mistake that people make when trying to lose weight is to skip meals.

Not only does this bring your metabolism to a near standstill. It also signals your body to start storing fat, as it senses that a calorie drought is on the way. We encourage our clients to eat a high-protein, high-fiber, nutrient-dense meal every three hours to keep their fat-burning furnace going. That way the body will keep shedding fat fast while at the same time you will be fueling your muscles with enough protein to recover during the day.
