Weight Loss vs Weight Gain with Steak Burrito Bowls
Burrito bowls are one of my favorite dishes for meal prep. They check all of the boxes for what makes a good meal prep dish. Reheats well. Stores well. Tastes great. Easily customizable. Makes everyone in your office jealous. One thing I’m asked about often is how I don’t get sick of eating the same thing every day. First off, it’s not like I eat the same thing for breakfast lunch and dinner. I prep different meals for the day. Second, I make food that actually tastes good. If I prepped a dry ass chicken breast and some broccoli with rice I wouldn’t want to eat that either. Gross. If your food tastes good you’ll want to eat it. Simple as that.
Keep in mind that no one meal will necessarily make you gain or lose weight. It’s about your relationship to calorie balance over time. These images are meant to help show you what kind of decisions you can make to sculpt your eating into fitting your goals. On the weight gain side there is more steak and more rice. Another good way to add calories would be with beans. If you can handle the extra volume then keeping the amount of peppers the same is certainly OK but I prefer to lessen them because I don’t like eating that much food. They are so low in calories that it won’t change too much. On the weight loss side is a smaller serving of rice, smaller serving of steak, and a larger serving of the peppers. Filling your dish with low calorie high volume foods will help you stay full for longer and that can be all the difference when you’re trying to lose weight.
