2500 calories may seem excessive for some. Of course this really depends on your personal fitness goals, and your current level of fitness and body composition. This meal plan is more for someone that wants to burn body fat while preserving hard-earned muscle.

The key point is the quality of meals, each being loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients that your body requires.

You need quality sources of food to recover, grow new muscle tissue, and to help boost your metabolism. Simply put, use nutrition to turn your body into a fat-burning machine.
