I’d start with the most important kitchen tool if your aim is to meal prep for weight loss: the kitchen scale. This is the most important tool you’ll need if you’re going to count calories in each item you’ll be eating. As a recommendation, I’ve use this one for over 18 months and it’s going strong even though I’ve dropped it a couple of time from a few feet, the Ozeri Kitchen scale: The only downside to this scale is that if you have a super large bowl on top, it might be a bit hard to see the weighting screen. But it’s not too big of a deal.

The second most important tool is knowing how much calories are in a food item. Lots of people use an app called My Fitness Pal. You can find it on both the Apple App Store and in Google Play Store. They have a really large database filled with food items and their basic nutritional facts.

An alternative to the app is the FoodData Central US gov site here: It’s a bit more manual than My Fitness Pal, but I prefer this site over the app because I can definitively know that search for both chicken thighs with skin on, bone on, all 3, or just the thighs as skinless and boneless.

To know how much calories you should be reducing, I would check out Jordan Syatt’ YT video “How Many Calories Should I Eat to Lose Fat”: He has other great videos like, “How to Make Weight Loss Sustainable”:

When you first start out going in a calorie deficit, I would take it easy the first month or two. You’ll need to let your body get used to the calorie reduction. Every week only reduce by a 100 calories or so until you hit your target calorie deficit number. If you go all in immediately, you’re not going to be a happy camper at all.

For actual meal prep recipes, I like to use Budget Btyes site: There’s a larger variety of recipes to choose from, majority of them are beginner cooking friendly, the list of ingredients are easy to find and reasonable (long a super long list of things to buy), and relatively quick to make (depending on how quick you can cook).

The only downside to this site is that, like most recipe authors in the US, it’s not always 100% clear to someone starting to cook from recipes if the food item is supposed to be in dry goods measuring cups or in liquid measuring cups. I personally prefer to use the metric system for recipes because doing everything by weight or volume in grams or milliliters is more precise. It also makes calorie counting go by faster.

I know it’s a lot to take in and looks extremely time consuming, but ease yourself into it. It’s going to be a bit of a trial to get into the groove of counting calories and getting used to what food items works for you/doesn’t work. Go slow, take it week by week, and remember that you got this. Welcome to meal prepping!!
