Sandwiches, soups and salads make up the majority of the menu. The majority of food is prepare fresh on site everyday.

Why did we choose these dishes?

The above recommendations were selected with the following guidelines:

Protein content above 20g
Low carbohydrate meals – less than 25g
Moderate carbohydrate meals – 25-50g

Recommend daily protein intake for adults participating in resistance training 1.2-2g/kg
Average female bodyweight in the UK = 70kg
Minimum daily target (1.2 x70) = 84g
Divide by 4 meals = 21g

To be clear, we do not favour or demonize any macronutrient. All three (protein, carbohydrate and fat) are required for optimal health. However, many of our clients who struggle to get leaner are found to be over consuming carbohydrates and under consuming protein. Therefore these recommendations are purely to help you manage your macronutrients for optimal health, fat loss and improve body composition.
