The BARE Lean recipes have been designed to support you in your goal of feeling leaner, fitter, stronger and more confident within yourself. To achieve this goal I recommend you follow the guide as recommended, by eating BARE Lean recipes exclusively. However, BARE Lean also has the freedom and flexibility to build your own meals using the BARE Lean principles (there are resources within the guide to help you with this). If you prefer to use BARE Lean recipes in amongst your usual home cooked meals, go ahead. Just keep in mind that your progress may be slower by using it this way.
For inspiration we have provided you 12 weeks of example weekly planners for you to follow. Alternatively, you can build your own weekly planners from the BARE Lean recipes, and by doing so you will still be achieving your target daily energy and macronutrient intake. Also, if there are ingredients in the recipes that you don’t like and/or cannot have, there are plenty of ingredient swaps and alternatives that you can substitute in and out to make the recipes work for you. There is plenty of room to play to find an eating plan that fits into your lifestyle.
