It requires careful measurements of calories, fluids, and proteins. Foods are weighed and measured.

Responsibilities will include: focusing heavily on meal planning, shopping local for groceries/ingredients, religiously measuring/calculating to the gram, prepping, cooking, packing batch meals including packing/storing, safe and proper cleanup while being hyper aware of cross-contamination.
