Does it matter in which country I live?
No it does not! Everything is done online, so it is a worldwide service. All that is required is an internet connection.
Can My Meal Plan be personalized to my likes and dislikes/allergies?
All meal plans are personalized to the individual. This will take into account individual statistics, daily activity levels, food preferences, lifestyle and goals. A complete macronutrient and caloric breakdown is also included with all personalized meal plans. You can personally choose which foods you would not like to include to make the diet as enjoyable as possible for you personally!

What if I have an injury?
Student Aesthetics exercise programs are structured to produce the best results possible and includes strength training. The specific exercises may not suit all individuals if an injury is present. Please consult a health professional for guidance if you are not sure. Merijn does not give medical advice.
Can I build muscle and lose fat at the same time?
In order to lose fat you have to be in a caloric deficit (take in less calories than you burn) while in order to build muscle you have to be in a caloric surplus (take in more calories than you burn). Therefore, doing both at the same time is not an effective approach. If you are a beginner, you may be able to lose some fat while building muscle, vice versa but you should always have 1 primary goal.
Do I have to eat the same foods every day?
Absolutely not! The meal plan will provide you with 7 different days, which all come down to the same macronutrients/calories, so you can decide what you would like to eat. If you prefer it, you can eat the same thing every day but you don’t have to, since you will have 7 options. Next to this, you will also receive a Nutrition Guide with the program that explains Flexible Dieting and counting your own macronutrient intake, so you can eat exactly what you would like per day. This also helps you with fitting in “cheat foods” on a regular basis, while still hitting your daily macronutrients and getting optimal results!
Can I still drink alcohol while following the program?
Yes you can, in moderation! In the Nutrition Guide that you will receive with the program I will explain how to accomplish this without hurting your results and minimizing damage. I do not want you to have to give up your social life, so if this is a part of your lifestyle, I will teach you how to include it!
Do I have to weigh out my food during the program?
I highly suggest to use the method Flexible Dieting while following the diet plan, which I will explain fully in the Nutrition Guide included with the program. By counting your macronutrient intake, you can fit in all the foods that you like into your diet as long as you hit the daily macro/caloric goals. This will make the diet as enjoyable as possible, since you literally have no food restrictions.
If you do not wish to track your food intake, you can simply follow the meal plan, which will give you 7 options to choose from, calculated into your daily personal macronutrient/caloric needs.
What is the Student Aesthetics Facebook Group?
Throughout your membership with Student Aesthetics you will have exclusive access to the Student Aesthetics Facebook group. This group is reserved for active program members only and is a place for you to discuss your progress, recipe ideas, workouts and more with like-minded individuals.
