Food Delivery: Beat the Fat

Food Delivery: Beat the Fat

If you want to shed the pounds, but don’t have time to hit the gym or cook healthy food, take a deep breath because we’ve got some tips to make your life a little easier.

First off, regular exercise is nothing without good nutrition. You need a healthy, balanced diet to fuel your workout and avoid injury.

Like your car needs gasoline to keep moving, your body needs the vitamins and nutrients from healthy food to keep it energized.

If you’re looking for something fast and convenient without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, bistroMD offers a food delivery service that can help you successfully lose the weight.

We cook with the freshest ingredients and have over 200 recipes and a customizable menu so you should have no problem finding something to satisfy your taste buds.

Developed by bariatric physician, Dr. Caroline Cederquist, M.D., every bite you take follows this proven approach for healthy weight loss. Our program provides 1,100-1,400 calories daily with 40-50% total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20-25% of calories from healthy fats, and 30-35% from complex carbohydrates.

It only takes a few weeks to start seeing results. You don’t have anything to lose, but the fat!

We have a men and a women’s program with the option to receive five-or-seven-days’ worth of healthy meals delivered to your door from our food delivery service.

The two programs range from $130-$160 and EATS, our essential and tasty snacks are just $1.50 per snack. Women receive two snacks per day and men receive three snacks per day.

The benefits of a food delivery service

Spending hours at the grocery store and rushing home to prepare a healthy meal before the mountain of after work responsibilities begins will be a thing of the past with our food delivery service.

A food delivery service will free up a lot of your time so you can get back to the things you love.

How to use your food delivery service to your advantage

Now that you don’t have to worry about putting healthy food on the table, you can squeeze in a gym workout or two—or try these alternatives:

Walk to work. Don’t drive or take public transportation

Walk to work if you can. Walking for 30 minutes at a brisk 17-minute-mile pace burns almost as many calories as jogging two miles on the treadmill, according to Men’s Fitness.

Clean up your space

A good apartment clean sweep (you know, the works—windows, kitchen, bathrooms, floors and mirrors) burns a lot more calories than you may think.

Give your car some love

Next time your car needs a bath, skip the expensive car wash or cheap gas station knock off and do it yourself. Pump up your favorite tunes, get some lemonade and enjoy the warm sun on your face. You could burn up to 200 calories by just washing your car!

Just be creative

There are tons of things you can do to burn those calories if you can’t get to a gym. Just keep your fitness in the back of your mind and be creative. Don’t take the easy way and be proactive.
