Healthy Food Delivery Beats Packing on the Pounds

Healthy Food Delivery Beats Packing on the Pounds

If you’ve been trying to lose weight for a while, but haven’t yet found your niche, it may be time to take a hard look at your lifestyle or healthy food delivery if you lack the proper time to cook healthy meals at home.

4 habits that make you gain weight and how healthy food delivery can help

Help! I can’t get out of my chair!

As a culture, we sit way too much. Most of us have a desk job where we stay planted for up to 8 hours for five days a week and then come home to sit on the couch for another 2-3 hours watching TV. It may be relaxing to live a sedentary lifestyle, but be warned—prolonged sitting puts you at risk for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. To avoid the risk, stand up more throughout the day even if it’s just for a minute or two and take more walks. A five minute stroll will do you and your body some good. You’ll have more energy and you'll be able to think more clearly too.

Healthy food delivery can also help you feel more active. Healthy food fuels your body the same way gasoline fuels a car. If you eat junk food, you’ll feel sluggish and WANT to sit all day. If you eat healthy food, you’ll feel more energized and willingly make time for little walks spread out throughout the day.

Eat! Eat! Eat!

So, you might be thinking, “I’m trying to LOSE weight, why should I eat MORE food?” The answer is simple. If you cut your food intake way down, your body will lower your metabolism so you need less food to survive; but your body will also hold on to every single calorie you consume—causing you to gain weight. Even if you start eating normally again, it will take some time for your body to regulate itself so don’t get discouraged. Just make sure you start the day off with a balanced breakfast complete with fiber and protein. Eat small, but frequent meals and snacks throughout the day to feel fuller longer and drink lots of water.

If you’re looking for fast and convenient healthy food without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, bistroMD offers a healthy food delivery solution that will help you successfully lose 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.

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.

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.

Keep your emotions at bay

It’s no secret that we eat our emotions. We eat when we’re sad, anxious, depressed or angry. When we’re stressed we release a hormone called cortisol. One study found that people with high amounts of cortisol are more likely to reach for junk food as a pick-me-up.

Next time you’re not feeling so great, try natural mood boosters like omega-3 rich foods (fish, nuts), whole grains, lean protein or green tea.
