Meal Delivery Service Curbs Bad Eating Excuses

Meal Delivery Service Curbs Bad Eating Excuses

Losing weight is equal parts motivation and eating healthy. No one is going to hold your hand and tell you what to do every step of the way so your weight loss success largely depends on you and how much you decide you’re going to commit; but don't panic because there are great tools to help you make your weight loss journey a little easier.

Have you ever tried a meal delivery service?

Meal delivery is a convenient way to eat the healthy, balanced meals your body craves.

If you’re looking for something fast and convenient without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, you're in luck because bistroMD offers an innovative meal delivery service that can 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.

We’re not trying to scare you into thinking that you can only eat certain foods and absolutely nothing else. A meal delivery service can help you get on track with a nutritious diet—but there are some bad excuses for overeating you may want to consider because portion size is essential to healthy weight loss.

Some fats are good for you, but that doesn’t mean you should indulge

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (the good guys) can actually help reduce cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. It’s a better idea to reach for nuts over prepackaged junk food—but they should not be eaten in excess.

Having one cheat day a week is fine, but a whole weekend is too much

A whole weekend of overindulgence is just enough to unravel your weight loss efforts. This type of overindulgence can lead to overeating, skipping workouts and poor choices during the week.

I can eat whatever I want at lunch time because I’m going to the gym later

Unfortunately, this is a myth. Calories consumed earlier in the day do not cross out calories burned at the gym later on.

There is no such thing as free foods

If something is low fat, that doesn’t mean you can eat more of it because it’s “not as bad” as the real thing. When companies remove fat to deem something a low fat option, they usually add sugar so these options aren’t as low fat as you might think they are.

Popcorn for example, is not a free food. Three cups of the tasty morsel equals a slice of bread, in terms of calories.

To avoid overeating, opt for a meal delivery service and banish all processed food from your pantry—because you don’t need any more temptation on those days you’re craving something sweet.
