Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s Weight Loss Journeys: Star Reid

Weight Loss Journeys_ Star Reid (1)

This week in our latest installment of our Weight Loss Journeys series, we check in with Star Reid.  Star, who is an avid motorcycle racer/rider, has struggled to lose weight over the past couple of years and after getting into a motorcycle accident last year, it became even more difficult. In spite of that, she eventually realized that the only thing that was holding her back was herself.

She began her journey with our Healthy Mix menu but unfortunately wasn’t able to stick with our portion sizing and began eating more “comfort” foods throughout the day. Also drinking a lot of empty calorie beverages like soda and sweet tea sabotaged her efforts as well.

Last December, she switched to our Low Carb menu and started working out regularly at her local gym. She explains, “I’ve really never been a healthy eater. I love french fries, pizza, chinese take-out…but something changed when I started ordering Fresh ‘N Fit’s Low Carb menu.” She made a promise with herself that she would stick to eating the Low Carb meals and say goodbye to all of the comfort food she loved.

She adds, “Changing my diet and taste palette were two of the biggest challenges I’ve faced. But now that I’ve done that, I’ll definitely keep them forever! I wouldn’t not have been able to do that with my Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine meals!

Initially, she thought that she lacked the discipline to stay on a low carb diet for any substantial amount of time, but Star has been proving herself wrong again and again. She explains, “My body feels so much better since I’ve been on Fresh ‘N Fit’s meals. It’s like I’m fueling my body to actually work instead of just feeding it useless, unhealthy food that it doesn’t need.” And all of that focus and commitment has paid off because since being on our Low Carb meals, she has lost a total of 35 lbs!

Seeing the results of her hard work and dedication has allowed Star to remain motivated, so let her be the amazing inspiration that you need today by giving her a follow on Instagram to follow her continued progress.

Helping our customers live a healthier lifestyle has always been one of our main goals. At Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine, nothing makes us happier than hearing your success stories, especially when our clean, macro-based meals are integrated into your health and nutrition goals.

We’ve seen the positive results time and time again and they never fail to amaze us! Over the next few weeks, we’re going to introduce you to several of our wonderful customers who have had great success with our meals.

First up is Chris Beck, who incorporated our Paleo menu into his overall fitness regimen that already included a few days each week training at his local CrossFit box.

He explains, “The first week has been great!  I’m down 5 pounds and the food has been delicious.  I’m still adjusting to the calorie deficit but I feel that my workouts have not suffered as I hit a PR today on hang power cleans.”

By cutting soda and other empty calories out of his diet and discovering new favorites like our Paleo Chili, our Green Curried Shrimp and our Pineapple Mustard Glazed Ham with Broccoli and Sweet Potato, he continued to lose weight each week and after 4 weeks he has lost almost 10 pounds!

Losing weight is never an easy thing to do but the good thing is that it’s not a secret how to do it. By eating nutritionally balanced, clean food and really committing to being more active, weight loss is just a natural result. And who knows, you might discover a new hobby as well as new favorite foods, like Chris as he explains during week 3, “All the meals have been good this week and I’m gaining a new appreciation for root vegetables.”

Another Weight Loss Success Story!

rachel
At Fresh ‘N Fit, nothing makes us happier than hearing your success stories, especially when our calorie and portion controlled meals are incorporated into your health and nutrition goals. We’ve seen the positive results time and time and they always amaze us! Today, we’d like to introduce you to Rachel, who is celebrating her one year anniversary of being on Fresh ‘N Fit.
She explains, “Struggling through the end of college, I had abandoned all healthy habits.  I tried going to the LA Fitness with a personal trainer for a year, but that didn’t do much since my nutrition was inconsistent. Losing a good friend in a tragic car accident shocked me into realizing that life is fleeting. I realized that I needed to take a more dramatic action to honor her life by taking care of mine, even if that meant running obstacle course races.”

After accepting that I actually had an eating disorder and I knew that I needed outside help. My therapist recommended Fresh ‘N Fit meals with the encouragement that there is no one correct way to eat healthy.

“You don’t have to spend tons of money at expensive grocery stores only to later spend hours batch cooking and eating the same leftovers all week.”

Instead of stressing out over both shopping and cooking with healthier aspirations, I am able to rely almost entirely on Fresh ‘N Fit to reset my body and mind by eating clean.

“With the meal plan, I eat out less, focus on my fitness training more, and enjoy my life without the mental fatigue of cooking and preparing healthy meals.”

Within the first 4 months of Fresh ‘N Fit, I consistently lost about 10 pounds per month.

“I started Crossfit two months in, hoping for an engaging workout system that would continue to improve my life beyond nutrition. After the first 6 months of Fresh ‘N Fit, I have lost 60 pounds. During the second 6 months I’ve lost another 10 pounds and 8 inches from my waistline. I have bought 2 completely new wardrobes by this point, starting at a size 18 at 255 pounds and am now at a size 10/12 at 185. I compete in weightlifting, powerlifting, and Crossfit competitions for fun, and most importantly, I love waking up every day and living my life to the fullest! Each day I try to make the best choices for myself, living by the mantra to be my best self every day. I want to thank Fresh ‘N Fit, my Crossfit Vesuvio gym fam and coaches, my #strongLike lady squad, and the extended Crossfit community for supporting not just me but everyone on their daily journey to their best selves.”

Happy Anniversary, Connie!

It’s been awhile since we’ve checked in with Connie Harwood, so it made perfect sense to see how she was doing on her 1 year anniversary of starting her mission to live a healthier lifestyle. We’ve been there for a majority of her journey and we couldn’t be more proud of her for what she has accomplished!

Connie explains, “It has been one amazing year since I started my journey to try to be a healthier person and on my 1 year anniversary I have something to celebrate. As of this week, I have said goodbye to another 5 pounds, for a total of……drum roll please…..50 pounds!”

“I have learned so many things in the last year. One of them is portion control. It’s so important to spread my calories evenly throughout the day. Before my journey, I ate less than 200 calories for breakfast, a few more at lunch, and then the most of my calories were at dinner time.”

“With the help of Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine, I have about 400 calories with each meal. The calories and portions are controlled. When I eat out I now consider calories and portion!”

Connie started off on our Healthy Mix menu before transitioning to Low Carb. Along with working out 3-5 times a week at U First Fitness, our meals have helped make the past 12 months a success.

Are you ready to put in the hard work like Connie and get the same amazing results? Then try one of our 5 chef prepared menus today! You can even order individual meals with our a la carte options or try some of our house made protein bars and healthy mix snack packs.

The Most Wonderful Time of The (New) Year!

rebecca-w0117
How do you end 2016? Did you hit any or all of your health and fitness goals? We hope you did and on that note, we would like to share another inspirational story from one of our favorite Atlanta crossfitters, Rebecca Walburn“After starting Fresh ‘N Fit in the last quarter of 2016, we’ve had Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year celebrations. I’ve traveled coast to coast for work. I’ve had road trips to visit family as well as long term house guests staying in our house. We even had a few germs run through the house. It has been chaotic, to say the least.”

“It might be the most wonderful time of the year but it is also one of the most stressful.”

“Despite the overbooked season, I am happy to say that both my weight and body fat are both down! I haven’t been starving, I haven’t deprived myself of my favorites. I’ve mostly stayed with my meal plan and lost weight and body fat over the holiday season while still eating pumpkin pie with whip cream, birthday cake, and sugar cookies I decorated with my kids.

“Having the consistency of the meal plan kept me on track and I’m much closer to my goals because of it.”

“Sure, I could have dropped more weight and fat had I skipped those seasonal foods, but being able to enjoy those moments without any guilt is an amazing feeling. Plus, losing weight and decreasing body fat is not something that usually happens around the holiday season. I’m THRILLED I can still savor the moments with my family without feeling deprived and yet I’m still closer to my goals. I have no doubt the foundational nutrition from Fresh ‘N Fit helped this become a reality.  If you haven’t tried Fresh ‘N Fit, give it a few weeks and see how it can help you as well.”

The holiday season has come and gone, so there are no more excuses on why 2017 can’t be your healthiest year ever! Try One Of Our Winter Menus, Snack Packs, Low Cal Desserts & Protein Bars and get $20 Off your first order with promo code JAN20BLOG at checkout!*

#RideLikeAStar: Life Goes By Fast

starBy: Star Reid

Life goes by so fast sometimes! Sometimes you want to just stop and enjoy the weather but you always end up making plans doing something else. That’s how my life has been lately. I have been traveling out of town every weekend. As a result, it’s been a challenge trying to hit my goals. No one said it would be easy.

For the past three weeks I haven’t been able to stay on track as much as I would like. I was only able to go the gym once. For me, finding time to work out is 50% of the battle. If I don’t go to the gym, it’s hard to stay on track with what I eat every day. In the beginning of the first week, I weighed in at 207. This got to my head because I was working hard but ended up gaining 2 lbs. Some days, I would be fine and only eat my meals from Fresh ‘N Fit. Other days I would give up and sneak in an extra meal. I did this for about 2 weeks. After coming back down from my high of traveling and my “time off,” I knew I had to get back in gear.

I went to the gym on October 3 after a three week hiatus. I didn’t weigh myself the whole time because I didn’t want to face the scale telling me I went backwards. I knew that I needed to get back in the gym and lose whatever I had gained back. The next morning, I decided to step on the scale. It read 204! I was in shock. For three weeks, I wasn’t able to stick to my fitness routine as much as I wanted to so there was only one way this could have happened: Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine. I truly believe that if I didn’t have these meals, I would have gained at least 5 lbs back.

I was so happy with myself and relieved that I didn’t have to get down on myself. The rest of the week was busy so the gym got skipped a few more times. At the end of the week, I stepped on the scale again and it was at 203. This is the lowest I’ve weighed since I began my weight lost journey. I’m excited to start off next week and get back in the gym. I can’t wait to hit that 200 mark and finally be able to see a 1 instead of a 2.

As of today, I have lost 57 lbs in total but I’m no where near being done! Life gets in the way but you always have to make time to get yourself back in order! As soon as I hit my goal of 200, my next goal is going to be 190 by Thanksgiving. With the help of Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine by my side I know I will accomplish my goals!
