Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s Weight Loss Journeys: Farrah Galloway

Weight Loss Journeys_ Farrah Galloway
This week in our latest installment of our Weight Loss Journeys series, we check in with Farrah Galloway. Over the past couple of years, Farrah has struggled to lose weight and after she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, she fell into the routine of eating unhealthy food. She explains, Because I didn’t feel good…I didn’t eat well.

Enter Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s clean, portion controlled meals. After meeting with our Registered Dietitian, a course of action was formulated and our Low Carb menu was introduced into her diet.

During the first few weeks of eating our meals and regular workouts at her neighborhood CrossFit box, she lost 6 lbs!

She explains, “For the first time in awhile, the numbers on my scale are going down! My clothes are fitting better and my energy levels are amazing. I’m sleeping better and Fresh ‘N Fit’s Low Carb meals makes it so simple to keep my calories on track.”

The ease and convenience of Fresh ‘N Fit’s macro-based meals has made such a big difference in her life. As a mom of 3, her busy schedule means she’s always on the go but since her gym is also a Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine pickup location, when she’s done with her WOD, she just grabs her meals to take home and enjoy.

Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s Weight Loss Journeys: Chris Beck

 

Weight Loss Journeys_ Chris Beck (1)
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.”

Finding Balance in The Workplace

Let Fresh 'N Fit's Nutrition Coaches Help You Find Balance In The Workplace
By: Natalie Logan, RD LD, Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine
Finding balance can be tough these days with so many demands from work, home, and family to name a few.  We’re not getting any younger and we all know that things definitely don’t get any easier!  Taking charge of your health is a big part of how you feel, perform, sleep and move whether you realize it or not.

Have you ever sat at your desk for hours on end and felt more tired when your work day was over even though you didn’t move that much?  Maybe you went out for lunch and had a burger with fries and a soda and so felt miserable afterwards that all you wanted to do is take a nap?

What you do consistently day in and out will add up to how you feel from the inside out.  Good news is that it’s never too late to take charge of your health and start to feel great immediately by moving a little more and making healthier food choices.

Here are some suggestions to help you move in the right direction to be a more productive person at work, home and in life!

  • Get moving! It’s easy to track your steps and challenge yourself with a Fitbit, Garmin watch, Apple watch, Apps on your phone.  Aim for 10,000 steps or more each day!  Make sure to get up every hour at the desk even if only to stretch your legs.
  • Portion Distortion! Did you know that most people consume 3 or 4 times bigger a portion than what they really need.  Just because it fits on your plate doesn’t mean you have to eat it all.  Time to do a hunger check– are you satiated after eating only half the plate?  Is your plate filled with half a plate of veggies, a palm or two of lean protein and some fruit?
  • What are you drinking? Ideally you want to shoot for ½ your body weight in ounces of water at a minimum to give your body what it needs.  Watch out for the sugary coffee drinks, sweet teas, juices and sodas as that can lead to unwanted weight gain and make you feel not your stellar self!
  • Make YOU a priority! Plan out your meals during the weekend for the week (go to grocery, prep meals, be ready!) When can you exercise?  Getting at least 7 or more hours of sleep each night?  Reducing your stress?

These are just a few things that will help to keep you on track to being the best you can be as a parent, spouse, friend, worker and so much more!

Seriously?!? The madness has to stop.

 

appetizer-close-up-cucumber-406152

I’m here to warn you about 5 fat loss myths that most people fall for. This might come across as a soapbox rant, and for that I apologize, but trust me when I say that this is a message that needs to be spread. Your fat loss depends on it.

Don’t waste your time on these:

This is a Myth: Diet pills will help you lose fat.

It’s so tempting! The commercials make compelling claims about the power of diet pills, but don’t fall for it. The ‘magic pill’ has yet to be discovered (it has been discovered – exercise. It’s just not in pill form…). Diet pills are more likely to damage your health and burn your pocketbook than to slim you down. Don’t pop a pill—instead burn calories with exercise.

This is a Myth: You should starve yourself to lose fat.

Attempting to lose weight by starving yourself is not only ineffective, it’s also dangerous. It may seem that severe calorie restriction would deliver the quickest weight loss, but your body is complex and by doing so you’ll disrupt your metabolism and slow your results. Don’t starve yourself—instead eat healthy small meals throughout the day.

This is a Myth: Lots of crunches will flatten your abs.

We all want our midsection to look toned as we stroll down the beach, but excessive crunches aren’t the answer for tight abs. In order to achieve a lean look you’ll have to focus on burning off the layer of fat that is covering up your abs. Don’t obsess about crunches—instead focus on fat burning.

This is a Myth: Eat packaged diet foods for speedy results.

It is amazing to see the kinds of foods that are packaged as ‘diet’ or ‘weight loss’ aids. More often than not these products are packed with refined sugar and other artificial ingredients that your body doesn’t need. Don’t eat packaged diet foods—instead stick with nutritious whole foods.

This is a Myth: You have to avoid carbs to lose fat.

Carbohydrates have been given a bad rap, which is unfortunate because you can (and should) eat carbs while losing weight. The key is to stick with whole grains, oatmeal and brown rice while avoiding processed and refined flours and sugars. Don’t swear off all carbohydrates—instead stick with wholesome carbs.

Now that you know what not to do in order to look great this summer, it’s time to go over your beach ready game plan.

DO THIS FIRST: Cut out the junk.

The best way to do this is to start by purging your kitchen. Get rid of sugary, processed and fat-filled foods. Once the junk has been cleared out don’t buy any more of it. Remember that your beach ready abs depend on what you eat – don’t eat junk!

DO THIS SECOND: Focus on whole foods.

Replace the junk food in your life with plenty of the following: cooked and raw vegetables, fresh fruits, whole grains, moderate amounts of seeds and nuts, lean meats and low fat dairy. Clean eating really is that simple.
