Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s Weight Loss Journeys: Katie Allen

Weight Loss Journeys_ Katie Allen (1)
Five years ago, I was the best shape of my life. I consistently made it to the gym every day, ate healthy and got plenty of sleep. I never understood how it could be hard for someone to do these things, because for me it came so naturally.

Fast forward five years and two babies later. About 6 months ago I was in the worst shape of my life with my weight being 170 pounds. After having my son, I returned to the gym with the same fire I previously had and started ordering meals from Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine. I started off with their Paleo menu but switched to their Custom plan and have been on that ever since.

After about five months, I lost 40 pounds and was almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight.  But in April I traveled to Colorado and unfortunately completely cheated on my diet. In the time since then I’ve had ups and downs and it has become harder to find that motivation to stay on track.  I haven’t made it to the gym as much as I should, and in addition to my Fresh ‘N Fit meals, I haven’t been watching my macros as strictly as I normally have. I’ve felt like I have been trapped in someone else’s body for the last month.

It is time for a change! It’s time to establish a new routine and stick to it. I’ve recently signed up at Lifetime fitness where they have babysitting with the goal of relieving some of the stress that came from bringing my son and having to watch him while I was at my CrossFit classes.

I also want want to incorporate new things into my fitness regimen like Yoga, Pilates and some of the other classes I have never tried. Fortunately, Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s meals have remained the constant throughout my trials and tribulations.

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.

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.

Meet Ashley Witter, Fresh ‘N Fit Advocate

By: Ashley Witter

My personal story started back in 2015 when I was working at a high level “stressful” corporate job and had gained close to 40 lbs. I resigned from that job in 2015 and decided to finally take control of my health.

In 11 months, I lost 95 lbs by learning how to eat the “right” food for optimize my weight loss efforts along with being physically active. I met David Rogers with Fresh & Fit Cuisine about 8 months ago while on my health journey and found to love what Fresh & Fit Cuisine represented. I teach at Kennesaw State University as the Health Coach Instructor and I teach my students to follow the Dietary Guidelines of Choose My Plate.

What is great about Fresh & Fit is that it is locally based in Atlanta and provides people with healthy delicious meals easily.

It takes the hassle out of trying to figure out what to buy in the grocery store and prepare at home. It also follows the myplate.com standards of the 9″ plate portion control breakout of consumption with  nutrient dense proteins, carbs, dairy, fruit & veggies in every meal. Meals are specific to people with various health issues as well as just a standard healthy mix.   As I mentioned before, Fresh & Fit has helped myself and others meet their nutrition and fitness goals without having to plan, cook or settle for a frozen, high sodium, preserve meals.  I am looking forward to being part of this great team and using a product that I truly believe can help us all in our weight loss efforts.

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.
