I’ve always struggled to maintain a healthy weight.
My dad, mom, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousin and siblings are all overweight.
I grew up with tons of snacks in the house at all times. I always had access to potato chips, ice cream, cookies and candy. My mom just loved to cook a breakfast of bacon, sausage and eggs and my dad would pick up a dozen donuts. We often took advantage of the drive-thru for dinner. Pizza, burgers and take-out chicken were staples of our diet. Once I moved away from home, I got determined to get in better shape. I joined a gym and signed up with a personal trainer. The trainer strongly recommended that I also consult with a nutritionist. He said that even though I was regularly exercising and becoming more active, I needed a balanced diet in order to achieve peak health and fitness. The nutritionist has been super helpful to me. She provided a great deal of information on how to adjust my eating habits. However, when I go grocery shopping or cook for myself, I have trouble sticking to the meal plan. I tend to buy unhealthy treats and cook too large of portions for myself. The perfect solution has been to enroll in a meal plan with delivery service. They offer a wide range of exceptionally nutritional meals that are delicious and portion controlled. I can have the meals delivered or pick them up. I am able to track my calorie intake and not worry about overeating. The servings are the perfect size to satisfy my hunger.
