Count Phone Numbers, Not Calories Pt. 2

Two and a half weeks ago, I wrote a post about The Fresh Diet. A food delivery service for us singles that helps them watch their waistline while freeing up the time we usually spend slaving away in the kitchen making a healthy meal.

In my last post, I told you the food looks amazing. Now, I’m happy to tell you it also tastes amazing! It surpassed all my expectations. I signed up for a week-long trial of the program and am on my fifth day of delivery. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying this!

Every morning I wake up excited. It’s like Christmas morning every day. There is a lunch bag sitting just outside my apartment door with three fresh, healthy calorie-controlled meals and two decadent snacks cooked fresh daily in state-of-the-art local kitchens. Of course I chose my own menu for the week so I should know what I’m getting, but who can remember what they picked with so many delectable offerings to choose from.

I have to admit, I am someone who loves cooking. I generally find the time to cook and find it relaxing. I make it a priority. But, after having all my food taken care of this week, I have found a benefit I was not expecting. It’s mentally taxing to try to figure out what to make for dinner every night. My life became surprisingly much less stressful this week. I had no idea how much brainpower I wasted just thinking about what to cook and making sure I had everything I needed from the grocery store. Maybe all that stress over trying to come up with something both tasty and healthy wasn’t worth it. For $29.99/day, someone would take care of all that hassle for me.

Like I said last time, The Fresh Diet is not only easy, convenient, and delicious, it also won’t break the bank either. When you break it out, it’s really pretty damn reasonable. Working in New York City, food is very expensive. Even going grocery shopping in the greater metro area can kill your wallet. Now, of course I wouldn’t normally spend $10 on breakfast, but I also wouldn’t be able to find a healthy tasty meal for dinner for $10, so it all balances out. And to top it off, delivery is FREE!

With all my food worries taken care of, I was able to get out of bed at a later time this week because breakfast and lunch were already prepared. All I needed to do was reheat breakfast and pack up lunch to take to work, and after a hard day at work, dinner was waiting in for me the fridge  when I got home.

Every night, I would place my empty cooler bag back in the hallway excited by the thought of what it would be filled with in the morning — Always exceptionally pleasant surprises.

The Fresh Diet also helps me keep my calories on track. When I went to their website to pick my meals, apparently one day I was very carb heavy. A warning message popped up encouraging me to make an alternative choice for that meal. Most times I made the switch, but some days the choices just sounded too delicious, so I chose to ignore the advice (Whoopsie!). You can also note the foods you dislike. The Fresh Diet will notify you any time you choose something containing any of these items.

I wasn’t the only one excited by The Fresh Diet. Reading my daily menu became a ritual at work. Coworkers were always curious what I brought in, and I even shared a few bites with them after raving how good the food actually is. “Wow! It’s like those eggs were lightly bathed in some amazing basil oil. That’s good!” one of my coworkers exclaimed after I encouraged her to try a bite of my Whole Wheat Breakfast Bruschetta (I brought breakfast and lunch to work that day). I replied, “And I just popped that in the microwave for two minutes.” She was amazed.

In participating in the diet for a week, I came to realize how many extra calories I was consuming every day above what my daily intake should be. Since the food was portioned out for me, I was able to notice the snacking that was sabotaging my workouts at the gym. It became quite an eye-opening experience. I’m curious after the week to see if I’ve shed any pounds — Fingers crossed.

The Fresh Diet really did get me out of the kitchen so I could manage the more important things in life, like dating. It was the perfect week for The Fresh Diet since I had four dates in five days. It gave me the free time to meet some prospective men and not worry about having to go home and eat Kraft macaroni and cheese.

I can honestly say I fully back The Fresh Diet whole-heartedly. It’s rare for me to get behind something without a word of criticism, but I have to say, I have none. The service is impeccable. When I asked if they could deliver my food to my apartment door and not just my lobby, they accommodated my request. It’s definitely something you should at least try out. I was shocked. And to make things even easier, they’re offering a deal: Receive 3 days free with the purchase of a 31 day plan at $29.99 per day” The promo code is: singlmar29 (You can click on their logo in this post to check it out). I highly recommend you give them a shot. You won’t regret it!

So, if you’re like me and are having a hard time being single and fitting everything in (like finding time to write blog posts and cook a healthy dinner 😉 ), then give The Fresh Diet a shot. They’ll not only take care of your waistline and busy schedule; they’ll also entertain your palate like you’d never expect!

Count Phone Numbers, Not Calories

Being single is VERY time-consuming. It’s hard enough trying to find a suitable mate. On top of that, you have to find the time to feed both your metabolic and sexual appetites. There are only so many hours in the day, many of which I waste searching for Mr. Right. Like me, I’m sure you crave companionship, but also can’t neglect the sustenance your body needs to function and look your best when that delicious mate is served up for you.

We all know how difficult it is to cook for one. I genuinely long for the day I can cook a satisfying meal for my husband and I, but until that day comes along, it’s nearly impossible to make anything satisfying/healthy for myself alone. The mere thought of it has me reaching for a bottle of wine (usually a Malbec these days) to serve myself a generous pour in my giant wine glass while listening to sappy soft rock or tuning to an episode of Chelsea Lately on my DVR. So gay. So depressing!

That’s where The Fresh Diet comes in — A new service for singles. It helps free up the time you usually spend slaving away in the kitchen making a healthy meal so you can spend more time counting phone numbers instead of calories. What’s better than fresh, healthy three calorie-controlled meals and two decadent snacks cooked fresh daily in state-of-the-art local kitchens and delivered straight to your door every day. And let’s face it. The food looks amazing! The Fresh Diet gets you out of the kitchen so you can manage the more important things in life, like your social calendar. On top of the added benefit of more free time, you’ll be able to keep your diet in check and your sexy-barometer off the charts!

If you’re anything like me, you not only count calories, but also dollars. Living/working in the New York City metro area is NOT CHEAP. It’s downright expensive, so even the slightest advantage to help you be smart with your dollars can go a long way. The Fresh Diet is not only easy, convenient, and delicious, it also won’t break the bank either. The recession is hurting all our wallets right now. And, let’s face it. You’re probably spending more on fast take-out than you would on The Fresh Diet. Your sabotaging your waistline as much as your hard-earned paycheck. And to top it off, delivery is FREE!

Who isn’t looking for the easiest way to have fresh, nutritionally balanced meals for healthy weight loss. I work hard to make sure I continue to look like that guy in the upper right hand side of your screen holding a towel ;). But when I have no time, the first thing I reach for is never a healthy option. It usually means something like Kraft macaroni and cheese. With The Fresh Diet, I can open my fridge and know I have something waiting to satisfy my palate and help me shed the pounds at the same time — No cooking, no counting, no clean up. According to their website, you can lose 10 pounds this month with The Fresh Diet (average weight loss is 1-3 lbs. per week). Even when I’m counting calories, I cheat. With The Fresh Diet, they deliver 1200-1400 calorie range for women and 1400 – 2200 calorie range for men. Just what I need to be beach-body ready now that it’s getting warmer out. And this isn’t some fad diet that’s gonna have you yo-yo diet until you can’t take it anymore. It’s healthy weight loss.

The good people at The Fresh Diet are also currently running a special offer. Receive 3 days free with the purchase of a 31 day plan at $29.99 per day”. The promo code is: singlmar29. (You can click on their logo in this post to check it out). Now that’s a deal I can get behind! I can’t think of the last time I ate in New York City for $10/day. Now that’s a amazing deal!

So, if you’re like me and are having a hard time being single and fitting everything in (like finding time to write blog posts and cook a healthy dinner 😉 ), then give The Fresh Diet a shot. Let them take care of the work in the kitchen and your waistline.
