Q. How is your food packaged?
A. Food is stored in a PBA free, microwave and dishwasher safe food container. When you receive your meal refrigerate it or freeze it and then pop it in the microwave when ready to eat. I recommend adjusting the temperature in your fridge to keep food fresher longer. If you don't plan on consuming immediately I recommend the freezer. Food will remain fresh for the week. The goal is to consume all your meals and not eat out.
Q. Are your meal prep good for weight loss?
A. Yes, We encourage clients to share their weight goals with us so we may portion your meals accordingly. Whether it's to gain or lose weight, a specific calorie goal we will customize your meal to meet those requirements so we can help you in your process. Weight loss takes work and dedication, we recommend incorporating gym routines in your weight journey. Our preps are just a way of getting you on the right path. Our meals are prepped with Extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil, low to no salt, vegan butter, and other low cholesterol/sodium, fat ingredients. All servings are recommendations. Calorie counts may be plus or minus 5-10 calories.
Q. Am I guaranteed to lose/gain weight?
A. Everyone’s body is different and reacts to food differently. Some people lose weight faster than others, but I believe with consistency and gym routines you can definitely reach your goals. Maintaining your calorie intake is very important. I also recommend that what ever you consume outside of my preps are in line with my preps. I encourage you share as much information with me when it comes to your routines so I can try my best to help more accurately and recommend the proper portions/servings to help on your journey to the body/ health you’re trying to achieve. I'm here for support for anyone who needs it.
