So what’s the skinny on THE fresh diet?


I love to cook, I love to entertain and I love to eat, sometimes I get confused between eating to live and living to eat, depending on what is going on in my life! I was well on my way with a healthy makeover in 2010 and then 2011 hit and pow I hit a wall, well not literally but figuratively it was just NOT my year and at the end of December I looked at myself and had a heart to heart and vowed to take back my life in 2012.

I jumped on THE fresh diet’s bandwagon and many of my facebook buddies have asked me what in the world is this and where does that delicious food come from? So I thought I’d do a post on the “skinny” of what I know so far about the company.

THE fresh diet is the next best thing to having a chef in your home who cooks healthy cuisine. I am NOT looking at this as a “diet” per say we all know I think that is a 4 letter word… however, I do hope to lose weight, inches and get back control while eating this food.

The company is based out of Miami, however my food comes from a kitchen in Brooklyn New York and is sent down every night on a refrigerated truck and then magically appears at my home each morning before breakfast. All I have to do is take it out of the refrigerated bag and put in the fridge until each meal time.

The calorie intake is between 1200 and 1400 calories a day, for women, which consists of Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack, and Dessert. Yes, I did say dessert! Which I believe is important so one does not feel deprived…

How is this all done you ask? It’s as simple as a click! All one has to do is go to their website and sign up. I called the company as I have a few pretty distinctive food allergies and wanted to make sure they could accommodate me. I had a great conversation with one of their sales team members and set up everything with her. However, it is very easy to get all set up virtually. You would enter your weight and height and from that point you would begin to choose what you would like for your meals. You have a choice of 4 options per meal, which I love. There is even a veggie choice for those who do not eat meat. Another cool feature that they offer is a “dislike” basket so if you have a food you don’t like or like me a food I’m allergic to you would put that in the dislike basket and if you attempt to order anything that has a smidge of that ingredient it will alert you! How great is that?

It’s as simple as that… so that’s the skinny! You ready to start and join me?
