How I Broke the Junk-Food Cycle
A few months ago, I was in a rough spot: I was eating horribly and felt blah. Too often, I ate junk working on the morning shift and struggled to align healthy eating habits with my busy family — including my 3-year-old son with food allergies.
I fell victim to pizza. And cheeseburgers.
I needed something better. I scoured through all the promotional materials for all the different meal delivery services, and let me tell you, Personal Trainer Food is the best program for me and my whole family. Not only do they offer several different packages and options, you can reduce your costs by signing up for a regular subscription.
Personal Trainer Meals sends you pre-cooked food frozen for ultimate flexibility. When you microwave a meal and put it on a black plate, the food looks just like something you'd get in a restaurant.
I can grab a protein and a veggie, or whatever I need, and microwave it for a healthy option—even when I'm groggy in the morning or talking with my inquisitive toddler. My wife is pregnant with our second child and currently battling some morning sickness, so she can grab something from Personal Trainer Meals when she feels like it or do her own thing knowing there are plenty of convenient options for the rest of us.
My son, Lennox, and I have a little tradition when the box arrives: We pack away the proteins and veggies into the freezer and then play with the left over dry ice. With his allergies, there are a lot of things Lennox can't eat, but he has plenty of options here.
My main goal wasn't weight-loss, but when I poked around on their website, I saw several great success stories. Results can vary due to several factors and are not guaranteed, but Meghan lost 36 pounds in 12 weeks:
Their menu includes omelets, peppered chicken, homestyle meatloaf, smoked BBQ pork ribs, meatballs, green onion sausage, butter roasted chicken breast, fajita chicken for salads, etc. They offer tons of resources for those who want to lose weight, both in the delivered kits and on their Facebook page:
