Working in the field of internet marketing for over 6 years, is the founder DigitalOlympus.net online conference.
Eating habits are laid in childhood. If you are at a young age and taught zakarmlivali overeat, then start to eat properly - not an easy task. Okay, now on the market there are plenty of services delivery to cook healthy food. In this article I'll show you how I managed to lose weight with their help, and to compare the different feeding programs.
As a child I was a complete child, then in 18 years, I stopped eating fatty, sweet and flour, and easily lost weight up to 50 kg. But then to 27 years due to sedentary lifestyle and frequent trips I have gained weight, and at the end of last year, the balance showed me 56 kg. Then I realized I had to change something, for example, choose a suitable power supply system, and strictly adhere to it. I did not have time and opportunity to prepare healthy food, so I went to look for companies that deliver to cook healthy meals.
I tested four service delivery of healthy food in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Programs are designed in five meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, dinner and second dinner.
Now let's take a closer look each service separately: that you liked, did not like and why.
- Where it works: St. Petersburg.
About this service, I learned in 2015, when he was indecently expensive: the trial day was worth 4500 rubles. I really wanted to try it, but the food on the wing of the aircraft price did not fit into the budget.
In 2017 I was given a second chance Eat2Fit. At that time, the service has revised the cost of long-term supply programs. An additional argument for choice in his favor was the fact that all programs develop professional nutritionists.
I decided to test day and take a picture that I brought.
What we liked:
1. Very tasty lunch: cottage cheese tartlet with hazelnuts and raisins.
2. Beef Stroganoff with couscous was also excellent.
3. Cod with asparagus and sauce Napoli was very tender and juicy.
4. In Eat2Fit to each portion was attached tea, chewing gum, wet wipes and bottled water. Or other services not offered a bonus, or asked him a fee.
That did not like:
1. Porridge for breakfast was like a tasteless substance. And in Spring rolls with cheese and an apple, I almost did not find the cheese. Hence the question: where is my source of protein, which is essential to weight loss when I lose muscle?
2. In the afternoon brought fresh fruit. It's very hard, because of the thermally processed fruit appetite increases.
3. For lunch, I was waiting for the sour fruit drink, which I poured into the sink. Still worth it to add to it at least a little sugar.
Overall, I liked the food, but I decided to test other services to compare and find the best.
- Where it works: St. Petersburg, Moscow, have branches in other major cities.
delivery service of healthy food from Ekaterinburg. The company initially is IT-projects and has nothing to do with a nutritionist, a healthy lifestyle and medical approach to nutrition. When she began working in St. Petersburg, I immediately decided to try it. To begin with took no correction, and the usual daily diet in order to test different programs.
At breakfast brought scrambled eggs with cheese and tomatoes. According to the rigidity it was rather similar to the sole, than scrambled eggs - have long to cut it with a knife.
At lunch, it went horribly inedible granola with sour yogurt.
For lunch, it was suggested to try the salad with baked beetroot, onions and feta cheese, the second - eel with teriyaki sauce, and garnish was stewed rice with vegetables. As a first course I was waiting for a thick carrot soup with ricotta. Eel soup I liked, but the figure turned out to be dry, the salad was mediocre.
At lunch I was waiting for a delicious and hearty fruit smoothies with ricotta cheese.
Dinner seemed strange. Salad with bresaola, pear and pomegranate - it's not an easy meal. In addition, the dried meat - difficult to digest product. But in general I liked the salad.
- Where it works: Saint Petersburg - Moscow.
The company emerged relatively recently at the St. Petersburg market. On the site it offers to leave the contacts for connection with a nutritionist to help it calculate the calorie content. But the information about who their nutritionist and what his education, there is that doubt. However, we must pay tribute: in the menu, which is brought together with the daily ration, according to the layout was BZHU.
Overall Eat4Health recalled restaurant food average quality, where you will not feed the delights of scallops or molecular cuisine, but a portion will bring a tasty and large. And it is always captivated my heart!
What we liked:
1. Eating a lot, but the most important thing is that it is not just edible, but really very tasty.
2. Cheesecakes were delicious. Of course, do not diet, but they are just like a child!
3. Udon with shrimp brought just bombichesky. All that I love: pasta more, seafood, lots of butter. Mm-m!
4. chocolate pancakes were very personal, although a little rubber.
That did not like:
1. Presnovato porridge for breakfast. I improved her taste, add the jam out of the refrigerator.
2. The turkey was dry, it saved only ketchup.
As a result, it is very edible food that is likely to have little to do with healthy eating in terms of a nutritionist. It is suitable to those who have tired of freezing and dumplings, and can afford to spend on food about 60-70 thousand a month.
- Where it works: St. Petersburg.
I decided to start a business lunches and complement their breakfast. As I learned later, this format is designed to 2000 kcal per day, which was contrary to my goal of losing weight. Also, I eat this food only on weekdays, and on weekends the restaurant and do not limit yourself.
A few weeks later, I realized that it is inefficient, and switched to a full diet. In the first week I ate the program, calculated on 1600 calories a day, a week later - on 1400 kcal and more in a week began to consume 1200 calories.
Expenditure on food per month rose to 80 000 (now 100 000), but I stopped going to restaurants, which left a solid part of the budget.
So, what I ate?
For breakfast, usually porridge. Sometimes there were multizlakovye pancakes or pancakes with curd. There is also a mess always served something a protein, such as egg dishes or cheese. I was always fresh.
At lunch, always dessert. Baking is a few times a month, and every time I'm looking forward to it.
For lunch, always three dishes: a salad, soup, main and a drink (juice or compote). Of all the things I ate, I liked the pasta and risotto with seafood as well as chicken and turkey sous-view - very juicy and tasty.
At lunch you will find something easy fruit and cheese, sometimes bring desserts yogurt or plain yogurt.
Dinner usually consists of fish and heat-treated vegetables. Sometimes meatballs of veal or venison.
The second dinner - yogurt, fermented baked milk or yogurt.
That did not like:
- Omelets with fresh vegetables.
- Salads with celery I never liked.
- Lasagna meat or fish. Those who ate a real lasagna bolognese in Italy, the diet version is not exactly very priglyanetsya.
- Some of the desserts on the basis of yogurt strongly stale, and you want something else.
After the transition to the regime in 1200 calories a day and the results of any changes I have not noticed, but honestly ate only "a la carte". Then I make an appointment with a dietitian that service. It is, incidentally, praised me for a smooth transition to a low calorie content. Because this approach my body did not feel the stress of reducing calories, and therefore, did not oppose the process of losing weight.
At the reception a nutritionist I learned a lot of other interesting and non-obvious things:
- Between meals must be an interval of 2,5-3 hours. And I made a big break (5:00) between afternoon tea and dinner, because I could not eat dinner early because of work.
- Sequence dishes matters. I could at the beginning of the day to eat the most delicious, such as lunch or change lunch and dinner places, and salad to score, but you can not do, even if the weather the limit of 1 200 calories per day. Daily ration conceived so as to run fat burning processes in the body precisely in that combination, in which it is made.
- If you want to have ahead of time, you must first have a drink of water, and if it does not help - go in search of a healthy meal.
Consultation with a nutritionist and follow the correct diet yielded the results: I lost 3 kg in two months and got into high school jeans.
But other than that, I'm still doing horse riding three times a week. It is not CrossFit and cardio, so let's be conditionally considered horse riding for little physical activity, which also played a role.
If you want to improve your health and lose weight at the expense of proper nutrition, then choose the services, which the menu is developing a professional nutritionist. Then you will not worry about the calorie and the balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and be able to take advice from a nutritionist who will choose the best diet for you.
Pay attention to the packaging and delivery of food if it will bring the summer in the package, a portion of the ingredients may not live up to the meeting with your refrigerator. Therefore, I advise you to choose the services that are delivered in portions of the cooler bag.
What about the winner, then it can not be, because it all depends on your taste preferences.
