You may have noticed a lot of folks in your office microwaving lunches in tiny babsence containers through clear lids. You’ve most likely observed that the food always looks fresh, is never frozen, and also smells delicious. This taken place to me, and also after noticing coemployees eating these tasty looking meals I found that they bought them at My Fit Foods.

Mario Mendias, a former Naval and also personal trainer, began My Fit Foods in Houston, TX because he believed that 80% of health and also fitness results are directly associated to the fuel that you area in your body. Mendias noticed that many of his clients would not listen to him bereason they did not have actually the moment to prepare a healthy and balanced meal or the capability to consistently execute so.

To deal with this difficulty Mendias started making meals in his apartment. My Fit Foods was born.

All the meals that My Fit Foods produce are made with “active foods” that include all natural/non-processed ingredients, lean meats, “good” carbohydprices, heart healthy fats, array of fruits and vegetables, no preservatives and also healthy and balanced sodium arrays.

Having appreciated a couple of meals from My Fit Foods, my girlfrifinish and also I determined to try their 21 Day Challenge which we began on Sunday, September 11th. I have decided to create a series of unbiased posts around my suffer to give you an concept of what it will be choose.

I think I have to be clear about my goals and also why I am doing the obstacle. First, I wanted to break my halittle bit of constantly eating out. While I don’t think that eating out is necessarily negative, it morphed from a fun, occasional treat to a gluttonous eexceptionally day, multiple times a day incident.

With breakfast tacos in the morning, burgers at lunch, and also a nice dinner out at night, I would certainly periodically go weeks without eating a vegetable that wasn’t covered through cheese. Seriously. I kbrand-new that My Fit Foods would gain me in the habit of taking my breakquick and also lunch to occupational and I hope that I have the right to bring this halittle bit forward.

2nd, I wanted to train my body to eat a tiny healthier. Right now, healthy foodstuffs are not even appealing to me. I expect, I like chicken, fish, and also vegetables, yet they are not also on my radar; I am also busy ordering something with cheese or gravy to take notification to the various other choices on the food selection. I am hoping that this endure will certainly let me realize that healthy and balanced food tastes good too

Before you obtain began via the 21 Day Challenge, you accomplish up with an advisor who gives you information about the regime. We met Wynne the Wednesday before we began our obstacle because my girlfrifinish and also I were going out of tvery own and also wanted to eat whatever we wanted at the baseround game (on a side note, the garlic fries are impressive at the Ballpark in Arlington).

Wynne was very friendly and also walked us with the 21 Day program which is separated right into 5 various sections: Fuel, Cleanse, Protect, Strength, and Rejuvenate.

She invested the most time on the Fuel section as this is what My Fit Foods really tries to address. While My Fit Foods does not have a restriction on carbs, one of the core tenets of the 21 Day Challenge is to eat foods that are low on the Glycemic Index (GI). This suggests that you are eating “good” carbs that break down progressively and release glucose progressively right into your bloodstream so that you don’t spike.

High GI foods encompass potatoes, doughnuts and also white bread, all those points that I love to eat. For the next 21 days I will eat foods items choose corn tortillas, sweet potatoes, parboiled rice, quinoa, spinach, and tomatoes. Can’t say I’m as well thrilled at this point in time.

In addition, the routine stresses that you eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day that expectations 3 hours in between each feeding. Wynne said that this is an attempt to train your body to know when it is going to eat so that you are much less hungry and also conveniently handling those smaller meals rather of storing them.

On the 21 Day Challenge, they ask that you don’t drink constant or artificially sweetened sodas (yikes), alcohol (ouch!) or coffee (NO!) and also rather substitute via water and green tea (this was the only caffeine allowed). To be hoswarm, this was probably the toughest component of the difficulty for me. While providing up sodas isn’t a difficulty, most my social interactions happen over drinks and also I choose to do my entrepreneurial things out of a coffee shop. At any rate, I plan on sticking to it.

Wynne likewise told us that we are offered one “cheat” meal a week where we have the right to go eat anypoint we want. There were a pair of caveats: (1) you still can’t drink alcohol or caffeine and (2) it have to be a reasonable sized percent. Tbelow goes my setup to knock out an order of King Kong Nachos.

The Cleanse percent of the talk revolved about talking around your liver and the prominence of drinking many water. This was something else that is going to be challenging because I very seldom drink fluids (unmuch less they are made from tequila or hops). I am expected to drink 80+ ounces of water a day which will be a challenge in itself.

In addition, they indicate this My Fit Foods cocktail made of cranberry juice, lemons, B12, and also apple cider vinegar. I’m a tiny doubtful of these kinds of things, yet since it is more or much less normal ingredients I plan on trying it.

I was not looking forward to the Protect section bereason I observed a list of supplements. I think that supplements are the number one point that turns me off from diet programs, GNC stores, and personal trainers. I don’t recognize, it just has actually never before seemed ideal to me to take all these crazy things.

The My Fit Foods supplements, however, seem to be names that you recognize like: lemon juice, B12, fiber, fish oil, cinnamon, green tea, vitamin C. Tright here were only a couple of that were weird, and also Wynne didn’t attempt to press them on me so I was happy.

The Strength and also Rejuvenate sections can basically be summed up by the following: Exercise 30 minutes a day, three days a week and also obtain 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Fairly standard stuff.

Wynne then asked my girlfrifinish and I all about our likes and also dislikes on food. I shied away from a couple of things including difficult boiled eggs (I can’t stand also them) and fish (if you are not conscious, microwaving fish in the office microwave is NOT COOL). My girlfrifinish ended up acquiring the smaller sized sizes of food and I made a decision on gaining medium portions for breakquick and lunch in addition to a huge percent for dinner.

Over all I had a great endure and was looking forward to founding the 21 Day Challenge on Sunday September 11th. I look forward to giving a recap after each week wbelow I upday you on what I favored and disliked together with my weight (I am starting at 195.4 pounds) and exactly how a lot I lose. If you come throughout me and also I am in a negative mood, just remember I haven’t had a cup of coffee in quite a while.

My girlfrifinish and I were both so excited after talking with Wynne that we promptly headed over to Pericos to celebprice with Tex Mex and also margaritas.

Wait a minute. No Pericos and margaritas for 21 days?

Man, this is going to be tough…
