Fitlife Foods has the Answer to Your Healthy Aspirations
As a country, we are more aware of what a healthy lifestyle looks like than that of even just a few years ago. Being fit, living a long life that’s free from disorders, disease, cognitive decline, and immobility issues are what most people are striving towards.
Despite our diligent efforts, it’s sometimes challenging to fit in a healthy meal that requires shopping for wholesome ingredients and finding the time to cook those meals amid our busy schedules. With our good intentions of being and staying well, how can we make it easier to eat healthier? That’s where Fitlife Foods fills in the gaps and makes our lives a little less undemanding. Some say, it’s like having a private chef, and we agree.
Fitlife Foods also includes a wellness program for those individuals that need an extra boost to stay on track. Project U is FREE ONE-ON-ONE HEALTH & WELLNESS TRAINING, which is Fitlife’s way of going beyond providing healthy meal choices to support your overall fitness goals. It’s an entire army of diet and workout gurus gathered together to help you feel like a million bucks, but without spending a penny.
We caught up with Fitlife Food’s founder and CEO, David Osterweil to find out more.
Q: Why did you create Fitlife Foods?
A: I realized it was time in my life to combine what I know, which is the food business, with what I love, which is food, health & wellness to solve problems for others.
Q: With all of the diets out there today, do you have Keto, Paleo, and Vegetarian options?
A: When it comes to several of the diets out there, we have a philosophy that the only diet you should be focused on is one that you can sustain 10 years from now. The reason why such diets like Keto, Paleo, Whole30 and many others are rated so low by US News and World Report each year is they not only have negative impacts, but they are unsustainable. At Fitlife Foods we subscribe to the Mediterranean and DASH philosophies where you should be focused on portion size, low glycemic, high fiber carbohydrates, lean protein and healthy fats with the right amount of sodium. Keep it balanced and delicious and in the right portion sizes, which is one of the primary reasons we offer most dishes in small, medium and large sizes.
Q: Tell us more about Project U and the overall objective?
A: Project U is a 100% complimentary program whereby you can make an appointment with one of our wellness coaches. In that free appointment, you can get baseline information like your basal metabolic rate (the number of calories your body burns at rest each day) and your body fat percentage and hydration. The wellness coach will take you through a systematic discussion around exercise your weekly nutrition to help you think through each week and how to tackle it from a nutrition standpoint. Most people do not plan their food like they plan the rest of their work like they do with work and family, but when you do, you are setup for better results each week.
Q: Who is the perfect candidate for Fitlife Foods, and why should individuals want to incorporate these meal plans into their lifestyle?
A: Everyone! Fitlife Foods was built for success minded people who value their time, their health and great flavor. Whether someone wants to come into a store and get one meal or grab meals for the week or they want them delivered for the week, we are there for our customers! We have been doing prepared meals better and for longer than any other company in the country and with that, having retail stores and a delivery platform allows 100% focus on the customer.
