My Fit Foods offers an array of protein plates, so you’ll have many tasty options to choose from when it comes to lunches and dinners (fish, shrimp, turkey, beef, chicken, pork). I recommend trying the salmon if you like fish and the Greek Goddess Salad with chicken. 98% of the meals are gluten-free, and there are a handful of spicy meals if that’s your preference. The company does a good job appealing their meals to many different audiences.
The Oat Bake bowl was a tasty oatmeal breakfast option with chopped strawberries. If you think oatmeal is boring, try this meal! It’ll change your opinion almost definitely. My favorite snack was the Healthy Hummus Bowl. This mid-day meal consisted of a mix of veggies, grilled chicken stripes and a small cup of Hummus, though I would’ve enjoyed a bigger cup. (So this is what portion control feels like…). It was hard at first to get into the routine of eating only what was on my plates each day, but on the third day, I found myself getting accustomed to the challenge.
The toughest challenge for me was giving up coffee during those three days. I’ve worked in the PR and marketing industry for a couple of years and got hooked on drinking coffee every morning to help kick-start my day. My Fit Foods recommends drinking no coffee, alcohol or sodas if you’re participating in the challenges. Instead, I was allowed to drink water (a LOT of it), green tea and the My Fit Cocktail. The cocktail flavor was a mix of cranberry juice, freshly squeezed lemons, cherry-flavored B12, and a dash of apple cider vinegar. It didn’t taste like a grainy drink you’d buy at the gym. I made this drink once a day during the three-day challenge because I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was also supposed to drink 80+ ounces of water a day, which is a challenge alone. The water and the cocktail help cleanse the body, especially the liver.
Overall, if you’re looking to make a serious nutritional change to your lifestyle, I’d suggest trying out My Fit Foods. It seems worth the investment for the 21-day plan (near $600 for women) since you won’t be buying many groceries for three weeks. The consumers should also not forget to exercise a few days a week as well. My Fit Foods helped me control my eating portions, and the food and drinks provided a sense of energy during my challenge days.
Currently, you can find My Fit Foods locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Idaho and California.
