Personal trainer tip: good nutrition in a busy life
Being healthy means more than just getting a good sweat. The holistic, longterm approach to health and wellness at Hyatt Training means we provide members with all the tools and education necessary to be their best selves. That includes having a great nutrition plan. The nutrition component of health can be challenging because it takes planning and time, two things our busy members sometimes have trouble carving out for themselves. As a business owner, personal trainer, father and husband, check out how Hyatt Training owner Jeremy Hyatt keeps his nutrition on track.
“Recently Hyatt Training began a relationship with Fit Kitchen Direct to help our members control some of the food decisions they make each week. I love eating well, but loath (truth) the massive Sunday prep sessions I used to tackle in order to have healthy lunches all week long.
I eat Fit Kitchen for lunch five days a week. They have more than 100 menu items so I rarely see repeat meals and I really appreciate the variety each week. I used to make a big batch of the same meal and eat it all week! Admittedly, I am not a “leftovers” guy. My biggest concern was eating a warmed up lunch out of a plastic container. This has been an absolute non-issue. The meals taste fresh, the vegetables have great texture and the experience has been much better than I expected. And, the containers are recycled / recyclable.
The philosophy I share with my clients is to find a way to control certain meals each week and day. I have found Fit Kitchen Direct to be a really easy way to control lunch five days a week. I even use the Fit Kitchen protein bars with a cup of tea and piece of fruit in the morning for breakfast. Adding breakfast means I have the macro nutrients for two meals, five days a week dialed and controlled. I can’t recommend Fit Kitchen Direct highly enough. To me, the convenience and quality product far outweigh the cost. And I don’t have to navigate the best choices at the food carts, a restaurant or (killer!) the hot food bar!”
Here are the highlights of our program with Fit Kitchen Direct
- You can have the meals delivered to your house on Sundays for a small charge or have them delivered to Hyatt Training free to be picked up Monday morning (when you work out!).
- There are 3 options for meals: Protein (meat), Extra Protein (more meat), Vegan and Whole 30. They also offer protein bars and single chicken breasts.
- All meals are roughly 500 calories and a 40% carb / 30% protein / 30% fat split. This controls calories but also offers the gold standard macronutrient split for most diets. The meals are also free of gluten, dairy and refined sugar (yes, all of them!) There are more than 100 menu items.
