Looking to embark on a long overdue spell of healthy living? The MyZenergy meal and exercise plan could be the kickstart you need.
Door to door delivery food plans sound great but can be hit and miss. Some are too focused on losing weight and involve a gruelling and expensive week of forcing down cabbage juice amid bouts of crippling hunger.
Others just don't stack up on the food quality front offering limp salads and unidentifiable main meals that make nipping in to the McDonald's on the way home a question of when not if.
MyZenergy takes a nice line in putting the emphasis on food you actually want to eat, and with your overall health in mind.
Each day comes a hamper containing three main meals in surprisingly heart portions, plus snacks for mid-morning and mid-afternoon, and a piece of pre-breakfast fruit. It's a specific formula that not only helps avoid any hunger issues for the whole five days, but that helps bed in a daily routine that's actually sustainable once the deliveries stop.
Main meals (eg Grilled salmon with coriander served with bulgar/Monkfish, spinach madras/Grilled chicken and pomegranate served with brown rice) are designed with the office worker in mind - reheatable, with a lunch designed to avoid afternoon slumps and a slightly bigger dinner that's worth looking forward to after a long day.
The fact that your body is only consuming the calories and nutrients it needs (MyZenergy promise no hidden calories or unhealthy fats), your overall calorie intake is way down, without you having to lift a finger in shopping, prepping and cooking.
There's also the option of combining the meal plan with tailored workouts from MyZenergy trainers, motivational text messages and heart-rate monitoring programmes. Great idea, but one step at a time.
