Deciding to go on a diet is quite easy, but committing to one is an entirely different story. This is why some people choose to rely on pre-packaged meals prescribed by nutrition and weight loss “experts”—they take the guesswork out of what one should eat and how much. Sure, it’s much easier to meet a strict 1,000-calorie-a-day requirement if you’re eating boxed meals, but leading a genuinely healthy life takes more than just fulfilling caloric limits.
Ultimate Health & Weight Loss in Central New Jersey recognizes the challenges of weight loss, which is why they advocate a program based on the unique physical makeup of an individual.
Here are a few reasons boxed food diet programs do not contribute to good long-term nutrition:
- False Commitment: It’s easy to fulfill a strict 1,000-calorie-a-day requirement if you’re eating boxed meals because they take the guesswork out of what to eat and how much. On the other hand, however, if you eat these pre-packaged meals without question, you’re not learning how to make healthy food choices, and any amount of weight loss you achieve will be short lived.
- Higher Cost: If you live on your own, the cost of boxed meals won’t be much of an issue; however, if you live with your family, your weekly food budget could double or triple. In addition to purchasing your own pre-packaged diet meals, you still have to buy groceries for the rest of your family.
- Lack In Nutrition: Since its main goal is weight loss, boxed diet meals usually eliminate as many calories, carbs, and fat from your system. However, these meals can also lack various vital nutrients the body needs to function properly and avoid illness. The weight loss goal is achieved, but the nutritional value suffers.
