Look And Feel Good Series: New Year's Weight Loss Solution

weight loss new year interviewIt's the New Year and you vowed to lose weight. The pressure's on to look and feel good. Whether your doctor suggested you lose weight, or you're re-entering the job market, being overweight isn't in your best interest. But with so many diets to choose from, it's tricky to find one that offers delicious, satisfying foods. What many of us fail to realize is that portioned, balanced meals are key to getting results. If carbohydrates, fats and proteins are not balanced, even the healthiest foods can cause weight gain.

Here's a great weight loss solution. One of the best ways to kick-start weight loss is to re-learn portion control and food balancing. Consider trying a food delivery service, such as Chef's Diet – for one week or two! Having daily balanced low-carb meals and snacks delivered right to your door will not only help with weight loss, but you'll feel better, become accustomed to correct portion sizes and experience some of THE tastiest diet food on the planet. I'm not a spokesperson for Chef's Diet. What I love about their plan is that we lose weight, eat delicious food, and don't have to shop for food or cook meals. It's our healthy New Year's Resolution! Here's how Chef's Diet works:

Meals are prepared with foods you love and customized to suit your taste. The co-founder of Chef's Diet, Michael McDonnell will personally help get you set up. Contact Michael by email and he'll note any allergies or foods you don't like. Be sure to mention "AOL Jobs' Look & Feel Good Series," and Michael will give you a special deep discount and free meals days!

Below is a sample of three days of low-carb, tasty meals that we sampled from Dec. 26 to Dec. 28. I'll be honest with you –we've tried other meal plans and lost weight, but the food was so-so. Chef's Diet easy to stick to because the food is by far, the tastiest delivery I have tried to date! Even my husband agrees.Here's what we've tried so far – delicious!
