This article is written by Dan Scalco*

If you find it hard to stick to a diet, you aren’t alone. Making a big lifestyle change isn’t always easy to commit to for the long haul. Fortunately for you, a meal delivery services can help you get results with your diet and sustain them.

This article contains the top six ways a meal delivery service such can help you get your diet on track.

Let’s get started!

1. Portion-Controlled Meals Prevent Overeating

The Truth About Sustainable Seafood: Farmed vs. Wild Fish

Most health and nutrition experts agree that Americans should increase their consumption of fish. Fish are high in protein and low in calories, cholesterol and saturated fat. Some varieties also are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found to decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke. Because of these health benefits, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015 recommended that adults eat 8 ounces of fish a week. Americans currently eat only half that amount. But which is better – farmed or wild fish?

Snack It Up!

It's Superbowl time! February 5th will be the day to gather round the TV and cheer on your favorite team with your friends, and Superbowl snacking is an integral part of the Superbowl experience. Melty, cheesy, gooey dips...salsa and chips...wings...appetizers galore...it almost beats the holidays when it comes to food. It's also a day of many, many less than healthy foods. Splurge days are totally okay (and a must!) but you can save yours and have it all with these healthy AND delicious snack ideas!

Ways to Jazz Up Your Top Chef Omelets

Omelets are one of the most amazing meals around – you just really can't go wrong with eggs! And while they're good, plain and simple, sometimes we prefer to jazz ours up. We feature many different omelets on our menu from the good 'ole cheese omelet to our Mexican salsa omelet. There's always room for improvement though, so here are a few condiments that will upgrade your Top Chef omelets and take them to the next level!

Thank You and a Look Ahead

As the year ends, we at Top Chef Meals want to sincerely thank you for choosing to eat with us in 2016. We greatly appreciate our customers and the valuable feedback provided throughout the year - feedback we've taken to heart and for which we are grateful. We hope you'll continue sharing your thoughts with us in 2017, as we work to make our meals even better and more delicious.

How To Reduce Food Waste

Let's talk about food waste. Every year between 30-40% of food in the U.S. goes to waste as it makes its way through the supply chain—that’s equivalent to two out of five bags of groceries never making it onto your plate. Unbelievable, right? Especially because consumers don't even realize they're doing it a lot of the time. But those random slices of bread and eggs that are a bit past their expiration date add up. Then consider this - food production uses 10% of our total energy budget, 50% of our land and a whopping 80% of all freshwater consumed. In fact, producing the food consumers throw away generates more greenhouse gases than most entire countries do. So as consumers we are not just being wasteful, we're hurting our environment too!

Stress-Free is the Way to Be!

In this day and age, the less stress the better! Top Chef Meals was created with that goal in mind – with our meal delivery system, you can take comfort in knowing your elderly parent, friend or family members, AND yourself are taken care of every night – keeping delicious, healthy, easy and convenient meals on the table, delivered right to their door! How can we remove stress from your life? Let us count the ways...

Nutrition Awareness

We talk a lot about the pros and cons of ordering from meal subscription services here at Top Chef Meals – everything from FAQs to how to choose the best service for yourself and family – because we want you guys to have the best meal experience you possibly can, all while getting in great nutrition. We know you've heard it before, but proper nutrition and eating the right foods, will affect your health (positively!) in so many ways. Unfortunately, however, as a nation, we are increasingly eating more processed foods. Our supermarkets are full of convenient packaged foods that appeal to our taste buds, but compromise our nutrition. And it's easy to fall into a pattern of eating fast, convenient, prepared food, especially in our often frenetic lives.

WHITE PAPER: How to Choose the Best Meal Delivery Service

Diet Meal Plans

Forget the teaser prices and slick marketing pictures, you want a company with the food quality, ethics, culture, delivery methodology and costs that suits your needs.

The Best Way to Introduce Your Parents to Top Chef Meals

Helping Seniors enjoy Home delivered Meals

We have so many happy, repeat customers here at Top Chef Meals (and we're so thankful for you all!), but for every success, there are just as many “picky” parents who have rejected the switch to home delivered meals. Are our parents REALLY that picky or is it something else? While it's true that our sense of taste and smell change as we age, making us like or dislike things differently than we once did, it doesn't make us quite THAT picky. Through follow ups we have conducted with these "picky" parents, what we've discovered is that the real culprit is not the food but the presentation and lack of knowledge on how to successfully heat the meals properly.
