I receive a lot of questions from CNC readers about Designed to Fit Nutrition, a custom meal plan business that I started with my friend Kerrie a little over a year ago. It’s been a whirlwind experience so far, and, HOLY COW, do we have some exciting stuff on the agenda in the coming months. I can’t wait to share all of the awesome news with you guys!
In the meantime, I wanted to share some “Client Spotlights” from our blog, which will give you an idea what DTFN is all about. Additionally, check out our blog for details about our first podcast with Fit Bottomed Girls, why our plans only include 3 days, how to eat intuitively on a meal plan, why micronutrients are important, all about our coaches, and so much more!
Lyndsey joined DTFN when KFIT put on an 8-week fitness challenge. She was already a member at KFIT and once Kerrie had put on a nutrition lecture, she was hooked and wanted to buy a meal plan! Lyndsey thought, “Would I be able to do it? Would I buy it and go off and do my own thing as I had done so many times before on all of the other fad diets I attempted?” After 4 weeks, she said it was the BEST experience. Lyndsey’s weight didn’t change much, but her entire body composition changed! She ended up buying another 8-week program. “During my 12 weeks with DTFN, I have accomplished things I never thought were possible. I ran my fastest 5k, lifted heavier weights, have better endurance, and FQ’d my first CrossFit Open.”
Lauren purchased the 8- week Marcos & Meals plan and was “thrilled to find a meal plan that offered me new recipes each week, but also allowed me to keep making some of my favorite go-to meals.” She learned the importance of meal prepping for a few hours a week and also realized how it easy it was to get back on track after vacation because “DTFN is delicious and realistic!”
Together they lost a total of 95 pounds – and both Walter and Alicia experienced some outstanding non-scale victories. Alicia’s doctor wanted to put her on medication for both her blood pressure and cholesterol, but she was committed to losing weight. After 12 weeks of DTFN, she went back for another check-up and everything was back in normal range! After starting a DTFN meal plan, Walter gave up his acid reflux medication! Talk about Non-Scale Victories! “It’s the first diet we’ve done that hasn’t felt like a punishment.”
Kelly was experiencing a major workout and food rut. She knew she needed to change something because her bad habits were beginning to catch up with her. A few weeks later, she decided it was time to sign up with DTFN. Her intent was to do a 4-week plan, but she felt so great during that time, she ended going doing another 6 weeks and said it was the best decision. “A weight has been lifted, both figuratively and literally and I seriously cannot thank Kerrie enough for working with me and getting me back on track.”
Lea-Ann had noticed a post about DTFN on Facebook and that’s all it took for her to sign up! She was low on energy and knew she needed to get to a healthier weight. Lee-Ann was worried about starting a meal plan because she is a bit of a picky eater, but every menu option was delicious and “nothing went into the trash.” During her time with DTFN, she lost 42 pounds (and continues to lose on her own with the tools she learned from DTFN)! “This is by far the best money I have ever spent on a nutrition plan. I refuse to call this plan a “diet” because it is not a diet. It is a true lifestyle change.”
