I know I’m not the only one who’s had all of their habits completely thrown out of whack in the last two years. My diet and exercise routine took a backseat, and it got to the point where I knew it was time to stop talking and start taking action.
But then the holidays happened, and who wants to make any lifestyle changes during the most indulgent time of year? So I promised myself once the new year rolled around and party season was well and truly over, I’d make some serious changes to my eating habits.
January came faster than I wanted, but it’s time to focus on me! I needed more of a lifestyle change than a diet, something I can do long-term and not quit a few weeks down the road. My friends have told me a lot about the keto diet and how awesome it made them feel. Its high-fat, low-carb focus has been linked to better brain health, lower cholesterol, and weight loss.
I loved the idea of the keto diet - it ticked every box for me, but my friends would be the first to tell you that it’s no walk in the park! So, I looked online to try and find any hack to make it easier on myself, and that’s how I found Factor.
Factor delivers fully-prepared, gourmet meals directly to my door. Their weekly menu features multiple options for various diets, including keto, plant-based, high-protein, low-carb, low-calorie, dairy-free, Paleo, and vegetarian.
Their keto meals feature high-fat, low-carb recipes that contain 60-90% fat, 20-35% protein, and 5-15% carbs.
Every week they offer at least 11 mouthwatering keto recipes, so you never get bored eating the same thing. Plus, how great would it be to not have to worry about prepping my meals?
The reviews for Factor were glowing, but I was still unsure about trying it for myself. They may ship to my door for free, but it wouldn't be as fresh, healthy, and tasty as people say - right? I figured I had nothing to lose to try it out for a week myself, so I ordered a box.
When my first six meals from Factor arrived, I inspected everything. I was surprised to see such fresh ingredients - all certified free of hormones, antibiotics, gluten, refined sugars, and GMOs. Plus, I love the added benefit of having everything pre-portioned out, so there’s no risk of over-indulging.
The second pleasant surprise - every meal arrives fully prepared and never frozen, so you can heat them and eat them in minutes using the oven or microwave. No prep, no hassle, no left-over ingredients lingering in the fridge. Factor couldn’t make it any easier.
Next up was the taste test, and boy these meals did not disappoint! So delicious. And all of Factor's meals are designed and approved by their in-house staff of registered dietitians who ensure that every meal is full of premium, science-backed nutritional quality.
I never imagined that food that's good for me could also be this good. Factor's Keto Ranch Chicken is delectable. And don't get me started on their amazing Jalapeno Popper Burger! These are meals I’m actually excited to eat!
I was worried that I'd get bored with their selections over time. But Factor always features a rotation of 28 restaurant-quality meals that they switch out each week. And I can mix it up with healthy add-ons like wellness shots, cold-pressed juices and savory soups to keep my carbs down throughout the day. Keto made simple, who knew?!
As for dinner, I simply pop a Spicy Turkey Poblano Bowl into the microwave, and I'm eating like a Keto king in minutes. How easy is that?
Starting at $11 a meal, Factor fits my budget like you wouldn't believe. You can order 4, 6, 8, 12, or 18 meals a week - whatever works for your lifestyle. Skip a week, pause or cancel whenever you need.
Whether you're already following the keto diet, keto-curious, or just want to eat better overall, Factor can help you get on the right track. Their meals have been a game-changer for me, and I never could have stayed Keto this long without them. I’ll be sticking with Factor for the foreseeable; their easy yet amazing meals have been the key to keeping the promise I made to myself. If I can do it, so can you!
