The Glycemic Index (GI) is a popular and excellent tool for assisting you in determining which foods are best to eat or avoid for managing glucose (blood sugar) levels or for weight loss. Think of it as a popularity contest for carbohydrates. Good carbs are more popular, while bad carbs don’t have many friends. The GI is literally a ranking system for carbohydrates on a scale from 0-100, according to how much they raise blood sugar levels after eating. The great thing about our low GI menus is that you do not have to wait until you reach your weight-loss goals to start seeing results. The vast majority of our Autoship subscription members see weight loss results quickly, and have reported being able to reduce blood pressure and diabetes medications. Some have even able to come off of them entirely and are able to maintain healthier weight and a healthier lifestyle with one of our Personal Chef To Go meal plan services. Why wait to see results, when you can begin today? Continue reading

You’ve been exercising and getting outdoors regularly, but now it’s summer — and hot. It’s sometimes even dangerously hot and seemingly too hot to go work out or pursue any activity beyond a dark movie theatre or staying cool indooors. Don’t decide this is the time for a little summer break from fitness or other outdoor activities, experts say, because you may be hurting yourself in the longer term. It’s important to continue moving over... Continue reading

Summer has finally arrived! It’s time to dig out the barbeque grills and deck furniture or even whip out the bikinis and take off for some well-deserved relaxation on the beach, lake or river. For many of us, summer also brings the temptations of ice cream, overdoing the tan and forgetting the summer diet and exercise. We suggest you consider these 5 tips: 1. Stay cool and hydrated. Drink water, at least two to four... Continue reading

Mother’s Day is almost here. The day to celebrate the woman who brought you into the world or to celebrate the woman who gave you children. Or both. Flowers are a lovely gift (in those instances where the recipient gets what you actually ordered) but they’re not always an original or personal gift. You can cook. Mom will appreciate a homemade meal from you, even if you’re not all that good at it. However, if... Continue reading
