My Husband Was Ready for a Transformation – How This Chef-Crafted, Dietitian-Designed Meal Plan Made It Happen

My sweet husband Joe has battled with his weight since I’ve known him, but this year he decided he was going to do something about it. After tipping the scales at 250 pounds in September, he was ready for his big change.

Since then, he’s lost a total of 27.8 pounds (GO BABE!!!) and is nearly halfway to his goal of 60 pounds lost. Want to know his secret weapon? Keep reading…

Weight loss on-the-go

Joe and I are both busy, self-employed hustlers who work 6 days a week. The biggest difference between Joe and me is that I get the benefit of working from home while he’s usually on the road as a realtor.

In fact, he credits his busy work schedule and being on the road as his primary cause for gaining so much weight. Before starting his weight-loss transformation, he was relying on fast food to feed his grumbling tummy between showing houses, and he often chose where he ate based on how long the line was.

What changed the game for Joe was weekly deliveries of truly delicious calorie & portion-controlled meals from Trifecta. No longer did he have to hit the drive-thru line of the closest chain–he could heat up a macro-balanced meal from Trifecta instead.

Dishes that actually keep you full

At the outset of Joe’s transformation, we started packing him lunches to make sure he had plenty of healthy options to choose from when his hunger pangs started.

While we found some easy, tried-and-true options to stuff his lunchbox with (think: carrot sticks & hummus, low-fat yogurt & berries, and low-carb egg wraps stuffed with turkey), keeping things fun and interesting proved to be another part-time job for us both.

That’s where Trifecta has come to the rescue! Each week, Joe receives a huge box of 10 tasty, Paleo-friendly, gluten-free, GMO-free, low-fat, low-sugar, low-salt, and high-fiber meals made with organic ingredients. One of his favorites is the Beef Patty, Sweet Potato, and Mixed Vegetables Meal–it’s a high-protein dish that is fulfilling and delicious.

Making the switch from sodium, sugar, and fat-laden fast food meals to Trifecta’s chef-curated, dietitian-designed, and nutritionally balanced meals has put Joe on the fast track to weight loss success. 

Meals that mix it up

With meals like Southern Collard Greens with Chicken & Sweet Onions, Salmon & Cauliflower Risotto with Peas, and Sweet Onion Beef with Cauliflower, Onions, and Mushrooms in every shipment, he’s got a world full of flavors to choose from every day. Each box has a variety of meals that rotate week-to-week so there’s zero chance of him getting bored (whew!).

While Joe chose the Paleo meal plan, there are plenty of other options including Clean Eating, Keto, Vegan, Vegetarian, or Whole30 plans to choose from.

Trifecta also lets you choose the size of your box, ranging from 7-14 entrées with the optional addition of breakfasts. If you want, they’ll cover every single meal for you so you NEVER have to cook!

After just 3 weeks of twice-a-workday Trifecta meals, Joe has lost 10 pounds and has tons of energy. And, as the resident food snob of the house, I can attest that Trifecta’s meals are legitimately delicious. Variety is the spice of life, and Trifecta delivers it in spades.

More than just food

We were super impressed by Trifecta’s commitment to being a whole-body solution to weight loss. Their “Resources” tab is chock-full of useful tools including workout plans, shopping lists, macro calculators, and a full library of articles on health and nutrition. Trifecta is more than just a meal-delivery service–they’re a real partner in Joe’s weight loss success story. 

They also have a best-in-class smartphone app that puts macro tracking, movement & workout logs, training videos, and analytics right at your fingertips for a completely immersive and fully supported experience. It’s very clear that Trifecta is in it for you to win it!

Satisfying & sustainable

As if that weren’t enough to love, Trifecta’s commitment to sustainability speaks volumes to my eco-warrior heart. This amazing brand actually hails from my hometown, Sacramento, CA. (Sactown FTW!)

Their Northern California sensibilities mean they bring a serious level of eco-consciousness to the meal delivery game. Trifecta’s containers are commercially compostable, the ice packs in the box are filled with nitrogen-rich plant food that you can dump in the garden, and the remaining shipping materials are all curbside recycling-friendly.

What are you waiting for?

Take it from Joe–your weight loss goals are achievable in a way that’s both sustainable, satisfying, and delicious. Crush your New Year’s health goals with Trifecta by your side–if Joe can do it, you can, too!
