Unfortunately, many people don’t have the time or energy to prepare, create and stick with a healthy diet and exercise routine during their hectic workweek. Finding a weekly meal plan is ideal, but more importantly, knowing what you will be consuming throughout the day eliminates the potential of splurging on calories or forgoing breakfast. With a program such as DeliverLean, you can create a routine that will help you maintain healthy weight, as well as discipline yourself when it comes to following a routine. Besides having a meal plan, making sure that the food that you’re consuming is of the highest quality is incredibly important as well. Through the program, all meals are delivered to your doorstep fresh, unprocessed and in keeping with a low-fat, low-carb diet. In addition to improved energy and an overall improved aesthetic, you’ll notice an increase in muscle mass, a decrease in blood pressure and you’ll be able to better maintain your weight loss over a longer period of time. Incorporating a good amount of cardio-centered workouts contributes to a healthy heart, and facilitates fat burn, so keeping a good workout routine is also just
as imperative.

As President & CEO of DeliverLean, Scott Harris’ philosophy is “to eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.” DeliverLean is South Florida’s fastest-growing meal delivery company serving Miami-Dade, Broward & Palm Beach residents;
