People think I jog because I’m an athlete.
I’m not an athlete. In the eighth grade I played a combined total of 62 seconds for the entire season of basketball at JFK junior high. I was the skinny kid every one cheered for in the last seconds of the game in the hope that there’d be an improbable basket scored.
I don’t jog because I’m athlete.
I jog because it makes my pants fit. And so does eMeals.
That probably wouldn’t make a very good slogan, “eMeals, it makes your pants fit,” but it’s true.
When I was in my 20s I could just think about exercising and I would lose weight. I had a metabolism that did push ups and jumping jacks while I slept at night. And then I hit my 30s.
Now I need to be smarter about what I eat. At one point I wasn’t and my wife said, “We can’t keep buying you new pants.” She was right. We didn’t need a line item for “bigger pants” in our budget. I needed to make healthier food decisions, which eMeals makes incredibly easy.
They have a whole section of meal plans that are diet specific. From Gluten Free to Vegetarian to Portion Control, they’ve got me covered. (No word yet if they’ll take my suggestion of a section called “Nashville Skinny Jeans,” but a guy can dream.)
The meals are delicious, the plans are super cost effective and at the end of the day, my pants fit.
That’s why I love eMeals.
