Yes. There are 100s of food combinations you can choose from. After your initial consultation you will be provided with feedback on your recommended caloric intake based on your weight loss goals. When customizing your menu it is important to try to stick to these recommendations. If you have questions about your daily caloric intake you can call a Health Coach to help you decide what to eat.

The Good EATS menu contains a list of ingredients for each menu item. In addition to looking here before ordering, communicate your allergies with your Health Coach so that they can help you avoid these specific food items.

How many calories does each day contain?
The amount of calories in each day varies depending on your menu selections. During your initial assessment your Health Coach will help you decide the amount of calories you should be consuming to meet your weight loss goals.
Can I drink alcohol on the diet?
It is ok to drink alcohol on the Good EATS Program but you’ll have to consider the carbohydrate and calorie amounts these foods contain. Alcohol and other beverages like juice or soda add calories, raise insulin levels, and can contribute to fat storage. In short, you’ll have to consume less food if you choose to have alcohol with your meal to maintain your ideal caloric intake.
Coaching is what sets Good EATS apart from other meal planning programs. Many times meal plan members don’t know what to eat, how much to eat, how to make healthy lifestyle changes and how to stay motivated. All of these things help to contribute to a sustainable, long-term weight loss program.
How does the coaching element work?
Each Good EATS client will be linked up with a Health Coach who will evaluate their current weight loss goals, BMI and dietary needs. Members will be able to consult with these coaches on a regular basis to get feedback on food, exercise and lifestyle habits so that they can stay focused on their individual goals.
Must I exercise while on the Good EATS Program?
Nobody at Good EATS will make you exercise. However, a healthy diet combined with an exercise regimen is part of a healthy lifestyle. In addition, aerobic exercise and muscle strengthening will help you to lose more weight, improve your physique, and maintain a healthy body weight.
What happens if I don’t need coaching?
Many people utilize Good EATS simply for the amazing foods and the convenience of a meal plan. If you don’t need coaching you are not required to utilize it.
