Chef Mario's Personal Chef Service
Best personal chef service ever! I found Chef Mario ( after an accident that left one family member with a severe head injury, and leaving me as a caretaker. I was out of my mind with worry and stress, and someone suggested I look into a personal chef to ease my daily chores. After quite a bit of online research, I chose Chef Mario to deliver meals for what I thought would be one week. I was so impressed with the quality of the food that I extended the service another week...then another...then another. Having a healthy dinner prepared for my family made all the difference to helping us recover from the devastating accident.So, enough about me, how about the food. First, everything is delicious--gourmet quality. I'm typically a picky eater, but I have loved every single meal that has been delivered--that's 15 different entrees so far. Plus, it seems that a lot of attention is paid to the nutritional value of the entrees and the portions are generous.Chef Mario's service is perfect. They were able to accommodate my order as a last-minute addition when I explained my dire situation, and they make sure to ask about food allergies. They deliver when promised, and everyone I've talked to has been kind, helpful, and enthusiastic.Truly, I cannot thank Chef Mario enough for the wonderful food and service at this difficult time. This is an exceptional personal chef.
Tips & Advices
A meal replacement is a substitute for a meal, typically a drink or a bar. While processed meal replacements have a set number of calories, many are high in added sugar and low in protein, fiber and healthy fats.
Appetite suppressants, like all drugs, have side effects, so read the fine print and discuss potential side effects with a medical professional before taking them. Stimulant-type drugs can cause insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, drug dependence and abuse, and withdrawal symptoms. Drugs that work to prevent fat absorption can cause gas, soft stools, and oily spotting. Diet pills that affect neurotransmitters are associated with headache, nausea and vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, and dizziness.
People generally lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) if they stick to a calorie-controlled plan. Increasing exercise can increase weight loss.
Medical weight loss is supervised by a medical professional and targets the causes of obesity and weight gain. Treatments can run the gamut, from diet and nutrition to pills and surgery, but the goal is to help the patient achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life.
Many people can see results in one to two weeks if they stick to their plan. Weight loss results vary from person to person and depend on factors such as starting size and caloric intake level. Including exercise in the program can accelerate weight loss.
