A rep from F3 offered me 7 days of full meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner (in case you forgot what meals are called) as part of their 7 Day Get Fit Program. All the meals come with nutrition info so if they were a little low in calories I bulked them up with seeds or extras or something.
I was able to chat with the owner of the company and asked for a discount for RER readers in case you wanted to try it. F3 Foods Discount: BP2397 to get $50 off a 7day get fit plan OR $100 off a 28 day get fit plan! Would you say the meals were not enough to sustain you for all the physical activity you do? No, I think they are usually around 1200 – at least I would never recommend anyone go below that!

This might be in part because I ate them like my ‘usual lunch’ on a big bed of greens for ultimate volume.
Ben is not home for dinner during the week so I appreciated the simplicity of just heating something up and eating.
But, it is great if you are busy OR are bad with portion control OR eating while you cook (like me). I think it would work for someone who didn’t workout (depending on their needs) but you can tweak the numbers before you order. They are high in protein and fat so the meals are meant to keep you full despite being lower in calories.
They’re really convenient and most places will let you swap things around to get a combo that you like.

You get to choose your meal preferences out of the 20+ dishes that have been put together to optimize fat loss. I spoke with a company rep about this beforehand and discussed snacks and things to help it work for me. You can swap it around and pair up a higher calorie lunch with a lower cal dinner to make it even out better each day. When I lost my 80 pounds, I only paid attention to calories and I know now that was very wrong.
When you posted the other day about the meal you had, I was pretty surprised at how low the caloric content is given how much you run. It can happen when stomach acid refluxes, or flows up, through a valve called the lower esophageal sphincter and irritates the esophagus.
Never ignore professional medical advice in seeking treatment because of something you have read on the WebMD Site. But right now I want to give you my thoughts on the F3 Foods Meal Delivery that I was eating this week. I see in the pics you shared that they contain real ingredients which I’m impressed with. You may have a little more food freedom than you think, if you consider the pointers in this slideshow. If you were, you’d definitely have to supplement big time which might make the cost not worth it. Heartburn Trigger: Too Much FoodThe first thing to think about, in terms of curbing heartburn, isn't this or that specific food. No matter what the food is, how good it looks, or how much you like it, eating too much food at once makes heartburn more likely.
Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, CSSD, director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, says the three G's -- grab, gulp, and go -- don't make for good digestion and can make heartburn symptoms more likely. Heartburn Trigger: Fatty FoodsHigh-fat foods tend to stay in the stomach longer, and the longer they're there, the more likely discomfort can be, note Bonci and Elaine Magee, MPH, RD, author of Tell Me What to Eat If I Have Acid Reflux.
And if you're eating big servings of those high-fat foods -- like a lot of fried chicken, chips, or wings -- then you've got a double whammy of two potential heartburn triggers -- too much food and fatty fare. Little tweaks might trim enough fat to make a difference for heartburn -- and your overall health. Heartburn Trigger: Acidic FoodsAcidic foods -- which include tomatoes and products that contain tomatoes (such as tomato sauce and salsa) and citrus fruits (such as oranges, grapefruits, and lemons) -- can trigger heartburn, especially if you eat them by themselves, on an empty stomach. Vinegar is also highly acidic -- not that you're going to eat vinegar by itself, but it's a common ingredient in salad dressings and other dishes.
Heartburn Tip: Limit Acidic FoodsYou’ve got lots of other options for fresh produce besides tomatoes and citrus fruits.
If you do want to have acidic foods, limit the portion size and have something else -- that isn't acidic -- with it. For instance, have a little less tomato sauce and have it with spaghetti and a little meat or vegetables at the same time.
Those beverages include coffee (regular or decaffeinated), caffeinated tea, colas, other carbonated drinks, and excess alcoholic beverages.
Caffeinated beverages boost acid in the stomach and alcoholic beverages can relax the lower esophageal sphincter, leading to heartburn. Heartburn Tip: Try Other DrinksTo make heartburn less likely, choose drinks that aren't fizzy and don't contain caffeine.
And if you must have your coffee or other drinks that could promote heartburn, try to cut back -- maybe a smaller mug would help. If you can't bear the thought of giving up chocolate, see if cutting back helps you avoid heartburn. Peppermint is cool, not fiery, but it may relax the lower esophageal sphincter, leading to heartburn. And although garlic and onions aren't spices, they are flavorful foods that may spur heartburn.
Heartburn Tip: Hold the HeatJust because you have heartburn, you aren't necessarily headed for a lifetime of bland foods.
For instance, you might tolerate spicy foods better than someone else with heartburn, and you might find you can handle a small cup of coffee as long as you don't gulp it down by itself. You'll want to learn what you can handle and what leads to heartburn, and jotting that down can help you pinpoint what eating habits you need to change.
Heartburn Tip: Try Chewing GumMagee suggests chewing gum after a meal to stimulate saliva production, since saliva neutralizes acid and spurs the stomach to move its contents into the small intestine faster -- basically, moving it down the line before heartburn sets in.
Magee recommends picking a flavor that isn't peppermint or mint, in order to avoid relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter. Since smoking and being overweight may also make heartburn more likely, take steps toward a healthier lifestyle, if warranted.
And although occasional heartburn is common, you may want to ask your doctor about frequent heartburn, which could be a symptom of GERD.
