With the holiday season rapidly approaching, many Manhattanites are looking for ways to keep the pounds down by looking into new and great ways to stay in shape.  Zone Manhattan, a healthy meal delivery service declared the best diet-to-your-doorstep by The New York Times, could definitely be your answer to those holiday pound woes this season and going right into 2017!

Here is how Zone Manhattan works, essentially.  They offer ready-made chef prepared meals delivered fresh to each customer’s door every morning following a 40/30/30 ratio of 40% calories from Carbohydrates, 30% calories from Protein and 30% from Favorable Fats – balancing the correct amount of amino acids with carbs to help prevent over eating.

Every meal is crafted specifically for each individual customer – whether gluten-free, paleo, vegan or vegetarian –and is modeled after the same nutritional plan that Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston subscribe to.

Zone Manhattan delivers three meals and two snacks directly to customers as early as 5 a.m., 365 days a year. Meals are made daily by highly trained chefs in the company’s test kitchen using the locally sourced ingredients purchased that morning at the Hunts Point Terminal Produce Market and Fulton Fish Market, located down the street from Zone Manhattan’s corporate headquarters in the Bronx. Unlike other food delivery services or meal kits that require prepping and cooking in the kitchen, Zone Manhattan meals are ready to eat in 90 seconds or less.

“We take great pride in finding the freshest ingredients available at the markets and creating restaurant-quality meals and snacks that are flavorful and nutritionally balanced,” said Steve Lindner, Zone Manhattan’s Founder and CEO. “Zone Manhattan sets the table for a convenient way for our customers to make a healthy lifestyle change for the better.”

Zone Manhattan does an amazing job at providing top quality dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even for snacks that you will always feel full and never hungry.  I was lucky enough to try out their service last week, and was very pleased with the results.  They provided me with some wonderful meatloaf for lunch, fish for dinner, and a delicious cheesecake to enjoy after one of the meals.  The great thing is that I never felt stuffed and I felt what I was eating had a great healthy element to it but was still packed with a ton of flavor and bite to it.
