Here’s Why Joining a Monthly Seafood Program is Your Weight-Loss Secret Weapon


Understanding the Ultimate Health and Fitness Hack

Many people are often looking for easy, effective, and realistic ways to lose weight and live healthy. But even if you’re already at a healthy weight, maintaining that goal weight is a process and a commitment. The solution, however, to all your weight loss challenges and objectives might be as simple as bulking up on your sustainable seafood intake.

While it may work for some, drastic diets that tout instant results as long as you’re willing to give up carbs/sugar/processed foods/caffeine just don’t seem like a feasible way to live. It’s all about eating the right foods as often as possible. And what’s at the top of the list of the most nutrient-rich foods? Wild-caught seafood.

Everyone knows that weight loss happens with consistency, which is easily achievable when your kitchen is effortlessly armed with the right food choices. A meal plan that is packed with balanced, healthy foods such as wild-caught seafood is a key ingredient to weight loss that lasts.

Whether you are struggling to lose weight or you just want to stay on top of your health in a lasting way, a monthly seafood membership can guarantee you the highest-quality,  healthiest, and most delicious seafood on a regular basis, with zero effort on your part. Here's why:

A Seafood Membership Will Help You Make Healthy Choices

It’s easy to make healthy choices when your fridge/freezer is full of easy-to-cook, healthy options. But if all you see are processed foods, frozen pizzas or fried chicken then of course you’ll be tempted to make bad decisions. You’re only human, and we get it: fried chicken is delicious. But so is wild-caught seafood, and half the battle is keeping your fridge stocked with the right foods.

The USDA recommends that you eat at least eight ounces of seafood a week as a part of a healthy diet. But according to recent data published in The Washington Post, “for seafood in particular, consumption is estimated at about 2.7 ounces of seafood a week per person, well below the recommended eight ounces.” [1]

One of the easiest ways to increase your fresh seafood intake is to have more fresh seafood available. Seems like a no-brainer, right? And yet many of us still don’t prioritize access to the right fish on a regular basis.

Opt to fill up your fridge and pantry with fresh ingredients — think fresh produce, whole grains and lots of lean protein, such as wild-caught salmon, cod or halibut. If you frequently have sustainable seafood ready to go, you’ll be that much more prepared each month to lead a healthy, balanced diet that is as rich in flavor as it is in nutritional benefits.

It Keeps Things Interesting

If your diet is bland and monotonous your chances of sticking to it are slim to none. By signing up for a monthly seafood program, you won’t get stuck in the rut of making the same old chicken dish every night. This is because a monthly seafood program can also expose you to different species of fish that you’re not used to eating; or maybe you’ve been too nervous to buy or prepare certain types of fish and you need a little push to help you try something new.

However you look at it, a monthly seafood subscription will open up tons of new possibilities to help you eat different, delicious, clean protein more frequently, and to achieve that goal in the most exciting, tasty and dynamic way. No more eye rolls when you announce you’re making turkey sandwiches (again) and no more stressing at the supermarket about which type of fish to buy. Every month your package of wild-caught seafood will arrive, and all you need to do is enjoy it.

It Promotes Consistency With Your Diet

Eating one nutritious meal alone is not going to do much to improve your body or your health. But eating consistent, balanced, healthy meals daily can make a serious impact on your weight-loss goals. In fact, a 2017 study from Drexel University found that of the 183 overweight or obese adults who participated in the research, those who “slowly lost weight by eating and exercising consistently had greater weight-loss success by the end of the experiment.” [2]

Bottom line: consistency is key. If you eat healthy, balanced, protein-rich and nutrient-dense foods every day, you will lose weight in a significant and lasting way.

Getting a box of wild-caught fish sent to your home every month will poise you to succeed because it not only ensures that you’re making the right food choices, but also that you are making them consistently enough for the results to start showing. Regular shipments of healthy seafood will take the guesswork out of coming up with consistent, nutritious options for your meals. And because you can feel confident that the seafood you are consuming is wild-caught and top quality, you can focus more on sticking to your health plan, and less about what fish you should be buying.
