We know almost all celebrities have a nutritionist on hand around the clock to make sure every meal is perfectly planned and to help them avoid temptation when the sweet tooth strikes.
We’re not kidding. Jennifer Garner actually has her nutritionist Kelly LeVeque on speed dial and frequently calls her when late-night cravings strike.
We all know eating nutritious foods leads to overall better health, but let’s be honest: It’s really hard. Eating a balanced meal is tough when we’re constantly on the go or lured in by that office pizza party or a colleague’s birthday cupcakes. We’ll admit it, we’ve also been too exhausted to shop and cook so we opt to order takeout and let dieting fall by the wayside.
Enter Habit, a personalized nutrition plan made exactly for our own unique needs. It’s super easy to use and much more affordable than hiring a personal nutritionist. But it’s just as accessible as an expert around-the-clock can be — without the price tag only an A-lister could afford.
In just three steps, healthy eating will be simplified thanks to a team of registered dieticians creating meal plans crafted for an individual’s needs. Backed by decades of scientific research, Habit takes into account a person’s unique DNA, metabolism and activity level. It’s all available on an app, too, allowing us to take the guesswork out of eating right whether we’re darting between meetings or just relaxing at home.
Simply take a test that evaluates 70 health markers, activity and personal goals and you’ll be on the way to a healthier you with reports, meal plans and so much more.
Plus, Habit can even pair Us with our own nutrition coach available via text. This means we actually can feel just like Jennifer Garner and have a real-life nutritionist on call.
Here’s how it works: Complete two tests provided in the Habit Kit along with a Q&A to begin the evaluation process. The Habit Kit comes complete with a DNA swab test for science-based results. (PS: if you have DNA results from 23andMe or AncestryDNA, Habit won’t need to retest your DNA and you can save $100!)
There’s also The Habit Challenge Shake that serves as a metabolism test to determine how the body responds to food. Simply send everything off and a certified laboratory will make a full analysis.
From there, Habit provides personalized reports about how your body handles nutrients like carbs, fat, protein and more. The report will also teach about our heart health, predisposition for weight gain, caffeine sensitivity and lactose intolerance.
Based on our unique needs, we can find out exactly which foods we should be eating more of and which foods to avoid based on our body’s makeup. Just as its name promises, the app even analyzes our habits and can recommend better practices to keep us in line. All we need to do is log in our meals and activity, which can be imported straight from Fitbit products.
Making changes that impact overall health will be a breeze when you can understand your own eating habits and body makeup. That’s why Habit updates nutrition recommendations in real-time just like a coach on the sidelines.
The app will also include a personalized meal plan tailored to personal needs. You can also see your ideal plate so you know exactly why you should eat some foods and avoid others. For the person always too overwhelmed to pick out what to eat, this is a dream come true.
There are also tailored recipes for a quick and easy selection of meals. Whether vegetarian, gluten-free or dairy-free, Habit has a meal plan for you. All we need to do is follow the step-by-step instructions to whip up tasty, nutritious meals. The only thing missing for the star treatment is a personal chef!
Habit makes life even easier for the person who hates grocery shopping, too. App users can shop for their recipe ingredients online at Amazon Fresh in select areas.
Plus, the app will give helpful tips for ways to optimize nutrition — just like a personal dietician does. Habit even partners users with a nutrition coach with Habit Ally, a 5-week text-based program led by a dedicated expert.
After all, Habit is designed to help make lifelong changes and there are plenty of success stories to back that up.
Aside from making life easier by knowing exactly the perfect foods to eat to fuel our bodies, several users raved about how this easy-to-use app really put eating into perspective for them for the long-term. Talk about an investment!
Many said they lost weight after years of struggling to lose those pesky pounds. Several others said their energy levels skyrocketed and eating better even improved their sleep.
Sounds like a dream to Us!
