Eating healthy isn’t inherently easy. It takes time, a commitment, an investment and in some cases, it does not even always taste that good. Especially when you compare it to the vast amount of cheap, grab-and-go convenience “foods” we are up against every minute of every day.
Building a company on the front lines of the healthy food movement isn’t all that easy either. Our Veggie Ninjas have been cranking away in our kitchen for 85 weeks, shopping, washing, chopping, cooking, plating, packing and delivering our Sexy Veggies all over San Diego.
As we begin planning for our 100th week celebration in January, we realized it was time for a little CCK Client love!
As hard as we work for you, we simply couldn’t do it without you! We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to what you eat Monday – Friday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We know you put a lot of trust in us and we want to take this week to say thank you!!

Did you cringe just a little when you read the word “dieting?” That’s ok, that’s a natural reaction because dieting is traditionally a terrible process to go through and nothing we suggest you subject yourself to. This article will show you how you can easily lose weight, improve health and enjoy delicious food with San Diego healthy meal delivery from the Clean & Colorful Kitchen.
It’s no secrete that most of us can stand to lose a few pounds and setting out on a journey to do so is likely a good idea. Carrying excess weight around is a risk factor for many degenerative diseases like diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain types of cancer. Not to mention, extra weight physically weighs us down causing joint pain, making average daily living more difficult. But with a 96% failure rate, we’re left to wonder if we’re better off doing nothing at all?
The secret is that setting out to lose weight isn’t a bad idea, it’s the traditional dieting approach that is continuing to leave us frustrated, confused and with a lack of will to try anything “healthy” ever again.
While a “diet” is simply a word to describe the type of food you eat, “dieting” implies restriction of calories or certain food in an effort to lose weight. And if we know one thing to be true about dieting in the traditional sense, it simply does not work. Exactly why most diets fail is different from person to person and from story to story, most stem from one of these three root causes of failure.
While we are all human with the same basic anatomy, we are all extremely different beings with varying nutritional needs and lifestyle habits. Just because your office mate is happily shedding pounds by chowing down bacon on her new “keto” diet, does not mean you should dive down that diet hole. Just because your best friend lost all her weight on a juice cleanse, does not mean you should ditch food all-together. Not only because your body may respond differently, but because your lifestyle may not support those patterns. It’s important to consider the foods that fuel you the best and what is realistic for your lifestyle.
Dieting in the traditional sense generally involves restricting calories or certain food groups. The more restrictive you can be, the more weight loss you will see. This is a dangerous and unsustainable pattern. It’s terribly unsatisfying to focus on what you can’t eat and using weight loss as a measurement of success is a risky habit. Weight loss isn’t as predictable as one might hope and results can be inconsistent and frustrating. When you’re measuring your success by pounds lost, it can be easy to get frustrated, lose motivation and completely give up. In short focusing on restriction and the scale is a losing strategy.
Diets do work, for as long as you can follow them. The problem is, most don’t involve an abundance of your favorite foods that you can easily eat on a daily basis. Before you commit to any change in your daily diet, it’s important to consider: What do you enjoy eating, what can you not live without (forever), what food makes you feel the best? If the diet you are looking at includes restrictions of the foods you truly enjoy, it likely will not work in the long term. Worse, it can lead to a pattern of unsatisfying and unhealthy yo-yo dieting which can wreck havoc on your metabolism.
It’s not all doom and gloom in the world of weight loss! We’re here to help you discover a plan that works for you, full of delicious flavor that will satisfy you for the long term.
