“Absolutely loved the meal plan. Previously I’d wake up feeling bloated and still hungry. I can already feel the difference. The EatWeighBetter staff also make the process super easy from the simplicity of ordering to the simplicity of picking the food up!”
We are committed to improving client well-being. Not simply through weight loss, but also through coaching lifestyle changes aimed at improving overall health. Our team is led by Dr. Sabbagh, the board-certified nutrition specialist who created EatWeighBetter’s weight control plan.
EatWeighBetter delivers deliciously healthy, home-style food straight to your door. Each nutritiously balanced meal is designed to aid weight loss and improve general well-being by helping you make better food choices. Our menus are changed regularly to provide variety.
I’m Dr. Rana Sabbagh, the Board Certified Nutrition Specialist responsible for designing the EatWeighBetter meal planning program. The EatWeighBetter diet encourages weight loss through the adoption of a low-carb lifestyle. Its essential components are healthy meal plans, portion control and critically, the development and sustained application of new habits.”
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT
Proportionally the diet conforms to Sabbagh’s Golden Ratio for professional quality meal planning: Protein (50%), healthy fats (30%) and carbs (20%). Clients see major benefits in healthy meal plans which conform to these ratios. Even greater benefits can arise following consultation with our doctors, which are intended to lead to individualised diet regimes. These regimes are underpinned by the concept of carb-cycling, a method which varies according to individual needs.
This bespoke aspect of meal planning is just one of the ways in which our healthy meal plans distinguish themselves from a variety of diets which have come and gone over the last 5-10 years: No carb diets, mediterranean diets, liquid diets, hcg diets, high protein diets and the Atkins diet are good examples.
Our low calorie meals are designed to contain carbs with low glycemic indexes. These foods do not cause significant rises in insulin, facilitating the depletion of fat storage sites.
The idea is to:
- Maintain protein measures at 6 ounces
- Keep sides between one and one and a half cups
- Hold carb intake to one meal a day — at approximately 30 mg
- Add balanced amounts of protein and fat.
These basic meal planning rules provide those who want to lose weight with approximately 50-75 grams per day, with the suggested snacks. Since proteins and sides are pre-measured, this reinforces portion control, rendering calorie counting unnecessary. In fact, calorie count is avoided by default. In any case the dishes in our meal plans will not have too many calories because they are size-controlled and have no superfluous carbohydrates.
A word on meal planning and wheat. In recent years wheat has undergone such extensive genetic modification that I excluded it from the EatWeighBetter regime altogether because of possible links to intestinal symptoms, including fatigue, low energy and body aches.
50-75 grams of carbs a day provides most people with sufficient energy. Essentially, every planned meal is higher in protein and good fats, lower in carbohydrates. Meals with sides of carbohydrates or breakfast meals with carbohydrates are intended to be the only meal of the day with carbs. Or portions provide roughly 30 grams of carbs, leaving a 20-30 gram room for error to account for hidden-carbs added by the client.

HOW DO YOU BEGIN?
Well, you’ve considered the science. You have perhaps asked yourself the question, ‘How much should I weigh?’ You like our no fuss, simple approach to weight loss. Notice we said ‘simple’ not ‘easy’! You’ll need to supply the one thing we can’t — the desire to succeed! We’ll take care of everything else.
You’ll want to know how to order our prepared meals. If you’re anxious that you’ll be required to input the carb-protein-nutrient ratios of every mouthful, before clicking several dozen check boxes, you are going to be disappointed. There’s no need for a weight loss calculator.
Complex science. Simple application. Proven weight loss.
