- Diet or a lifestyle?

It just so happens to be the case that what makes fat also makes you unhealthy and what makes you unhealthy also makes you fat.

So FitChef nutrition if perfect for weight loss, maintenance and just leading a healthy convenient performance lifestyle.

Producing REAL food is actually way more difficult than it seems but when it comes to your health there should be no shortcuts! 

FitChef is a way of life because you could actually live on our food, drinks and snacks 100% of the time and your body would thrive.

FitChef is obsessively committed to producing REAL food, well above the standards of others.

- Diabetes questions?

We have many diabetics buying our food and we work with the Dietitians, Doctors, CDE (Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology) and have provided cooking courses for diabetics (with great results). The perfect food for diabetics or pre-diabetics is low GI, high fibre, nutrient-dense whole food... avoiding most starch white and sweet foods.  Most of our meals (avoid meals with pasta and rice) and some smoothies will make a big difference to your blood sugar and health management.

- Will I be hungry?

Will I feel hungry on FitChef food?

Portion Size: Portion size is one of the most critical considerations when it comes to diet. In the first 3 days, your body and taste buds will adjust to whole food. FitChef food is tasty, nutrient dense and full of whole food ingredients with a lot of fibre. If you’ve lived on large portions of high-carb sugary food you may feel hungry initially, but within 3-7 days you will feel satiated all the time and your taste buds will reset. Remember that most cravings are fuelled by emotional stress that triggers your craving for sugar or refined carbs for a quick artificial fix. Don’t worry about being hungry, at any time you can simply add another smoothie or meal. When you are eating real food, you don’t have to worry about counting the calories. Real food is automatically high in nutrients and fibre and low in calories.


FitChef meals and smoothies are packed with nutritious low GI ingredients that will leave you feeling fuller for longer. Most FitChef meals are 300g in size, while a few are 250g to keep carbs low.

Real healthy food
FitChef works with Springbok rugby players, EFC fighters, professional triathletes and world class CrossFitters. We provide meals and kits to Comrades and marathon runners, cyclists, and people living normal busy lives. While more active people may eat three to five meals and two to four smoothies a day, most people agree that our meals are about the right size and they report feeling full and satisfied.

If at first, you find that you are hungrier on some days, you can always eat another half or full meal, or add avo or fresh veggies to a meal. If you are accustomed to overeating or eating in response to stress, you will experience a real difference on FitChef. We recommend giving yourself three days to adjust to the FitChef high fibre and nutrient-dense diet. You should soon feel full and nourished without the bloating, heartburn and tiredness that comes with high-GI and high-carb junk food.

Feel fuller for longer

Many people think we need piles of food and their eyes judge their needs based on plate size. This is because we have grown used to eating processed food with no fibre and very little nutritional value. When you eat nutrient-dense meals you will feel fuller for far longer.
Vegetables make you full not fat

The next thing to take into consideration is that you really can’t get fat from eating a lot of good quality vegetables. You will usually be full long before veggies will affect your weight.

Portion size is not a simple matter of whether you are a male or female or your body size. People are hungry for different reasons, like how active you are, what type of exercises you have done, stress levels, hot or cold weather, cravings and even what you ate yesterday (for example, if you ate loads of sugar and carbs you are likely to feel more hungry the next day).

Even if you eat better quality foods, you have to pay attention to portion control. If you know you’re eating too much, try reducing your portions and eat four to six small meals instead of three large meals. FitChef portion sizes are based on an average portion and you choose if you want to eat more or less.

- What can you expect on a 21-day Challenge?

What can I expect on a 21-day Challenge?

Our 21-day Best Results kit gives you everything you need to get your body back on track. With 54 meals and 42 smoothies, it’s a complete solution… your future self will thank you! You will need to clear about 3 shelves in a standard home freezer. If you don’t have much freezer space, then order a split delivery if its offered in your area. 

This BEST RESULTS kit gives you 3 meals and 2 smoothies/day for 6 days/week. One day/week is a treat or free eating day, usually a Sunday, where you can silence the cravings.

In the first 3 days your body and taste buds will adjust to whole food. FitChef food is tasty, nutrient dense and full of whole food ingredients with a lot of fibre. If you’ve lived on large portions of high-carb sugary food you may feel hungry initially, but within 3-7 days you will feel satiated all the time and your taste buds will reset. Remember that most cravings are fuelled by emotional stress that triggers your craving for sugar or refined carbs for a quick artificial fix. 

Like we always say: You learned to drink tequila, whisky and to smoke, you can certainly learn to enjoy good food. Sometimes good food takes a while to acquire the taste for natural foods, but you will be glad you put in the effort.

Worried about being hungry? Don’t be, at any time you can simply add another smoothie or meal. When you are eating real food, you don’t have to worry about counting the calories. Real food is automatically high in nutrients and fibre and low in calories.


- Counting calories a waste of time?

Why is counting calories a waste of time?

Healthy eating is not a case of calories in versus calories out! It’s not about the amount of calories you eat but rather it’s the quality of the calorie that is important.

We don’t believe in counting calories in general because 100 kcal of vegetable is not equal to a 100 kcal of sugar. Sugar will spike blood sugar and cause an insulin release which puts your body into fat storage mode; veggies on the other hand help put your body into fat burning mode.

Different food groups contain varying amounts of kcal:
1 gram fat: = 9 kcal
1 gram protein: = 4 kcal
1 gram carbohydrate: = 4 kcal
1 gram alcohol: = 7 kcal

Vegetables can have 15 times fewer calories per gram than these figures. 

Likewise, when burning calories, according to current science, it’s easy to burn 100 kcal on a treadmill but burning 16 kcal on an assault bike would leave you totally breathless and would be the hardest two minutes of your life. The current belief is that to burn off 1 Kg of fat, it’s estimated that you need to burn off an additional 7726 calories (kilocalories) (453g/1 pound of fat = 3500 kcal)

Health and weight loss is about giving your body maximum quality calories. This means eating loads of vegetables, fruit, and the ingredients found in nature’s pantry.

It’s not about how hard you exercise: it’s 90% diet and 10% exercise. Six packs are really made in the kitchen. Losing fat is all about eliminating refined carbs and controlling carbs in general. When you eat good food you feel fuller for longer , so you eat less and get more nutrients, which results in great portion control.

Calories may be useful as a rough guideline for portion size, but if you are eating a lot of veggies and unrefined food you will find it hard to eat over 1200 kcal.

How do I maintain my weight?
While we have incredible kick-start plans like our 21 Day Challenge, our focus is actually on long-term health and weight management solutions. We provide monthly maintenance meals, smoothies and snacks so you can continue your FitChef #EatClean lifestyle plan according to your budget.

Food is the foundation to all other long-term success in your life. Don’t go back to living on high-carb food because you forgot to order or plan ahead. Healthy eating is a balance of buying and making food ahead of time so that your health becomes an investment. you eat about 93 meals a month… so plan ahead! And don’t forget those 30-60 snacks or drinks between meals. You need to aim for at least 80 excellent meals that are high in nutrient-dense veggies and that don’t contain refined carbs or sugar. Remember to #EatClean. You can’t live on bread, junk cereals, pap, sugar and processed food and expect good results.

- Is FitChef Halaal?

FitChef is not certified Halaal but most of our meals are produced in a halaal facility.
We suggest our vegetarian meal option or a 21-day or 1-month Vegetarian Challenge.

- Is FitChef safe for me?

Firstly, no matter what your physical condition or situation, any health professional will tell you to cut out junk food, sugar, refined bread and carbs, and to eat more nutrient dense veggies and healthy natural foods.

We believe that you should stop or reduce food made with manmade chemicals, preservatives, and artificial flavours as it is difficult to manage the number of synthetic chemicals in each refined food item nowadays.

Food is undoubtedly the foundation to health. You will find that FitChef will tick most nutritional boxes and is safe for most people so you can make small adjustments in meals or snacks if you have specific needs.

FitChef uses natural vegetables, fruit, and spices, natural unrefined salt and grass-fed meats… basically, like what your great-grandparents would have used. And of course, we leave out added sugars, high carb flours, preservatives and artificial flavourings.
