The Meal Kits
What exactly is a 2fresh Meal Kit
2fresh Meal Kits contain fresh ingredients for our customers to prepare or cook one dish (ie. one recipe) themselves in their own home.
The Meal Kits contain the correct amount of ingredients needed to provide the number of calories selected by our customers at the time they placed their order.
How much food is in a Meal Kit?
Meal Kits start at 700 calories and can go up 2000 calories, in 100 calorie increments
Customers select the size Meal Kits that suits their needs.
What size Meal Kit should I order?
When choosing the size of Meal Kit you require you need to consider the following:
- How many people does the Meal Kit need to feed?
- How many meals does each person want to get from the Meal Kit?
- How many calories does each person require from each of the meals ?
Add up the calorie total and order a Meal Kit that contains that number of calories.
How to calculate the size of Meal Kit
Here are some examples:
Sam is ordering Meal Kits and wants dinner as well as a leftover serve for lunch the next day that she can warm up at work. After speaking with her trainer at F45 she has decided to have more calories on the days she attends a session at her F45 studio.
- No. of people Meal Kit is feeding = 1
- No. of meals (or serves) each person wants from Meal Kit = 2
- Calories per serve - First serve 350 calories, second serve 400 calories
- Size of Meal Kit = 750 Calories
Lisa is fed up with cooking separate meals for herself and the rest of her family when she is on the F45 Challenge.
For a change Lisa has decided to order a Meal Kit big enough for all four members of the household.
- No of people eating = 4
- No. of meals (or serves) each person wants from Meal Kit = 1
- Calories per serve - P1: 350, P2: 550, P3: 400, P4: 450
- Size of Meal Kit = 1750 Calories
Do they make meals from the Official F45 Meal Plan?
All of the dishes appear on the respective day of F45 Challenge Meal Plan for both Mainstream & Vegetarian
Where are the cooking instructions?
To find the cooking instructions, we think the best way is to use the F45 Challenge app.
- Open the app then select 'Eat', followed by 'Cook at home' where you will find the Challenge Meal Plans.
- Select your dietary preference and today's date.
- Finally, select the dish to find the cooking instructions.
Note: If the dish appears on the Challenge Meal Plan as a leftover on the day we deliver it you may need to select the day before the date of delivery to find the cooking instructions.
You can also download the cooking instructions from the Challenge app or website as a pdf.
If those options do not suit you we can also email you with a pdf version or print them and include them in your Meal Kit - please let us know if this is preferred. To save on any unnecessary printing & paper we will not include these unless you have requested them.
How much do the Meal Kits cost?
- The price of all 700 calorie Meal Kits is $27.50 and the Meal Kit price increases as the number of calories in the Meal Kit increases.
The smallest Lunch / Dinner Meal Kits are 700 calories and would be used to prepare 2x 350 calorie meal serves.
The price is $26.50 for the Approved Substitute plan and $29.50 for the published plan.
Breakfasts start at $5.95 for 1x350 calorie serve
Snacks start at $4.40 for 250 calories
The price per calorie paid drops as the meal kits size increases for each person and if additional people are eating then you will save more.
There is a $5 saving on each meal kit for an additional person ($21.50 for subs plan or $24.50 for the published plan using the 700 calorie example above).
Every morning 2fresh receives fresh produce from the market or direct from farms. The 2fresh team then packs that day's Meal Kits. We deliver those Meal Kits during the afternoon on the same day.
If you find that we have delivered produce that is not fresh please take pictures of the produce, attach them to an email and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org on the day of delivery.
Once we receive your email we will be in touch to gather any information which will help us prevent similar problems in the future. At the same time we also will arrange either:
- a full refund or
- a replacement Meal KIt free of charge (for delivery on a future date)
Plus we will give you a $15 off discount code that you can use on a future order.
What is the Approved Substitutes plan?
- The F45 Challenge Meal Plan as published contains an average of 4 recipes each week that contain Turkey, Lamb or Salmon. Whilst they are delicious these ingredients are expensive compared to alternatives that deliver just as well from a nutritional point of view.
- The Approved Substitutes plan gives customers the opportunity to reduce the cost of staying on track with the nutrition / meal plan.
- Turkey with chicken
- Lamb with pork or beef dependent on the recipe
- Salmon for a various alternative fish dependent on the recipe
- The substitute ingredients are approved by Lyn Green who creates the published F45 Challenge Meal Plan.
How do I calculate my Daily Calorie Intake
Each person has varying nutritional needs. The amount of energy you need and food you consume each day will depend on your gender, age, body weight, level of exercise and general activity. Not only will energy needs vary from person to person, but your energy levels also vary on a day-to-day basis. As such, there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
When you consume less calories than you burn, you are in a calorie deficit. In order to lose weight, you must be in a calorie deficit. As such, it’s important to understand how many calories you need on a day-to-day basis.
If you are training regularly, more often than not, you will need to add calories to your diet.
How do you know how many calories to consume (or not consume)? One way is to use a calorie calculator. F45 recommends using the Mifflin St Jeor equation to estimate calorie needs.
The equation first determines your ‘basal metabolic rate' or 'BMR' the number of calories your body needs to function at rest and to perform basic body functions.
To determine your BMR, use the following formula:
- WOMEN: Resting Metabolic Rate = (9.99 x weight) + (6.25 x height) - (4.92 X age) - 161
- MEN: Resting Metabolic Rate = (9.99 x weight) + (6.25 X height) - (4.92 X age) + 5
Equations use weight in kilograms (kg), height in centimeters (cm).
Once you determine your BMR, you will need to determine your total daily energy expenditure (or ‘total daily calorie burn’). You can do this by multiplying your BMR by your activity level, as set out below.
ADD YOUR ACTIVITY FACTORS:
- If you are sedentary (little or no exercise) = BMR x 1.2
- If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) = BMR x 1.375
- If you are moderately active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) = BMR x 1.55
- If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) = BMR x 1.725
- If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) = BMR x 1.9
The total number is your estimated daily calorie burn.
Generally, for healthy and sustainable weight loss, it is recommended that members consume 500 calories less than their total calorie burn for a day. However, keep in mind that individual needs vary.
As a general rule of thumb, adding 500 cal/day above your baseline energy requirements (those needed to maintain weight) in conjunction with including resistance training will result in muscle gain. Importantly, you should not consume less calories than your BMR. Your body needs calories to function. If you consume too few, it can lead to health complications.
