"I launched BurgerFit with one simple idea:
To get people eating more vegetables, even if they don't like them."
I’ve always struggled with my weight and, in my twenties, I had gotten to the point where I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I had tried so many diets and nothing had ever worked. Losing weight and keeping it off is hard. At that time in my life, I had just gotten married and my husband is tall and skinny. He has never had to think about weight loss. My husband and I also owned our own company, which involved traveling all of the time, so I was constantly eating out. I had to figure something out.
I started making small changes over time so that I wouldn’t lose a bunch of weight and then gain it back.
It was more like I was running a weight loss marathon and not a weight loss sprint. Those small changes made the difference for me.
A huge component of my weight loss success was replacing meals that I usually ate with bread and carbs with vegetables. Through my cooking transition, I realized how much my family did not “like” vegetables, so I had to come up with something.
And that is how BurgerFit was born!
How we got here
