Nutritiously Balanced

Why SoLo

The point is clear: Nothing is working. But maybe it’s because we’ve become too complacent with our expectations. Maybe the dieting rules are meant to be broken. Or, wait for it…Maybe it’s the rules that are broken. In a world of trendy diets, outrageous cleanses and unreasonable fasts, it’s time to get real with ourselves. Know what you’re eating, but not to the point where it’s still covered in dirt. After all, eating well doesn’t have to mean compromising our standards. And it certainly doesn’t mean starving or eating tasteless meals.

Because let’s face it, cheeseburgers are awesome. Add fries and it’s pure bliss. We’d be kidding ourselves to think we’re giving those up any time soon. If you do, amazing. Good for you; you win at life. If not, you’re human. Luckily, we’ve always got your back.

Not in the call-us-and-we’ll-help-you-move-your-furniture-on-a-Saturday-afternoon kind of way. And definitely not in the 5am-ride-to-the-airport way, but we’re here when it comes to helping you finally drop those extra pounds. We’ve got you when all those other diets fail. You see, we don’t mess around with trying to look cool. We spent the majority of freshman year doing that.

We’re here to make staying healthy a priority, without the bells and whistles. We know some days you’ll have a bar with a diet soda while sitting on the couch. Some days you’ll have a bar on the way to the gym. And some days you’ll skip the bar for a slice of pizza. The point is, we’ve at least made it easy for you to eat healthy snacks thanks to our ridiculously delicious low glycemic products.

Eat Solo. Stop The YoYo.
