Improve Health & Wellbeing

Be Fit Food is designed to help you feel better through eating real-food. Weight loss is just one benefit, but other benefits of eating well include improved mental health and gut health. Here are just some of the benefits you can look forward to on the Be Fit Food program:

Weight Loss

Excessive food intake and low physical activity over a long period of time can cause your weight to increase, and this means fat mass as well. Excess body fat can impact your physical health and wellbeing and contribute to chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and some cancers.

Weight loss and improving your diet quality can improve these health markers and can also help to reduce the risk of developing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

Improved Diet Quality

Regardless of how much you are eating, if you’re consuming a diet that’s not of good quality it can still result in poor health. This is where Be Fit Food can help!

Be Fit Food meals are made from high quality, wholesome and fresh ingredients including a wide variety of seasonal vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds. Each meal contains a healthy source of protein and 4 – 12 different vegetable for added fibre and prebiotics.

We use a wide range of whole grains in our meals including quinoa, brown rice and wholemeal pasta – different to other rapid weight loss programs who provide synthetic meal replacement shakes and powders.

Mental Health and Diet Link

The body’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients plays a key role in our overall health and wellbeing. And the gut plays a big part in this with it’s trillions of bacteria which produce and store energy, as well as support our immune system.

A strong gut microbiome is a diverse one; if there is a disturbance in the balance of bacteria, the body can become more susceptible to disease. Stress, injury, illness and medication also have a role to play, and all affect the individual blend of bacteria in a person’s microbiome.

Diet can have a huge impact on our gut health in the short and long term, and gut bacteria changes depending on the types of food you consume. While everyone has a different gut bacteria profile, there are key themes for a healthy gut – a diet low in processed sugar, and high in fibre.

Be Fit Food meals are designed with gut health in mind, ensuring meals contain no added sugar and are high in fibre to promote growth of beneficial bacteria. Meals include a range of legumes, vegetables, wholegrains, yoghurt, dairy, fish, seeds and nuts which may be beneficial in increasing microbial diversity and overall health too.

You can also speak to one of our Dietitians who have a schedule of free, over-the-phone, appointments that can be booked online to help start you on your journey to feeling good again.

Before starting a new way of eating, we encourage you to seek medical advice and undertake a medical check-up, particularly if you have a medical condition and/or are taking medications. 


There are different ways that Be Fit Food can support you in your weight loss journey, so the amount of weight you will lose will depend on your goals and which program you choose.

Our most popular program is a two-week program, and people lose an average of 5.89kg over the course of the two weeks. There are also options for people who want to lose weight more steadily, and for those who want to just manage their weight too.
