It’s no secret that losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be difficult to do by yourself. Having a partner or a support group to encourage you along the way or workout with you is much easier than being left on your own! Positive support will help you to stay on track and keep your faith up even on the most frustrating of days.

Having a friend to exercise with is great, but you can also find support in other ways, such as with prepackaged eating and online health programs. Systems like these are designed for people who want to make the change to live a healthier lifestyle but still need a bit of outside guidance. Below are some great systems that can help you make the change to a fitter, happier you.

Bulu Box is a health, nutrition, and weight loss system that comes packaged in monthly boxes, hence the company name. Bulu Box is designed to provide individuals with small samples of top brands of fitness videos, vitamins and supplements, and snacks. There is also an online community where individuals can share their thoughts about products, get support and tips from experts, and order more of their favorite Bulu Box pieces. The offered boxes come in three, six, or 12-month packages, and cost only about $10 per month! To get your first Bulu Box for free, use promotional code box2747 on the site. In addition, you will also receive 50% off a three, six, or 12-month Bulu Box subscription!

In terms of food, Factor 75 is a great new option for those looking for a smarter and simpler way to eat healthily. The Chicago meal delivery service offers meals that are tailored to your health needs and believes in what it calls “performance eating,” or eating to help your body perform as well as possible. Factor 75 aims to provide meals that offer "a perfect balance of nutrition and taste to enhance mind and body performance." By simply creating an online profile, you can choose which meals you want brought to your home – no preparation or cooking required. I also have a hard time planning healthy meals ahead of time, so I greatly support Factor 75. For an introductory offer, please use the promotional code “andrea” on www.Factor75.com.

For serious weight loss, Retrofit is a program that focuses on slow, steady, and sustainable weight loss that lasts. Individuals can choose between the 10% weight loss program or the more vigorous 15% weight loss program depending on what they feel best suits them. Retrofit helps clients lose an average of one-half to one pound per week, and much of that success can be attributed to the professionals who counsel clients their entire way through. If you're looking to try Retrofit, you can use the link http://www.retrofitme.com/save/andrea-metcalf to save $500 off their year-long plan. I believe in the Retrofit solution for weight loss and I am currently working with Retrofit as an affiliate partnership.

Another online fitness program is FitStudio. FitStudio is a free online fitness community created by Sears that includes a library of workout videos you can do at home, health tips and exercise regimens, and articles from health experts (including me!). FitStudio aims to create an encouraging online environment for individuals so they stay motivated to follow their fitness plan. Check out my “Drop 5 in 30 Days” program to help you keep slim this summer. You can learn more by visiting www.fitstudio.com/drop5.
