8 Ways South Beach Can Keep You Healthy While Social DistancingArticle posted in: Diet & Nutrition Lifestyle South Beach Diet
Things are weird. You’re working from home. You’re shopping from home. You’re eating at home. You’ve probably never spent so much time at home. Now—because you actually have that time you’ve been waiting for—you’ve got an uninterrupted opportunity to focus on your health. Consider starting a meal delivery service like the South Beach Diet to help you minimize trips to the grocery store while social distancing. With our easy-to-follow, low-carb meal plans, you can stay healthy and reach your weight loss goals while you’re safe at home.
Here are eight ways the South Beach Diet can help you stay healthy while social distancing:
1. We deliver healthy food to your door.
Avoid extra trips to the store by getting the majority of your meals and snacks delivered to your home. While you’ll still have to venture out to the supermarket or order some groceries online, you won’t have much to buy if you sign up for the South Beach Diet meal delivery service. We’re here to keep you on track with fully prepared, nutritious foods. Plus, many of our menu items are shelf-stable and won’t take up valuable room in your refrigerator. Stay safe at home and let us do the cooking.
2. You’ll follow a nutritious meal plan.
Our program is a nutritious diet filled with proteins, healthy fats and vitamin-rich vegetables. We recommend adding at least three servings of non-starchy vegetables per day on our meal plans. Low sugar, antioxidant-rich fruits like berries can also be enjoyed in moderation if they fit into your daily net carbs. According to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a diet rich in vegetables and fruit can support a healthy immune system and decrease the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and eye and digestive problems.

3. We help you stay hydrated.
Our nutritious meal plan and fluid recommendations can also help to keep you healthy and hydrated as you lose weight. We recommend drinking half of your body weight in ounces of fluid each day. This can include water, unsweetened herbal or green tea and black coffee. You can also sip on lemon water and refreshingly fizzy seltzer. We have many tips to keep you hydrated and help you drink more water right here on The Palm Weight Loss Blog.
Eating plenty of healthy fats and dark leafy greens on our low-carb diet plan will also provide you with electrolytes. According to Healthline, electrolytes are essential minerals in the body that have an electric charge. They are used in many bodily functions, such as the nervous system, muscle contraction, hydration and pH balance.Click the link below to learn more about the importance of electrolytes:

5. You’ll learn how to cook.
It’s the perfect time to practice your cooking skills. Each week on your South Beach Diet meal plan, you will incorporate DIY meals and snacks. These are healthy, low-carb meals that you will prepare on your own by following the guidelines we provide you. Don’t worry! We give you an abundance of tools and guidance along the way. Practice your home cooking skills while social distancing and dive into our extensive recipe section here on The Palm.
6. You’ll stay fit and active.
Even if you’re required to work from home, the mornings aren’t coming as early and lunches aren’t as strict. Plus, with Daylight Savings back in effect, the sun lasts a little longer. In short, there has never been a more fitting time to begin an exercise routine. On the South Beach Diet weight loss program, we recommend exercising at least 30 minutes per day. Start out by walking regularly. In a 12-week study published by the Journal of Exercise Nutrition and Biochemistry, obese women had “significant reductions” in body fat after walking for 50 to 70 minutes a day, three times a week. According to Mayo Clinic, the longer and faster that you walk correlates directly to the number of calories that you burn. Have fun and gradually increase your speed and intensity as you get more comfortable and experienced. We also have plenty of easy home workouts in our Fitness section on The Palm.
7. We offer a FREE tracking app.
Daily food journal. Water log. Fitness tracker. Weight loss chart. Macro tracker. One-stop access to all of these resources plus recipes, access to The Palm and step-by-step guidance about your low-carb meal plan. The South Beach Diet Tracker App is the perfect weight loss sidekick for your low carb diet. In addition to keeping you organized, staying accountable with your food intake can help you lose weight. By consistently recording what you eat, you can double your chances at weight loss success, according to a 2008 study, published in Science Daily Journal. The process of reflecting on what you eat seems to promote self-awareness and weight loss success, whether you track on paper, in a planner or with a weight loss app.
8. We give you an edge up.
The Keto-Friendly Shakes that are included with the Platinum South Beach Diet plan can give you an edge up on your weight loss goals while you’re social distancing. They’re packed with protein, fiber and probiotics to keep you satisfied and support digestive health. They contain MCT oil, which can help accelerate weight loss and make the most of all the hard work you’re putting in. MCT oil is a distillation made from medium-chain triglycerides naturally found in coconut oil, palm kernel oil or dairy products like milk and butter. MCTs are instant energy for your body and brain and aren’t metabolized like long-chain triglycerides. That energy can lead to a better workout, more weight lost, a feeling of fullness and a happy, healthy gut. Learn more about the benefits of MCT oil. >
