Spring Diet

Dear GotMeals Fan,

I don’t know about you, but every year around this time I get this little feeling of dread tapping at my shoulder.

And then a mild, spring like day comes around and I remember: we have to get out of our winter coats and sweaters and into bathing suits and shorts soon.

Although I have made peace with my body through what I choose to nourish myself with and being very mindful about it, there was a time that I didn’t feel that way at all.

I would have to say for half of my life actually. That’s a long time to feel down on yourself.

Starting when I was a teenager, I got stuck in the cycle of the never ending holiday that turned into the inevitable 5 pounds gained. The “I’ll deal with that later, for now, I eat!” mode.

Inevitably, the holiday season would end, and there I was, dazed and confused. Isn’t that what we were supposed to do over the holidays? Eat everything in sight – cookies, chocolate, huge dinners – and worry about it all later?

Maybe for some people. For me, I had extra weight to now deal with.

And the dieting would begin. The Scarsdale Diet, the “two shakes and a sensible dinner” diet. I don’t even remember the name of that one, I just remember it being horrible.

They were all unsustainable, because who eats like that anyway?

Really, when I think about it, going on these diets was all about punishment. I had to right the wrong I had done.

Isn’t this what I was supposed to do? I didn’t know any better.

Looking back I know I was motivated by external factors (if I lose this weight then I can finally be happy) rather than what I know now.

To get healthier, to lose weight, to feel more energized, I had to tap into the real “why” behind it all.

I wanted to stop beating myself up every year, I wanted to be as healthy as I could be for my three children.

I wanted off that punishing roller coaster.


I know that nutrition eliminates prescription drugs. I know that taking care of yourself means optimal nutrition. I know that if I didn't do something to help the food crisis and make it better- I would never have never healed from migraines headaches from a high acid in my diet. Think about it everyone is subject to the whims of processed food. Processed food was invented during wartime for our military. Easily transportable canned food with radioactive aluminum not to mention dead food was invented for basically survival. It is dead food because it needed to feed the military on long trips and had to be shelf stable so nothing would grow in the can like bacteria. The 70's delivered T.V. dinners loaded with salt and little nutrition. It is no wonder American's are getting sick. The drug companies and big food manufactures have to get behind the Millenniums because the old way of delivering food has to go. Hi, My name is Maria, the inventor of GotMeals. This has been as hard to develop as raising a child. I began with combining PH balanced food and looked and waited for the technology that would not kill the nutrients. After much of the research took five long hard years to develop GotMeals could not be possible without High Pressure Processing or HPP. What it does is as it is applied to each pouch of GotMeals it literally gives it the benz- that's right just like a scuba diver that comes up to fast in the water. The pressure is applied to your food to keep it fresher, tastier, brighter, longer lasting preservative free so the nutrients are optimized. Since pressure cooking also contributes to protecting vitamins and minerals all of the ingredients are gently pressure cooked in small batches. The food is never overcooked giving you a crunch with every bite means it's healthy. The pouch is BPA free so if you want to eat GotMeals in the pouch. Let us here at GotMeals know your favorite creation. We love to hear from you. I hope you enjoy the Real Fresh, Real Good Food. Thank you for caring as much as I do, Maria LoRicco
