What sold you on Factor?

Factor clientThe quality and taste of the food is outstanding. It is incredibly easy to use, and saves me an enormous amount of time and energy.

I am also very impressed with the meal selection and portion control.

I eat cleaner because Factor does all the work for me in terms of setting the nutritional components of each meal and preparing appropriately sized portions.


Did you have any reservations at first?

I was nervous that it wouldn’t be enough food and that it would taste bland. But after trying all of the items on the menu, I was really impressed with the quality of the food and the selections.

How has Factor affected your daily life?

It saves me a substantial amount of time since I don’t have to shop or prepare meals.

I was able to significantly increase the amount of time I can spend working out and relaxing since I don’t have to go to the store or cook. I have even dramatically reduced the amount of money I spend eating out since it is so convenient to eat at home.

And now I don’t have to worry about what to eat when training for a marathon!
