How did the idea generate?
While studying in England the struggle to prepare and eat healthy was immense and the horrors of staying alone and eating clean in a new city certainly wasn’t an easy task. The problem was hence identified and as part of the solution, FitMeals was founded by 4 individuals with the same problem – Amandeep Rayaguru, Apoorva
The main agenda revolved towards helping working professionals prevent or control lifestyle disorders by delivering requirement-tailored meals for different health needs at their doorsteps. Eight months of research has been put in to collect the recipes/create a business plan and execute it, to add credibility the founder pursued a Diploma in sports and personal Nutrition. With a bit of research, it was found that four out of 10 people in India are obese, while close to 70 per cent are overweight. 20% of children are obese, Over 26 per cent of the city’s population is diabetic while three in every four residents here suffer the risk of a heart disease. And this all can be attributed to poor lifestyles especially unhealthy eating habits.
The team then, started talking to a few doctors and reputed dieticians in the area and realized that there is a gap in demand and supply of expert-recommended meals. With the help of doctors and certified dieticians, they chalked out nutrition plans in a ready-to-consume format. The logic behind planned meal packages is using nutrition science to control and balance the nutrient intake for different health requirements.
