How will this program be different than our other “weight loss” programs?
1. The Edge is designed to aid in your weight loss with a structured menu that incorporates low glycemic (carb)/ high protein calorie controlled meals.
2. It is designed to jump start the metabolism by providing high-quality all natural, lean proteins and vegetables in place of carbohydrates in the form of grains, fruits, sugars, and starchy vegetables.
You will receive “The Edge” menu for the first half of your program. This induction menu alters the typical meal plan by significantly reducing the amount of carbohydrates in each meal, and replacing it with lean proteins, heart-healthy fats, and fibrous vegetables.
Protein is important because it encourages a stronger metabolic rate -higher than carbohydrates- and supports the structure of muscles.
Additionally, reducing carbohydrates limits the fluctuations in blood sugar levels, keeping them more consistent.
2nd HALF (Menu B)
Once clients finish their induction phase, they will return to a nutritionally balanced meal plan which will include healthy sources of carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.
This will continue the client’s weight loss by keeping calories within range, and also help them to maintain the weight they lost during induction.
All EDGE meals are FRESH and are packaged and sealed in special containers, then placed in a shipping box with insulated material to keep it at the utmost quality and meet the highest standards of safety and quality. Everything is then shipped via FedEx 1and 2 Day Ground and Express, depending on where you live.
Your Freshology representative will gladly send you a sample menu upon your request. Your menus will be e-mailed to you prior to the arrival of each shipment. These menus are color-coded with the meals themselves and include the nutritional information for each of the meals.
How are meals delivered fresh when they are shipped from California?
The meals are fresh thanks to a great technology called MAP technology. This technology slows down the oxidization process and allows the food to stay fresher longer. The meals all have "use-by" dates to ensure that you are consuming them while they are at their freshest.
During your 1 or 2 week Edge program (Menu A), we recommend that you stick to the program in its entirety to ensure best results. Remember, The Edge is based on a carefully structured meal plan which works by burning through fat stores when carbohydrates are not present. By pausing or eating off of the plan, your body will revert to using carbohydrates as the primary energy source, and weight loss will not be as rapid.
Will I gain back the weight once the program is complete?
At Freshology, what you feed your body is a way of life. Eating healthy leads to a happy and healthy emotional and physical well-being. Once you try The Edge Program, you will have the knowledge to eat properly, understand portions and maintain your weight loss with the right commitment.

How do I heat the food?
With our Go Green containers, you can heat your meals in the microwave oven. We recommend that you remove the food and place it on a plate before microwaving it. We recommend heating your breakfast (after removing any fruit or sauce containers) for 1-2 minutes, lunch (after removing any sauce containers) for 1-2 minutes and dinner (after removing any sauce containers) for 2-3 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. If you don't have the time or convenience to do so, then you can remove the seal from the microwavable container and heat for 2-3 minutes.
What if I am allergic to or dislike a particular food?
If you have a shellfish allergy, or dislike certain proteins (poultry, red meat, seafood), your Freshology consultant will design and personalize your program to your preferences. Please be sure to take the opportunity to let us know what your needs are, so that we may design a program that works best for your nutritional needs.
What should I drink?
Water, water, water! You should drink at least eight glasses of water a day even if you are not on a Freshology program. Be sure to drink one eight ounce glass of water before each meal. Try to limit coffee to one cup if possible. Caffeine and artificial sweeteners can have a negative effect on your insulin levels; therefore, it is best to keep them at a minimum.
Can I order the program for only weekdays?
Absolutely! Our 5-day meal delivery plan options offer the perfect balance and flexibility for those who eat out or travel as part of their lifestyle.
Do you offer the option to continually receive the meals without having to call or place an online order?
Yes, but you must select that as an order option when you place your order. Please inform the customer service representative on the phone when you place your order or make that selection when you place your online order. You have the option for this automated service, which will be renewed and billed to your credit card 3-5 business days prior to the beginning of your program.
