Eating healthfully has never been easier.

The team at Fit Foods 4 Life has taken all the work out of planning and preparing healthy meals, including a free consultation with their nutritionist to help you design a custom dining plan for weight loss or fitness.

They have a large selection of prepackaged prepared foods (always fresh, never frozen) for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Although each item is labeled with its calorie count, their interest is in healthy eating, not counting calories.

With two convenient locations in Newport Beach, it's easy for busy people to stop in and pick up their meals. At lunchtime, you can have food delivered to your office within a 5-mile radius if you have an order for $100 or more.

Co-founder and Chief Executive Robert Conrad comes from a medical background and has spent his professional life developing new ways to help people lead a healthy, happy lifestyle. He found that lots of business traveling resulted in his gaining weight, which made him aware of a gap in the marketplace for quick, healthy food options that actually taste good.


Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer John Allen started as a personal trainer but realized that his clients needed more than a workout plan to reach their goals. They needed access to healthy food that was easy to prepare and delicious to eat because otherwise they wouldn't stick to the plan. He has a degree in exercise physiology and a master's in business administration, which made him an ideal partner for Robert in Fit Foods 4 Life.

The next step was finding a corporate chef to design the menu. Nick Samons came on board with 17 years in the food industry and 15 years as an executive chef in Savannah, Ga. He knows just how to eliminate fat and calories to produce dishes that are still delicious. In fact, both he and his wife lost 30 to 40 pounds each, eating Fit Foods 4 Life.

Two nutritionists are also on the staff. April is a dietitian specializing in weight loss and disease prevention. Emily is a nutritionist who specifically works in the weight-loss field. Both provide free individual counseling sessions by appointment, and if you partake of this service you will get a 10% discount on your food purchases.

The Fit 4 Life concept is not just for weight loss or health. This is convenient fast food that you can trust, and what's more, it tastes good.
