FAQ

SERVICES
What is TheGoodBox?

TheGoodBox delivers healthy, balanced, and nutritious meals made from naturally-grown and fed produce.

We deliver 5 meals a day, 5 days a week, to your home or place of work.

What are the delivery schedules?

We have two (2) delivery schedules for your convenience:

AM delivery: 6am-10am (Mondays – Fridays)

PM delivery: 5pm-9pm (Sundays – Thursdays)

You may choose the delivery schedule that best suit your needs. You may also specify the exact time (time specified should be within the delivery time schedules) that is most convenient for you. However, we cannot promise that it will always be delivered at that exact time; we can only do our best to keep within your specified time.

How do we pay for our weekly meals?

Payment can be settled via bank-to-bank transfer. We will email our bank account information once you have accomplished our order form and right after we have confirmed your order.

We are also accepting Cash upon Delivery.  We would greatly appreciate it if you could prepare the exact amount to be collected by our rider on your first delivery schedule.

THEGOODBOX MEALS
What goes into each GoodBox meal?

Every ingredient that goes into each meal is meticulously planned and prepared by our chefs and staff to give maximum nutritional value, to use only the freshest, most natural ingredients, and to entice the senses with taste, smell and color.

How do you prepare TheGoodBox meals?

We make sure that the kitchen and its environs are meticulously clean and tidy. Our staff is required to wear hairnets and gloves and to change into standard uniforms and clogs to minimize contamination from the outside.

We use only purified water for all our cooking needs. We also use Extra Virgin Olive Oil, canola oil (only if necessary), and sometimes High-grade Coconut Oil.

CALORIE-COUNTED MEALS
Why do I need to count my calories?

While physical activity is a vital part of weight control, so is controlling the number of calories you eat. If you consume more calories than you use through normal daily activities and physical activity, you will still gain weight.

How do I lose weight safely?

While there is no single rule, most obese people are told they have to reduce the energy intake from their diet by 600 calories a day.

The best way to achieve this is to swap unhealthy and high energy food choices such as fast food, processed food and sugary drinks (including alcohol) for healthier choices.

A healthy diet should consist of :

  • plenty of fruit and vegetables
  • plenty of potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy foods (ideally you should choose wholegrain varieties)
  • some milk and dairy foods
  • some meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein
  • just small amounts of food and drinks that are high in fat and sugar

Also avoid food that contains high levels of salt as this can raise your blood pressure, which can be dangerous in already obese people.

Very low calorie diet

A very low calorie diet (VLCD) is where you consume less than 1,000 calories a day. An example of a VLCD would be:

  • a bowl of cornflakes for breakfast
  • a single jaffa cake as a mid-morning snack
  • a chicken salad sandwich for lunch
  • a low calorie lasagne for an evening meal
  • a pear for an after-dinner treat

This plan also assumes that you will be drinking water or diet drinks throughout the day, as most other popular drinks such as tea and coffee contain calories.

Remember, excessive amounts of fizzy diet drinks can damage your teeth – they may not contain sugar, but they do contain high levels of certain acids.

While a VLCD can be an effective method of losing weight for some obese people, it is not a suitable or safe method for everyone. It would usually only be recommended if rapid weight loss was required to reduce the risk of an obesity-related complication, such as heart disease, or if you have failed to lose weight despite conventional treatment.

You should only ever undertake a VLCD under the supervision of a suitably qualified healthcare professional.

Why should I try TheGoodBox?

The problem is not the availability of outside help. The problem is that our motivation to commit to these programs is weak because it is contrary to our natural point of view. If we were able to go to the gym regularly, we would be able to rein in our expanding waistlines. However, these programs take time, money and — perhaps most daunting of all — effort.

Our brains do not accurately compute the risks to our health because the health consequences of our decisions are years away, whereas that burger is right there in front of us. And, we can always start our diet tomorrow; or maybe the day after.

We need help in making healthy food choices. Healthy eating campaigns are underfunded and lack the charisma to influence behavior. Taxes on unhealthy foods are a powerful disincentive, but such efforts  are few and far between. Propose a junk food tax and opponents will decry a “nanny state,” arguing it violates freedom of choice.

TheGoodBox can be a great alternative for those who would like to (but do not have the luxury of time) maintain a healthy, nutritious and delicious diet. It’s the GoodHealth, GoodValueforMoney alternative!
