How do I heat the food?
All Hexey meals come with their heating instructions. Don’t worry – they’re really simple.
Where should I keep my meals?
If you want to keep your meals to eat at a later time, then the freezer is the best option. Keeping our fresh meals in the fridge will ensure they stay fresh for another day.
Should I add any other seasonings or condiments to my food?
No. Our meals have been designed to be healthy while tasting delicious. Anything you add will destroy the taste and the healthy balance of the meals.
Can I freeze my meals and eat them on the weekend?
Definitely. In fact, even though we cater for five days, we encourage our clients to order food for their weekend meals as well. No reason to stop eating clean just because it’s the weekend right?
How long can I keep my meals for?
The problem with food that is cooked and delivered fresh is that that it is completely preservative and artificial ingredient free. The drawback there is that it doesn’t last forever. While you can freeze the food for as long as you want, our meals will only last till the next day; with the exception of fish meals that must be consumed on the day.

Our meals are scientifically designed to be the right amount for most people. Hexey portion sizes are calculated using the most common normal range and the standard lean body mass for men and women. What that means is that there is no way you’ll be starving after a Hexey meal. But there will be exceptions. One of our clients is a 6’5” athlete – not someone who falls with the standard range – and we happily made the adjustments. He was the first person to try the customised Hexey Max meal plan. So, if you’re still hungry – or for that matter, if you feel the portions are too large – talk to us and we’ll be happy to adjust your order accordingly.
What can I do to get the best results from Hexey?

What can I drink?
We’re not here to preach but if you’re looking to lose weight then limiting your intake of alcohol is probably a good idea. Staying away from sugary beverages and energy drinks also goes a long way in improving your health and helping you lose weight. And always make sure to consume 3-4 litres of water every day. Make it a habit to drink at least half a glass of water after every meal.

Healthy living isn’t a goal – it’s a lifestyle. And eating healthy is not something you should stop doing if you have reached your optimum weight goals. Hexey meals will ensure that you continue to maintain your ideal weight and good health.
How many calories are in each meal?
Individual calorie counts of Hexey meals vary according to the weekly menu and the portion sizes. Female portions are designed to be no more than 350 calories and male portions are no more than 450 calories. If you follow a Hexey diet, your calorie intake will be 1200-1400 for women and 1800-2000 for men. More than the calories though, it’s important to remember that the standout feature of Hexey diets is the macronutrient balance. Unlike other diets, Hexey diets are designed to facilitate fat loss and muscle gain through it unique protein-carbohydrate-fat balance.
What is the macronutrient content of each meal?
Since the Hexey diet is designed for lean muscle gain and fat loss, we offer a unique macronutrient balance. Our daily menus are designed to provide you with 50% protein, 30% carbohydrates and 20% fats. Don’t worry – All fats are the unsaturated, heart-healthy kind and include nuts, seeds and avocados. The macronutrient balance differs according to meals. At lunch, we serve 30-40 grams of carbohydrates, which is lowered to 10-15 grams at dinner. Similarly, at 30-40 grams, dinner protein quantities are higher than lunch. Overall, we maintain the unique 50-30-20 balance that helps you burn fat and build lean muscle faster.

What is the science behind eating five meals a day?
It’s simple really – A person is awake on average between 16-17 hours a day. By consuming five meals, you will be eating every three hours (assuming one hour fasting before bedtime). Eating five meals every three hours ensures that your body has enough energy for the day. You stay alert and won’t feel sluggish – especially in the afternoon and most important of all, because you stay full; you won’t snack, which is important for healthy weight loss and weight maintenance goals.
Why should I avoid eating too many carbohydrates at night?
Actually, we don’t believe you should be eating too many carbohydrates at any time of the day. The traditional notion of the food pyramid – with 60% carbohydrates – has been proven to be unsound and ineffective. Since most people lead sedentary lifestyle where they’re sitting at a desk for six hours a day, consuming a high carbohydrate diet, as recommended by most “experts” leads to fat gain, low energy, fatigue and overall poor health. At Hexey, we’ve, literally, turned the food pyramid around. Our meals are designed to help you stay fit, alert and burn fat faster while gaining lean muscle. We prescribe a diet with 50% protein, 30% carbohydrate and 20% heart healthy fats to help you reach your goals faster.
