Ourlife Health

Lose weight following the same diet plan as Ruby Gettinger.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Ruby Gettinger won our hearts as she bravely chronicled her weight loss journey on the Style Network reality show “Ruby." A year later, this Southern inspiration, who once topped the scales at 500 pounds, still continues her quest to lose weight and become a healthy role model for all who struggle with obesity.

Ruby's lifesaving diet plan was created by Dr. Bradley who believes that Ruby's success can only come from a combination of nutrition, exercise and education. Today, Ruby's diet plan, Ourlife Health, can be experienced by all.

Ourlife is a physician-developed program that seeks to change and save your life from the perils of obesity. It's an a la carte service that allows you to custom-design your own program tailored to your own weight loss and lifestyle needs. Including a wellness, nutrition and exercise component, Ourlife prides itself in offering a complete lifestyle experience for weight loss.

To experience Ourlife Health you have two options:

  • Join the entire program, which includes a wellness, nutrition and exercise component
  • Sign-up for the Ourlife meal delivery service

Unfortunately, the former option is limited to those who reside in and around the Savannah, Georgia region.

In the coming months, the program will expand to develop a more robust online program so that anyone from around the country can experience it.

PRO
  • Ruby is an inspirational role model for those who need to lose weight
  • Program designed by doctors specializing in obesity
  • Offers a comprehensive diet plan for those in select regions
  • Meal delivery service is convenient and healthy
  • Program can result in weight loss
  • Online component coming soon
CON
  • Program has limited geographic reach
  • Meal delivery service does not teach you how to create and prepare your own calorie and portion-controlled meals
DIET and NUTRITION

The Ourlife Health program is a meal delivery plan that meets the recommendations put forth by the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association and American Cancer Society.

Inspired by Ruby's Southern roots, most of the dishes have a Southern cooking flare to them, but have been prepared without excess fat and heavy ingredients like breading and simple starches.

Each week, five lunches and five dinners are delivered to your door in addition to recommendations for breakfasts and snacks. Each Ourlife meal contains 275-475 calories and is comprised of a lean protein, vegetables and complex carbohydrate like a whole grain or starch.

Lunch entrees include Southwest Chicken Chili, Teriyaki Salmon Salad with Garlic Soy Ginger Dressing and Oven Baked Penne Lasagna.

Dinner options include Blackened Mahi-Mahi with Fresh Tomato Mango Relish, Grilled Chicken Breast with Tomatillo-Jalapeno Sauce, or Blackened Lump Crab Cakes.

EXERCISE

For those within the Savannah, Georgia area, special Ourlife Studios offer the Ourlife Fitness Circuit workout which is a fast, 30-minute hydraulic workout that fits into your busy day. Nine resistance settings, coupled with alternating life stations keep your heart rate going as you build muscle and stamina.

In the coming months, Ourlife Online will allow those who don't have access to an Ourlife Studio a full fitness regimen that can be done at home.

CONCLUSION

Ourlife Health weight loss program was inspired and is followed by Ruby Gettinger, star of the Style Network's weight loss reality show "Ruby." This Georgia-based program offers a complete wellness weight loss program for those who live in the area. For those who live outside of the region, they can experience the same kind of diet that has brought weight loss success to Ruby through the Ourlife Nutrition program, a meal delivery program that prepares calorie-controlled meals. The Ourlife program is planned to expand to include more online features in the coming months.

While this program is very respectable, for those who don't live in Georgia, getting the full benefits of the entire plan is unfortunately not possible at this time. Therefore, if you choose to order the meal delivery service, you are encouraged to speak with an Ourlife Health representative or your medical doctor in order to learn how to incorporate their healthy meals into a complete weight loss program.

I have to agree with Ruby regarding the Ourlife Fresh food...just after my first two weeks of orders I am finding myself actually craving healthier food! Not only have I lost a few pounds, but I am physically feeling sooo much better.

I have been on Ourlife Fresh for four weeks and I have lost 12.5 pounds! What is amazing is that I don't even feel like I am on a diet. None of that deprivation feeling that you expect. I am a total fan of this program, thanks to Ruby!

The shipping to California is $73/wk additional cost which is disappointing...

The meals are packaged very well. Much better than another brand that I have tried in the past. They arrived here in TX on Friday. The salads are absolutely delicious. I did not receive any recommendations for breakfasts and snacks but I eat cereal anyway.

I just received my first order of Ourlife Fresh and it is awesome! I have tried other meal programs but have been disappointed by the freeze-dried and frozen foods. I actually received a mini-cooler with really delicious, FRESH meals. I was initially skeptical but I am motivated by Ruby and will give this new food plan a shot!
