Our full program includes 21 meals per week (7 breakfasts, 7 lunches and 7 dinners). All meals are fresh, healthy, nutritionally complete…and delivered directly to you. Our program is like having your own personal dietitian and chef, providing you with a sensible way to manage your weight – and your kidney disease.
How Our Program Helps Manage Your Diet for Kidney Disease
Helping You Lose Weight
You can address every single risk factor for kidney disease -- and even slow the progression of the disease -- by maintaining a healthy weight. We can help you reduce your calorie intake for effective weight loss by doing the calorie counting for you! Each of our meals provides nutrient dense foods, while limiting fat and sugar content. Meals are also balanced to ensure proper nutrition levels, and to reduce hunger as you lose weight. Thanks to our safe, sensible approach to weight loss and nutrition, many dialysis patients find it easier to manage their blood pressure using fewer medications when following our program, and maintain better lab values too.
Following Dietary Guidelines
According to the National Institutes of Health, managing kidney disease requires you to control your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and salt intake. Our 1200-calorie plan meets national guidelines for a low-sodium diet, providing an average of less than 1500 milligrams of sodium per day. It is also beneficial to limit the amount of proteins, potassium and phosphorus in a kidney disease diet. Since we are not a fad, high-protein diet, we are the only plan providing the appropriate amount of protein for kidney disease patients. Additionally, our plans contain foods that are limited in potassium and phosphorus.
You know it’s important for your health to lose weight, but that doesn’t make it easy. We do! We understand that you’re busy, and it can be a challenge to do all your own meal planning, grocery shopping and cooking. That’s why we’ve designed our plans to take care of some of the most common obstacles to successful weight loss for you:
Too Much Time & Effort
We take the work out of eating healthy by bringing you fully-cooked meals that are both tasty and nutritious. It’s like having your own personal chef! Just heat and eat.
Not Enough Variety
We offer more than 100 delicious meals at three different calorie levels. With our 5-week rotating menu, you’ll never get bored from week to week.
Hard To Shop Fresh
Fresh, wholesome ingredients - including fruits, vegetables and salads - are an essential part of our meal plans. Meals are also freshly prepared, not frozen or freeze-dried.
Kidney disease is a serious condition that can vary in each individual. We recommend that you contact your registered dietitian or other healthcare provider to discuss your specific weight loss goals and dietary needs as you consider using Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating meal plans.
