About Chris Sloan

Image
Chris Sloan, OPTAVIA Coach, 45lbs lost in 12 weeks comparison photo.

My name is Chris Sloan and I, like so many others struggled with my weight for years not realizing the toll being overweight was taking on my body. At the beginning of 2021 I began to take my weight loss efforts seriously and have lost 60 lbs so far on the OPTAVIA 5&1 Plan! It's been amazing, and while my journey isn't over, I'm well on my way!

When I started I had a hard time finding the top OPTAVIA 5&1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best OPTAVIA recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those not familiar, OPTAVIA is not some fad diet but instead is a program designed to help those who are looking to lose weight make better choices with their health and wellness via better habits.

We've worked hard to make sure that all OPTAVIA 5 and 1 recipes listed are approved for the OPTAVIA 5&1 plan.

Hi Chris,

 

I can not thank you enough for creating a way to easily find wonderful Lean & Green recipes... I personally am not doing the Optavia Plan, however my husband is, and I am trying to being as supportive and encouraging as I can be.  In addition, I have always love to cook :-) BUT I absolutely can not believe how much I've learned in the last 6 weeks, about how by just making a few ingredient choices, how those little subtle changes make such a huge impacted on the overall calorie count to a meal and avoids that tired bloated feeling one gets after eating.

 

Thank you again

Laurie
