I spent my adult life pursuing a career in television journalism. I was always passionate about getting to the root of every story and that’s really where my journey for 6meal began. As most people are aware the television business is erratic and stressful, it takes a toll on your mind and body and it did the same with me which is when I decided to change my food habits. As someone who had always kept a very strict diet regime, I found myself experimenting with healthier forms of eating. As I moved on from the world of television to marketing I ensured that my meals were always on time and had enough healthy components to it. One personal encounter however really set the tone for my journey in food. One day I met a member of my family, who suffered from diabetes (a metabolic disorder) and to control that she would constantly be under medication. The medication made her weak and had robbed her of her zest for life… This incident sparked a light in me. Over the years I had realized that by changing my diet had made me healthier. I went to the doctors less and found that the diet that I was following drastically reduced the need for medicines. That is when the idea for 6meal came in…. I spent the next 1-year researching, meeting people and gathering information on metabolic disorders. I discovered that there was a great deal of misconception about these diseases and that a simple change in ones diet could help control them. 6meal is one of its kinds, metabolic disorder management company with an innovative approach in tackling the dietary needs of an individual. 6meal looks beyond just delivery of food. Our vision is to offer a complete solution for a healthier lifestyle. We are not just a quick bite order company, our approach is that it takes time, patience, and commitment to make a change.
