Andrew Kelly who is a meal prep guru from Liverpool has just completed his 1,500th consecutive day of running, covering almost 19,000 miles in over four years of daily runs. Andrew, 27, is the co-founder of Benno Box, a meal prep company, and attributes his superhuman fitness to his healthy diet and discipline.

Andrew averages 12.6 miles per day over four years (just under a half marathon each day), and he is a machine when it comes to long-distance running. Having competed in some of the biggest races in the world, including 200-250-mile events in Florida and Arizona, Liverpool’s very own Roger Bannister is showing no signs of slowing down.

In 2019 he started running 2 miles each day. He soon became obsessed and decided to start making his own healthy, high-protein, low-sugar meals to help him reach peak condition. As his obsession with running grew, and completely quit drinking alcohol on New Year’s Eve 2019, and as his stamina improved, people started asking about his diet more.

Andrew began providing family and friends with his meal prep meals in 2020 during lockdown; they grew so popular that he chose to leave his work and open Benno Box. Four years fast forward; Andrew has now run 1,500 days straight and Benno Box has provided over 1,700 clients with over 100,000 healthy meals.

Andrew explained: 

“I started running just a couple of miles a day but became addicted to how it made me feel. I started testing myself and realised that to get to the next level I needed to cut out alcohol and have a healthy diet. I initially trained as a KP whilst at college so drew on that knowledge from the chefs to create nutritious, protein rich and super tasty meals — it was my diet that helped me get to the next level.”

“During lockdown, after supplying friends and family with my meals, they spread like wildfire by word of mouth. I quit my job as an engineer and founded Benno Box with my friend. Four year later, we have a unit just outside the city centre and a great team — helping change lives one healthy meal at a time — and I’ve completed some of the most challenging races in the world.”

Benno Box, like Andrew’s running, has continued to grow and thrive. With delicious meals such as Salt & Pepper Chicken Noodles, Tex Mex Bowl, and Korean Beef and delivery across Merseyside, Benno Box has become a big hit amongst those wanting a healthy diet and professionals who don’t have time to cook.

Benno Box offers a huge menu for custom orders or set meal plans such as 5 meals per week for as little as £39.99 delivered. Customer feedback has been profound — with countless reviews from people who have lost weight, overcome eating disorders and lived healthier lives. Like Andrew, many sport enthusiasts and athletes have attributed the Benno Box diet to taking their fitness to the next level.

With lots of variety, Benno Box offers a sustainable and 360 degree approach to diet — with lots of snacks, treats and drinks to complement the healthy meals. It’s very much a team effort, with chef Jordan a whizz in the kitchen and Andrew’s girlfriend Layla making the protein bake recipes including protein pancakes, waffles, flapjacks, cookies and more.

Andrew summarised: 

“My diet and lifestyle has changed my life and enabled me to run for 1,500 days straight, as well as compete in the world’s most gruelling challenges. At Benno Box, we want to give others that gift too and to hear the feedback from customers is so rewarding — from people who have lost weight to people who have healed their eating disorders to people who have taking their fitness to the next level.”

Andrew has averaged 12.6 miles per day over four years (just under a half marathon each day), and has competed in some of the world’s most gruelling long distance races.
