Diet Delivery Meals

For those looking to lose weight in a convenient and easy manner, there are several diet delivery meals programs available to help you achieve your goals to look and feel great!

If you're interested in looking at the more popular of these meal replacement diet programs and outlining their benefits and any downsides there may be to doing them, I'll be checking them out here and publishing my own findings.

That means you'll get to learn about how diet meals that are delivered to your home can help you to lose weight without the hassles of working at a complicated and time consuming diet sheet type of dieting solution.

You don't need to do all that hard work if you don't want to or if you simply don't have the time to.

What Are Diet Delivery Meals?

If you're new to this concept, the general idea is that instead of you shopping for all the ingredients, then preparing and cooking your own diet meals, you take advantage of a specialist company that does all that for you.

All the special, low calorie, diet meals that you need to eat over a given time period are created for you and shipped to your home.

All you need to do is follow the diet plan instructions and take each meal at the appropriate time of the day, heat it in a microwave if necessary... and eat it!

All the calorie counting and portion size calculations are done for you, along with the meal prep.

Each individual meal is packaged so you simply remove that packaging, heat and eat the meal when it's time to.

This is a great way to lose weight when you are a busy person, maybe spending a lot of hours at your job or being a busy mom.

The only downside at this point is the fact that you have to pay for the service.

But as you'll see as I get deeper into this, quite often what you pay works out to be comparable or even less than what you would normally spend on your meals.

So let's get into it!

How Does Diet Meal Delivery Work?

Diet meal delivery services in the United States have become increasingly popular, especially among health-conscious consumers and busy dieters looking to lose weight without all the hassles associated with traditional ways of dieting.

In addition to being very simple and highly convenient, many meal replacement diet delivery services can aid in the weight loss process while promoting healthy eating habits. They also make it easier to follow a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet.

This is how they work in general.

A dieter signs up with and pays for their chosen program and then takes delivery of a parcel of packaged meals. The number of meals depends on the company's plan which may be one week or as much as one month, as in the case of the biggest of these companies, Nutrisystem.

Meal packages generally contain breakfast, lunch and dinner meals with desserts and sometimes between-meal snacks that are all low in calories while being balanced in nutrition.

The idea is to take each meal, be it breakfast lunch or dinner at the appropriate time of the day and remove it from its packaging and prepare it as per instructions that are usually found on the packaging. The diet meals are designed to completely replace all your regular meals so you can completely control what you eat each day, limiting calorific intake as well as portion control.

Over a period of several days, you can weigh yourself and you should notice a reduction in weight as long as you have stuck to the diet and not eaten any "cheat" snacks or meals, or drank any sugary drinks during that time.

Do You Need a Diet Meal Program?

I'll get into the details about some of the top meal replacement diet programs in additional articles published on this site, but you should probably ask yourself if you really need the help of one of these programs to lose weight.

Can you possibly lose weight by taking a firm grip of your current eating habits and change them to be healthier and lower in refined, simple carbohydrates and added sugars?

If you can do that for yourself, then you probably don't need to spend money having someone else make your meals for you. If not, then maybe you do!

The top nationally delivering dieting programs in this category are Nutrisystem, Medifast and Jenny Craig, along with Diet to Go and Bistro MD. I'll review each separately (see below for page links).

To start with here is an external review that's recently been published for how one such company is preparing for the present day dieters:
