Diet-to-Go: Week 2 {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.
Remember my review a few weeks ago for Diet-to-Go, and how much I loved trying out all the deliciously prepared and delivered meals?  Surprise!  Another week’s worth of meals showed up unexpectedly last week!  Winner, winner!  I’m excited to share with you even MORE thoughts and MORE meals, especially because I think this week’s meals were even better then the last.

This time, I wanted to really see if I could lose weight sticking to this plan.  The last 5 trial days were not consecutive, and were really scattered around some poor-decision holiday eating.  Results: I lost a pound!  Its not much, but if this success was continuous, imagine what could happen after sticking with this diet for several weeks in a row.
I really tried to stick to eating only these meals, and all 3–breakfast, lunch, and dinner–during these 5-days of trial review.  Since I’m such a foodie, I thought I’d be fairly hungry throughout the day and that these frozen meals wouldn’t be filling or as much food as I’m used to, but I was frequently impressed with how full I felt after these meals.  Expecting an average TV-dinner where the words “filling and “substantial” aren’t the first ones that come to mind, the extras really make these meals more substantial, and I felt just as full and satisfied at the end of the day.  It was also easier to stay away from my desserts in the freezer, knowing that I was sticking to a meal plan that didn’t include my own discretionary calories.
So somehow I lost the menu that usually comes with all of the meals.  With everything frozen, I was worried about what meal was what, if it was intended to be a lunch or dinner, if there was supposed to be a yogurt associated with that breakfast, etc.  Not to worry, Diet-to-Go had everything online: http://diettogo.com/view-menu.  I was able to look up pictures of the whole meal, with the sides and drinks, so I could really visualize what the day’s meals looked like all warmed up and prepared!  It was also a great reference to use exactly like a menu, and select from the pictures what I was in the mood to eat that meal.
Here were some of the winners and close seconds that will give you a good idea of what kinds of meals are available (and keep in mind that these are the tradition-style meals, and that vegetarian and low-carb are also available):
Chugwater chili with sour cream, mozzarella, and a cornbread biscuit
I loved the big chunks of veggies, thick carrot rounds and chickpeas, and cornbread was delicious!day2
Whole grain pancakes, strawberry maple syrup, turkey sausage, and…asparagus?
Ya, my only qualm was the asparagus, which I thought was a little random and watery, but I still ate it, happy to get my veggies in early in the day.  It may be hard to see, but there are really 3 pancakes here, and the strawberry syrup was delicious.  day1
Michigan Turkey salad sandwich on a dakota roll, lentil chili, an apple, and DanActive
This one I give a B+, and only because reheating sandwiches is tough.  You’re bound to get some inconsistencies in texture when you’re freezing and reheating bread on the outside, and a moist meaty salad in the inside.  However, VERY filling.  I couldn’t finish it all and had to save the yogurt and chili for later.
day3
Turkey salisbury steak, mashed potatos and gravy, green beans, sesame breadsticks, and chocolate pudding
I’m loving these really beefy dinners.  They are very filling, and look at all these veggies!  They fill up half the plate.  That’s what I like to see!  The turkey was very flavorful–this week seemed to be very turkey-heavy, while last week’s was a lot of chicken, btw.
day5
Blackened turkey loin, carrot chipotle puree, and asparagus risotto
This was the most delicious meal I’ve had in months.  I was astonished by the flavor, texture, color, and quality!  Very impressive for a frozen dinner!
day4
Have these meals convinced you yet that this is a great idea?  Really, go try out Diet-to-Go!  For the convenience of having carefully selected diet meals delivered and planned out, I think this is a rockin’ program to get hooked on.

    It seems like the breakfast options are a bit smaller than the lunch or dinner portions. They do give nice, big servings. I think my boys could probably split one of those dinners!

  2. You’ll have to let us know if you lost any weight from sticking to this diet-to-go eating plan!
