Diet To Go - An Easier Way To Lose Weight?
Diet meal delivery is one of the hottest trends in the weight loss industry. Movie stars, athletes, fashion models and high powered execs - many of them are using a diet delivery service to lose weight and stay slim.
Getting your meals specially prepared for you by dietitians and chefs, then delivered to your door makes losing weight a pampered, luxurious experience (instead of what it used to be - struggle, deprivation, feelings of starvation).
And with many plans under $20 a day, it's now affordable for most people.
Diet To Go offers freshly prepared diet meals delivered all over the United States including Hawaii and Alaska. This is a major advantage since most diet delivery plans only ship to the continental U.S. and most use preservatives in their food.
Is Diet to Go the right diet delivery plan for your needs? Here's a review of the Diet To Go service, pros and cons, to help you decide:
Diet To Go menu plans are customized based on your goals (i.e. to lose weight, to maintain a healthy lifestyle, etc.) and you can choose your preferences for low fat, low carb or vegetarian options.
Meals are freshly prepared and then packed in dry ice, and shipped in a styrofoam cooler. Your food for an entire week will be shipped on the first Monday or Tuesday after you place your order. You should receive it in 2 to 3 days after.
How It Works:

Prices vary based on how many meals you want per day (2 or 3), type of plan (low fat, low carb or vegetarian), how many days you want food delivered (5 or 7), how many weeks you order at one time (a longer order will save you some money), and how many calories a day your plan offers (1200 or 1600).
Generally prices range from $15 to $20 per day.
