It’s a Food Post: Diet-to-Go Review Part II

Everything I said in my first DTG review still rings true, so I’m not going to repeat myself. Instead, I will share pictures of a handful of the meals I ate during the week and review each one.

Waffle Sticks & Stuffed Spinach Shells

Waffle Sticks & Stuffed Spinach Shells

Breakfast: Waffle Sticks with Sugar Free Syrup
Grade: B+
DTG meals can be thawed in the refrigerator (they don’t have to be kept frozen), so there are certain meals that you can toast or bake in an oven and have them taste home cooked. Waffles are a perfect example, and they toasted up perfectly. I only used one syrup cup which went a long way.

Lunch: Stuffed Spinach Shells with Carrots & Vanilla Pudding
Grade: A-
Pasta meals heat up perfectly in the microwave, but next time I’ll take the vegetables out first. They get steamed and mushy and inedible for me.  A lot of DTG meals also come with a dessert, like vanilla pudding. It was okay; I’m not really a fan of vanilla pudding in general so I skipped it.

Tomato Veggie Pie

Lunch: Tomato Veggie Pie with Couscous
Grade: C-
Although the couscous was lovely, the veggie pie was not. Perhaps my taste buds felt they were being tricked, because although it looks like lasagna, it isn’t. I took two bites and gave the rest to my coworker, who by the way thought it was tasty. Our two grades average a C- for this meal.

Mexican Pizza

Lunch: Mexican Pizza
Grade: A
In the package, the pizza was cut in half and stacked, so I thought it was only half of this. In fact I almost put it in the oven (I was at home, not at work, so a perfect opportunity to bake it) that way until I realized there were two. The pizza had rice, various beans, peppers and jalapenos. Absolutely delicious! Like most DTG meals, half of it would have filled me up but I ate it all anyway. It also came with a tub of sour cream, but I felt it tasted fine without it.

Bean Burrito & Rice

Bean Burrito & Rice

Dinner: Bean Burritos with Rice
Grade: A
The Mexican food theme continued at dinner with another huge portion. I microwaved these, and they were a bit mushy, but what do you expect with beans and cheese? I could have probably stopped at one, but I ate 2…and a half. Had to stop myself from eating that last piece.

Chicken Waldorf Salad

Chicken Waldorf Salad

Dinner…and Lunch: Chicken Waldorf Salad
Grade: A
I’m really proud of what I did here. The portion of chicken salad I received was HUGE! It also came with a big honey wheat roll. I thought, there’s no way I can eat this all in one meal, so I put half the salad in a FlatOut wrap and brought the rest to work the next day for lunch. The salad was amazing. One of my favorites that I look forward to having again.

Flat Iron Steak & Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Flat Iron Steak & Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Dinner: Flat Iron Steak with Wasabi Mashed Potatoes
Grade: A
Tender, flavorful, and another good portion of food. It was hard to believe I had just microwaved this steak for 2 minutes; I felt like I had a gourmet meal. The mashed potatoes have a hint of heat from the wasabi, and the veggies? Well I skipped those mush piles again.

***

Final Verdict: Overall, I am highly pleased with Diet to Go and will continue to order from them. In the future I may downgrade to only lunch and dinner, but I like their breakfasts so much that I may stick with what I’ve got. I like that there is an option for 5 days of meals so you can pick a couple days out of the week to do something else, or even mix and match meals on certain days.

Since I am on the 1,200 calorie plan (which is way low for me, honestly), I still have the freedom to sensibly snack in between meals, or maybe get sloshed on old-fashions or beer one night (just kidding but not really).

Did I lose any weight? No, but I maintained my weight while eating the DTG meals AND having a lot of alcohol/other random snacks. I also didn’t really work out much last week, so what can ya do. I’m still not really back to that old mentality of “eye on the prize,” but I’m getting there.

I have always said that “when I win the lottery” the first thing I’m going to do is hire a personal chef. Since I am 305 times more likely to get struck by lightning than win the lottery, Diet to Go is a more than worthy alternative.

    The difference between your regular plan and the low carb is huge!!! I mean I’m not lacking any tasty treats myself, but wow. I wish I had better pictures as I went this week but mine suck. It does help give an idea. Are you going to continue with DTG?

    I’ve gained a whole dress size this past year and lead a busy life. I don’t cook well, and was tired of order-in and carry out every day. I knew I needed better nutrition, and something LESS fattening! Saw a TV ad for this plan, and the fact that they offered a fresh meal drop off in my area, instead of FedEx or UPS home delivery, was appealing to me. I didn’t want to go the frozen Lean Cuisine route.

    So I signed up for this plan online from http://www.couponchief.com/diettogo and picked up my first batch of meals today. There is NO commitment. You can stop and start when you want. They offer three types of meal plans. Tonight’s entree was White Fish (low fat plan). It was EXCELLENT! It was easy to prepare and tasted so much better than I expected. Looking forward to the weight I may lose. At the very least, I will be eating better. This plan costs less than what I’ve been spending, eating out every day. I don’t even feel like I’m dieting!

      Diet to Go is only good for the convenience of fairly decent meals already prepared for you. As far as for weight loss – I haven’t lost a pound in 7 weeks! And try as I might, I cannot locate a single person who has lost weight on this plan – I friend of mine is doing it with me and has had the same non-result. You can find plenty of reviews of their food on line – but no positive weight loss reviews (their website obviously some – but I want independent reviews).
