How Does the Food Taste?

BBQ Chicken

BBQ Chicken

Diet-to-Go sent us a few days worth of food free of charge to try out.

The order arrived when they promised and was chilled and well packaged.

All the meals were organized in separate vacuum packed trays by meal. Dieters are expected to use the online menus to organize each day’s meals accordingly.

There were both microwave and conventional oven heating directions on each meal and I opted for the microwave.

What I liked about the food

Egg Quesadilla

Egg Quesadilla

All the meals I sampled tasted great. They were full of flavor and seasoned well.

The portion size was big enough to make me feel satisfied and not needing more.

The texture and taste quality was better than what a dieter would find in the frozen meal section of his/her grocery store.

What I didn’t like

Stuffed Shells

Vegetarian Stuffed Shells

The meals’ ingredient lists were long and contained preservatives as well as partially hydrogenated oils. It would be nice if DTG could figure out how to make a more natural product despite the fear of spoilage from shipping and storage.

Also, one of the breakfast sides was apple juice, which is just sugar. A small fruit cup would have been a better choice.

Sample 1 Day Meal Plan

Final Thoughts

Overall, Diet-to-Go is a good option for those that have trouble controlling portion size and choosing healthy meal options especially for those that don’t have the time or expertise to cook for themselves.

It is also one of the most affordable diet delivery services available, without compromising on quality and service.

Diet-to-go is commended not only for their great tasting food, but also for including fresh fruit and yogurt as part of their menu which ensures dieters get the recommended daily allowances of vitamins while using their service.

Diet-to-Go offers the customer many options that seem to fit any lifestyle, as well as the option to pick up fresh non-frozen meals which would improve the overall quality of their meals.
