I did a couple weeks of Freshology.
Overall, I'd recommend trying it if they have a coupon, but I decided Healthy Chef Creations was slightly better for me.

Positives:
+ I definitely lost weight
+ Agree with Alenna, the food, particularly having fresh fruits and salads not some "frozen pasta whatever", was what sold me on it. I found it to generally be on par with HCC.
+ Frequent delivery. This was the one thing that was slightly better than HCC. HCC delivers once a week, which isn't really a problem because their packaging keeps things fresh. But Freshology delivered even more often (2x a week), which was nice.

Negatives:
- Expensive. I'd say it's worth it if that's what it takes to get to your weight goal, just maybe wait for a coupon.
- Lack of customization. HCC allows you to customize what you get as much as you want. Freshology would only let me pick 1 food type to remove from my menu. It would have been nice to be able to pick the meals, so I could have repeated my favorites and skipped others.
- Tech problems with their website. This might be a temporary thing, but it was a pain for me. Had to contact customer support too much it seemed like.
- The food was -usually- really good. But there was some lameness with a few sides. Several dinners had the same dry, brown rice. There was corn that seemed like it came from a can in a couple meals. No big deal because most meals were great, but if you're paying $$$$ I expect better than canned corn. With HCC, I never encountered that.
