But Deanna seems not to be having that experience.
I really need a jumpstart, and I want to do all 3 meals! Arghhhh.
Buttah the good thing about both DTG and PFFS is that there are no contracts. You can try one for a week or two and then switch to another. You probably need to do atleast 2 weeks b/c almost everyone loses weight the first week they "shake up" their diet.
I have to say I have been beyond impressed with the food at DTG. I also like the flexibility of ordering lunch/dinner and I enjoy the massive variety of food. I am not sure if I have researched any other program that has such a wide a variety of choices from individual food to the different meal plans.
HOWEVER, although DTG seems to be working for me. I have to say I do find some of their nutrition information a little suspect. I even called customer service this week and complained b/c for instance in one week there was Beef Short Ribs and the calorie count was 500 something and then in another week it had it again but it went down to 200 something
Some of them had a minor difference because of the side they substitute or the portion (i.e. depending if they were serving it for lunch or dinner), but other's I am just not sure. So I am going to finish out a cycle like I said I was going to (I am on 3 weeks of DTG and there are 5 weeks total), but after that I may try another program. My weight loss strategy is all about counting calories and I don't like the idea of busting my a$$ in the gym, and skimping on my fav treats only for my calorie count to be way off anyway b/c DTG is not accurately accounting their food. But again I can't prove that all their counts are off, and it very well may not be. On the Low Carb plan 90% of your calories come from whatever protein you eat and they are typically 4 oz, the veggies really are negligible for the most part. I'd be surprised if any of the veggies exceeded more than 100 calories in any one meal BUT like I said they have some meals where the calorie count is 218 calories
That would mean the protein was only 100 calories? Riiiiiiiiight.
Anyway I'm just keeping it real! Let me know what you decide, I am about to go for my run.
