People say you should not eat them all the time, blah blah but really it comes down to what works for you. I lost 60 lbs 2 years ago eating them everyday. It was not because I stopped eating them that I gained the weight but rather I temporarily gave in to the temptations of my hubby's food temporarily, as in 8 months to a year of his food and here I am battling it again.

I would have NO chance of losing weight if I did not eat these meals. They are easy and fast and I do not have to plan, I just pop them in when I get home and in 5 minutes am eating.
FLIPPING THANK YOU!!!!! I have been using frozen meals for all of my meals. I am out of my 280s and am 5 pounds away from being in my 250s and it has been less than two months since I started. I am not a cook, not even a little. I realized the problems in the past came from me trying to cook up my own meals. Uhm, didn't work! I hate to think of all of the time and money I used up trying to be Miss Chef knowing my as* can't do it! I finally gave up after trying months and months of cooking and still being the same weight. I went to Walmart and got some frozen meals. I was there more than an hour picking out things that I liked and that I knew I would eat. Smart ones, Lean Cuisines and Healthy Choice. I added some fiber bars, Special K bars, plenty of water, steamable veggies and I was on my way. I sat down and formulated a plan on my calories, proteins and such. I didn't have to cook and it worked out well. I just pop my meals in the microwave and eat them. I wanted to be in my 250s so bad. I refer to my 250s as being in The Promised Land as I have not been in my 250s since my early 30s and I am almost 40. Just five more pounds and I am there, all thanks to my frozen meals. I used to try to cook, burn it, become upset and eat junk. Now I grab a meal and eat it. I already know what I feel like eating. Smart Ones have barbeque chicken breast that I can feast on when I am in the mood. I can also have steak and even meatloaf from all of them. I love it. I wish I had came to this realization sooner but better late than never!
