DIET-TO-GO anyone used this program?
 
;) Hello ladies (and gents)-

Has anyone out there used the diet-to-go food delivery service ?

I am seriously thinking about using- but would like some feedback before I sign up for yet ANOTHER "PROGRAM"

THANKS!!

Suzanne 3FC 12-11-2008 01:10 PM

I think there are several here that have used it, you'll find a few threads in this forum :) We also tried it a while back, our review is here if it helps any :)

Good luck! If you try it, let us know what you think :)

Hi there,

I tried the fresh version of this plan (not sure if you're interested in fresh or frozen) and wrote a report about my experiences on my blog here if you want to check that out.

Ultimately my verdict was that the food was DELICIOUS but, unfortunately, I didn't lose any weight! :( However, depending on what you've been eating already, it might be worth a try. The food is super tasty, but there's a fairly high amount of refined carbohydrate (especially bread: sandwich rolls, big sub rolls, etc). I think that may have been my issue; not sure.

Good luck, whatever you decide!

venusbirth 12-12-2008 12:32 PM

thaks for both responses ladies- HELPFUL !!!

kari1980 12-24-2008 03:09 AM

I'm thinking about giving it a try. I tried Nutrisystem and the food just wasn't for me.

crenita 12-24-2008 08:06 AM

I second Noodlebeans response.. the food was good but way too high in sodium and low in protein.. loved the food but did not lose one pound.. while on that program.
I have tried 4 meal delivery program and have been the most successful with Pure food fresh start and Bistro MD.

Good luck in what ever you try.....

kari1980 12-25-2008 11:11 PM

Oh, too bad. High blood pressure runs in the family so I can't eat anything to high in sodium :( but maybe i'll check it out.

Edited: I just placed an order w/Bistro MD but I think I'll try Diet-to-go next. I tend to switch around to see what suits me http://www.imageuploader1.info/image/BF/Bw.gif

mmaxxy 01-10-2009 02:25 PM

tried diets to go,prefer bistro md
 
Hello! The food tastes good on both bistro md and diets to go. Diets to go is less expensive than bistro. The proof is in the pudding(excuse the pun) I lost 3 pounds my first week with Bistro(currently in week 2) and never lost weight on diets to go! Hope that helps! Of course everybody is different.

kari1980 01-11-2009 03:20 AM

I agree. Bistro MD is great and I've lost a couple lbs. I will be checking out Diet to Go soon. Seems pretty affordable! http://www.imageuploader1.info/image/BF/Bi.gif

PrincessDietMuch 01-21-2009 12:31 PM

I just began my first day on Diet To Go's Low Carb Menu (not the regular which has all the bread). All I can say is wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, the food came next day delivery (it was shipped on Monday and I got it today, so that is wonderful news that I am only a one day shipping lane away from one of their many facilities). Secondly, the food was vacuum packed which is what I wanted (little disappointed that Pure Foods, which I was just on, did not do this because vacuum packing ensures safer food storage with all the air being sucked out). Lastly they use dry ice which keeps food totally frozen so less worries of bacteria or food poisoning which is a big factor for me. The black microwavable trays all came beautifully vacuum packed and sealed perfectly with everything being flash frozen from the moment the food was cooked in their kitchens. Everything was in order (though I wish they put the labels of the food on the front of each carton rather then on the back so you can see what's what in the freezer).

I am about to have lunch here soon but breakfast was absolutely unreal! I had the most delicious omelet you can imagine with two huge, plump and hearty sausage links! The vegetables they used are fajita style and were so delectable, I wished there was more of it in the tray (I never feel that way about veggies)! Because it's all protein, I felt full for hours! I am just now getting hungry (I had a feeling I might do better on a low carb plan rather than a low fat plan). I am always so hungry on low fat plans. Lunch is going to be old fashioned pot roast in a creamy mushroom sauce with the best looking green beans I have seen in ages and dinner is Prime rib in red wine sauce with amazingly fresh and pristine looking cauliflower! Instead of rice, pasta, orzo, couscous or bread, you get truly delectable, pristine and healthy veggies with your protein meals instead so it's good carbs. If lunch is anything like breakfast, I will be in heaven! I am going to buy some low carb chocolate from Russell Stovers and have one piece a night if I want as a treat and of course if I get hungry, have a piece of fruit split in half or something to stave off the munchies but so far so good!

I have heard that the regular low fat food is delicious, but not everyone lost as fast as they could have however I have heard great things about this low carb version which is why I went for this one (it's still almost $200.00 less a month than Bistro even though the low carb is their more expensive plan at Diet To Go). The Low Fat is only $125.00 a week delivered!!!!! My doctor said I should probably do a low carb plan because of my insulin resistance so here I am and so far (knock on wood) VERY pleased! :)

I'll keep you posted as I go along! :)

PrincessDietMuch 01-21-2009 05:06 PM

OK just a quick update since we don't really have a Diet To Go thread per'se, I just had lunch and I am in shock!!!! This is diet food?????

I just had the most mouth watering pot roast of my life! I had slices upon slices of mouth watering, fall apart beef with the most delectable mushroom cream sauce you can imagine! The collard greens were so intensely delicious with these tiny burst in your mouth pearl onions all folded into the creamy mushroom sauce and it was to die for! The green beans were squeaky and fresh and tasty! This tastes like your are eating at an uptown restaurant! Incredibly gourmet (I would eat this if I were not dieting)! I am honestly in shock here! I guess we'll know in a week or two if it takes off some of the weight but I am floored by all of this! I also don't feel shaky like I did on the regular low fat diets I have done. I can hardly wait to eat the prime rib tonight. I also ordered some of those infamous ChocoPerfection low carb rich European chocolate bars to have when I crave chocolate so I don't derail my efforts. I am stoked! :carrot: :carrot: :carrot:

PrincessDietMuch 01-21-2009 09:36 PM

Wow just had the prime rib and can't believe this diet at all. It was an actual piece of prime rib only smaller of course (a little more than a quarter of what a piece normally is but had all the thickness and everything). Scrumptious red wine sauce and incredibly delicious and fresh cauliflower. I am actually eating more healthy vegetables on this plan than I have with any my whole life! Delicious but even more importantly I am not shaking and hungry like I normally am on low fat plans, so this is a good sign. Had to remind myself it was dinner time as almost 5 hours passed and I was not really hungry! Yay!!! :carrot:

cheeseheader 01-22-2009 09:51 AM

I would have to agree, I Love Diet to go and chose it over Bistro. I just ordered two more weeks and I was able to substitute the meals that didn't grab me. I also feel i can provide better snacks then when I tried Bistro and I really like the actual breakfasts on Diet to go, it's not pastries and sugar free stuff.

PrincessDietMuch 01-22-2009 02:52 PM

Mmmm I just had the Pork Chop breakfast this morning and it was incredible! I have to say that none of the programs I have tried prior to this can compare. I love the food and more importantly, I am not starving like I usually am on other programs. At first I was concerned with the Atkin's approach, because it's a lot of beef, pork and sausage and stuff like that, but actually, they include fresh vegetables that are to die for with every meal so I am getting more fiber and heart healthy veggies then I ever ate before. I also am not shaky or hungry and that is a major first for me. It seems to be controlling my blood sugar and insulin much better so I feel more stable. I am eating anywhere from 1200-1400 calories per day and I feel better with this food. I hear that it causes a chemical reaction in your body and burns fat like crazy once it reaches a certain state so I am extremely hopeful with this plan (I don't know how they can afford to feed us all this extravagant food for only $166.00 a week delivered but I am stoked!!

The salmon and catfish dishes look like 4 star entrees! So huge and fresh looking! I love this diet!!! :carrot:

PrincessDietMuch 01-22-2009 05:14 PM

I feel like I am on Candid Camera here or something! I just had the baked salmon with creamy dill sauce and fancy greens and I am stunned. Seriously this is too much. The salmon was as good as I make and that's saying something. I am known for my baked salmon and this stuff was divine. The salmon was so fresh that it didn't even have a fish smell if you know what I mean. They aren't kidding when they say they cook this up fresh each week and flash freeze it. Huge, healthy and thick piece of beautiful salmon in a sauce I would love the recipe for! It just breaks apart with your fork. The green beans with that tangy fresh stewed tomato on top was incredible! This is diet food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????????????? ? If this is a dream, please don't wake me!

klc 01-22-2009 08:45 PM

Princess, thanks for the reports. You know we're all dying to hear how your weigh-in goes this week. Hope to hear wonderful news!!!
-Kathy

PrincessDietMuch 01-23-2009 03:29 PM

Thanks KLC! Well so far so good. I know I should wait to weigh, but I actually felt lighter today if you know what I mean so I was curious. I weighed in and lost two pounds so that's a good start for just a few days! :)

I had the tomato and spinach omelet with sausage today and thought I had died and gone to heaven. I am very surprised by this food! This is the kind of food I would expect to get at a restaurant, so I don't feel like I am even dieting! You should see the catfish I get to have later. It's a massive piece of incredibly fresh looking catfish with veggies. My husband was looking through the freezer at some of the food and could not believe it himself. Last night I had what they call Hamburger Pizza (really it's a gourmet hamburger with lots of cheese on top). The smell was making him crazy while it was cooking. I had a bite and I swear it is one of the most delicious hamburgers I think I have ever tasted and I am VERY funny about hamburger! He wanted a bite so I gave him one and he suddenly wanted the link to Diet To Go! He is thinking about doing it too because he has about 30 pounds he could lose. He's freaked out by the expense, but of course I explained this is actually one of the cheapest plans out there when you compare it to others (and the food is so gourmet and top quality)!

I just got today those infamous ChocoPerfection bars and OMG those are good! They are very low crab and have lots and lots of fiber and use none of the fake sugars that usually tear up your gut (though they might tear up your wallet at nearly $33.00 for 12 bars)! I will have those on stand by for those days I simply must have some chocolate.

So far I am very impressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The biggest thing for me is that I am not shaky like I normally am when I am dieting. I really do think it's the low carbs that is helping to keep my blood sugar stabilized. I can go for 4 hours and not be hungry (a major first for me)!
I love that there are no artificial sweeteners and stuff like that on this diet The breakfasts are real breakfasts and you feel really full.

If it had not been for cheeseheader, I would have never even known about this diet (never ran across it in my research). I can't thank her enough! This is awesome! :carrot:

cheeseheader 01-23-2009 04:45 PM

Glad to hear things are going well! I get my new shipment next week and I"m excited since I did some substitutions. I owe it to these boards that I found Diet to Go, these forums really do have great members and great information!

klc 01-23-2009 07:24 PM

Cheeseheader, congrats on your results. If I'm reading it right, you lost 5.8 lbs your first week, so you've lost another 7 over the last 2 weeks??? That's great.:bravo:
-Kathy

PrincessDietMuch 01-23-2009 07:50 PM

Well this was a first. Just had the catfish and the fillet they gave me was so huge I shared it with my husband (totally serious). Cannot believe they give you that huge a piece of catfish! My God! It was larger than what I have had in a restaurant! Delicious! Incredibly filling.

I actually spoke to someone there today because I was actually worried that the food is almost too good (meaning what if I don't lose on this). I spoke to a very nice lady who actually explained that the low carb is the plan people lose the most on (not the regular low fat). That often people will use it to jumpstart their weight loss and not stay on it because it can be strict for some. Strict with all this incredible food! She said that it's because they miss the carbs, the muffins, pasta and stuff like that. Actually I don't miss that because I didn't like the feeling I had on that food. I was always hungry and shaky. I went 5 hours before having dinner and was not even hungry and that's truly miraculous for me. The only thing I do miss terribly are my Starbucks Frappuccino's. God I do miss those.....

I hope to be able to afford this for a long time to come. This is the bomb!!

cheeseheader 01-23-2009 07:56 PM

Thanks klc. I actually lost the 7 before I did DTG and then lost 5.8. The last week I tried Bistro to see which company I liked, and I stayed the same :(. But no gain. This coming week I'm back on DTG, so I expect to see a loss, YAY!

klc 01-23-2009 09:28 PM

cheesehead, those are still great results! We'll look forward to hearing about your and princess's journey (we always love success stories!!!)
-Kathy

PrincessDietMuch 01-24-2009 04:07 PM

Jumping up and down here! I have lost 4 pounds! Not only that but I am no longer hungry all the time. I don't get all those insulin spikes from muffins, bread, rice and pasta. I feel wonderful! The food is incredible (although I do not like the meatloaf at all..that was a surprisingly bad dish considering most of their stuff is so top quality). I threw that away and had a string cheese and a glass of milk instead.

Their scrambled egg breakfast was so good this morning, that I was shaking my head in disbelief! The ChocoPerfection Chocolate Bars let me have my chocolate every day without hurting my carb plan so this is totally working out!

I may reward myself with an occasional Frappuccino because I will go crazy without those in my life but other than that, I am certain I made the right choice and am so grateful for this place! I would never have known about Diet To Go!!!!

I still can't get over that prime rib and salmon! Can't wait to try the Cioppino...mmmmmm. :carrot:

crenita 01-25-2009 08:25 AM

Princess and Cheeseheader:bravo: Good for you two.....Glad you doing well and liking the process......:dancer:. It is so exciting to find something that works and that you feel you can stick to.That is the most important thing no matter what plan you use

A question for you .....what kind of instructions did they provide re add on's or snacks..... It has been sooo long since I had their low fat program and I don't remember what was said about the low carb plan......

Anyway, have a wonderful week and keep posting.. It is fun to see your excitement and enjoyment.:cheer:
Best to you both........Renita

cheeseheader 01-25-2009 09:29 AM

There is no instructions for adding snacks, it's a breakfast, lunch and dinner plan. They do provide a menu with the calorie intake of each meal and the total for the day. What I did is just add a few low calorie snacks between meals and it worked fine. I'm trying to stay between 1200-1500 calories a day.

PrincessDietMuch 01-25-2009 02:32 PM

Actually I looked at their low fat plan last night because I've heard it's just as scrumptious. I honestly think this is the perfect company because they have three menu plans and all three have amazing gourmet dishes that are even cheaper than the other programs. I was looking at it because I thought if I begin to get tired of the food at some point, I will do what some of the others are doing over there (switch back and forth to keep my body guessing and not getting used to something for too long). It will keep things interesting and keep me losing weight with fewer plateau's. As Cheeseheader said, they give you three full meals (and trust me they are full...loaded in fact) and if you are hungry in between, you wing it according to what you need.

Here's the part that trips me out about the low carb plan. I am not hungry in between meals! I am not kidding either. If I do get hungry, I plan to have string cheese or an apple if I must (carbs so I try not to) or a glass of milk. Right now I have added a low carb chocolate bar every day and I am still losing and doing very well. I was actually worried that they did not include snacks, but then I realized that most of the snacks other programs have, I cant use anyway (soy based) and they only serve to make me hungrier. The fruit that most of these places send is not as nice as the fruit I can buy myself, so I am cool with buying maybe $10.00 worth of snacks if I get hungry. I keep Lactaid Fat Free milk, string cheese, apples and low carb chocolate bars in the house. Because my blood sugar isn't spiking and my insulin is better stabilized on the low carb, I don't get that horrible shaky feeling and all those hunger pangs so it works out very well.

I rewarded myself today and am having a Starbucks Frappuccino right now in caramel (mmmmmm)! I wanted to reward myself for a good week and I love those! I have gotten conflicting reports on the low fat plan. Everyone seems to agree that it may actually be the most delicious food out there of any plan but some swear they hardly lost any weight while others say they lost just fine. I guess it's very individualistic but the general consensus seems to be that everyone loses on the low carb for sure (which I have no trouble believing)! I like that they have this many meal plan options so that if your body gets tried of one, you can simply switch to the other food and it's all fantastic and delicious. I am thrilled to have found this place!! :carrot:

P.S. I must admit I prefer having UPS than Fed Ex so that's another reason I love this plan (they ship UPS which has always been so much more reliable for me than Fed Ex which manages to screw up a great deal no matter where I have ever lived). I am not a Fed Ex fan that's for sure! I love love love that the food is fresh than flash frozen (no worries about food spoilage) and that they use dry ice which keeps it even colder and all for much less than everyone else charges). And because they have so many centers all over, it only takes one day for it to get to me! VERY pleased! :)

crenita 01-25-2009 03:00 PM

Princess....... my only experience with them has been with the low fat plan.... and if your body is a protein lover.. like mine, it didn't give me enough protein and too much bread( which I love)) but need to stay away from. I appear to be very carb sensitive and that along with some of the higher sodium content items did not work with my body chemistry.

The low carb is another thing.. until I tired these various meal plans I had no idea how sensitive I am to the lack of protein or that carbs really send my hunger meter into over drive. I can tolerate a little each day but if I do normal recommended amounts I am STARVED.. and fruit is the worse. Of course I live in Florida with all this lovely fresh stuff. I had a family member send me the best honeybell oranges as a gift and ONE starts the engine going for that day and it won't stop..... I had to give them away ( that was sad).... but just can't manage them.
Glad your doing so well....... keep on updating us..

PrincessDietMuch 01-27-2009 01:04 AM

Still going strong. Down 6 pounds. I keep looking at that low fat plan and really excited to try that version as well because the food looks unreal (and I've heard that it is incredible). Whoever does their cooking does a darn god job! I think what I will do is rotate every 3-4 weeks so I get the best of both worlds. The prices are more reasonable and their food is better so for me the choice is easy. I just know that I will get tired of eating the same thing if I don't rotate from low carb to low fat. Really liking things so far! :D

kari1980 01-27-2009 09:02 PM

re
 
Totally agree! I am looking forward to next week's meal plan! This is a lifestyle that I can definitely stay on permanently...and a cheat day here and there. Plus I feel like I save money cuz otherwise I'd just be eating out all the time.

klc 01-29-2009 05:40 AM

DTG Buddies thread
 
I know I'm back seat driving, but why don't one of you DTG guys start a DietToGo buddies thread, so that all the DTG discussions and info will stay in one place. It will help the new guys out when they're looking for info on the different meal plans. If someone posts another question about DTG, one of you can point them to the thread. It looks like y'all are picking up steam, and starting up a 'community'.

Congrats on your weight losses:bravo: Wonderful news. And kudos to DTG (if they're monitoring the board) for providing tasty food that you guys are losing weight on. I am totally hooked on premium meal delivery, so I'm wanting all of these guys to stay healthy.
