A while back I purchased a Phillydealyo for Diet-to-go. The next few days you are going to see what this plan looks like…

$45 for a 5-Day Low Fat Meal Plan

Diet-to-go as they describe it is “a calorie-restricted food delivery company. From our chefs in the kitchen to their customer service reps on the phones, they are obsessed with providing you the healthiest, most affordable and best tasting calorie-restricted meals on the planet. Diet-To-Go’s goal is for you to love their meals so much that achieving your goals of losing weight, maintaining weight or improving your overall health and well-being becomes much easier.”

The deal: five (5) days of Low-Fat Traditional or Low-Fat Vegetarian meals for $45. See the website here: . The regular cost is $101.99.

Per the website, I will get 5 days of meals (3 meals a day) that total 1,200 calories. They also recommend adding 2 glasses of milk a day. I chose the Low-Fat traditional.

The change for me… I usually eat between 1300-1500 calories a day. I also have a lot of snacks. This program may be a little light for me and without any snacks I may be hungry between meals too. I am going to try and follow the program, I mean its only a few days.. we shall see. FYI, this isn’t something I am interested in doing all the time– too much money for me but I am excited to see how the food is and maybe get some ideas from their meals.

I picked up on today (Tuesday) after work and made my first meal for dinner.

Herb crusted whitefish with creamy polenta, broccoli florets, and sesame breadsticks.

All I had to do was take out the lemon and breadsticks and heat in the microwave for about 3 mins then squirt the lemon on the fish. I served with my usual side of skim milk which was actual also recommended by deit-to-go.

It was really good! The fish was a big portion of white, flakey and tastiness. It reminded me of tortilla crusted fish lean cuisine but much bigger and fresher. The lemon worked well with it also but it needed a little salt.

The polenta was something different I wouldn’t normally make for myself and reminded me of grits. I liked.

Broccoli was broccoli. A little chewier then if I made it fresh but good addition.

The breadsticks were packaged and pretty lame. Would like it better and could have been healthy if it was a whole wheat roll or something but I still ate them… Obvi.

All in all I really liked my first diet-to-go meal. I am skeptical about some of the upcoming meals but I won’t spoil the surprise.
