Thinking about trying a diet delivery service? Wondering which one is best?
Diet food delivery programs are exploding in popularity - so much so that even celebrities will now admit to using them to slim down.
While you have a lot of great options out there, you need to know a few things first in order to find the best service for you and get the most for your money.
With that in mind, here are 3 things you need to know in order to find the one diet delivery service that will give you the best weight loss results!
#1 Know Your Budget
You can find diet delivery services that range from $10 a day up to $60 a day. Obviously the quality of food that you get with these services is going to be quite different.
For example, you'll probably get more of a meal replacement package diet program (shakes, bars, pastas, lite entrees) for $10.
At around the $20 - $30 level, you can get delicious meals that are made fresh, then frozen and shipped to you once a week.
And at $50 - 60 a day, you'll get gourmet, chef-prepared meals with snacks and desserts delivered daily to your home with all the fixings (including gluten-free or dairy free options if you want).
So you have some great options. However, you need to know your budget before you can find the best service for you.
Decide what you want to spend ahead of time, so you don't waste time looking at services that are not in your price range.
What's a good rule of thumb? Most people spend about $20 - $30 a day on food anyways - and more if they eat out at restaurants. So if you can get a plan around that range, you're doing well - and you might even save money!
#2 What's Your "Diet Style"?
For example, do you lose weight best on a low carb plan - or a low fat? Do you need a plan that includes treats or snacks so you don't feel deprived?
Are gourmet, chef-prepared meals important to you? Or do you just want to get it over and done - and lose weight with a simple, "grab-and-go" style meals?
Everyone has a different style - which is what makes diet delivery so great since you can customize it to your lifestyle (and not the other way around).
#3 How Flexible Do You Need Your Program To Be?
You have a range of options here as well. For example, the best delivery services do NOT lock you into a long term contract.
And they are flexible - allowing you to customize your meals (within reason) to your personal likes and dislikes. Look for a plan that will let you swap out meals easily online - without an extra charge.
The best plans will also usually be flexible with other things like how many days you want to receive your meals (5 or 7 days) and how many meals a day you want(i.e. breakfast, dinner and lunch or just lunch and dinner).
While there are both large, nationwide diet delivery services and small local services, I find that you tend to get more options with nationwide services. Since they are so large, they have the resources to offer you better value for the money.
So those are 3 things you need to know in order to find the best diet delivery service for you.
No matter which service you decide on, make sure to take your time and research your options. And then relax - it's time to enjoy losing weight and letting someone ELSE make the meals for you!
