Diet-To-Go offers tasty, chef-prepared, low-calorie meals designed by a team of professional chefs, nutritionists, dietitians, and certified health coaches. The meals are carefully crafted to promote weight loss, prevent cravings between meals, and improve overall health. They are available within 4 meal plans – Balance, Balance-Diabetes, Carb30, and Vegetarian – each one created with different nutritional needs and preferences in mind. In this quick overview, we provide key information about each of the 4 types of Diet-To-Go meals, allowing you to easily determine which type best suits your unique needs.
According to Epicurious, Balance meals are the tastiest weight loss meals available on the market. They are nutritionally balanced, calorie- and portion-controlled, and good for your heart due to the low content of sodium, carbohydrates, cholesterol, and fat. The meals do not contain MSG or any artificial additives or preservatives. They are best suited for individuals who want to lose weight by limiting their daily calorie intake to 1,200 or 1,600 calories per day. Balance breakfasts, lunches, and dinners mostly focus on poultry, fish and seafood, and healthy veggies and grains. Depending on your preferences, you can choose to receive meals with or without seafood.
Meals available with the Balance-Diabetes plan are suitable for managing pre-diabetes and preventing type-2 diabetes. They are created in accordance with the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association and contain limited amounts of carbs and fat. Just like Balance meals, they are heart-healthy, with the additional benefit of helping you naturally control your blood sugar levels. While particularly suitable for pre-diabetics and diabetics, Balance-Diabetes meals can suit the needs of dieters who need to reduce the amount of fat and sugar and other carbs in their diet.
Carb30 meals are best suited for individuals whose weight gain is primarily related to excessive carb intake. They are created in accordance with the rules of carb-restricted, Atkins-style diets. If you enjoy Carb30 breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, without any snacks in between, your daily carb intake is limited to only 30 net carbs a day. Due to the limited carb content, Carb30 meals contain greater amounts of fat coming from meat, eggs, and dairy products. In order to achieve your desired results, you need to strictly follow the program and avoid eating fruit, sugary food, and pastry.
Vegetarian meals are Balance meals that are transformed to suit the needs of vegetarians. Thus, they rely on balanced nutrition, portion control, and reduced sodium, carb, and fat content, but instead of meat and fish, the main protein sources in these meals are eggs, dairy, legumes, and occasionally soy.
No matter which type of Diet-To-Go meals you choose, you get to try out 75 different meals over the course of 5 weeks. Every week, there are 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, and 5 dinners on the menu. After week 5, the meals are repeated, starting with the meals served during week 1.
