    Default First week of Diet-To-Go

    I'm glad that outfit comes with a mask, 'cause frankly I don't want to know who it is. (Can you imagine if that was your boss?)

    --------------
    So I tried my first week of Diet-To-Go meals, veggie 1200 calorie plan. I get to pick up meals locally so it's convenient. Not bad. The price is the best I could find, and the meals seem fresh and are EXTREMELY convenient which I love.

    I never have to worry when I get hungry, as a preplanned meal is just a trip to the fridge away. Psychologically this is quite comforting knowledge. Meals take 0-40 seconds to prep, because many can be eaten cold with your hands. Perfect for this lazy dish washing adverse bastard!

    The quality reminds me a little of better tasting cafeteria or hospitable food except with fresher veggies. It sounds negative, but it's not really. I think actual hospitable food pretty good for what it is. I'm just used to a lot of ethnic food, spicy and even pungent dishes, and eating out a lot. I have no complaints about the food, I'm just not raving about it either. Meals come with nutritional info.

    If I needed to for health reasons, i could definitely stick to this.

    If I don't lose weight in another week, I'll probably try another company or else just go back to my habits. In the meanwhile, I'm learning a lot about portion control. 1200 calories is REALLY LITTLE! I eat WAY more than 1200 calories normally I think and I don't even drink a lot of coffee drinks or junk food. I also don't think I eat an inordinate amount of food for my age and gender either -- just the 'average' portion size. If you go out and eat, you'll probably get 3x the portions of any meals I'm getting.

    How long have you been on it? It can take a while to lose weight. 1200 calories a day is a total starvation diet... 2000 is a starvation diet, too, for anyone over ~5' tall and weighing more than 95lbs.

    That said, I don't know what my daily intake is. Over the last couple weeks my primary source of food has been the deli across from my office, which is like 7-something a day (food plus vitamin water), a bottle of orange juice, a couple of water, and some other random snacks. I've sort-of given up on cooking...

    On the weekend, though, I eat stuff that'll kill me. #1, animal style, no tomatoes or lettuce, fries well done... KFC for lunch today. Those alone should make up for the lack of weekly intake, except that I actually exercised a bit both days.

    I've been on it for just a week so far. I think I'm actually eating more on the plan than on my own. Well, I certainly eat more often which is supposedly what you're supposed to do. Some of the meals are not filling so I bought 100 calorie snack packs, which are so handy. All about portion control! So I'm pretty sure I'm getting at least 1500 calories a day.

    And animal style! In-N-Out Burgers make me feel guiltless, they are so light and natural tasting. But yeah, that extra sauce might get to you. That's funny -- I also ate KFC the other day. I blame it on my brother who has a horrible 4000+ calories a day diet consisting of beer, take out, fast food, soda, and what he refers to as 'good hooch' (he's kinda an alkie)

    Deli food has lots of hidden calories especially with the big overfilled sammiches. You wouldn't think so, but with a long-hour office lifestyle and minimal exercise -- man, I gained at least 2 dress sizes under 6 months just from eating at the delis and coffee shops around work.

    My bro, btw is going to try the low-carb -- meaning high meat -- plan from the same company. It'll save on eating out on the long run. I'll post what those meals are like.

    Personally, I'm a little suspect about mass prepared meat dishes and putting 3days worth of cooked meat dishes in the fridge. But, we'll see!

    I generally avoid the things with bread. A BLT wrap with no dressing or mayo is my usual standby, and I often eat the special (like a barbecue meat sandwich). Again, this is my only meal of the day with yogurt and drinks as the remainder of my diet.

    I love In-N-Out, but I try to only indulge in it every couple weeks or less. It's not like the usual burger, but it still is if you eat a lot of them. Everything in moderation.

    ^^ It's offiicial, I have officially gained weight on this meal delivery Now I'm having second thoughts about this whole 'low carb' thing. The veggie diet is very high carb, lots of grains and even white bread. It's also partially my fault as I'm eating more often and more regularly thanks to the plan (which I guess is a good thing).

    Wolf, have you tried breaking food up into smaller meals throughout the day? That's supposed to help speed up metabolism. It will also keep you full.
