An alternative to conventional diets is provided by diet food delivery plans that are created by diet companies to take out much of the hard work and hassle of dieting.
Explaining the Concept
First of all, what do we mean by meal replacement diet home delivery programs and what are they? Well these are specialist home delivered diets provided by certain companies made up of a selection of meals that are processed, can be pre-packaged and delivered to the home of the customer.
This provides a very convenient way to diet because it negates the need to have to go to the store to buy the kind of groceries that would fit in with a conventional diet. It also removes the need to weigh and measure portion sizes, count calories or even cook the food as it all comes ready to serve up after some simple preparation like placing in the microwave.
This is almost like fast food weight loss and while it will never replace good, healthy home cooked meals that have been carefully prepared, measured and served, it does fill the gap for busy people who simply do not have time to mess around with mainstream diet plans. So what do you get when you have a diet delivered to your door?
Well, in the case of a company like Nutrisystem, which is probably the biggest company that provides this type of dieting plan, you literally get all your food for a month in a box. What's in there comprises three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner with dessert) plus protein shakes and two daily snacks that you can eat between meals.
The idea behind this is that you just eat what they give you and if you choose, nothing else. You can also add some grocery store items they tell you about. Because the meals are designed to be low calorie while high in nutritional value, low in high GI carbs and saturated fats, they will help you lose weight.
In fact, many thousands of customers will attest to this very formula working for them as this system really does work for those that stick to it. Of course, you can't compare these kinds of meals to real home cooked meals because you will never get that kind of quality in a packet!
But for what it is, this kind of dieting suits busy people and those who simply cannot be bothered with a normal weight loss diet. So if you are one of these and you like the idea of this level of simplicity and convenience, then it could very well be exactly what you are looking for.
