I've had many inquiries from readers about the best way to lose weight when you would rather not cook. One good option for keeping your diet on track when you are short on time or don't like to cook is a meal delivery service. For many the convenience of having healthy fully prepared meals delivered right to your door is hard to beat.
One such service, Diet-to-Go (affiliate link), makes healthy eating both easy and affordable with an impressive selection of ready-to-eat portion-controlled meals that let you enjoy foods you love while sticking to your plan.
What is Diet-to-Go?
Most people today are pulled in so many directions that cooking and eating healthy often take a backseat to other obligations.
Diet-to-Go (affiliate link), specializes in delivering healthy, fully cooked restaurant-quality meals directly to your door. They’re perfect for those who don’t want to think about what’s for dinner, are short on time and want to eat something healthier than take out or fast food.
The pre-portioned meals with dietitian-approved ingredients are designed to help people save time and eat well. No worrying about meal planning, shopping, cooking, and clean-up.
How Does Diet-to-Go Work?

The Benefits of Diet to Go Meal Delivery
Diet-to-Go meals are cooked and flash-frozen so they require no preparation, except for reheating. This saves you the time and energy of meal planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning up.
While all meals are pre-planned, you can choose from the four different types of plans and then customize the menu within the plan (for example, if you have certain allergies or don't care for seafood).
One of the biggest misconceptions when you’re trying to lose weight is that you can’t eat any foods that taste good. Things like burgers, pasta and pancakes are often on the "do not eat" list. When it comes to Diet-to-Go, this isn't the case.
Diet-to-Go meals are made fresh each week, and the quality of the food is high. Nothing is overly seasoned, so customers can add their own additional seasoning if they prefer.
For breakfast, the Egg and Broccoli Pie is a perennial favorite. Not only is it filling and a healthy way to start your day, but it’s also delicious. It's the perfect option for those mornings when you have time to sit down and enjoy a proper breakfast.
For lunch, the Tuna Meltovers is a yummy choice. And when dinnertime rolls around, the Chicken Cacciatore is one dish you'll love to have. There won't be any need to head to your favorite Italian restaurant because you can have this dish right at home!

How Much Does Diet-to-Go Cost?
The price you pay is going to depend on how many meals you choose to receive. You may choose 5 or 7 days per week and either two or 3 meals per day. Starting prices start at $8-10/meal. Not Cheap; but not crazy when you consider the cost of take out and/or eating out.
Diet to Go Reviews
What we tasted: For each plan we looked for a white-meat main dish. Diet to Go offered a Thai turkey tenderloin over rice with green beans and grape tomatoes. "The turkey was tender, and the veggies nice and crisp like they never are but should be," said one editor. ~ Epicurious
"I've been receiving the meals for about a month now. The cost came in under what I would typically pay for meals on the go, delivery is convenient and it was easy to pause when I was planning to be away for a week. The food is tasty and filling. I haven't weighed myself since I started but I feel better and smaller!" ~ Lori W.
"Overall great experience and support available! The meals are very tasty, full of flavor and super easy for my busy lifestyle, literally grab-and-go, just microwave (affiliate link)! Super simple to follow and stay on track above all budget friendly for this single mom on the go!" ~ Marguerite L.
"Diet to Go is a big time saver for me! I work 50-60 hrs a week so having them meal prep and deliver to my house twice a week is just amazing. The food is so good and fresh and the meals aren't repetitive so you can enjoy a little of everything." ~ Melissa R.
