When it comes to weight management and food programs that are going to help you lose weight it looks like a two-horse race with Nutrisystem and Jenny Craig. These two have the biggest advertising budgets, but if you want something with flavor and does a great job with caloric and diet control there are some much better alternatives out there.
If you have tried Nutrisystem or Jenny Craig, you will wish that they spent more on creating great food and less on advertising. The key to weight loss with these two lines is that the poor taste of the food leads you to eat less. Two great new ways to control you diet are Chefs Diet™ and ON Food. Both of these food systems have amazing food and they both have an assortment of options to best suit your specific needs.
Chefs Diet™ will deliver daily three balanced gourmet meals and two snacks in an insulated cooler. It will be waiting at your door every morning. While not controlled by calories, Chefs Diet™ is more about portion control. The thing you will find that the high quality of the food will begin to fill you up and you will crave less and less food as you continue with the program. The food is also prepared and served in such a way that it enables the body to maximize its metabolism and stabilize blood sugar levels which in turn will result in optimal weight loss. You will quickly realize how amazing this program is, great tasting food and perfectly prepared portions eliminates all of the effort that normally goes into your everyday dietary needs.
Chefs Diet™ also has a number of different options depending on your needs and lifestyles. The premium daily is the standard package that is for your everyday lifestyle, but they also have packages tailored to kids as well as kosher, vegetarian, hearth healthy and diabetic diets. Each menu has been developed to deliver a 40/30/30 balanced meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner and your two snacks. That is a combination of 40% complex carbohydrates, 30% proteins and 30% beneficial fats, which is the perfect breakdown for your body. You certainly will not be missing out on flavorful food as you can find yourself enjoying pan seared sea scallops, roasted turkey, belgian waffle and grilled rack of baby lamb just to name a few items on the Chefs Diet™ menu.
The average person can lose approximately 8 to 10 pounds during the first month and then 6 to 8 pounds each additional month they stay with Chefs Diet™. It is a great program to make sure you eat healthy, but it is also a nice way to learn how to create a better diet for yourself if you only do the Chefs Diet™ for a short period of time.
ON Food is a little different, it is just as simple, but this one is designed to take all the guess work out of what you’re eating daily when it comes to calories and all you have to do is grab a box and go.
Each box of ON Food comes with four meals, one snack bar and a package of flavored powder that will provide all of your daily vitamins and minerals. The key here is that the boxes are created so that no matter your current weight, needs or diet, you can get what you need as they have created three sizes. The three versions are 1,200, 1,600 and 2,000 calories. As long as you stick to your box, you will know exactly how many calories you are consuming everyday. In each box you will also be getting an optimal balance of macro and micro nutrients; including protein, carbohydrates, fiber, omega-3 and 25 vitamins and minerals.
ON Food meals are the perfect on-the-go meal. The containers can be stored at room temperature for up to 18 months and the meals can be eaten hot or cold. The one thing you will notice about ON Food is that despite the packaging, this food tastes very fresh as well as flavorful. They keep the freshness and flavor in by using "retort" bowl technology
which locks in the freshness and amazingly ON Food contains no preservatives. All you have to do is pull of the plastic cap and remove the metal lid and your ON Food is ready to go either at room temperature or pop it in the microwave and in 60-90 seconds you have a meal.
The concept is really going to change the way people eat, but the quality of the food is what really sets ON Food apart. For breakfast they have a variety of oatmeal flavors and they really worked to get oatmeal that has a great texture to it and one bowl and you will be ready to start your day. For lunch and dinner ON Food has a wide ranging menu, but two of these items really stood out. I was really shocked when I tasted the Penne with Beef Bolognese, I was expecting a typical flavorless pasta and sauce dish, but this was not the case. The sauce was rich and thick, tasted better than the pasta I make on my own stove. The Southwestern Style Chicken Corn Chowder is really hearty dish that has a really nice subtle heat to it. In addition the chicken and corn really kept a great fresh texture and it tasted as fresh as the day it was packaged.
There are a number of options available to help you with you meet your dietary goals, but finding one that also tastes great can be a challenge. Don't just jump into the first product that you see and always remember if it doesn't taste good, you probably are going to cheat anyways, so don't waste your time on dollars on an inferior product.
