Heard from a friend that the meals provided by Diet to Go are really healthy and fresh in addition to just plain tasting good.
You might want to give them a look as they are always running a special so that if it is your first time ordering, you get a different offer or discount.
Guess if you live alone, it would be very helpful to have portion controlled food available….save a lot on wasted food. Hambone, my dog might not care for that arrangement, but it is becoming very interesting to me!
Diet-to-Go: The Calorie Lab Review
Great Video Review of A Weeks Worth of Food. The Reviewer ordered a 1200 a day calorie Vegetarian Diet. Vegetarian isn’t required, Diet to Go also has meats and animal protein and Diary available……no need to go on a diet and become a vegetarian at the same time.
How does protein affect blood sugar control? It is digested more slowly than carbohydrates therefore it doesn’t tend to cause high spikes in your blood sugar. Fat is also in this category.
However, it is better to have a mix of protein, fat and carbohydrate in every meal. You need the carbs for quick energy, the protein for slower digestion to keep feeding you energy and VERY IMPORTANT keep you from feeling those hunger pains. Fat is also digested more slowly and you need some fat each day for two reasons, first to control blood sugar by slower digestion and second…your brain cells contain fat so you need to feed it!
The secret to all of this eating is to establish a daily calorie intake, decide on menus for the day, divide up your intake into three meals and two snacks. Include protein, fat and carbohydrates in all of them while staying within your calorie allocation.
Here is a suggestions to help out with your dieting. Look to the right sidebar under Carolyn Recommends there is a very inexpensive booklet that is small enough to take with with you . It is great for looking up food and finding out what a serving is and how many calories! It deals in exchanges but all an exchange does is list the serving size and calories for different foods and often groups foods into categories.
Below is a link to a company that prepares fresh meals and ships them to you, but they do have a very handy calculator that you can use for free to help you decide how much you can eat and still lose weight.
