Looking for diet delivery programs? Wondering just how they work? Or are you wondering if they actually DO work?

Diet food delivery services are exploding across North America. People are starting to recognize that having their meals prepared for them is an easy, affordable – and delicious – way to lose weight.

And you have more options than ever. You can find everything from gourmet, chef-prepared fare (think Chicken Cordon Bleu, Sirloin Steak or Turkey with Cranberry Chutney Sauce and Rosemary potatoes) to lip-smacking down-home comfort food (how about macaroni and cheese, pizza or a fudge brownie?)

While you do have lots of options, there are still some services that offer better value than others.

Here are a few things to know about diet delivery programs before you decide on the best one for you:

First of all, these programs come in all shapes and sizes. There are programs that are calorie-controlled, carb-controlled, low glycemic, low sodium or even diabetic-friendly.

There are services that let you get breakfast, lunch and dinner all 7 days of the week. There are others that offer 5 days of just lunches and dinners (so you can take the weekends off and make your own breakfast). Some programs give you desserts, snacks and even condiments so you never have to go grocery shopping at all. Some require you to prepare your own dinner or breakfast.

The real question to ask first is what are your preferences?

For example, do you have special dietary needs (like low carbs or vegetarian meals)? Do you want your meals prepared fresh and never frozen? Do you want every meal shipped to you so you never have to shop at all – or do you want to take weekend off?

Start by examining your lifestyle and preferences. Then go looking for a diet food delivery program.

Enjoy delicious low carb food without the hassle. We’ll cook the food, you’ll lose the weight. Find out how!

Also, it helps to get really honest here. Good intentions never helped anyone lose a pound. You may think you’ll be ok on a simple, affordable meal delivery plan. But are you the kind of person who doesn’t do well when they feel deprived? Would you do better to spend a bit more and get the gourmet, restaurant-quality meals?

By knowing what you want before you start shopping, you’re more likely to find a plan that you’ll love and stick to it.

Most delivery programs will have a website with information on their meals, how to order, nutritional facts, and even before and after pictures of people who have lost weight using their services.


Many programs will require you to order 1 month up to 3 months at a time. This makes sense since it will usually take at least a month to see decent results with any weight loss program. However if you search around a bit you can find a few that do weekly orders as well.

When you order you’ll usually receive your food in 3 – 4 business days or at the start of the next week (i.e. if deliveries are usually made every Monday).

Most services do not require you to be home to accept delivery of your food. Many use special sealed, cooling packing boxes to ensure your food stays fresh. Once you receive your food, you just put it in the fridge or freezer. There will probably be heating instructions on each container so when you go to eat you just follow the instructions. It’s really simple.

If you’re near a major city you can often find several local diet meal delivery programs. However these can be pricey since they’re smaller and have less clients. They also often charge for shipping. However the advantage is that they may offer very specific, hard-to-find types of meals (i.e. raw food cuisine, vegan meals, etc.)

There are other nationwide delivery programs that deliver pretty much anywhere in the continental U.S. These programs have a much larger client base so prices tend to be lower and you can generally get more value for your money.

Whichever service you choose, remember to look for a satisfaction guarantee (most of the big companies do offer this) and lots of testimonials of people who are satisfied with their service (so you know just how well it works).
