There are positives and negatives to having your gourmet diet food delivered. The positives: the meals come right to your door; all your meals are prepared in advance, so there is no need for spending hours in the kitchen; no need to worry about counting calories, because the food portions have already been pre-calculated and catered just to your needs. Clean up is always a breeze! All you have to do is just toss the containers away when you are finished. Another positive benefit is that you will get 5 to 6 nutritionally-balanced meals, depending upon delivery service. This is an easy way to get all the nutrition your body needs. They will usually have an exercise program to go along with your meal plan.


The negatives: because your meals are prepared in advance, with some gourmet diet deliveries, you may lose out on fresh foods, unless you add a fresh side salad with your meal. Most foods are prepared for shelf life, so there are no options for frozen foods. On occasions there will be exceptions like with Jenny Direct, you can go into a local office and get some of their frozen desserts and meal plans. Another negative is that you don't have the option to season your food in the manner you would like. Sometimes a few seasonings can be added after you heat your meal, but you are limited. Another negative side to watch for is if you are looking for a good meal plan on the Internet. Make sure they service your area. Diet delivery services such as Gourmet On The Go, only delivers in Atlanta, Georgia. Just beware that not all gourmet diet plans deliver all over the US.
