If the thought of eating vacuum-packed and frozen food has you queasy, consider The Fresh Diet, which delivers to your door three fresh meals and two snacks in a cute cooler.
The Fresh Diet follows the principles of the Zone Diet. Two-thirds of the plate should be good carbs, like fruit and veggies, and a third should be a low-fat protein. Add a dash of acceptable fat, such as olive oil, and you’re good to go.
A customer service rep can help you choose the plan and portions, but he or she won’t hold your hand when you’re pining for a sundae. Daily delivery is limited to certain zip codes. To find out which plan is available in your zip, enter it on the Web site. The Fresh Diet is about $28.99 to $44.99 a day, depending on special offers and selections. There are discounts for enrolling in multiple-week programs.
“It can be pricey,” acknowledges spokeswoman Kathleen Berzon. “But people also don’t have to shop, prep or measure. One woman decided that instead of a new wardrobe, she’d make an investment in her own health.” (thefreshdiet.com)
