The Fresh Diet Review: A Week Later!

REVIEWS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | | March 23, 2012 at 11:49 am

Hands down, this was one of the best things I have reviewed, well except for Atlantis Resort, or my Carnival Cruise, but you get what I mean. A week later I am even more impressed that I was when I started. If you read my post earlier on The Fresh Diet you would have known that for one week I was reviewing The Fresh Diet and here is what I found.

Why yes, that flower came with the meal!

What I loved:

  • The portions were perfect. They looked small but really were not so.
  • The freshness oozed out, I could seriously tell the ingredients for most and to me being able to recognize that was important
  • No weird colorings. It felt natural to see things not crazy colored (seriously some of the food in supermarkets want to make me to gag).
  • The seafood rocks. It has happened on more than one occasion that my husband has eyed my fish. I have had Cod, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Crab, scallops and more – and people we are not talking itty-bitty pieces but big enough to fill this mama.
  • Presentation for the most part was appealing.
  • The re-heatable containers save me time.
  • The meals are flavorful.
  • The no-guessing sized portions make it easy for me.
  • The selection of the meals is pretty amazing
  • Ordering is easy peasy
  • It has changed how I eat. I ate a regular portion of my food today and I really felt bloated and that it was too much. It has made me view my portions differently.
  • The desserts and appetizers were out of this world.

What I loved not so much:

  • I now have a huge stack of those containers and though I plan to reuse them, I would rather not have to deal with so many.
  • There was only one meal that was less than appetizing to look at (I did not eat it because I could not bring myself to) and that was the oatmeal with bananas. It is never a good idea to have bananas precut in your meal, clue: they turn a yucky color.
  • I feel guilty if I eat out. I guess I can’t blame the system for this but it does not tend to support any meals eaten out (whether at a restaurant or friend’s place).
  • I miss cooking. While on the diet makes it easier for me, and I normally cook for the rest of the family, I will admit to missing cooking.
  • I miss my spice. Meals are flavorful but I periodically need a does of spice, I can’t help it – it is who I am.
It is pricey to be ongoing but  I really feel it is worth every single cent. In fact I am now looking at doing the system again, on my own cost, yeah that is how much they impressed me. Right now they have a deal so you may want to check it out.
