How to Choose Foods on a Pre-Packaged Diet Menu

Aug 11, 2008
A pre-packaged diet does not have to be a regimented series of meals, dictated to you by a faceless corporation. In most cases, you are given the opportunity to select your foods from among dozens of choices. In order to decide, you need to give your choices some thought.

With the Nutrasystem diet, you order your food in 28-day cycles. There are good and bad aspects to this feature. If you want to choose your foods and then not think about it again for awhile, you will like it. However, once you order you are stuck with your choices until the next ordering cycle.

If you would rather consider your choices based on how you are feeling and what you are doing each week, Jenny Craig or Deliciously Yours might work better. You get their foods every week.

On the Nutrasystem diet, you have over 120 foods from which to make your selections. It takes time, but the best way to decide is to go to their website and click on every meal for more information. You will be able to get a description, a nutrition and ingredient label, and a full-color picture of the prepared meal.

Jenny Craig has basically the same type of set-up. It is just as easy to look at their menu; in fact their website gives the picture right on the webpage. That way you do not have to click on a link to see it. If you want the full details, though, you still have to go to another page.

Deliciously Yours from eDiets is similar in that it is a diet meal delivery service. You get to choose from a wide variety of foods for meals that will be made up by chefs and delivered to your door each week. The foods are freshly made, unlike those of Jenny Craig or Nutrasystem diets. All you need to do is to go on the website and choose from the menu.

One way to sort out which meals you want to get is by what foods are most like the foods the rest of your family will be eating. If your pre-packaged meals are similar to your loved ones' dinners, you will not be as tempted to try theirs instead of eating yours.

For example, if your family has pizza every Saturday night, choose one of the diets' pizza entrees to have at the same time. If a birthday party is coming up, order a diet cake dessert to have while the others have birthday cake. They can have their treat while you have yours.

Choosing your foods is also a matter of selecting the best pre-packaged diet for you. When you have figured out whether you like Jenny Craig, Nutrasystem, Deliciously Yours, or some other diet the best, you can start to pick out the individual foods you like from their menus.
