How To Store Your Pre-Packaged Diet Foods

Aug 12, 2008
You will get your pre-packaged diet foods in anywhere from a week's to a month's supply. After you receive your packages, you will have to find a way to store your foods. The storage methods are different for the various diets.

1. Refrigeration may or may not be necessary. Diet plans like Nutrasystem do not have refrigerated meals at all. Jenny Direct has many meals that are have a long shelf life at room temperature. Medifast meals are also shelf-friendly with no refrigeration needed. Deliciously Yours, from eDiets, delivers freshly made foods that do need refrigeration.

2. The freezer is sometimes used. While Nutrasystem foods and Medifast meal replacements are never frozen, some diet foods are. There are some Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers meals that you can buy frozen and heat in the microwave.

3. You might want to organize your foods by meal types. The Nutrasystem packaging is color-coded so that all the main meals are the same color; all the snacks are the same color, and so on. Jenny Direct meals can also be sorted by meal type and put into your cupboard or pantry.

If you buy frozen Jenny Craig meals, it might be more difficult to keep them organized. The Deliciously Yours foods only come by the week, so there is little need to organize them.

4. Set aside a particular part of your cabinets, pantry, refrigerator, or freezer just for your diet foods. Put your Nutrasystem, Jenny Direct, Medifast, or Deliciously Yours foods in certain places where you will go to look for them. You will be less likely to stumble onto something unhealthier.

5. If more that one person is on the diet, keep their foods separate. This is especially important with the diets like Jenny Craig, Nutrasystem, and Medifast that come in a large supply. Getting your foods all mixed in together defeats the purpose of having an individualized plan. Sometimes it is best to put the different people's foods in totally separate parts of the kitchen.

6. When you get a new supply of food, pull the old supply to the front. This is particularly important with weekly fresh food diets like Deliciously Yours, which may have a shorter shelf life. However, Nutrasystem and Jenny Direct foods can get out of date as well, especially if they are constantly being shoved to the back of the cabinet.

When you put away your pre-packaged diet foods, you are setting yourself up for failure or success. Try to think about the best way to store your supplies, no matter what diet you are on. The Nutrasystem, Jenny Direct, Medifast, and Deliciously Yours diets all need to be stored correctly.
