Diet Food Delivery – Advantages and Disadvantages

For more than 30 years, people on a diet have been signing up for diet food delivery services as a way to lose some extra baggage without too much thinking, calculating and planning. It saves them from trips to the grocery store, helps them avoid some unhealthy foods and products and the meals is delivered right to the doorstep. If you’ve found the company that is going to deliver you, for example, the best weight loss meals Singapore can offer, is it really worth it? What are the advantages and possible disadvantages of diet delivery services? 

In general, premade diet meals are delivered to your doorstep. The only thing you’ve got to do is to order your meals over the phone or online. The supplier does all the nutrition planning, calorie counting, measuring, weighing and preparing all of your meals and delivers them to your door. Basically, your diet plan is tailored to help you reduce your calorie intake or to prevent/maintain some medical condition. You can either get ready-to-eat meals or they can be supplied in kit form so that you can put them together and, usually, add some snacks on your own.

So, what are the benefits of having diet food delivered? Obviously, there is no or minimum shopping, which is both convenient and time saving. In addition, you cannot pick an unhealthy meal option, because you’re not the one that plans your meals. Usually, these programs offer online or phone consultations that help dieters through hard times such as birthdays, weddings, restaurants etc.

Nevertheless, there are some disadvantages of having your diet food delivered. First of all, that can be quite expensive. Back in the 90s, only celebrities could afford diet delivery programs, but nowadays they are more affordable. Also, since the diet meals are ready-made for you to eat them, you don’t learn anything about healthy foods, portion size and control and you don’t learn to cook healthy meals. These skills are crucial for maintaining ideal weight for life. Another disadvantage of diet delivery food plans is that they are designed for one person only, not for families.

All in all, I think that diet food delivery services are perfect for people who just don’t have enough time to focus on eating healthy and still they don’t want to ruin their health. By the time, you’ll be able to learn how much is enough and what foods should be on your plate and developing good eating habits is always an advantage.
