Fresh Diet Update – 1 Year Later

It’s been a little over a year since I started the Fresh Diet. I do like the convenience of it. I go online, choose the days I want to receive meals, choose which items I want, and just wait for the cooler bag the night before. I had the meals delivered every day for 2 months. In those two months, I went from 140 lbs to 130 lbs. This includes working out 1 day a week for an hour. I am now getting the meals 1 day a week just to tide me over when I do not have anything in the fridge. There are many days when I wake and nothing is appealing and I don’t want cereal.

My diet is a lot different than my husband’s and my kids. I already have to cook each person geared to what they like, that I do not have time to make myself something. Fresh Diet gives me an option out. I think it is not a bad deal. I try to catch specials they run around the holidays to get a discount on the plans.

Fresh Diet Groupon

I know I haven’t updated my posts in a while. The food is still being delivered daily. I have finished my first 31 days and lost 5-6 lbs. I am very happy. The clothes are fitting a lot better.

I recently found a Groupon deal for the same $29 a day and I purchase 25 days worth of meals. It was very easy to contact Fresh Diet to add the 25 new days to my account. I was able to select meals right away for the new time period.

I realized that I do like the meals but the meals are beginning to repeat itself. I am seeing the same meals appear every 2 weeks. I know I should try a new dish sometimes but I like choosing meals I am familiar with. I have noticed a change in how I eat.

I haven’t been eating as well as I used to. I’m cheating more often. Meaning I go out to eat more often. The foods are not as tasty as I remember. I don’t think quality is an issue with Fresh Diet. I think it’s just me. The regularity of these meals are making my taste buds wilt. I think I might just suspend the meals for several weeks and start it back up later.

Day 14

Day 14 Fresh Diet Menu

 

 Breakfast: The burrito was not rolled up. It was a 1/4 slice of green tortilla that was topped with eggs, bell peppers and cheese. Though it was good, I thought it was more like a pizza then burrito.

Lunch: I had a late lunch, almost at 4 pm. The salad was alot. I thought it had too much mozzarella. I felt like it was nothing but cheese and pasta and not enough baby spinach. It filled me up fine.

Dinner: I had cheated a snacked on my 2 year old’s pizza. It was 1 slice. Then 1 hour later I had the dinner. It tasted okay. The grilled chicken was a lot thicker than usual. The sauce had a bit of spice. What I love are the portabellas which is in most of my meals. The asparagus was good but the stalks are not large, very thin.

Snacks: I skipped these snacks because I already had the pizza.

Overall: Today’s meal was average. Everything is edible thank goodness but these are not the foods I would normally eat. I am not a big salad fan for lunch nor would I each sandwiches for lunch. I am realizing I might have to change my eating habits after this trial diet is over. There are some foods that are really good for my body.

Day 13

Day 13 Fresh Diet

 

Breakfast: I love egg bakes! It’s my new favorite thing. I think it is easy to make too. I wish I have the ability to cook well. I do not have the patience. And I am the only eating these foods. My two kids are too young and my husband is picky beyond words.

Lunch: Lovely lunch. I felt like it was an English meal. The food was light yet filling. All I was missing was a pot of tea. Unfortunately my baby lettuce salad on the side included a little bug on the leaves. It just left me shuddering to think if there were any other bugs in it.

Dinner: Vegitarian? wow… those meatballs were the best I have ever tasted! It was super soft and moist. It just melted in my mouth.

Snack 1: The skewers were delicous. It was tough but it was tender. Just okay.

Snack 2: Did not eat last night. I have the peanut butter cheesecake from the night before.

Overall: Continually loving the meals. Especially the part where I don’t have to cook anything.

Day 12

Day 12

 

 Breakfast: I do not remember breakfast except scarfing it down in minutes. I was starving when I woke up.

Lunch: Skirt steak salad… chewy. Lettuce was wilting a bit. Had onions on salad that gave a kick… but was a bit too much of a kick.

Dinner: I went to Luby’s. So the turkey sausages are left for another time. Luby’s on the other hand… was plentiful and hit the spot for me.

Snack 1 and Snack 2: Have not yet been eaten.

Overall: Yes I cheated at dinner. i do feel like I need to cheat 1 day a week. When I know I’m on a diet, the diet itself won’t work. Sometimes cheating helps with progress. (or am I just deluding myself?)
