Best Diet I've ever been on!
I love dietlicious!
I've previously tried meal prepping myself which worked but I would always get soooo sick of what I was eating and ending up binging and putting my weight back on! I love the variety and flavours of most of the meals and the convenience and time saving of it. I get them delivered to my work place and they stay frozen all day until I put them away at night. I prefer them frozen so that i don't have to worry about the food wasting if unexpected plans come up. I lost 2 kg in my 5 day cleanse week and have dropped another 2 kg ...
Lost 4kgs in 2 weeks - Great food, good service & it works
Update: I have now been doing DL for 5 weeks: weight loss to date is 6.5kgs. I'm still enjoying it & i stand by my comments below. I'm not bored of the food. The food is clean (ie no packaged muesli bars or cereals) so its filling & no blood sugar slumps for me. There's nothing I have hated, but I def have my favourite meals. I haven't had any issues with the quality of the food which i see some other reviewers have. I unpack at night on the day of delivery.
I have been doing DL for 2.5 weeks now (17 days). I have been diligent in follo...
Dishonest company delivering rotten food.
I received a rotten tomato and called Dietlicious. I was promised that this issue wouldn't happen again.
The subsequent week, I received another rotten tomato. When I called again and spoke to the business owner, I was told that "I had too much time on my hands to be complaining about a rotten tomato".
I would absolutely avoid dealing with this dishonest company at all costs. It's more expensive than Lite N Easy, although I've never had an issue when ordering from Lite N Easy in the past.
It's just not worth wasting your money on a dishonest company which thrives on passive aggressive and dishonest customer service.
The Yellow Brick Road of Diet Advice/Guidance
Seriously, I've been a fan (of Dietlicious) for some time now and not that I don't research these matters myself but being time poor (who isn't), its just great to get the expert advice and guidance inherent in the Dietlicious approach, where you can simply choose & follow the easy (& yummy) progression through cleanse. Into a 1200 Cal Plan to get the kickstart we all need, & then simply maintain by eating dietlicious 3-4 days a week (you'll quickly find your favourites. SO MANY to choose from) and Voila Weight Loss Achieved & Maintained!!
WooHoo!! Loving it :)
Amazing flavours - I'll never cook again!
After trying my hardest to do my own healthy meal prep & follow various meal plans; I still found myself wavering from it due to lack of time, organisation, change of plans etc & I was finding it costly. I'm someone whose done a fitness body comp previously & am generally health conscious & even with that head start; I was finding it difficult & was becoming frustrated because my best intentions resulted in wavering from my plan & throwing out copious amounts of groceries that I'd forgotten about or not had the chance to cook.
I'm now onto m...y second week of Dietlicious & I'm just over the moon with the taste, quality, variety, customer service & the difference it has made to my life. The flavours are restaurant quality when you consider it's been made elsewhere, frozen & sent to you. Just having a portion controlled, prepared & delicious meal available has kept me on track & not made me feel like I'm missing out on anything. Everytime I heat up my food at work; I've had no less than 2 people come up each time to ask me what I'm eating & what smells so good. It isn't cheap but neither was going to the supermarket & I'm at least eating everything I pay for now not to mention the fuss free, low maintenance approach to healthy eating. Don't be turned off by it being frozen; they've put a lot of thought into how to re heat/finish off the dish (some take 6 mins in the oven etc) & the flavour is great. I also use YouFoodz which is all fresh & both options; frozen & fresh, are equally as good. I think Dietlicious definitely has a gourmet touch to their meals & you find yourself really enjoying the meals - not just enduring then like you might on any other diet or ready made food service. I'm someone who typically eats large portions and was worried I'd be hungry but I feel satisfied & because I'm training pretty intensely; I just supplement some meals with some SteamFresh veges or a cup of brown rice which you do anyway depending on what meal plan you're on. You can buy their sides too but I find it more affordable to get my own rice etc but will still but products that I would normally not make like their ratatouille side for e.g. I normally can't be bothered to write reviews but I read reviews before purchasing a product so thought I would also contribute. You won't be disappointed - give it a go. If you don't want portion controlled meals then try their Gourmet Dinner Service meals - same quality just not as health conscious. My hubby & I have used them before and loved them!
We don't usually get convenience meals but were given a voucher after a sickness in the family. We really loved all the meals, could happily eat them again and again.
For us it is way too expensive though, plus delivery cost, and I can't hang around all day waiting for delivery. However if I did not have to be careful with my food budget and could work out something with the deliveries, I would get these meals a LOT, better than a personal chef and so easy!!
The New Salads are EXCELLENT
I'm a fan of so many dishes on the menu..having eaten many of my faves for some time.. but I couldn't believe how good (& Large) the New Salads are.
The Chicken is exceptional.. the sauce.. the nuts..the Flavour.. The Freshness of the leaves..I needed a Bigger plate!.. Fantastic!! Lovem.. I'm hooked :) Keep'em coming Dietlicious!!
Even though they had a gluten free option, the food caused me problems..
I am gluten intolerant and ordered the 1200 calorie gluten free 5 day meal plan to try. I had to stop it after the 3rd day because the food was giving me constant flatulence and burping which is symptomatic for me of the presence of gluten or preservatives. It's a shame because the meals are tasty and the portion sizes are decent. I think the what may have bothered my gut was the heavy sauces on the dinner meals like the arabian beef and cinammon scented lamb. Overall this is definitely superior to Lite'n'easy and if you don't have any particular food intolerances then give it a try.
Delicious food, so convenient
I have been using GDS and Dietlicious for over two years and my husband and I absolutely love it. We just started the 1200 calories weekly meals again and don't get hungry, even though we are both over 6ft tall. My favourite are the curries, there is such a great variety you don't get sick of the food. Very happy with the customer service too, would recommend to anyone!
Meals are too small
I tried these meals to compare to Lite N Easy, I found the portions to be too small and you have a lot more cooking to do than Lite n Easy. I purchase them for the convenience of not having to cook when I am tired from work and in a hurry, not as a diet food. I usually had to have something else with the meals as I found I was still hungry after the meal. The meals are more expensive and there is no free delivery. They do taste better but it depends on the meals each one has some meals that are very good. The shepards pie dinner would not ev...en fill a mug, and while it would be good for a diet I do not want to spend more time looking for something else to eat. The containers are really weak, accidently dropped a frozen meal and the plastic base just shattered making it useless to eat.
Great food - considering they come prepaid
I think the thing that people get confused by is that - a chef is NOT in your home cooking a meal for you. It is pre made, packed and shipped to you. Its not going to taste like a 5 star restaurant...be realistic. On another note - I keep seeing reviews that Dietlicious portions are too small - well take a quick peek at the name of the company? D.I.E.T.L.I.C.I.O.U.S - key word diet, they only provide you with what you need.
I trialled the 10 day detox and it was amazing - great food, great results.
Key thing I wanted to get across in this review - be realistic.
Fresh. Tasty. Easy!
My partner and I needed something to kick start our healthy eating, so tried Lite n Easy. After a few weeks unfortunately we grew tired of cardboard meals. I also found the quality of the food lacking.
Flash forward a month and I discovered Dietlicious, we won't be looking back!
Food quality is poles apart from Lite n Easy- far far superior.
We are now on our second week of the Dietlicious Cleanse, with another delivery of seven days worth of dinners due to arrive today.
Dietlicious is helping me learn about portion size, cleansing...my system and give it the much earned break from gluten, wheat and other nasties. Plus- The planning and preparing, everything is done for you- and the thing I love that unlike Lite N Easy there are more cooking options- e.g. you can choose to bake your fish, steam your veggies etc, and give the microwave a well earned break!
Awful and watery
After weeks of saving up to be able to buy and try out a 10 day menu i must say i dont agree with the reviews. I found the food watery and it gave me very bad indigestion. After writing to the company i found that they were very unsympathetic and uninterested in what i had to say. It wss less than 48hrs that ive had the product and i regret every minute of it.
Very watery and a bit smelly
This service is more expensive than lite n easy but the food is so much better. Every ingredient in the packages is exactly what you'd use at home. It's a diet for foodies.
It's also not so heavy on the carbs as Lite N Easy is.
They also have another service called Gourmet Dinner Service so you can order man/family meals with the dietlicious food.
Sometimes the veggie packs were frozen and didn't defrost well
Best Healthly Eating Ever
I too am tired of all the preservatives in diet food. Salt content and all the numbers on the packets that are just not good for you. As a person with a vision impairment I have found Dietlicious food easy to manage and cook and it tastes fantastic.
I often do the cleanse and the 1200 menu plans. I even had food delivered for christmas. My family members had never tried it and they all loved the food.
I love this food it's so healthy and clean and I have wonderful results with weight loss and energy levels. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to try the healthy option. I always feel like I have my own personal chef in my kitchen.
It's certainly a dining out experience.everynight.
Gourmet Food on a Diet
I started looking this year for a company to provide me with low-fat low calorie dinners. I tried Lite n'Easy, and their food isn't too bad - but it's typical microwave dinner stuff, which is good when you're in a rush and don't want to do any cooking. But I could see myself getting sick of it fairly quickly.
So I searched for gourmet diet food and I found this site. I've tried them for around a month now, and the food is amazing. Seriously. It's like you aren't on a diet. It's different to Lite N'Easy in that you often have to just ...quickly heat something up in the oven or a pan - but this makes it taste better (than microwaved food). It is amazingly yummy. You can buy sides like vegetables, but I tend to just get the mains and add my own greens, as it's fresher. On their website they do full meal plans as well. That wasn't what I was looking for, as I'm happy enough doing my own breakfasts and lunches - but they look yummy as well. It's slightly more expensive than Lite n'Easy - but the quality of the food is amazing. It's true gourmet diet food. The food is amazing. It's a little more work than a simple microwave dinner - but not much, and it tastes much better.
