I have to say I have been on many diets, but so far the meal plans are great! It's food I eat regularly, so it doesn't really feel like I am dieting. I am so used to having to but all new food, so this is GREAT! It's easy to understand, so I think I am good to go. I picked 5 meals per day because I am up so early I usually have a snack, then eat breakfast later when my baby takes a nap. Then I have a snack after dinner when the baby is in bed. Thanks again! -- Erica M
So, I've been using the meals planner again for the last 3 days. I love eating this way. I completed my meals for the next 2 weeks on Wednesday, printed the shopping list and went shopping that morning. -- Laura A
I lost 9lbs this week!! I have been following the meal plans and keeping within my calorie range. I have always exercised 6 days a week but really had a tough time with controlling my diet. I guess this is working!! -- Maegen P
Looking over the meal plans they looked great. I am not a cook by any means but the way it is all laid out makes it looks like I should have no problem keeping up with it. I love the cooking directions and ingredient layout it makes it very understandable. The calorie intake seems a little high for me but then again I am eating hardly anything now so perhaps that is right. I have never been one to count calories so it may not be high I just feel I don't do much physical activity right now. I go shopping once every 2 weeks, should I change that to accommodate this change I am making? Also, when following the plan am I able to stray off and have other food or should i strictly stick to the plan? I see the portion part which is awesome I like how I can click that and get less if I feel perhaps I haven't been as active as I would like. I would like to go shopping tonight to pick up the food so i can start my new life :) -- Tony R
I know what to eat, and I love the plans on the site. They don't require a lot of time, taste good, and are healthy. I decided to do some measurements and I'm at least getting smaller, that makes me pretty happy! -- Vy-Dana
Very excited, I checked the scale today for the first time and I lost 3 pounds. It's been over a year since I have been able to loose any weight so this is fantastic. Tomorrows a holiday, but I still plan to stick to the eating habits the program has provided. Since I have seen results it's given me an incentive to be careful. I was able to wear a pair of slacks today that I haven't been able to fit into for almost 6 months, and they are now comfortable. -- Debra B
I feel great, never hungry, the food is plentiful and recipes delicious. I feel energized. -- Gabriella H
I really like the portioner and all the different meal choices. It makes staying on the plan so much easier! -- Kira M
I like your food choices for me. It is real food! I feel stronger, and I didn't write down my measurements but I feel smaller. -- Cheryl W
Finally realized that eating the right food is more a science with lots of discipline which will pay dividends in the long run. -- Larsen D
I really like the convenience of not having to plan meals and make a grocery list - "my meal plan" does all that for me. Also, I continue to be amazed at how tasty the food is. -- Nancy T
I was 60.2kg last week, and today I was 58.6kg. Not sure whether that's just natural variation or a kick-start! But, I did follow the food plan. -- Tamara G
