Quick Background on Diet-to-Go
Diet-to-Go was founded in 1991 in the Washington, D.C. area with the goal of providing customers with healthy meals that were convenient and took the thinking out of losing weight. To this day, its staff is devoted to providing busy, on-the-go people with meals that not only help them lose weight, but taste good too, so that reaching weight loss goals is a cinch.
From day one, meals were prepared with fresh ingredients, sourced locally, never frozen and with unique flavors that keep boredom at bay. The company has an entire team of nutritionists, health coaches and chefs dedicated to making sure the portion-controlled meals taste delicious and that each customer gets a customized plan that will help them reach their individual goals.
How to Order from Diet-to-Go
Diet-to-Go’s website makes ordering meals simple. Customers can enter their information and goals in Diet-to-Go’s Free Diet Analysis to determine what plan works best for them — the 1,600-calorie plan, the 1,200-calorie plan or the low-carb plans. They can then select one of Diet-to-Go’s three menus:
- The Balance Menu is calorie- and portion-controlled and offers heart-healthy foods that are carefully measured to ensure the proper amount of fat, cholesterol and sodium. Customers can order vegetarian and no-seafood options as well. Meals include chicken, turkey, tuna, meatballs and ravioli, plus whole grain pasta dishes.
- The Balance Diabetes Menu is specifically designed for people with pre- and Type 2 diabetes. It follows the American Diabetes Association’s nutritional guidelines, including controlling for the proper level of carbohydrates and fat. People can eat the meals to prevent diabetes and/or to manage their diabetes and its symptoms, including blood sugar levels. Meals include waffles, burritos, tuna melt-overs, salmon lasagna and more.
- The Carb30 Menu follows an Atkins-style low-carb diet plan, complete with meats, cheeses, eggs and other healthy fats. Meals are limited to an average of 30 net grams of carbs per day. Adding fruits, breads and other sugars is not recommended, which typically isn’t an issue given that the meals are packed with variety, such as frittata, steak, pork loin and meatballs.
- The Vegetarian Menu is heart-healthy and controlled for calories, carbs, sodium, fat and cholesterol. Protein sources include dairy, eggs, beans and soy. Meals include quesadillas, muffin, veggie burgers, quinoa salad, chili, shepherds pie and ravioli.
Along with the variety, meals taste great, too. Epicurious ranked them No. 1 for taste, beating out Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, Biggest Loser and other similar diet meal programs.
Menus come on a five-week rotation to ensure variety. Customers can also customize menus based on their individual preferences on Diet-to-Go’s easy-to-use online portal myDiettogo.
Diet-to-Go offers many convenient ways for customers to get their meals. They can be delivered anywhere in the continental U.S. The company also partners with fitness clubs in many major metros — including Washington, D.C., Baltimore, New Jersey, San Francisco and L.A. — where people can pick them up fresh twice a week. Diet-to-Go also recently launched fresh, same-day delivery.
Because Diet-to-Go meals are controlled for portions and calories, both men and women can lose weight, typically 2 to 3 pounds per week, without exercise, just by sticking with the plan.
What Foods Are Available on the Diet-to-Go Program?
The USDA monitors all foods prepared at Diet-to-Go. Foods also adhere strictly to nutritional guidelines set by top health organizations, such as the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society and others.
Meals will arrive in separate packaging. Side items are also typically packaged separately. Portions in each meal are carefully measured, which also helps teach people about the proper amount of food they should be eating at each meal.

1,200-Calorie Plan: This plan typically works best for women who want to lose weight quickly and naturally.

The free diet analysis helps customers choose which calorie plan is right for them.
