Frozen Healthy Diet Plan Meals Are Expensive

Most diet plans control weight by providing the right foods in a portion controlled serving. The South Beach Diet Plan is one of the most popular weight loss programs, providing a combination of a low-carbohydrate (they call it right-carb) healthy diet, accountability and a lot of on-line tools. According to expert sources, the South Beach Diet is an variation of a proven type of healthy diet called "Glycaemic Index Diet" and has a lot of similarity to the Atkins low-carb diet and NutriSystem plans. The trouble is that these are very expensive meals, but we've found a frugal alternative.

One of the problems with most weight loss diet plans is the cost of the meals

It really does not matter if your are pursuing the South Beach Diet, Jenny Craig Diet Plan, Weight Watchers, NutriSystem, or any other popular weight loss program: one of the major drawbacks for us "regular folks" is the price of the frozen meals. What people need is a healthy, cost effective diet plan alternative to expensive frozen diet meals. We are happy to report that there is a great alternative to the South Beach Diet and Nutrisystem diets - the easy does it diet plan.

About Healthy Diet Plans - The Big Secret to Frozen Diet Meals

While each of the popular healthy diet programs have their share of testimonies, proponents and opponents, there is no such thing as a silver bullet when it comes to healthy dieting and weight loss. For each program, including South Beach Diet, there are nutritional experts that indicate both pros and cons of every program. One of the advantages of these popular healthy diet plans is that they offer "free tools and support" when you are in their program - buying their products.

Here's the big secret!

Counting the calories, fat grams & carbohydrate grams and calculating the points or exchanges is all well and good, but one of the biggest factors in healthy diet meals for successful weight loss is portion control. If you eat too much of even the best diet foods, you will still put on weight.

When it comes to the diet food that you purchase, dieters pay a premium for their frozen prepared meals because someone took the time to count the calories, carbs, and fats and then put together a prepackaged portion control meal (that's dietician talk for "all you need, not all you want") in packaging that looks far better in the picture than it does coming out of your microwave.

Frozen Diet Meals: The Problem & The Solution

If you find a diet plan that you feel would work for you, but the cost of the meals is a drawback, there is an dieting alternative that, while not free, is certainly much less expensive than buying their frozen diet meals. As we stated, earlier, you pay a lot of money for someone else to do some simple math, cooking and packaging. As an alternative (to the South Beach Diet, Nutrisystem or whatever other meal plan you prefer), all you need is a healthy diet plan and proper diet recipes. The solution is the Easy-Does-It Cookbook and Diet Plan.

Make Your Own Frozen Diet Meals Using The "Diet Appropriate" Foods You Prefer

Frugal Moms and frugal cooks of both genders have long known about the cost saving benefits of once a month cooking. Once-a-month freezer cooking allows you to buy good, healthy food in larger quantities and cheaper prices, and do the majority of your cooking in one day. You then freeze individual meals to be warmed up as needed. This same concept can be applied to dieting: you buy the right foods, cook them in quantity and freeze individual, portion controlled meals like the fancy packed and expensive frozen diet meals you buy from NutriSystem, Jenny Craig or South Beach.

BOOK REVIEW:

Easy-Does-It Diet Plan and Cookbook

When we reviewed this diet eBook we were, in turn, pleasantly surprised by the great content and great recipes (see book table of contents and list of recipes on the authors web site) and then we were motivated to get on with a healthy diet. Here at FrugalMom HQ, we were already big fans of once-a-month cooking. We save lots of money preplanning our meals, buying meat and products at a BJ's Membership Wholesale, and then spending a Saturday in the kitchen cooking up a month's worth of yummy meals. Frozen meals have a prep time of just a few minutes - just enough time to make a salad and get out the plates! We have been buying Lean Cuisine frozen meals, but even shopping at Wal-Mart, the meals were between $1.80 and $2.50 each. South Beach and Weight Watcher meals were mostly in the $2.50 to $2.75 a meal range for their frozen diet meals. I am sure that the prices for these meals at the big grocery chains are even more expensive. The author of the Easy Does it Diet will show you how to get the same types of diet meals at 1/2 to 1/3 the cost! 

The Easy-Does-It Cookbook is revolutionary in combining freezer cooking and diet meals - Diet Freezer Meals!!. With this program, once you learn what types of foods you are allowed to have in each phase of your preferred diet plan, you can cook those types of meals in quantity and freeze portion controlled servings for your own custom healthy diet meals. The beauty of this weight loss program, is that these same meals, or components of these meals, can be served in larger portions to those in your family not concerned with dieting or weight loss.

This is more than just a cookbook - it is a healthy diet plan.  You will find that once you understand the process, from the included diet recipes and meal plans, you will be able to adapt some of your favorite family meals to healthy diet meals. Here at home we are going to buy a bunch of small containers that can go from freezer to microwave to dishwasher. At Dollar Tree, you can buy 2-4 containers for $1. If you really want to be frugal, you can cook and eat out of the same container, just like you probably do with the frozen diet meals you buy. Hardly any dishes!!  We gave the book two thumbs up and recommend it to our readers without reservation.
