My Thoughts

I have been trying to shake my last 7 pounds of baby weight for a while now and it just seems stuck on me – literally! I don’t typically diet because I don’t like to give up the foods I like! I prefer to just eat what I want and exercise. But this is the first time in my life that I’ve really struggled to lose weight, even if it wasn’t a lot. Getting pregnant at thirty seven definitely took a toll on my body and made it really hard to lose the weight. That’s why I decided to throw my “no diet rule” to the wind and give diet-to-go a try!

I’ll be honest. With picky eaters in my house and a baby that I made homemade baby food for, I’m a little tired of food! Part of the appeal of this plan to me was that the food is delivered right to my door! No cooking, no pans to clean up, no planning, no shopping – just food delivered to my door. I was already sold!

diet-to-go-app-mealplanI tried the traditional low fat menu but they also have Low-carb and Vegetarian available. The food came delivered in one big package on dry ice so it was still cold and some of it even frozen.

I was really excited to have such a large variety of foods that included drinks, condiments and everything I needed! I told my husband to fend for himself for a week!

I’m not going to lie. I was a bit disappointed in the food. It just didn’t taste as good as it looked. It was definitely lacking in flavor. But I’ve never really eaten a low fat diet before so I’m sure that part of what flavors food is also what fattens it. It was definitely edible and some of the things like the Peachy Keen Muffin and Tomato Pesto Meltover were downright delicious. It just wasn’t all as good as I expected.

But here’s the good news and why it’s worth it. I lost four pounds in a week! That’s more than half of what I want to lose total and I definitely wasn’t expecting such drastic results! I never cheated and only ate the food provided. The first day, I was really hungry and struggled. At one point I even felt kind of weak so I skipped my regular workout. My body was not used to eating only 1500 calories a day so I listened to my body. The next day was better and by the third day I was adjusted and not hungry between meals.

Since I was feeling hungry in the beginning and had less energy as a result, I didn’t do my regular workout routine and then I ended up with sick kids so didn’t work out at all. I try to work out four times a week so I’m guessing I would have lost even more if I was burning more calories on top of eating diet food.

Now that this diet helped me to get past that hump of the scale not moving I’ll get back to my normal workout routine and hopefully lose those past few pounds.

I also tried the diet-to-go app as a companion to my plan to help keep track of the calories I was taking in, burning and water intake. Just looking at the numbers helps keep you accountable and makes a huge difference! I think the app really helped me to stick with it and not cheat because the numbers were glaring at me in black and white. It also tracked my weight loss which was encouragement to keep going when I just wanted to eat a cheeseburger and chocolate cake!

I liked that the app had regular food in it so that you could keep track of calories and even included things found at many restaurants. I just wish that it had the specific meals you get from diet-to-go so that the exact calorie count would match instead of trying to search for something similar.

Although I think the food could have had a little more taste, I definitely think the diet-to-go experience is worth it. I’m a busy mom of three responsible for feeding my household so to me, anything I didn’t have to cook is worth eating! It was also nice knowing all my nutritional needs were being met without me having to do the actual counting of everything. It was all done for me!

My Thoughts

In my quest to lose the last few pounds of baby weight, body fat percentage has started to become more important to me than just the number on the scale. I actually have an Ozeri scale that measures my body fat percentage as well as pounds so I was curious to see how this would measure up – literally!

When I first tried the Body Fat Test Caliper, I thought it felt a little cheap to me. I was worried it wouldn’t work well. t was also worried about it’s accuracy. Grabbing skin anywhere on my stomach doesn’t seem to be a good way to measure fat to me. After having three babies, I have extra skin on my stomach that isn’t really fat.

But my fears were calmed when I saw that you actually measure an inch above your hip bone and there is less leftover skin there so it seems to be a fairly accurate assessment. It was easy to just grab the skin and measure it as instructed. When you pinch your skin together, the inner dial automatically slides over and locks in place so you can still read it when you pull it away from your body.The Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo PackNow I don’t know about you but when it comes to fat measurement, I want it to read as little as possible! So I pinched that thing until it hurt! I was curious to see if that really made a difference. I tried several times putting different degrees of pressure on it but the most difference it ever made was a millimeter. There is a chart included where you can look up the measurement against your age to determine your body fat percentage. It wasn’t exactly the same as my scale says but it was close and I’ve heard this is the more accurate way to measure. In my case that turned out to be good news!

I didn’t have as much luck with the body tape measure. I was actually really exited about this one. I mean why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? A body tape measure that is curved to fit your body and you can lock it into place with the little barrel to read the number while it’s still on your body.The Ozeri Body Tape Measure

 

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be well made because it broke the first time I tried to use it. The little barrel on the end broke off and when I pressed the button to wind up the tape, it pulled it completely back inside rendering it useless. Luckily, Ozeri has 100% money back guarantee.

The Body Fat Test Caliper worked great and was a quick, easy way to measure body fat. I loved the idea of the Tape Measure but it didn’t survive my very first try! Sad day. At only $9.95 for both, you get what you pay for.
