The Fresh Diet – A Review for Gastric Bypass Patients – Preview

So, Melting Mama http://www.meltingmama.net/ reviewed The Fresh Diet a little while ago, and she made the whole thing sound incredible.  The fresh foods, delivered to your doorstep, portion controlled meals are a Godsend to someone like me, who tends to eat too large portions of all the wrong foods all the time.  Oh, and I hate that whole cooking and preparing foods thing.

But the cost of the diet (in the $1300 per month range) is out of my budget, absolutely unthinkable.

And then…a code.  I love me some codes!  Mama posted a code on her site for three free days on the Fresh Diet – you pay only for the delivery charges of $15.  Okay, now it’s thinkable.

The initial process wasn’t smooth.  I went to the website with my code, but couldn’t find an option for a three day program.  I entered all of my information, but when I did, I could only go to the full 7 day menu option, and still couldn’t find a place to put a code.  Because I started this 10 minutes after I was supposed to be out the door to pick the kids up at school, I ended up jotting down the phone number and racing out the door.  As I was in car line waiting for Eilis to come out, they called me.  It was a Big Brother moment as I gathered my wits to sort out why The Fresh Diet was calling me, as I couldn’t think of anything I had done wrong (Catholic school guilt).  She actually was very helpful, set up my account, and gave me a code to log back into the computer in an hour and order my meals.

As soon as I got home, I logged in, and sure enough, there was my three day diet!  Browsing the menu options was like browsing a menu in your favorite bistro, with options like Chilean Sea Bass and Asian style chicken salad.  There are snacks and desserts, and everything sounds like it will be delicious!

I place my order, and I am confirmed for delivery beginning on May 3rd.  I can’t wait to try everything, see if I lose anything, and let you know how it tastes and if it’s pouch-worthy!
