Healthy Chef Creations
Started by a former Disney World spa chef, this meal delivery plan featured in Forbes and Newsweek offers two options - a diet menu and a regular, fully customizable menu that can cater to any allergies, taste preferences, or dietary requirements. The diet plan utilizes portion control (1300 calories per day) and wholesome foods - lean proteins (all meats are free range and organic), fresh organic produce, complex carbs and good fats (like olive oil). Ingredients are all-natural with no preservatives or processed ingredients. The plan costs just under $40 per day. Meals are delivered fresh (you can freeze them, too) twice a week. Menus items include organic tropical oatmeal, seared yellow fin tuna with ginger emulsion and strawberry chocolate mousse.

Rated the #1 meal delivery plan by epicurious.com for taste and nutrition (Read Article) compared to Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, PureFoods Low Carb and Zone Chefs (now Chefs Diet). Weekly deliveries of fresh (not-frozen) food at $18.80 per day (including shipping). You get 3 meals and 1 snack or dessert each day. You provide fruit and dairy.

Chefs Diet
Formerly Zone Chefs, this meal delivery plan is based on Dr. Sears' Zone Diet that balances 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% favorable fats. 14 days of frozen meals are delivered once every other week. Plans range from $14.95-$22.95 per day depending on whether you want 2 or 3 meals a day with or without snacks. Fresh weekly deliveries are also available for more money. Fresh daily deliveries are available in the NY tri-state and southern California areas. According to epicurious.com, the fresh weekly plan offers sophisticated flavors with "mixed results." Kosher, vegetarian and kids' plans available.

RAWvolution - This is L.A.-based raw foods chef Matt Amsden's prepared meal plan featuring all-organic, raw, vegan meals. Each week's box ($100 plus shipping) contains two soups, four gourmet entrées, four side dishes and two desserts and is designed to last 4 days (lunch & dinner). Fans include Susan Sarandon, Cher, Alicia Silverstone and Woody Harrelson. Those not accustomed to an all-raw diet may find the flavors more intense and sharp than a regular, cooked diet.

PureFoods Low Carb - High-protein diet formerly known as Atkins at Home. Fresh food delivered once weekly.

Bistro MD - As seen on Dr. Phil and the Biggest Loser.

Jenny Craig - Frozen and dry foods delivered once every 2 weeks. You supply fruits, veggies and dairy. Pros: Cons: Plan is high in sugar and low in fiber. Uses additives, hydrogenated oils and artificial ingredients.

Nutrisystem - Low cost, freeze-dried (i.e. powdered scrambled eggs), vacuum-packed, canned and bagged foods delivered once a month. No refrigeration required. Less pricey than many other plans, but you supply fruits, veggies, dairy, proteins and fats. Epicurious.com recommends the vegetarian options over the meat options for taste.
