Dine like a Celebrity Fit Club member

If it’s good enough for Marsha Brady then maybe it’s good enough for you too. Susan’s Healthy Gourmet is a meal-based delivery system that prepares meals for you. All you do is eat them and lose the weight. Sounds easy, right? This meal program is what helped Maureen McCormick (aka Marsha Brady) keep her weight off after winning the Celebrity Fitness Challenge in which she lost a highly commendable 34 pounds! (She’s also been linked with Slim Shots).

Susan is back at it again for this coming season as she provides meals for VH1′s returning hit, Celebrity Fit Club. The meals that the season six cast are eating have been prepared exclusively by Susan’s.

I love the idea of having my meals prepared for me with all of the calories, and fat and protein grams calculated. LOVE IT! I have never had the fun (or wallet) of joining such a service, but it sounds like its a great and convenient way to pamper yourself while trying to get the number on the scale to drop down a few.

I do wonder how the food tastes? Is it like airplane food, but low cal? Are the portions meager or do you feel pretty satisfied after noshing? Have you ever used a meal delivery program like Susan’s Healthy Gourmet? If so, let us know what your experience was like. I’m really curious to find out.

7 New Diet Reviews including Flat Belly Diet, Hollywood Cookie Diet and Pink Patch

There’s always something new turning up in the diet world. That’s why we’re happy to introduce seven new reviews to our more than 330- always keeping you up to date with unbiased details about each and every one. If you’ve tried one of these diets or products- please share with the other site visitors either in the comments for this post, comments for the review or talk about it in the Live Chat.

Flat Belly DietThe Flat Belly Diet
A new release from Prevention magazine editors, claiming to have finally found the cure for belly fat- no exercise! The book suggests that by eating a diet rich in MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids), you can target the stomach to rid belly fat. While it has a 91% success rate- we’re not too sure of its lack of exercise.

The Pink Patch
Medicinal patches, makeway for the Pink Patch from Curb Your Cravings. The once-daily sticker contains yerba mate, a popular diet supplement that acts as an appetite suppressant. This weight loss method was made popular by its sister product, the Hoodia Patch.

Dancing with the Stars
No one anticipated the weight loss that this reality phenomenon would provide its stars- but that’s what happened and audiences have taken notice. While an actual DWTS “diet” has yet to be creative, those looking for a fun way to add in exercise should try the tango and cha-cha.

Sambazon AcaiSambazon Acai
Acai is that little berry from the Amazon that is supercharged with antioxidants and other healthy features like Omega 3, protein and fiber. No wonder its a Super Food! Sambazon is one of the leading producers of natural Acai products- like smoothies and capsules.


eDiets Deliciously Yours

Meal delivery programs have become an increasingly popular weight loss method. eDiets Deliciously Yours is their new meal delivery service promising chef-designed menus, fresh-delivered food and the freedom of choice. This new service has had a rough start due to customer service issues, but is not without its fans either.

Slim Shots
They look like the coffee creamer cups you’d find on a diner table, but instead they’re filled with a 20 calorie appetite suppressant. Taken twice a day, this hot new product is supposed to keep you from feeling hungry and ultimately shed pounds. The extra calories are no doubt attributed to the artificial vanilla flavor and sweetner.

Hollywood Cookie DietHollywood Cookie Diet
One diet that says go ahead- get your hand caught in the cookie jar. Hollywood celebs are chowing on cookies and losing weight. The cookies act as a meal replacement with 150 calories, 13 vitamins and minerals and 4 grams of fiber. They four flavors are delicious and filling- and keep you from grabbing a burger!
