Seattle Sutton Healthy Eating

Meal-Delivery weight loss program with diabetics in mind.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Seattle Sutton Healthy Eating program is a meal-delivery program that was started not in Seattle, Washington but in Marseilles, Illinois by Seattle Sutton, a registered nurse who has made it her mission to improve the way people eat.

Created in part to avoid the pitfalls of grabbing a greasy pizza after work or running through the fast-food drive through after a late meeting, Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating meals are convenient, taste-tested, calorie-controlled and low fat.

You can choose between a 1,200 or 2,000 calorie-a-day meal program. The program is intended for people who want to lose weight, are diabetic, have heart disease, are unable to drive or cook for themselves or prefer to not shop and cook meals for themselves or their family.

PRO
  • Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating program was created by medical professional
  • It is a convenient way to eat healthy meals
  • Ideal for diabetics
  • Ideal for those with heart disease
  • Low-calorie and low-fat meals help you to lose weight
  • Fresh-prepared, refrigerated meals
  • Encourages exercise
CON
  • Expensive
  • Does not teach you how to eat or prepare your own meals
  • May not be realistic to always eat delivered meals
  • Not vegetarian friendly
  • No customization of menu
  • Does not take into account the emotional component of eating
DIET and NUTRITION

The Seattle Sutton Healthy Eating meals are delivered to you two times each week, or if you live near a Seattle Sutton's center, you can pick them up. Each shipment contains 21 meals: 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches and 7 dinners. The meals require refrigeration. There are five weeks of meal plans that you will receive alternately.

Unfortunately, special requests like vegetarian options cannot be accommodated. Each of the two meal plans, either the 1,200 or the 2,000 calories, sticks to foods that are low on the glycemic index in order to stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent any surges in hunger.

Sample menu items include apple-cinnamon muffins, peirogies, spinach calzones, salmon fillet and southwestern bean and pasta salad.

On the plan, you are allowed to drink fat-free milk, have an occasional alcoholic drink and go out to dinner. If you go out to dinner, you are encouraged to eat salads with dressing on the side, lean protein and vegetables with no added butter. It is then recommended that you freeze your Seattle Sutton dinner for another meal.

EXERCISE

The Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating program does not require that you exercise as part of your diet, but they do encourage you to exercise if you want to lose weight. According to the company, successful weight loss requires that you take in fewer calories than you use. Eating a healthy, balanced diet combined with moderate exercise is the most effective way to lose weight.

CONCLUSION

Like other meal-delivery programs, the Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating program is designed to help you lose weight without having to count calories or prepare your own meals. If you don't mind spending the money to have someone cook for you, then this program might be a wise choice. Just keep in mind that the diet does not instill any knowledge in you on how to prepare your own meals. Once you leave the program, it then becomes your responsibility to teach yourself how to shop and cook for yourself while maintaining your new weight loss.

I joined Seattle Sutton because I was just eating like a pig and seemed unable to make good food choices, and I was tired of trying. The program has largely solved those problems. I find most of the food to be pretty good and even things I don' t think I'll like, I end up enjoying.
It's true that the set plan can feel like a drawback, because you can't eliminate things you don't want. And there is plenty in the way of meat and nuts. But at the same time, I was at a point that I needed decisions to be made for me, and it has worked. If you are a really picky eater or can't be happy without making choices, this is not the plan for you.
I agree that 1200 calories doesn't feel like enough. I supplement with snacks and my 'regular' breakfast, and I'm still losing weight (about twice as fast as when I have dieted in the past on my own).
While it doesn't "teach" you how to cook, it provides a pretty good model of how you should eat. At this point, I know I still can't manage portions by myself, but I at least now can identify healthy things that I like to eat. In the future when I am no longer trying to lose weight, I would have no problem making my own meals using the program as a model.

Seattle Sutton is a GREAT way to get me back in control when my diet gets out of control. I usually lose 5 lbs a week if I walk/run 3-4 miles 5X a week while on this program! Now and then grab organic raisens or low fat yogurt to get me through the tough moments - especially when I first start on it! Thank you Seattle Sutton!

Several years ago I was a distributor of Seattle Suttons Healthy Eating when I lived in Illinois. I loved the meals and only have high praise for Seattle Sutton and the product. The diet helped me lose 80lbs and I knew so many other people who were helped by this meal plan. I loved seeing many people who had health problems overcome them. The great thing about Seattle Suttons Healthy Eating I found was that it does teach portion control. Only if you are a really picky eater will you have problems with this plan. The company DOES accually care about the customers. When I ran a franchise of Seattle Suttons I had no problem with the meals. The company runs a safe, healthy nutritious program. This all says alot coming from me when I personally felt unfairly treated by Seattle Suttons on a personal level while being a franchiser of her product.

The food Is amazing!!! I love that I can get meals that include fresh salads and fruit brought right to my doorstep!
I lost 25 pounds in 7 weeks! This works and it's really healthy. I've tried many programs but the food is best with this one- really good. My favorite is the signature pizza!

The food is OK, if you like a LOT of bread and noodle dishes this would be good for you. The side for a lot of meals is a loaf of bread, and a lot of the breakfasts are muffins or types of sweet bread. Most of the dinners incorporate noodles. The 1,200 plan is in reality less than 1,000 calories because you are supposed to supplement fat free milk in your diet. I wish they had a 1,500 cal plan because I feel that the 1,200 is too little but the 2,000 is too much. I find it hard to work out and not be hungry only consuming around 1,200 calories per day. After saying this, they should add in snacks between meals considering how much you already pay for the plan. I am in arizona and it's around $125 per week - no delivery

Seatle Sutton is the best program out there....I am a male 42 years old and I have lost 35 lbs in 60 days. I love Seatle Sutton. The cost is worth my health (if you add up all the food and medications I take becuase of being over weight--Seatle Sutton long term is a better option)

I absolutely love Seattle Sutton's. I could rave about it all day! I've been on it for almost three years now. I've lost so much weight. I was freaked out by the cost at first, but I actually spend way less on food now than three years ago. All I buy from the grocery store is milk, and maybe some ice cream here and there... ;)

I have only been using SSHE for 2 weeks, but I love it. It is expensive, but when you are trying to eat healthy and buying alot of fresh produce and lean cuts of meat, that can get pretty spendy too. I use to spend hours in the kitchen preparing healthy meals and cleaning up, now I spend 2 minutes. I have more time to spend doing other things. This takes all the work out of trying to eat healthy with the planning of your meals, shopping and cooking. You no longer have to do any of that. And I have found the food tastes great, even things I didn't think I would ever eat, like a veggie burger!

With the SSHE meals I know I'm getting all my nutritional requirements including lowering my sodium. Every other plan seems to have way too much sodium. I actually save money and no longer waste food bought with good intentions of preparing but never finding the time.

The first time I tried it I lost 23 pounds and recommended it to everyone. This time I am losing weight but the food is just unpleasant to eat. I just throw the chicken away now. it is only 3 weeks and I quit. I will try on my own.

The food is quite delicious, better than Jenny Craig which I have been on and off for the past 14 years. I like to switch between Seattle Sutton and Jenny Craig. Both programs are expensive but they work as long as you don't cheat. The problem is since I've always used these plans to lose weight, around 8 to 12 pounds in around three months, I never learn how to just control what I eat when I go off the plan. It seems I can eat whatever I want afterward for about six weeks and then the weight starts creeping up. Then I get to the point where I can't stand it anymore and have to pay money to go back on the diet. It's probably not the best thing to do but it seems to be what works for me and until I can learn how to control portions and what I eat on my own I'll stick with the plans. And also, one day when I'm living on a fixed income I will for sure have to learn how to do this on my own because like I said, it's expensive.

I'm on my second week of sshe. I signed up mostly for the convenience factor (though after having eaten so much over the holidays if I lose a few lbs I'll be really happy). The price is too much for me to do on a regular basis and they just increased the price $15.00 more per week since Jan 1st. I have them delivered so for my area with the 20.00 delivery fee I'm paying 154.00/week.
The food is over all really good. Some of the fruit is not ripe. I've swapped fruits between days to encourage some ripening otherwise I just eat it anyway. I've eaten everything including the items I didn't like (the brussel sprouts and the beets). I've reminded myself that while I don't like them, they are nutritious and that is why they were given to me. I often pull out the fruit or bread to use as a snack so that I'm eating 4 or 5 times a day. For the most part I find the meals quite filling and even the icky brussel sprouts (my least favorite vegetable ever) were edible. I love that they're fresh meals. Nothing takes more than 2 minutes in the microwave to heat up, the packaging works great for transporting and everything is easy to assemble. I would suggest that people buy a bag of salad, and a tomato or two. I happened to already have some in the fridge and I'm glad because it made the burgers seem more gourmet.
If you can afford the expense and if you're willing to be objective and eat what you're given I think this is a great program. There is also no commitment. My delivery woman asks me if I want the next week of meals or not, and that's it. No pressure, and she's super sweet.
If you were living on lean cuisine like me, this is a real treat.

I was so happy to have SSHE move into my town! After 3 babies, and the weight gain that came with them...I needed some help to lose baby fat! I didn't have the time to head off to a weekly meeting, and honestly, I was lacking in the "will power" department, so prepackeged and preplanned meals were a great answer!
The representatives are local, so you always talk to the same person(s). The delivery is a great option, or you can drive to their area location weekly to pick up which saves around $30.
The food is fresh, not frozen! It was great to eat meals that were balanced, and purposely put together to make your body chemestry work to keep you full and lose the cravings and the pounds!
I enjoyed all but one the chinese selections. The dinner roll was slightly tough because of it being cold, but I always ate it! The portions are small, but I always felt fulfilled, and frankly, my portions had been for "two" so it was good to have a visual of what is appropriate.
I was on SSHE for at least 2 months, maybe 3 and I lost 30 lbs. with little exercise.
They don't require signing contracts. You can order 1/2 weeks, full week, or up to 3 months in advance. If you choose to have them deliver, they used to have a cooler "deposit" that you get back when you'd return it, or else it was your's to keep for your "deposit" fee.
