Should I have ready-made 40-30-30 meals delivered to me?
I do not recommend it for two reasons:
- I've seen these ready-made delivered to your door meals priced at over $40 per day per person! That's a lot of coin! On the 40-30-30 diet, you are going to lose around 1.5 pounds per week (any more than that is not very good for your body regardless of the diet). So some 4th grade math yields the stunning cost of almost $200 per pound of weight loss! In a month your food bill would be around $1200 per person. Of course you should check the going rate for this service because it will vary depending on who's offering it but it's going to be expensive.
- Your diet attempt will be very likely to fail. Although people have many different reasons for considering 40-30-30 food delivery, the most common is that they do not want to learn the mechanics of the 40-30-30 concept. Maybe it's laziness or a lack of time but whatever the case, there are a lot of ways to screw up your diet even if it's delivered to you and if you do not learn enough about the 40-30-30 diet to avoid some of these mistakes, all that money will be wasted! I know I sound harsh but I see this story play out again and again. If you can't make a commitment to this (or any) diet, don't even start.
