Diet Doc Review and Giveaway


Diet Doc
Most of the time when you hear of pre-packaged diet foods you think of dry, tasteless and bland foods. Most diets have do's and don'ts that make a lot of us cringe.  I was very pleased to be given the opportunity to review DietDoc hCG foods. We all want to lose a few pounds before the holidays and I was eager to give DietDoc a try.

You might be asking, “What is the hCG diet?” The hCG diet was initially created over 60 years ago by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons where his patients achieved rapid weight loss when the human-produced hCG hormone was given in a low dose, coupled with a 500 calories per day diet. Diet Doc is the only modern day version of the hCG weight loss diet. The doctors at Diet Doc took the original Dr. Simeons’ hCG diet protocol and updated it to one where dieters consume no less than 800 calories per day in conjunction with prescription level hCG injections or sublingual tablets. Each dieter also consumes hCG diet foods, weight loss shakes and weight loss oil specifically created for an hCG diet.

The Diet Doc weight loss program is a medical weight loss diet program in which each person receives a comprehensive medical review of his/her health history to make sure that they are a good candidate for the Diet Doc diet.

Diet Doc comes in several varieties:
Diet Doc Chili – 20 calories per serving – just add chicken and any vegetables
Diet Doc Steak Soup – 20 calories per serving – just add meat and vegetables
Diet Doc Hot & Sour Soup – 20 calories per serving – just add tofu or chicken
Diet Doc Chicken Gumbo – Add chicken and vegetables
Diet Doc Thai Chicken –Add chicken and vegetables

Diet Doc also makes fabulous weight loss bars, shakes , “fatless” cooking oil and salad dressings that are perfectly formulated for the hCG diet. The Diet Doc food is so tasty that you’ll enjoy our food even if you’re on another weight loss diet or are not dieting at all. You can visit their website to see all the other items they offer. 

I was offered the opportunity to select three of their items to try out and review on my blog. I chose the Chili, Steak Soup and Thai Chicken.

The first one I tried was the chili. The packet instructions were simple and easy. All I needed was to add my lean meat, low sodium canned tomatoes and other veggies as I saw fit. So I set out to cook up some chili on this cold winter day. 

Ingredients:
1 packet Diet Doc Chili Seasoning
1/2 lb ground turkey, cooked
1 can black beans, drained
1 can of low sodium diced tomatoes
1 tsp of tomato paste
2 3/4 cups water
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped

Take 3/4 cup of water and add the seasoning mix to hydrate. Set aside for 10 minutes. Notice the bright red color and the seasonings. Looks good!!

Add onion and garlic to a saucepan and cook until onions are translucent. Add turkey. Cook and then drain the meat mix. 
 
Place all ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Then simmer on low for 10 minutes until thickened, stirring to prevent sticking. Allow to set 5 minutes and stir well before serving.

The whole process from start to finish took about 30 minutes. And it was easy. 

And it was tasty. I would never think that a meal on the HCG Diet Plan would be so delicious AND nutritious. Just the word diet brings thoughts of bland food, but DietDoc changes those perceptions. The chili was flavorful and filling. This diet food did not leave me wanting more. The meal was full of fiber with the beans and the garlic and onion added good flavor to the turkey. The blend of seasonings in the mix was just right and not overpowering. I added a bit of low fat cheese to the top of the chili and paired it with a side salad. 

My husband also loved the flavor and loved the fact it was nutritious and not full of preservatives and ingredients you can't always pronounce. He said it could use more meat and less tomato, however he still gobbled it down and said it was amazing good. He also could not believe this was "diet" food.

Each packet contains four servings. They will be good sized servings because I thought my pot of chili would serve six.
