I Love This Diet Review for 2019
The Supermarket Alternative to Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem!
Even Weight Watchers customers are turning to the Frozen Meal Diet Plan for variety...
by Valerie Kirk
What is I Love This Diet?
I Love This Diet is a dietitian-designed online weight loss program that uses specially-approved frozen meals from the supermarket.
For those who are considering Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, or Weight Watchers, I Love This Diet is the more affordable alternative.
Frozen meals from over a dozen grocery store brands are put through a grueling selection process. Only the healthiest meals are approved for use on the program: high-protein and low-sodium.
I Love This Diet comes in the form of a membership site that is easy to use from any computer, tablet or smartphone.
On average, dieters can expect to lose an average of 1 - 2 pounds per week on the program. (Individual results may vary.)
There is also a 30-day money back guarantee, so members have the chance to test drive the diet with no penalty.

How the Diet Works
- The diet is very simple. Members are assigned one of five calorie levels of between 1300 and 1850 calories per day, based on their current weight and gender.
- As members lose weight, their calorie level shifts accordingly. Most members can expect to lose an average of 1 - 2 pounds per week.
- The online membership gives members access to the approved food lists, community forums, and various diet tools such as the Daily Food Journal, Shopping List, Restaurant Guide, Exercise Guide, and much more!
- The best alternative for Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, or Weight Watchers
Each morning they'll eat one of the more than 75 low-calorie, nutritionally-balanced breakfast options from the I Love This Diet Breakfast Guide. Selections range from cereal to bagels, pancakes, and more exciting dishes like breakfast parfaits and soufflés.
Lunch and Dinner
Most members choose to have a frozen meal for lunch, and a frozen meal for dinner.
The dietitian's nutritional standards only hand-pick the best frozen meals for weight loss. As long as it meets all of the qualifications, the frozen meal is approved.
As of 2019, I Love This Diet now includes Gluten Free and Vegetarian frozen meal recommendations.
When You Don’t Feel Like Eating a Prepared Frozen Meal…
On those days when members would rather cook, they may swap their frozen entrée for one of the many low-calorie recipes from the Love Cookbook.
Yet another option is to use the Build Your Own Meal feature, which allows members to create a version of just about any meal, as long as they stick to I Love This Diet's approved foods as ingredients.
The Build Your Own Salad feature gives members almost complete flexibility to create a robust meal-sized salad from dietitian-approved lists of ingredients from different food categories.
One of their latest updates now offers a Build Your Own Smoothie option. Members can choose to create their own smoothie using approved ingredients.
Fruits and Vegetables
Fruit and veggies must be added each day for optimum nutrition, as well as dairy (or dairy substitutes).
If hunger strikes in between meals, members can choose from a variety of healthy, filling, snack ideas from the Hunger Helper Guide.
In addition to the Hunger Helpers, members are allowed limited dessert options from the Treats Guide. It provides a list of delicious, filling, low calorie snacks and desserts, all under 100 calories each.
Guidelines and suggestions for dining out are given in the I Love This Diet Restaurant Guide.
Is it High in Sodium?
Most frozen meals are not approved for use on I Love This Diet. Why? Because, the program's dietitian's analysis only recommends the lowest sodium frozen meals.
Frozen meals that are too high in sodium are typically listed under the non-approved section of the plan.
How Easy is It to Stick to this Diet?
I Love This Diet will work for many people not only because it’s budget-friendly, but because of the variety it offers. There are hundreds of approved frozen meals to choose from, including everything from pizza to chicken teriyaki.
Members won't easily burnout on this meal plan because of the large variety of food from multiple food manufacturers.
The Advantages of I Love This Diet
It’s cheap, easy, and the great variety keeps members from feeling deprived. I Love This Diet also provides lots of flexibility, by allowing its members to choose and create their own menus.
There are dozens of User reviews available, with most reporting having reached their goal.
I Love This Diet doesn’t offer counseling or weigh-ins. Since it is inexpensive, it can’t afford to. The site does offer member forums where I Love This Dieters can read other members' advice, and share their own experiences.
How much does I Love This Diet Cost?
I Love This Diet costs $49.97 for a 6 month membership or $59.97 for a one year membership. There is also a Gold Membership, which never expires!
There are no monthly fees, and there is no renewal contract.
Frozen meal and food recommendations are purchased at the local supermarket.
