Healthy prepackaged meal joints springing up... any comments?

Saw in the forklore blog at austin360.com that a place called My Fit Foods is opening up near me on North Lamar Blvd. A week or so ago, I saw another place open up just like this. A google search also turned up Tasty Healthy Meals. The My Fit Foods, and the other place who's name I cannot recall had similar modus operandi: You consult with a "nutrition expert" and formulate a plan of foods to eat. And you buy their food.

The menu I looked over had lots of turkey and quinoa, whole wheat. The latest foods understood to be healthy...

Both places preached a 21 day plan, commenting that it takes 21 days to form a habit. They offer "healthy" eating options and weight loss options. The food choices look interesting and certainly 7 or 8 steps above Nutrisystem for dieters and wanna be dieters (like myself).

Given how much I spend on fast food and groceries, the prices are only slightly more than I'm spending right now.

Does anyone on the board have any prior experience with these services? Any comments would be appreciated.
