DINING IN's Menu Expands - So the Bay Area's Waistband Doesn't: Executive Chef, Traci Higgins Introduces THE DAILY DIET

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) - Bay Area residents no longer have to face the challenge of dieting alone because DINING IN (, the leading Bay Area specialized personal chef delivery service has created a program that changes the way you live and how you eat -- making healthy eating easy to do, and poor eating excuses harder to come by. The reason most diets fail is because it's only a diet and not a lifestyle change. DINING IN's Founder and Executive Chef, Traci Higgins, proudly introduces, THE DAILY DIET -- a program that is more than food -- it is support, personal service, easy, fresh, nutritious and pre-portioned organic meals made the same day they are delivered. They are sold in two week packages featuring a breakfast, lunch, dinner and two healthy snacks. All entrees are cooked with the highest quality ingredients and then delivered fresh (never frozen) directly to your home or office, making life simple -- without your having to do the work. THE DAILY DIET is designed to be a 'no-brainer' -- convenient and affordable at just $42 a day (inclusive of all prep time, cooking, portioning, plating and delivery).

The brand new eco-friendly expansion is now servicing the areas of Orinda, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, San Jose and Los Gatos.

"Now it is simple for anyone to lose or maintain their weight loss without having to worry about what to eat, how to prepare it or be concerned about consuming excess fat and calories in take out food. THE DAILY DIET does all that work for you. We'll also make referrals to dietitians and personal trainers in conjunction with signing up. This is a service in which the client will get it all and then some," states Chef Higgins, named one of the "Top 5 Personal Chefs in the Bay Area" by San Francisco Magazine. "We have two different daily calorie-counted category meal options: 1200-1500 calories and 1500-1800 calories.
