Imagine starting a weigh-loss journey just 90 days before your wedding and not seeing your partner until the big day. That’s the premise of the hit TV show Altar’d on Z Living network.
For the three months leading up to their weddings, six couples shed pounds by exercising and eating right. And it was Diet-to-Go that provided all the food leading up to the altar reveal.
Now that this season has ended, we’re revealing the before-and-after’s of each of the six couples, as well as their touching stories — and real testimonials about their Diet-to-Go meals.
We’re continuing our series sharing our picks for the best, healthy restaurants to visit on those days when you feel like getting out and trying something new.
