    Just over a month into my diet and I have lost 15lbs. I’m really pleased. It hasn’t really been all that difficult as the food has been pretty good. The porridge or muesli keeps me full till lunch and soup with a mini wholemeal roll set me up for the afternoon. A mid-afternoon snack from the Diet Chef selection is a nice treat and then it’s time for dinner. That has become a little boring as I’m vegetarian and there aren’t so many choices for me. I’ve found that adding some cauliflower and grated low fat cheese to the macaroni cheese certainly adds something and a wide variety of vegetables and salads help. I’ve enjoyed the curries too, spicing them up a little as I like a bit of heat! I’ve been able to add basmati rice, a low fat yogurt, some ryvita and cottage cheese or some extra fruit and kept easily to my calorie limit. Seeing the weight loss at the end of week is enough to keep me motivated for the moment so I’m carrying on.

    The problem this week is that it’s Easter and the house will be full of chocolate! Wish me luck!

    As I said in my previous post, I have decided to use Diet Chef to lose some weight. I have now been following the diet for a week and have lost 5lbs.

    The diet has been easy to follow. The portions are weighed out, the food is tasty and there is plenty of choice although I may get fed up after a few weeks! Most importantly, I have not been hungry. I’ve had a choice of porridge, muesli or granola for breakfast, soup or pasta for lunch and lots of different dinners such as macaroni cheese, vegetable curry or vegetable chilli. I can add rice or bread, 2 portions of fruit and 1 of vegetables, milk and a snack.

    One of my favourite soups was the carrot and butterbean, really tasty and filling.


    The chick pea tagine with some low fat cheese and a big salad made a great dinner.

    I’ve so far enjoyed the food and have enjoyed even more seeing the weight loss at the end of the week. This is a good solution for me as I have been able to make a meal for the family and then pop mine in the microwave and just make a big salad or some veg to go with it. The soups at lunch have been great too, quicker than making a sandwich and much better for me.

    The biggest problem was finding somewhere to store 35 days worth of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack!

    I have made a big decision. I have decided to try Diet Chef to help me lose the weight that has piled on in the last few years. I am a bit worried about the meals as I am vegetarian, usually cook everything from scratch with fresh ingredients and I don’t like ready meals but I have heard good reports of Diet Chef and decided to give it a try. I hope it will take away the problem of making a non-veggie meal for my family as well as something for myself, I usually end up reaching for cheese or eating all of something which is enough for 2! I don’t tend to snack or eat sweets or chocolate anyway and I always like to have plenty of fresh fruit and veg so I’m hoping this will be a good way to get rid of some of that excess weight without lots of weighing and calorie counting. The meals are ordered and should be here in 2 or 3 days so wish me luck and watch this space!
