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!
