    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!
