I completed my first week of Diet Chef with a smile on my face and a filled stomach. I lost 4lbs. Success.
I can honestly say that it didn’t feel like I was restricting myself in any way and the wide variety of food choices made me feel like I was in control and not the food.
Each day you’re allowed breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a simple snack and some fruit. On Wednesday night I ate my first snack, a bag of salted and sweet popcorn and it took me three attempts to finish them – the bag was never ending. I would have put money that Harry Potter was casting a spell to keep on refilling it.
I’ve been having my breakfast when I get into work at half eight each morning, then eating lunch around one and then I’ll have my piece of fruit mid-afternoon. I don’t bring my snack to work as I usually like to eat something sweet once I’ve eaten my dinner. But through the week I’ve found that once I’ve worked out, had food then bathed I just want to sleep and a biscuit couldn’t be further from my mind.
Below is a quick run-thorugh of some of the meals that I’ve been eating this week:
Breakfast: Porridge, both plain and with strawberries or bananas – this is great when I get into the office and it’s cold.
Muesli – I never thought that I would be a fan of this, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I do take out the pieces of dried fruit though.
Lunch: Each day, lunch is soup. Perfect for this cold weather and the wide selection of flavours means that I have yet to grow tired of this. Spicy beef and tomato has to be my favourite so far. I’ve already eaten two and have my fingers crossed that there is more of them in my box at home.
Dinner: These filling meals, again come with some many different offerings there is no chance of repetition through the week.
Snacks: As of yet, I’ve only eaten one snack, the popcorn I mentioned earlier, but if they’re comparable to size and taste, I will not be disappointed.
Diet Chef certainly gets the thumbs up from me this week, stay tuned and I’ll let you know how I get on next week. If you want to try it and get a week free go to their website, dietchef.co.uk.
