I can't believe I have just finished 28 days on Diet Chef. It has really flown by. Above are some of the yummy foods I have enjoyed - as breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners. As this will be my final post on the meal delivery programme, I thought I would go through the highlights of the past month.
Diet Chef Highlights:
1. The Food - I think it is a huge plus to be able to choose which meals to have each month. This is especially helpful if you continue with the diet as you can select the meals that you thought were really tasty.
2. The Ease - There is no weighing or calorie counting. The three meals and snack allotted for each day are worth 900-1100 calories. This gives you a few hundred calories to spend on whichever fruit and vegetables you like. There is also the added bonus of not having to make dinner every night (although I still cooked dinner for the kids, Husband and I just microwaved our Diet Chef dinners every evening).
3. The Results - I was thrilled to lose 2-4 pounds each week, although 1-2 pounds is probably more of a normal loss. But my body was so accustomed to a high caloric intake that 1400-1500 calories really made a huge difference. Husband and I are fans of the sneaky nightly chocolate pudding/candy bar. But we resisted on the diet and even this week have not gone back to our old, sneaky ways. Woohoo.
So, after 28 days of Diet Chef, I weighed myself and was happy to find that I now weigh 14 stone 2 pounds. That is a 10-pound weight loss. My clothes are fitting better and I can start to see my cheekbones again. Cheekbones. Squeal. So thank you Diet Chef. Husband has lost eight pounds and is also pleased. But the healthy eating and the exercise is far from over. I will be continuing on my Healthy Living Lucky Dip, as I still have two stone of baby weight to lose. So stay tuned.

I was given a 28-day supply of Diet Chef for the purpose of my weekly reviews. Husband paid for his own. All opinions expressed are completely my own.
