Diet Chef: Week 1 Review

Well, one week into to my diet with Diet Chef and I have lost 2 pounds!

I am really surprised that I managed to lose weight so quickly and really so easily given that I've been eating three meals a day and a snack.

Don't get me wrong the portion sizes are not huge but then they’re never going to be when you're trying to lose weight, but what each meal lacks in quantity it really does make up for in quality.

My exciting delivery of food for the month!

Every meal I've had has been really delicious and although the portion sizes are quite small I found the bulking them out with lots of vegetables or fruit has helped.

Out of all the meals I've had so far these are my favourite;

For breakfast I'm really loving the soft chocolate cookie. It tastes so delicious it's really difficult to believe that this is a diet food! I never thought a cookie for breakfast would allow me to lose weight!

This pasta pot is so yum!

My favourite lunch at the moment is the pesto pasta pots. You get a really decent amount of pasta in the pots, they're ready in five minutes and so filling and tasty.

I'm a big fan of curry so I was over the moon to find out that I was able to indulge in a curry while on this diet. The Diet Chef chicken korma has now established itself as one of my favourite meals. I do cook some rice to have with it but I will measure it out to ensure that it still within my calorie allowance.

A months worth of food!

Two of my favourite snack so far are their cheese and onion crisp snacks and the Cranberry protein bar.  They're both really yummy and satisfy my cravings between meals, be they for sweet things or savoury.

Because it's been so hot I haven't had the chance to do as much exercise as I would've liked so I'm still surprised to have lost 2 pounds this week.

The first couple of days were hard because the portion sizes are relatively small compared to what I've been used to, but a week on I feel I'm coping much better.

My whole day's worth of meals planned!

I love that at the start of the day I can plan out what meals I'm going to have and it's just so easy.

They’re so quick to make as well it means my meal times don’t eat into any of my precious ‘me’ time.

So to summarise, one week in I’m feeling impressed, motivated and really pleased!

Bring on week two!
