I have used deit chef twice to loose weight before cycling holidays. The food is great. I never feel hungry and there is enough flexibility that you can go out for a meal or pint now and again as long as you watch your calories and still loose the weight.
The company is very trustworthy and delivers what it says when it says it's going to.
I highly recommend this after trying every other diet this really works.
I ordered Diet Chef after receiving a recommendation for a colleague in the US of a similar product that he has used. I had previously successfully lost over 2 stone. However i had hit a wall 2.5 stone off my optimum weight and no matter what i have tried i have not been able to break it.
I have now been on Diet Chef for a week and i have lost 7 lbs!! That isn't a miss type. Yes 7lbs in 1 week. The food is in good portions and i have not come across anything i have not found tasty to date.
I would recommend this to anyone who is struggling with weight loss. If you stick to it and don't cheat, it works!
Anyone with will power can starve themselves to lose weight & this is the principle that diet chef works on. Be careful as it says 1200 calories per day on the menu option, whether it be 1,2 or 3 month option. However should you purchase it you will receive an email the following day stating you will only receive 800 calories per day. When I complained they said if you had done the Free Profile & BMI calculation it would clearly state you only get 800 calories per day in your hamper. Another lie, it only says once you've purchased & added your fruit & veg this will make UP TO 1200 calories a day suggesting you actually receive less. In short £190 for 800 calories a day is ridiculous when the AVERAGE person will need & therefore have to purchase ALOT more food to make up your recommended amount! Shop online & do it yourself, much cheaper way to starve yourself. 800 calories NOT 1200 calories...remember that!
◇Food was horrible all mush and tastless.
◇I gained weight
◇When I called to cancel they sent me in circles and were very rude
◇Never again instead I just followed some healthy meal recipe's to take to work instead
The food that arrives is surprisingly pleasant - not everything is to my taste but I can adjust my order each month so can avoid the things I don't like. Some of it is really nice.
Adding fruit, veg and dairy products makes it more expensive than it initially seems, but also livens up the day's food and helps to mix up meals a bit.
It's a quick way to lose weight and doesn't need as much willpower as I feared.
I have struggled for years with 'normal' diets as my lack of willpower is a huge barrier to any success. However, with Diet Chef it takes the worry of preparation and portion size out of the equation so I am finding it much easier to stick too and still feel full.
Have only been eating the meals for one week, so limited tasting experience. 99% of my meals have been absolutely fab, however, I will definitely NOT be reordering Veggie Lasagne or the Veggie soup as I had to bin them and find an alternative. Its so easy and simple to follow and I think its a really great way to diet and I am convinced even I will be able to follow this regime.
There is low variability in the food. The flavours are too intense and the creamy taste of some meals seem just too fat. I struggle to be able to finish my meals.
The soups are too dense but at the same time I feel that lack vegetables, which it what soup should be about.
Breakfasts are ok and also enjoy the snacks.
I think the concept of the meals are in reverse. I do not believe that a big meal at dinner is right. I think soup is more appropriate for dinner time, before going to bed.
I would have preferred to have more fish meals and less meat.
The meals do satisfy and sometimes I think the afternoon snack is too much and not needed.
The only breakfast that is filling is the porridge. The snacks such as popcorn and oat biscuits are nice- forget about the protein bars. The soups seem ok for lunch but the dinners so far have been non- appetising. Diet chef not working for me, just wish I hadn't signed up for 3 months as it will be waste of money. Had anticipated enjoying diet chef from a number of reviews ihad read but that was just wishful yhinking on my part.
Very good quick solution to easy lazy weight loss! Love the porridge and pop corn! Love the fact that they deliver to Rep of Ireland FREE! I feel that they should offer a taster week however to see if people would like it.
The diet is good because it is simple and you know what you are going to be eating every breakfast lunch and dinner. However, the meals are watery and the meat is dry. It's made to last a long time so it's not fresh tasting.
Diet Chef is the best way to lose weight. The meals are tasty and easy to prepare. Stick to the rules (easy to do) and the weight just melts away. The staff, if you phone are very helpful and the on-line service is excellent.
Some of the salad options are not a favourite however the soups are delicous. I have enjoyed the main courses I have chosed but my favourites so far is coq au vin and meatballs. The snacks are very tasty and are just waht you need when you are feeling empty. However on the whole I feel full the majority of the time.
The choice of meals is exceptional, and all very tasty. I have tried many many diets without success. This system trained my body to accept smaller portions on a more regular basis. I lost weight without all the problems of regular gym visits. To be honest, I love it.
Me: I am doing Diet Chef. Friend: ain't that dear. Me: I had it on offer this month £130 and I am so pleased with it meals are real tasty I don't have hassle of preparing anything just take out the box what I need for the day at work. Doing other diets I lost interest as it was weighing or counting calories this is all done for you I have lost 4lbs in 9 days. Don't even feel hungry like before so pleased really am my daughter is going to do it too if she sees my result after this month.
Please do away with the sugary tasting pasta salad and the really dodgy looking and tasting pasta carbonara ... it cant be healthy!
All in all most things taste fine and the delivery is speedy and the meal plans are convenient - it would be nice to have sides to go with the meals that don't come with them already in that are mainly sauce, just so that the portions are correctly weighed out and saving the issue of having to weigh out or calorie count out the extra rice/pasta/ potato/salad sides (which was the whole point in joining diet chef in the first place)
this is the only diet I have stuck to, even though it is only 9 days. I am looking forward to my next month supply
I am vegetarian, but do eat fish . There is only one fish dinner ( salmon) which I didn't find particularly appetising. I also struggled to choose vegetarian dinners from the list. I did not like the mushroom stroganoff at all. If I order again there are very limited number of vegetarian meals that I will order so will have to duplicate a lot. I do like the choice of breakfast and snacks and the soups are tasty.

The fact that my diet is completely defined and organized makes it a winter.
I started diet chef after putting on weight following IVF. I have found it to be easy and effective. It takes away the stress of dieting as I don't have to worry about counting calories or fat content. On the whole, the meals a tasty and filling - there are only one or two that aren't to my taste. I've only been doing the diet for a week, but in that week I have lost 7lbs and am already starting to feel better in myself.
ordered on 1/11, considering i live in SW france I expected a 10 day delivery but , there is was in 4 days over a public holiday and a weekend, wow! Great service.
Before I signed up was concerned about reviews but have been on it one week and have lost 5 lbs. Most of the food is fine. Breakfast muesli bars are lovely. I like soup so this suits me for lunch and there is lots of choice. Dinners are good I have not really felt hungry. I would definitely recommend it only draw back is the price.
Only been on the diet around 5 days now and have lost 1.6kgs but the food is so good I think I could stay on it forever. So easy and good fun deciding what to have each day from the list of food I chose. My husband is also on the diet with me and he is so surprised at how good everything has tasted so far. A few little hunger pangs now and then just before my meals. The best diet I have tried so far and I have tried many. Hoping the weight keeps coming off over the next few months.
I've only been following the plan for a week, but so far so good. The ordering process was very straightforward and the food arrived when it should have. Meals wise, I really like all of the breakfast and snack options I've had so far, but regarding the soups for lunch and the evening meals, I'd recommend going for the non-creamy options. I don't know what is in them, but they all smell a bit rancid and don't taste much better! The remaining meals are really quite tasty though.
Am perfectly happy with Diet Chef. Deliveries are always prompt, any queries have always been courteously dealt with, and when cancelling after I have achieved the weight loss I was aiming for, there is never any questioning or sales pressure. As to the Diet itself.. it works very well
and weight loss is usually reached, but I have got the problem that - - as one reaches 'super OAP status' - - I have to be a little cautious, as elderly metabolism is not quite so efficient! I have found that when starting the 2nd month I ease up a little and do the Diet on alternate days. Over a period of months the weight does tend to creep back a little but I can correct that if necessary with a month on the Diet.. I lost a stone on my first Diet a couple of years ago and only need to keep an eye on a 'wandering' 4 or 5 lbs !!! The food itself is really quite tasty. It is all a matter of choice and one's own preferences of course and I have now got my favourites and coupled with the fact that the time spent over a hot stove is so minimal I am indeed a'Happy Ol' Biddy' !! Thank you Diet Chef.
I felt that the breakfasts were not filling in the least. The soups were fine for lunch but the pasta dishes were not tasty. I thought the main courses would have come with veg and potatoes but it was only the meat that was in the packet. All round it was very disappointing.
