Having left things for a few days to allow Dietchef to respond, let's get you up to date with the food plan.

I have been keeping a score of the meals provided in terms of taste - I will reveal that at the end. For now let me say simply that the majority of it is excellent, some of it is just pretty good and only one or two items have been just ok.

We tried to carry on keeping to the exact plan set out by the Dietchef manual, but with such a low calorie count, it was absolutely impossible. Even after I added in over 600 calories per day, I was only getting 1500 per day.

Whether it was psychological or not I do not know, but I have been feeling very hungry since day 2. So from day 4 onwards, we decided to ignore the manual and just ensure that we took in the recommended number of calories per day. For me this means adding a massive 950 calories per day to the plan.

My friend - depsite not being a personal trainer, but in fact what Sarika from Dietchef describes as an "average overweight person who perhaps does not exercise enough" still needs to add an incredible 1100 calories top her plan to get the right amount.

We decided to keep to the plan. Having to add so many calories makes this a really hard plan for my friend as she needs to think so hard about what to have. We agreed that she would have

The food provided by Dietchef

  • Approx 650 Kcal

The recommended additions: -

  • Half a pint of milk (95 Kcal)
  • 2 Portions of fruit (around 150-200 Kcal)
  • 1 Portion Veg (30-50 Kcal)

Another 600 calories as expected as she needs 1800 not 1200

  • 4 slices bread (400 Kcal)
  • 2 Yoghurts (200 Kcal)

And a further 250 calories because the plan is way under

  • An extra portion of veg (50 Kcal)
  • An extra yoghurt (100 Kcal)
  • An extra slice of bread (100 Kcal)

This is not too hard to work out, but does require far more thought than we had hoped from a plan that promises to deliver all your requirement in one convenient hamper.
