When Dietbon, the creators of diet ready-made meals got in touch for me to review a weeks worth of meals I jumped at the chance. Those of you who know me know that I am always looking for some way to shift the unwanted poundage. I proclaim to be body confident but if I was given a magic wand for weight loss I would take it.
Dietbon is a French company that deliver to the UK, meaning that every meal for one whole week is prepacked and sent to your door. 4 meals for 6 days including snacks – day 7 is a day about learning to cook healthily for yourself.
The great thing about it too is that you get to go through you goals and options with a dietitian. I had a phone call where we discussed exactly what I wanted from the programme. It was good to know that they are only at the end of the phone should I have needed help during the process too. They tailor the plan to suit your needs and it is a calorie counting based system. You can add fresh fruit and vegetables to your diet during the week but that is all you need to add. I didn’t need any additional help as it is all pretty straight forward but its good to know the support system is there.
Overall I really enjoyed all of the meals, the menus are all in French but even with a little basic school knowledge you can figure it out which was fun….there is of course English translation on each meal but the kids thought it was great that I had retained a little knowledge from school. I didn’t feel the need to add anything extra to the meals. Considering they are all cooked in the microwave in 2 minutes it felt as though I had more time to do other things too.
To be honest with ready meals I generally feel as though they are tasteless and don’t really fill me up. These were completely different! All of the ingredients used are 100% natural and the flavours were bursting in each meal. I was full after each meal and even skipped having one of the lemon cakes for dessert on a few occasions.
I am also delighted to be able to offer my readers a 15% discount and a free 28 day Morning & Night detox tea cure simply by using the code WELCOME at checkout. Please use this link : http://bit.ly/db-countryheartandhome
Having lost 2.5lb during my week I would highly recommend Dietbon if you are looking for a plan that is easy to follow and something that will take the hassle out of trying to lose weight.
I was sent one week food plan for the purpose of this review, all views and opinions are my own and genuine.
