We do appreciate that £185 a month is a no small sum of money for many people, and we accept that Diet Chef is not necessarily going to be a good fit for everyone’s budget.
That said, according the Office for National Statistics, the average UK consumer spends £73 a week on food, booze, takeaways and snacks, so we do think that Diet Chef delivers excellent value for money.
Let’s look at the numbers…On our 12 week plan you get 28 days of food for £185…that works out £46.25 a week, or just £6.61 per day, for a breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack.
To put that into context, here are some other things that will cost you roughly the same as a day of Diet Chef food:
1 supermarket lunchtime ‘meal deal’ and a takeaway latte
1 Burger King Double Whopper meal
1 portion of fish & chips
1.5 pints of lager
1 bottle of wine
0.5 large takeaway pizza
If you are someone who buys lunch, chocolate, cans of soda, coffees or other snacks whilst out and about, it quickly adds up. Just a couple of pub visits could easily amount to an entire week worth of Diet Chef food!
What you get on Diet Chef…We provide three meals and a snack per day – all calorie counted, portion controlled and ready in just a few minutes. You simply add a few 'extras', like fruit, vegetables and a bit of dairy, then enjoy.
However, on Diet Chef you are getting more than just food. We know from the feedback we receive that many of our customers lack time, kitchen confidence or motivation and willpower, when it comes to devising and executing a healthy eating plan. Typically, they have tried every diet and healthy eating regime under the sun, but not had any lasting success.
For many, breaking bad eating habits and changing their relationship with food is a huge, daunting task. If you feel able to take the challenge on your own, then that's great! But there are lots of people out there who need a little bit of additional guidance and support to get started.
Convenience, structure, portion control…Diet Chef can give people who are losing the battle against the budge the initial structure and confidence boost they need, by making weight loss as easy as possible. We also remove some of the exposure to bad food temptations, like the "naughty aisles" in the supermarket.
Our meal plan is designed to facilitate a healthy, sustainable weight loss of 1-2 lbs per week, in line with UK Government guidelines. Our customers get to enjoy a range of proper, tasty and filling meals, with minimal preparation work or planning required, whilst learning what a balanced diet and normal portion sizes look like.
