Why Diet Chef really works...

Leave a Comment
If you are wondering how Diet Chef works, and why our meal plan is so effective, this blog post is for you.

We know from our customers' inspiring success stories, the feedback we get on social media, and our weekly, independent Trustpilot reviews that Diet Chef works a treat. We even have science on our our side, as our customers are clinically proven to lose 50% more weight than people on a self-directed diet.*

Around 120,000 people in the UK have tried our meal plan, and our dieters have a great track record - both for losing lots of weight and keeping it off long term! So what's the key to our success then? Well, there are several, actually.

Calorie & portion control

Diet Chef is designed to help you lose weight by providing a tasty and filling meal plan, where the calories are counted for you, and the portion sizes pre-determined. You get three meals and a snack from us each day, and add your own fruit, vegetables and a bit of dairy. This approach helps you establish and stick to new, healthier eating patterns, as well as encouraging you to add lots of fresh greens to your diet.

Everything in moderation

Being on a diet doesn't have to mean denying yourself comfort foods. Our meals, combined with your added daily fruit, vegetables, dairy and potential extras, provide a healthy, balanced and delicious diet. It's about eating everything in moderation, and including foods from all major food groups.

Delicious, real food

Unlike some other diets, we don't ask you to deprive yourself or survive on meal replacement products; you get to eat real, tasty food in appropriate portion sizes every day. We believe one of the keys to our success is the variety on our menu, and the fact that you are allowed "treaty" meals and snacks - like pasta, curries, cookies and pretzels - as part of the plan. Our meals are made up of natural ingredients, and real store cupboard ingredients. You wouldn't add anything artificial at home, such as flavourings, sweeteners or colourings – and neither do we. To find out more about our food, have a look at this recent blog post.

Convenience is king

One of our main selling points is how easy and convenient our plan is. We deliver your meals in monthly hampers, right to your door - all calorie counted, portion controlled and ready in just a few minutes. The snacks, lunchtime protein bars and some of the breakfasts are ready to eat - and all you have to do with the rest of the breakfasts, lunches and dinners is add some hot water / milk, or heat up in the microwave. Complement with your favourite fruit and vegetables plus a bit of dairy each day, and watch as the lbs start falling off! Perfect for busy people on the go, or those who need a little bit of extra structure and support. We also have a Calorie Guide, a Diet Guide and a Portion Guide, to help you get started.

In addition, customers can link their Diet Chef online account with a MyFitnessPal account, allowing them to track their progress effectively in one place – including total calories consumed daily and any physical activity and exercise undertaken.

Healthy weight loss

The Diet Chef meal plan is designed to help you lose a healthy, sustainable 1-2 lbs per week, in line with UK Government recommendation for safe weight loss. Of course, everyone is different, and some customers lose a lot more than that (especially when they first start the diet), whilst some people's progress is slower. If you are on the plan and your weight loss has slowed down or is grinding to a halt, have a look at this blog post.

Diet Chef really works

As we mentioned above, Diet Chef's effectiveness is clinically proven - but you don't need science to understand why the diet works. The meal plan is based on a calorie controlled diet, where you eat sensible portions regularly, adding lots of fresh vegetables and fruit. The snacks that you get (including a range of popcorn and oat biscuits) help stave off cravings, and the fact that the food is delivered to your door means that the time you have to spend in the supermarket, with all its tempting "naughty aisles", is reduced!

Customer success stories

Almost every day we hear from awesome customers, who have lost of weight on Diet Chef and want to share their story. We have lots of inspirational, real life tales of success on our website, and get a huge amount of encouraging feedback on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media pages as well! All customers are invited to publish completely independent reviews of Diet Chef on Trustpilot, and we are always open to constructive feedback and suggestions.
