Ok, so if you want to give one of the many many speedy diets on the market a go why you may as well give the Fast Diet Kitchen a try.
The Fast Diet Kitchen produce ready meals based on the popular 5:2 diet – where you eat normally for five days and then ‘fast’ for two, consuming just 500 calories for women and 600 for men.
What is it?
Fast Diet Kitchen’s very low-calorie meals are designed for Fast Dieters’ fast days. After ordering from their website, meals are delivered to your door, and can be stored for up to six months before being heated in the microwave or on the hob.
What is it like?
There are 22 options; 11 soups and 11 mains, a mix of casseroles, curries, risotto, couscous and chilli-based dishes.
Laura Wurzal who gave the range a go said: “The wide choice means I didn’t get bored and looked forward to all of them. My favourite soups were the Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato (so creamy), Garden Pea & Mint (loved the contrast of sweet peas and tangy mint), Scotch Broth (with a generous amount of chunky beef, vegetables and pearl barley) and the Hearty 3 Bean Soup.
“My top mains were the Beef & Ale Casserole, Aromatic Chicken Curry and Vegetable Casserole.
“With generous amounts of meat and a wide variety of veg, all were filling, tasty and easy to prepare – and the handy pouches, which you can pop in the microwave, were ideal for taking to work.
“Knowing the calorie-counting has been done for you makes sticking to your fast days so much simpler.”
Three, six and 12-week plans available, starting from £36 (£6 per day). Special offers often advertised on their Facebook page www.facebook.com/fastdietkitchen
