I’ve always thought I’d make an amazing Victoria Secret model. That is, of course, if I could stop planning my next meal before the one I’m eating is finished.
What can I say; I love food. Who are we kidding, we all love food. Food is the one.
What’s the diet?
Each week you’re sent seven days’ worth of meals: two meals a day and a ‘sweet bite’ (usually a little Vegan brownie or some sort of flapjack). They suggest that you supplement it with fruit and nuts, but to be honest the meals are that filling you really don’t have to.
Did it work?
Would I do it again?
Definitely. Having tried every fad diet out there, from juicing to T6’s (don’t go near them girls!) this is the first time I’ve tried something that’s allowed me to eat and still lose weight.
Full disclosure: I cheated once in the third week after getting bladdered on Seel Street and eating a very questionable looking portion of cheesy chips that was definitely not prepared in a vegan-friendly environment. Whilst 80% of the food is actually really tasty, (obviously there’s a few wildcards that I thought were vile, but that’s to be expected) by the third week I was pining for a decent cuppa and a chocolate hobnob.
For me, the only problem was that 22 days can be quite restrictive when it comes to socialising or eating out. But, to be honest, after two weeks I’d already lost 7lbs and I felt amazing. So, next time, (unless I was doing it to get beach ready or for a special event) I’d probably be strict for two weeks then incorporate the rest of the meals into my normal life.
Until next time… x
