Does the Body Chef diet plan work?
I have just completed a week on the Body chef flat belly diet and the results are in. After following the plan for 7 days I have lost 3lbs, 2 inches off my waist and 2 inches from around my hips. I am very happy with these results. The best bit, however, is I no longer resemble a dancing caterpillar whilst trying to get into my skinny jeans.
The results are not massive but this isn’t about loosing masses of weight in a short space of time it is about changing your eating habits and mindset so that you can maintain it long term. Therefore, for me, the Body Chef diet plan does work and I would recommend it.
Benefit of the Body Chef
When I started this journey the ultimate goal was to lose some weight but so much more has happened. I have a smaller appetite, I am enjoying healthier foods and the thought of greasy, fried foods don’t even appeal to me anymore. I somehow seem to have been re-educated about the value of food, what is required by the body and the difference between good fats and bad without sitting through a single lesson. More importantly I have given up white bread without even trying (or noticing till day 5!) and have broken the habit of reaching for snacks in the day and wine in the evening. I am really thinking about everything that I eat and drink now and I feel positive about making serious lifestyle changes.
This week has also given me plenty of healthy meal ideas that I can now continue to replicate at home to try and maintain the weight loss, making me feel like this is an investment, not just a diet that will only work whilst I pay the fee and follow it to the letter.
Who should try the Body Chef diet?
This plan is a brilliant kick start for any lazy dieter who needs to re-evaluate their eating habits but, like me, can’t stick to a no carb, sugar free, juice only diet for more than 24 hours. Passing over the stress of planning and preparing healthy meals to someone else makes it so much easier to follow and reduces temptation. Lets face it, if all you have to do is eat the food with the correct day and meal time on it, it makes life a lot more simple.
I would highly recommend this diet as a kick start or to be carried out on the run up to a big event such as a wedding or a beach holiday as it produces fast result without making you feel starved, stressed or deprived.
What are the meals like?
I have enjoyed many meals throughout the week but my favourites have to include the peanut butter on toast, salmon and avocado salad and chocolate pudding. Even now I can’t fully understand how I have lost weight eating these foods but I do feel confident that I can continue with a diet similar to this. All the food was fresh, good quality and large portions and there are plenty of plans to choose from.
Ultimately a diet like this is not cheap and if you still have a partner and children to feed it is going to seriously increase the cost of your food bill. If, however, you live alone or have the spare income to complete a diet like this then I must say I feel it was good value for money.
