In theory, losing weight should be easy – eat fewer calories than you burn. But in practice most of us know that it’s really difficult to lose weight and requires a combination of the right food and portion size, with lots of focus and determination to succeed, particularly in terms of establishing new habits and breaking old bad ones.
If you want to lose weight then you may have tried a calorie controlled diet, one of the well known diet plans or joined a weight loss club.
More recently, there has been sharp growth a new type of healthy eating / weight loss programme in the form of meal delivery services. These offer convenient and healthy meals that are either fully prepared, or raw ingredients that come with detailed menus to follow so you can make your own nutritious meals. But do they work?
Celebrities such as Michael McIntyre reckon they do, according to a recent Daily Mail article. Having lost weight in the past, and like many of us put it back on, he turned to a specialist diet delivery service to help him lose weight by having 3 healthy meals delivered to his door each day. Plus he has cut out carbohydrates and alcohol.
Other celebrities such as Gabby Logan, Caroline Flack and Kirsty Gallagher also use meal delivery services and find they work from both a convenience and health perspective.
Do you use a meal delivery service or have you tried one? What do you think of the meals / ingredients? Did you feel the service offered value for money?
