WARNING: Far fewer calories than advertised.

Unlike some other reviewers I found the food acceptable. However, having paid for the 1500 calorie hamper I was astonished to find that the calorific value of the food supplied was less than 900 calories per day. Adding the recommended extras of milk, fruit and vegetables only brought the daily average total calories to less than 1100 per day. Just to bring my daily intake up to the advertised total therefore, I have add another 400 calories of food. This involves extra expense, and a fair bit of calorie counting - something which their advertising says you don't have to do.

Not having to calorie count was the main attraction for me for me so I feel completely let down on that one.

Even the weekly sample menu in their booklet only adds up to 1000 calories per day, including extras. This could be dangerous - experts recommend that nobody should consume less than 1200 calories a day because it can be damaging to health.
If I have to calorie count I might as well design my own program using more tasty prepared meals from the supermarket - there is a great choice available, I give this offering only one star for seriously misleading advertising.

In summary, I would not recommend Diet Chef to a friend.

Went for the special offer, for a week's food from diet chef, for half price.
When I received the box,I was struck at how unappetising the food looked. All longlife sachets.The sachets contained tiny portions of very processed tasting food. Quite inedible.

I've learnt the lesson the hard way. You can get much nicer and cheaper diet food from M and S or any other high quality supermarket, with exactly the same calories or less, or cook your own. The only convenience is that it's delivered to your door. But you can do that anyway, with most supermarkets.Don't bother -disgusting.

In summary, I would not recommend Diet Chef to a friend.

Diet Chef - Working for me and my husband

After trying a number of diets - and my husband's weight increasing and thus his snoring - we have both signed up to Diet Chef. We've lost half a stone so far (five weeks) and are quite pleased.

Don't be too put off by the outlay. We've saved money with less take aways and buying shopping that we don't get round to cooking and thus we've stopped throwing money away. If you use this voucher MYECE@GK you'll get £10 off at the checkout.

We've also saved time - it's very quick. Most meals 3 minutes so perfect after a long day at work.

We've envitably liked some meals more than others but it's easy to make changes in the website to your next order.

Neither of us have felt particular hungry except when meals are due although we weren't sure when we saw the size of the meals. It's certainly teaching us something about portion control.

Would recommend Diet Chef.

In summary, I would recommend Diet Chef to a friend.

I ordered my first weekly hamper last thursday as i wanted to try the food first befor spending loads and not liking it. i recieved it yesterday and started today with my first choc chip porridge...and was impressed it tasted delitious and was really full by the end of it. lunchtime came and i tried the thai chicken soup and wasnt as impressed only had a few spoonfulls and threw the rest down the sink so now im starving and dinner isnt for another 3 hours lol. ive phoned them up and im sending back the soup to change it. just hoping dinner tastes nice or im not going to manage to keep this up !

In summary, I would recommend Diet Chef to a friend.

Hey guys, I'm on diet chef two weeks tomorrow, n I've lost 8 pound. I'm so shocked.. I didn even feel hungry. The food is lovely apart from mushroom stroganoff, it's not my cup of tea! But all in all I think it's a good programme so far so good. Anybody new trying. Put in this coupon code MYDHGCHH

andn you will get 20% off at dietchef.co.uk :) I don't have a lot of weight to lose, feel like my goal weight is not far away. Good luck to anyone trying the programme

In summary, I would recommend Diet Chef to a friend.
