After last weeks post on Weightloss Inspiration I have been researching diets and weightloss plans. If you are reading this and you are female, then I would guess you already know there are about a million diets out there. No exaggeration.
Of course the word ‘diet’ simply means the food you eat, so really what we are talking about here are weightloss plans. One that caught my eye was Weight To Go (link), a plan that combines shakes, soups and real food, all prepared and delivered to your door. It sounded like the perfect plan; like a combination of parts of other diets I’d tried and rolling them into one. After a bit of persuasion they offered me a weeks worth of the plan to trial, so here’s what day one had to offer.
So in the average day you have a shake for breakfast, a soup for lunch, a shake mid afternoon, a packet dinner and a final shake in the evening which are all included. On top of which you add a portion of fruit each day and 80g of vegetables. Twice a week you can also have a snack bar as a treat or when you need the extra calories for energy or before/after exercise.
It is also recommended you walk for 30 minutes each day, cut out alcohol and milk. Milk! I will admit right now I am already ‘cheating’ and not cutting it out. I only drink decaf tea with a tiny splash of skimmed milk as it is, so the calorie increase is minimal. However, I can understand that you’re not recommended to have it as even having semi-skimmed milk can run into hundreds of extra calories. But no, weight to go, I will be keeping my skimmed and keeping my extra 50 calories a day. Other than tea and coffee you can have diet drinks and of course water, and as I don’t drink alcohol a lot, so far it hasn’t caused me any huge changes.
So far I have tried a strawberry shake which smelled amazing like a mixture between angel delight and candy floss but was incredibly sweet and perhaps an acquired taste, a vanilla shake which I mixed with coffee to create a latte which tasted lovely and a chocolate shake which I turned into a pudding by adding less water. Day one of course, brought hunger. It is a lot less calories than I am used to so it’s to be expected but I didn’t feel at any point that I was so hungry I was tempted to stray from the designated food. The meals I’ve tried so far has been tasty and easy to prepare. Check back tomorrow for another update!
