Doing the 5:2 diet with The Fast Diet Kitchen

So, I'm trying a new diet. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of diet plans - we all know that it's all about healthy eating and exercise. But after going on holiday and just not paying attention to what I've been eating I feel like a need a giant kick up the arse and a big dollop of motivation.

Last year I had a pretty good experience on the 5:2 diet and lost about 3/4 a stone. But here's my problem with diets in general. I like food. Unfortunately, I just don't find starving myself a pleasurable experience. And if I did, let's face it, I wouldn't need to go on a diet.

I've just finished my first week on the 5:2 diet with The Fast Diet Kitchen* and thought I'd share my thoughts with you. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of meals available. There's loads for veggies which makes a nice change and even though I do eat meat, I'm not a huge fan. So far I've tried the butternut squash and sweet potato soup, the scotch broth soup and the spicy vegetable cous cous which all tasted really good! They tasted like tasty food rather than the pre- prepared pap you might actually expect.

All of the meals can be zapped in the microwave which means everything is really easy to prepare. I've been cooking my soup and taking it to work in a flask. You can also have snacks, which I'll be honest I've really needed. The first week was tough. Yes, I was hangry but that banana meant that my colleagues and friends have made it out alive. I'll keep you posted with my progress, hopefully it'll get me on the straight and narrow. I'd really like to wear skinny jeans and knee books this winter without having to worry about fat knees. That's the goal folks!

The Fast Diet Kitchen is available from Ideal World
