DGWGO’s Lara Blown Away With results of The Dietarian 5:2 Meal Plan

Last month Lara from team DGWGO trialed The Dietarian 5:2 Meal plan for 1 month. The Dietarian is a business based in Moffat, Dumfries and Galloway and is ran by husband and wife team Lee and Claire Prentice.

Lara was blown away with the weight loss she managed to achieve in just 4 weeks of the meal plan and she loved the convenience and how everything was so straightforward.

Lara Said “Having recently completed a month of the Dietarian 5:2 diet I can honestly say it was an absolute pleasure to follow.  Not only did I eat a delicious and nutritious array of wholesome foods I now fit back into clothes that had been somewhat snug and all this with very little effort on my part.  The plan consists of food for 5 days 2 of which are “fasting days” where you are given roughly around 800 calories’ worth of food, this allows your body to use up store fat for fuel.
The bonus points of this plan are endless!  To name but a few; no traipsing around the supermarket scouring the shelves looking for inspiration of what to have to eat, no time spent peeling, chopping or cooking!  Everything is done for you, all you need to do is plate it and heat it … easy peasy!!
My journey started with Lee taking all my measurements and logging them for the comparison after completion 4 weeks later.

My delicious box of delights arrived beautifully presented and efficiently packaged to ensure freshness.  Every single item in the box is boxed and labelled and ready to pop into your allocated bag and you only eat what is in the bag.  You have a menu that tells you what you get each day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
I was eager to get started however was anxious about how hungry I would be and without any elaboration of the truth I only felt true hunger on 2 days the whole month and there were many times I had to force myself to finish the contents of my daily bag.
The meals I had were very delicious and full of all the right stuff to keep me fuller for longer.  I did have a little treat on some days as I have a very sweet tooth so the odd little chocolate jumped into my mouth.  At the weekends I did indulge a bit but was still very mindful of what I was eating as I didn’t want to undo all the good work of the previous week.
There were many culinary highlights for me and the chicken and lentil curry soup and Thai Panang curry spring to mind immediately as does the super sweet rhubarb and custard pudding on my very first night.  What I particularly loved and appreciated so much was the fact that I didn’t have to think about anything, I didn’t have to forward plan and prepare packed lunches to take to work it was all ready and done for me.
Before I knew it the 4 weeks were over and it was time for my results.  Once again Lee did all my measurements and the before and after figures were astounding!! 11.5lbs gone!! Just over 7lbs of that was pure fat, my waist had shrunk by 4cm.  I felt amazing, trim and super healthy.  Now I am back to my regular life planning meals, grocery shopping, peeling, chopping and cooking and I miss The Dietarian ………… oh how I miss it!!
