What You Should Know
BodyChef UK is a home diet delivery system available to residents of the United Kingdom. The company delivers fresh, calorie controlled meals to their customers twice a week. The meals are never frozen, so all the customer has to do is heat and eat. The guesswork is removed, so the customer can watch the pounds melt away without ever having to grocery shop or prepare a meal. Medical doctor Jane Ritchie developed the program in 2003, and since then thousands of people have been able to lose weight, as much as one stone in the first month alone.
List of Ingredients
New customers get a consultation with a BodyChef UK staff member to help determine their goals, food allergies, lifestyle, and all other necessary information to help them choose a meal plan. There are seven different plans available based on customers needs and desires. The plans include: Premiere, Vegetarian, Detox, Low Glycemic Index, Super Foods, Flat Belly, and Lower Carb. The Premiere Plan is for those who want to eat meat, and comes in either a 1200 or 1600 calorie per day option. The Vegetarian Plan is for those who do not want to eat meat and comes in either a 1200 or 1600 calorie per day option. The Detox Plan is based on the “Skinny Bitch” book and is only 1000 calories per day. The Low Glycemic Index Plan focuses on lower blood sugar levels, so it is only 1350 calories per day. The Super Foods plan is based on high nutrient foods, and is available in either 1200 or 1600 calorie options. The Flat Belly Plan starts with Detox and then allows dieters to eat 1600 calories per day. The Low Carb Plan is as the name describes, and is available in either a 1200 or 1600 calorie per day option. The plans are available for 3, 4, 5, 7 days, and include everything you need for all meals, including condiments. Prices vary based on the options chosen, but you should plan on paying at least 48 pounds for the three day plan. Delivery fees are included, but if you live outside of the standard delivery area, additional fees will apply.
