Diet Chef 5:2 Total Diet Replacements - 400467
happyange and tickers : thank you ! Reading through the comments with 4- and 5- stars, I was beginning to think I was alone in my view of this product.
If I may explain, we started the 5:2 Diet early this year and have lost almost 2st each gradually over the last 8 months. However, we were concerned that our fasting days weren't really matching Mosely's suggestions. Along came this product, so we decided to give it a try - mainly to correct our quantity errors but hopefully to simplify the process and meal choice.
I won't dwell on each meal but rather just say that the snacks and soups were fine .... but the main meals were poor and by the time we got to the chicken couscous we'd had enough ! Yes, it was cold but the colour (grey) and the texture/flavour ? In a word - revolting !
Sorry, QVC but this product is well below the standard I'd expect.
To those of you contemplating this 5:2 Diet, I would encourage you to stick with the (original) plan as your main strategy and think of this type of product as a minor, convenient add-on. As for this particular product - forget it ! The producers should have a huge re-think.
Thankfully, I have successfully applied for a Refund for the 2 packs we bought.

OK but the snacks taste very cardboardy! The soups are lovely. The meals are awful and to have to eat them cold! The bars etc are fine but I feel like a budgie!
This is OK for people who diet as you would get used to this type of food. I never have had to so it tastes awful to me. Will try my own 5:2 diet

I bought the 5:2 diet pack last month as I was quite interested in the theory of eating normally for five days and fasting for two. As long as you can recognise the danger areas ie of whe you are at your hungriest and plan the snacks you get around this this systems worked very well for me. I have lost 5lb so far in three weeks. I have enjoyed enverything so far and would like to try a "full on" diet by diet chef, maybe when it comes on a s a tsv on easy pay?

Diet Chef Makes Loosing Weight So Much Easier
I have ordered this on AD, as I had started the 5-2 before this was aired on QVC, this was perfect for me as on my none fasting days I was eating mostly 'Diet Chef' along with treats, and it was working for me, I have lost a stone in just over a month.
The first 2 fasting days I did struggle, but now my body is use to it and now I don't get hungry until about 3 o'clock on fasting days, the weight loss gives me lots of motivation.
This pack of diet chef has made fasting days so easy in fact it fills me so much with fizzy water I don't need the snack, it really is a treat.
I really do recommend this pack, compared to weighing food and reading the back of packs etc,
Thank you diet chef and QVC x
