In the run up to my wedding I was so manic that I ended up on first name terms with my local pizza delivery company. With friends dropping by with bottles of Champagne in the final countdown, last minute juggles to the table plan and endlessly writing out name cards, the last thing I could think about was shopping, chopping and cooking, let alone keeping to a strict diet plan. I wish I had known about Bodychef then! Rather than the pizza man, Bodychef would have delivered me healthy, nutritious meals that required no thinking about on my side, plus at the same time I would have slimmed down effortlessly for the big day and honeymoon. So at the end of my two week trial, how does it feel? Well absolutely brilliant to be 6lbs lighter! The menu also varied daily throughout the two weeks, so I was never bored or eating the same meal twice. I learnt a lot amount about portion sizes, one of the biggest challenges when it comes to big day weight loss, and was amazed at how satisfied I was on my 1,200 calories a day. Although by the end of the second week I was craving a night out, but Bodychef has all bases covered so you can choose a three, five or seven day plan according to how busy you are and how much you'd like to lose (or whether you want the weekends off!). There are also low GI, low carb, detox or veggie options. Whatever your plan you can rely on them to do all the thinking, chopping and cooking, so you can sit back, enjoy and concentrate on the important things - like not sitting any exes together! So for a sensible, affordable way to fit in your dress, I'd say try Bodychef - good luck and enjoy! Find out more at
