Erin's Diet Chef Story
I’m 39 years old and married with two little boys. Originally from Canada and I now live in Windsor. Like most mums-to-be I gained some weight during my second pregnancy. I was also running my own business, a parenting consultancy which is all about helping mums with stress-free parenting technique.
I was keen to find a diet that would fit into my busy lifestyle and not demand lots of time planning, calorie counting and cooking. I saw an advert for Diet Chef on TV and thought it was the way to lose weight that I was looking for. Diet Chef was perfect for me because it’s so much about eating the right food rather than doing exercise, and after my second son, I don’t have time to work out as much.
The programme is so easy and it fits in with my lifestyle. I’m so busy with business and of course I now have two children. My consultancy is all about find stress-free solutions in life and that’s what Diet Chef is!
The only thing that I worried about was that the fact that Diet Chef allowed me to have pasta and rice, which I love. But learning about portion control meant I ate the right amount of carbs without gaining weight. I loved the covenience too – just take your meal out of the box, add the rice and you’re ready. And everything tastes fresh and natural, whether it Paella or Chicken Tikka Masala.
When I started Diet Chef I was a dress size 16 and weighed 10st 11lbs. After three months I was wearing size 12 clothes and weighed 9st 2lbs.
Life has changed for the better and that’s really great. I can finally get into the clothes I want to wear and show who I am. That means a lot to me, especially in my work, when I got out and speak to mothers all over the world, and I have to present a confident image. I wasn’t shy before, but thanks to Diet Chef I’m really, really in my groove.
