After being overweight for most of my life, (and I am 43 next week), I decided to give a structured diet a go. My problem since childhood had always been a sweet tooth and in later life a tendency to snack on junkfood left me overweight. In January at 14stone 2lbs I decided enough was enough. I am a father to 2 boys (7 and 1) and didnt want to be the fat dad who was too overweight to join in sporty activities with them.
I had lost weight in the past but it was normally just before going on holiday and once I had overconsumed the weight would just go back on. This time I decided it would be different. When I joined Tesco Diets and received my first meal plan I was pleasantly surprised that the choice of food was quite substantial and it actually seemed that I could eat quite alot of food. The difference was that I could eats lots of the right food instead of lots of the wrong food, as had been the problem in the past. I chose the GI diet as this was geared around filling you up for longer.
After losing 4lbs in the first week I was on a high and when this was coupled with losing 3lbs the second week I knew that I was onto a winner. From then on I lost between 1lb and 2lbs a week and reached my target weight of 12stone after about 5 months. My worry was that the weight would gradually creep back on but for the past 7 weeks my weight has stayed the same.
The best thing that this diet has taught me is that I now know what are the right things to eat.
The online diet plans were so easy to follow, and it was great that you could substitute any foods which you either didnt like or didnt want to eat.
I have now gone out and bought a complete new wardrobe of clothes and have gone from wearing baggy tops to actually now having a better choice of clothes to wear.
I have also had the pleasure of meeting some of the Tesco Diets team when I was invited to a recent photoshoot and I can certainly say they were such nice people. The whole experience of Tesco Diets has been quite fantastic and I can only praise it.
I am so looking forward to having the health and fitness that I am going to need as my 2 boys become older. Thank You Tesco Diets
