Tesco Diet is definitely the easiest diet I have ever done [and that is many over a life time], as each week's menu is planned for you and meals/items can be swapped if you do not like something and I have only eaten the diet, no extras, as don't feel hungry. The shopping list is a great help and when you get to know the sort of things on the menus shopping is easy. In the beginning I did find the diet quite a lot of food but can now manage it easily and have lost just over a stone in a few weeks, even in my late 60's, when I had thought the weight wouldn't come off as easily. Other benefits are my nails are stronger and my hair shines and I generally feel great with lots of energy. I have osteoarthritis and was on the knee pathway to have a knee replacement but upon attending the Consultant at the Hospital last week it seems things have improved and hopefully I won't have to go ahead with the major surgery.
At first the Tesco Diet site takes a little getting used to but once you have the hang of it you're away and there is loads of back-up and encouragement from all the helpful mentors. The cost is minimal and you don't have to attend a class each week but it is best to be honest with yourself when weighing in once a week.
Anyone who thinks they cannot lose weight on this are not trying very hard as I had a week away after Easter and although I put on a little weight, soon lost it and more when I came back so no excuses! I feel absolutely delighted as I can wear my summer clothes with pride.
My weight had gradually increased when my daughter was unwell over the last 2/3 years and my clothes were at bursting point and my osteoarthritis was giving me lots of pain. I would not buy new clothes, so had an incentive to lose weight this year and gain control of my life again. I can honestly say I now look forward to the summer.
I hope this will inspire others to join and lose weight, especially those who are not feeling tip top as being in good shape helps in every way.
Good luck to all those who join.
