Supermarket Chefs: Waitrose Diet Plan

Diet plan based on healthy ready meals and single serving foods, a quick and simple way to ease yourself into portion control with a calorie balanced diet

Supermarket Chefs: Morrisons Diet Plan

Continuing our series of easy to follow Supermarket Chefs diet plans, here's our plan for Morrisons.

The plan averages 1200 calories a day, is well balanced and includes low calorie treats and snacks as well as plenty of fruit and veg.

The benefits of these plans are convenience, portion control, and the fact that you don’t have to think about what you’re going to eat.

Ideal if you’re busy, or not keen on cooking after a long day, the plan uses ready meals for dinners, and quick lunches like sandwiches and soup.

This plan is meant for people who want to lose weight, and contains around 1200 calories a day which, for most people, will produce a weight loss of around 2lbs a week.*
