Supermarket Chefs: Tesco 1200 Calories-a-day Easy Diet Plan

Supermarket Chefs: Tesco 1200 Calories-a-day Easy Diet Plan

By wlr's resident foodie Joanne Putney

This time the Supermarket Chefs Diet Plan is designed for people who shop at Tescos. This series of plans aims to provide the convenience of getting a diet food delivery service, at lower cost and with more control.

Incorporating a healthy selection of Tesco ready meals and single serving products, it's a quick and simple way to ease yourself into portion control whilst still getting a nutritionally balanced diet.

Price wise, this plan comes to just under £50. This is cheaper than most deliver-to-door diet plans.
