Delivered Diet Food: Wiltshire Farm Foods
By WLR's Site Manager, Laurence Beeken
Wiltshire Farm food do not offer a specific diet delivery, they are instead more like a modern day meals on wheels.
What they do offer however is ready meals where the portion sizes are controlled, so this does mean that it can be used to help weight management or achieve weight loss goals.
The site works differently to the other programmes in that you can buy meals individually just like your normal shop. You are not tied in to a specific number of days or weeks, you just order the food for delivery to suit your diet.
If you want your food delivered, Wiltshire Farm Foods offer over 300 meals with prices starting at £1 for breakfast and main meals for £2.90, Wiltshire Farm Foods are one of the cheaper food delivery services.
There is no minimum order and delivery is free to the UK Mainland.

Why not take a free trial and see how you can lose weight and control your own meals.
Although not specifically designed for weight loss, a Wiltshire Farm food delivery can be used to shift the pounds quite effectively.
By delivering frozen ready meals that are nutritionally balanced and also already calorie counted it makes sticking to a low calorie dinner easier.
If evenings are your downfall and you struggle not to order a takeaway, a tasty ready meal that only needs to be heated up could be just the answer.
Also if eating out at lunch is piling on the pounds, then you can enjoy one of the 'mini meals' just by popping it in the microwave.
There is a good range of diet meals that can be delivered, all broken down into types such as beef, pork, lamb meals etc.
Recently, new options have been added such as:
- Low fat
- Low sugar
- Low salt
- Gluten free
- Dairy free
- Softer Foods range (puree meals).
Whiltshire Farm Foods do advertise that pre-packaged frozen meals offer instant portion control and so are extremely helpful to those who are on calorie counting diets, or for people that have trouble with portion sizes.
If portion control is the problem, they offer:
- Mini Meals 180-220g
- Main Meals: 275-465g
- Hearty Meals: 500-565g
The diet delivery meals are not advertised as a calorie counting service, just that it ‘could’ be useful for those watching their weight.
If you are using the delivered diet food to manage your weight, then you will find that some of the meals are each less than 320 calories per portion, while some of the desserts are less than 75.
Breakfast delivery choices are limited, with only 3 to chose from, so you would be better off substituting your own and adding the calories to the day.
|Sweet & Sour Chicken Mini Meal||Plaice in Breadcrumbs||Pineapple Upside Down Cake|
|Steak & Kidney Pie Mini Meal||Pork Steak with Brandy & Apple Sauce||Summer Fruits & Custard|
|Vegetable Soup||Butternut Squash & Butterbean Stew||Plum & Cherry Crumble|
As well as being able to order meals individually, there are also 7 day packs avliable from £19.99, however these only include dinners.
Support is limited and there is no specific diet advice as Wiltshire Farm Foods are purely a food delivery service.
A taster pack is available at £19.98 and there is no tie in, you simply order what you need.
There are a lot of meals that come in around 300-400 calories, plus their ‘mini meals’ that would make great lunches.
Add in a low cal breakfast and snacks and it would be possible to lose weight.
You could use Wiltshire Farm Foods to plan your diet. Each meal has nutritional information on the site so you’ll be able to plan in advance.
That said, there is no food or exercise diary to use so keeping track of exercise, meals and any snacks you have might prove difficult and without an exercise diary you can't add in any calories you might earn for getting active.
Wiltshire Farm Foods make no claims to how much you could lose, just that they offer low calorie counted meals.
If you work out your calorie allowance on wlr, you'll be able to see how many calories you should have to lose weight at a reasonable rate for you.
If you have enough will power to just stick to what is sent to you and add snacks, then you should lose weight. Without a food diary however, you cannot monitor any ‘extras’. You basically just buy the meals and add what you want to them.
The relatively low cost and variety means that you could order for the whole family as there appears to be something for everyone on the site.
As always, it’s a reduction in calories that will shift those pounds. Wiltshire Farm Foods is just another way to do this and might suit you if you can afford the cost of the diet delivery meals.
Ultimately, it’s just as easy – and much cheaper – to follow a 1,200-1,400 calorie diet based on foods from the four main food groups, and eat the things that you enjoy!
