Dietbon Diet Ready-made Meals - How does it work?

Monday 4 February 2019

A few weeks prior to Christmas I was contacted by a Company called Dietbon and asked if I would like to try their Diet Ready-made Meals program out for a week.  I said that I would be interested in the new year, afterall, Christmas is not the right time to try out a diet plan.

After captivating France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Spain, Dietbon is coming to the UK! The Dietbon plan consists of a gourmet, calorie-controlled home delivery service, with 4 meals a day, for 6 days a week. This allows for a person to lose weight without feeling hungry or frustrated. Support is also provided in the form of telephone consultations and online meetings from a team of dieticians. Most customers tend to lose up to a healthy 2 pounds a week.

Before I even started the plan I had a telephone consultation with one of their dieticians who answered any questions I might have prior to beginning my week.

I was sent everything I needed with the exception of dairy and fresh fruit/veg for six days, including 12 main courses, 6 breakfasts, 6 snacks, 6 desserts and 28 Day Detox Tea ‘’Morning & Night”.  there was also a really in depth guide to the program included along with extra recipes for you to cook for yourself on your "Free" day.  I purchased fresh vegetables and fruits for snacks and additions to the regular meals along with some fat and sugar free yogurts.   As for the meals themselves, you can choose for yourself what appeals to your own tastes, and requirements.  The dishes are all 100% natural, containing no additives, preservatives or colourings, and without any GM ingredients, artificial sweeteners or palm oils.

For breakfast each day I enjoyed a lovely cup of their Vitalize tea along with some pancakes and some fruit.  I really loved these herbal teas.  (They were also in silk bags.) 

The pancakes taste not unlike any other storebought pancake that you can buy and came in single serving packets.  They were quite nice.

For my mid morning snack I enjoyed some of their tasty chocolate chip cookies and a small glass of skimmed milk.  I really liked these cookies.


Lunches and suppers consisted of one of their Diet Ready-made Meals along with a salad or vegetable of my own choice. 

This was the Chicken with Lemon and Thyme and baby vegetables.  It was really quite delicious.  I actually had no complaints about the flavour of any of their meals.  


One of my favourites was the Mexican Meatballs with pasta, vegetables and Tomato Sauce.  I enjoyed that along with some of their applesauce dessert.   The meals are literally ready in minutes and are all heatable in the microwave, and I found them to be really quite delicious!  

Unfortunately by about day 4 my Diverticulitis kicked in and I had to stop, as I was in quite a lot of pain.  I do have to say however, that this is not representative of most people's experience in using this diet plan.  For me, I don't think I was able to tolerate the high quantities of legumes/peas, etc.  I really do need to be careful with these things because I do suffer if I am not. 

Even so I did manage to lose 2 1/2 pounds during that week, which I was really pleased about, and I did learn a lot about portion sizes, etc.  I thought it was easy to stick too and the food was really tasty.  It didn't really feel like a diet.  There was no calorie counting, or figuring out what to combine with what. It was quite simple really, and I wasn't starving, like you can be on some other plans.  I felt that it was quite maintainable, especially in the long term. 

If you would be interested in trying it out for yourselves, I have a special promo-code which can give you a 20% discount on a 1, 2 or 3 months Diet plan.  Just use the code  KITCHENDB at the checkout.  

I would like to thank the people at Dietbon for affording me the opportunity to try out their meals and plan.  I really think their food tastes good and I just wish didn't have so many dietary problems so that I could cope with something like this.  If you are wanting to lose weight without any of the hassle of counting calories, etc., this plan would work very well I believe.  And that's the truth. 

Note - although I was sent a selection of meals, etc. to trial, any and all opinions were my own.  I was not paid for nor required to write a positive review.
