Diet Chef, the UK’s largest diet home delivery company, would like to Mumsnetters to put their offering to the test.

Diet Chef say "We give you breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack for each day of the week. Everything is calorie counted and portion controlled so you just tuck in and enjoy. We believe you should eat the food you love, so our menu, with around 100 delicious dishes, even include things like curry and pasta. With Diet Chef you can expect to lose 1-2 pounds a week, in line with UK Government recommendations for healthy, sustainable weight loss, while eating real, yummy food."

They have been working on responding to feedback on both meals and user experience, and would love to know what you think of the improvements they have made.

They would like to offer 10 Mumsnetters the opportunity to try out their diet delivery service for one month – this service is worth £245.

If you would be interested in joining the product test please click here and add your details.

Those selected will be sent a code, which will allow them to order a free 4-week hamper, with their preferred meal options. The meals are all delivered at the same time in one 4-week box, so you will need somewhere to store the food. However, because the food is heat sealed then pressure cooked within the packaging, you don't need to store it in the fridge; the cupboard under the stairs, a pantry, or a kitchen cupboard is fine.

We'd like testers to offer feedback at the end of each week, both on the food, the service and – if they don't mind sharing – how much weight they have lost and how they feel.

Everyone who offers feedback will be entered into a prize draw to win a £200 John Lewis voucher.

NB Diet Chef is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers.

Good luck!

I was hoping to be picked too as nothing is working at the moment. Food is becoming the enemy again for me sad.

Good luck to those picked. I hope you all achieve what you want too smile.

Wish I had been chosen. Never mind. Will be interesting to hear the reviews.

Thanks for letting us know Sunshine.

I assume then those who haven't heard anything are unsuccessful. Oh well I'll just stick to trying to eat 3 meals a day with no snacks still.

I got an email from Angelie yesterday morning saying I was selected and to confirm I wasn't pregnant or given birth in the last 6 weeks. I replied but not heard anything back. Hopefully she's just busy!

Maybe DietChef didn't like any of us grin

I haven't given up hope yet as no-one else has been back to say that they have been chosen.

Boo. Haven't heard anything! I needed a boost to kick start me into losing weight! Good luck to those that are chosen to participate!

Biwi I've done this diet before and the use by dates on the packets are almost a year! Make of that what you will!

MrFMercury Sun 12-Oct-14 07:18:06

I've signed up. I need something that will work and is easy, especially as I due to disability I can't cook meals for myself.
Do we know when DC will be choosing their testers?

Oh dear. I'm 8lb over my ideal (aesthetic not health) weight so I'd be the perfect candidate, but DH, the house chef, has pointed out that if I did this without him then he'd have no incentive to cook proper food for himself so he'd end up subsisting on takeaways, pot noodles and Full English Breakfast in a tin from the corner shop, which would mean that he
A) gained all the weight I lost,
B) spent all the money I saved,
C) contracted scurvy

Now if we could sign up as a couple I'd consider it.
