Jane Plan Diet Review

Jane Plan Diet Review is the topic for the day. I am very lucky to be asked to try out this diet plan and I can't wait to get started. So I will start with the facts:

Jane Plan Info:
About Jane –
Jane Michell is a qualified nutritionist, with experience working at The Princess Grace Hospital and various weight loss clinics. She developed her love of food working at the BBC with household names such as Delia Smith and Rick Stein. Jane is known for her caring approach, non-judgemental attitude and her in-depth understanding of the issues faced by anyone wanting to lose weight.

About Jane Plan –
- How it works
At Jane Plan we create an individual weight loss plan exclusively designed for your needs and goals. Whether a client is looking to lose a stone before their wedding, or a few pounds before a holiday, we provide a diet containing the foods they love but that will allow them to lose the extra weight  - without compromising their lifestyle. Flexibility is essential - people often say they don’t have the time to diet, so we remove the stress of shopping, measuring and cooking and make sure all our meals are ready to eat in less than three minutes.
In the initial consultation with a nutritionist, we find out how much weight each client wants to lose, their reasons for doing so and a bit about their likes and dislikes and lifestyle. We then give them the option to either select their own meals from a menu or allow us to design a diet based on what they have told us.
Regardless of the plan’s length, whether it’s a week or three months, everybody receives a start-up phone call from Jane to explain how to follow their plan to optimise results and then a follow up phone call on a regular day of their choice to check how it’s going.
- The food
From salads to curries to casseroles, we offer a range of meals that are not only calorie and portion controlled, but taste delicious too. Our breakfasts are, where possible, made with local and organic ingredients, our lunches vary between soups and salads which can easily be transported and heated and our dinners are authentic and filling.

I think this all sound yum and I must say I was impressed by the selection of foods.
I started my diet by having a lovely phone call with Jane. She is a very nice lady and she asked me lots of questions about my eating habits and what I wanted out of the diet. She then went on the tell me what to expect and that I would get further phone calls as I went along.
So Tuesday is D day and I must say I'm very excited to get my parcel. I plan on keeping you posted when it arrives, so I can tell you all about it, and the food. I can say what it tastes like and so on.  Then I will post once I am half way through the week , then at the end of week one.

So wish me luck and if you want to check it out for yourself go to
