    What is it?

    Not everyone can – or wants to – spend hours in the kitchen slaving away on homemade meals. The Lazy Girl’s Diet is the ultimate hassle-free diet. There’s no need for cooking, weighing or juicing – everything in the meal plans can be bought in a supermarket.
    Follow this plan for a month and you could lose up to 10lbs! It’s also suitable for vegetarians.

    How it works

    The Lazy Girl’s Diet is made up of pre-packaged food specifically created to be low-fat and low-calorie. So although you’re eating ready-meals, they’re the healthy ones, not the meals full of fat and salt.

    The diet is designed to make sure your portion sizes are restricted and your calorie intake low. These two things combined means you should lose weight.

    Who is it good for?

    Busy people or people who hate cooking. Anyone whose job means they have to eat on the go.

    What are the drawbacks?

    Ready meals can be expensive and processed foods tend to contain a lot of salt. You’re not allowed any alcohol.

    What do you do?

    Choose 3 meals a day from the lists below plus 1 snack. Be careful not
    to skip any meals as this will leave you hungry and tempted to snack.

    Drink at least eight cups or glasses of fluid a day. This will keep you
    hydrated but also take the edge off your appetite. Water’s best but diet
    drinks and tea or coffee without sugar are fine as alternatives Alcohol is forbidden.
    You’re also allowed 300ml of skimmed milk (approximately 100 cals) daily
    on top of any milk mentioned in the meal plans below.
