More delicious recipes for your easy to follow diet. We hope that you have had time to make some of the earlier low calorie diet recipes , diet recipes 2 and diet recipes 3

If you are restricting your calorie intake then we believe that what you do eat should be enjoyable, tasty and healthy food.


When you make your own meals you can control the calories, save money and ensure the ingredients are fresh and top quality.

However, we are all human and lead busy lives, so there are bound to be days where you'll need to buy ready-prepared dishes or ingredients - just watch the calorie content, as there are often lower fat/sugar options these days.

Our tongues are bristling with taste buds, so give them a treat and try some of our diet recipes.

Try not to eat in front of the tv, make your dinner an occasion - try and sit down with your loved ones and enjoy your food. Taking time to eat and digest tends to make you feel more satisfied, and less likely to reach for more snacks later.
