I like cooking. I don’t like cooking for myself as much as cooking for others, but since I’ve been on this diet I’ve “retrained” myself to cook at least once a day and prepare proper meals for myself 3 times a day.
But I have to admit I’m very tempted by the idea of “outsourcing” the entire thing to someone else!
There’s a few companies offering a “personal chef” service for people who want to eat properly and lose weight, but don’t have the time, energy of inclination to cook for themselves.
While most of them are in the UK and US I came across one that is available in Ireland (there might be more) – Diet Chef.
Looking at the costs it actually works out to be quite economical. Sign up for 3 months and you pay about €50 / week, which is less than what I’d spend on groceries in a normal week.
The range of food they offer is pretty good, though I don’t think it would suit me, as you obviously can’t swap things around – you’re stuck with whatever you’ve ordered.
Now if I could only find a solution for eating whilst on the road I’d be happy!
There is a solution for eating on the road, always was but it just doesn’t spring to mind.
One is to make healthy sandwiches.
Another is by having a few proteins bars with you.
Third and not the least, you can eat healthy in McDonald as well, not that I recommend but by not getting any sauce and don’t eat the bread, you should be alright.
If I was only “out and about” for a day it wouldn’t be a problem. It’s when I’m travelling for a week or more overseas that it’s more complicated. Though I guess it depends on which country you’re in. If I was travelling in Italy or Spain I wouldn’t be worried 🙂
