Tried and Tested: The Honestly Good Smoothie Co.

As some of you know, a few weeks ago, I decided to start a 6-weeks challenge to reduce my body fat. I was shocked to discover that my body fat was at 38% as I have a relatively healthy diet and BMI. I had to drastically change my diet and include some more fruits and vegetables into it. As I work long hours, sometimes it is challenging to have the recommended 5 portions of fruit & veg so I thought about having a daily smoothie. I then came across The Honestly Good Smoothie Co. and decided to try their range. Today I would like to tell you more about it.

What are they? 

The Honestly Good Smoothie Co. are delicious smoothie kits which are hand prepared, 100% organic and conveniently delivered to your door. You can put these handy pre-prepared pouches into your blender whenever you fancy a smoothie or two.

They are based on many highly nutritious and natural recipes including the following blends:

  • fruity
  • green
  • protein
  • veggie


I love smoothies but to be honest I do not not normally have enough fruits and veggies to prepare them at the comfort of my house. I really like the concept of pre-prepared smoothie kits as  they are easy to prepare, you can simply put them into your fridge and have one daily. I ordered a variety box as I wanted to explore some of the smoothies offered by the The Honestly Good Smoothie Co.. The box was delivered on Saturday and when I opened it I was impressed by how great the smoothies looked. Once I blended my first pouch I became a fan of these little fruit and veg smoothie pouches and ordered some more for the coming weeks. You should try them!


From £4.75 per smoothie.

You can order them from:

Losing weight with The Diet Plate

If you are one of my loyal followers then I am sure that you have realised that I may have put on a bit of weight recently… I was travelling a lot, eating a lot of unhealthy food and didn’t have much time to exercise. It is the beginning of June though and as I am planning to go for my holidays in September or October this year, I’ve decided it’s time to start doing something about my weigh.

First step was to re-join my gym. I really enjoy exercising in the morning before work and it gives me some extra energy to face a day ahead. It’s always nice to have something accomplished by the time I get to the office.

Secondly, I did some research and this time I decided to start a diet plan that I would stick to, in order to achieve my dream weight. I came across the Diet Plate.


It is a visual method of weight loss by controlling the portions sizes and adjusting the nutritional food values directly at the point of serving your food. I really liked that concept because it means that I can have most foods and as long as I follow the portion sizes. It also means that I do not have to cook something separately and can have a dinner with my husband eating the same food. What else could I ask for?
I have also read that The Diet Plate was clinically trialled and the results state that anyone using it is 6 times more likely to lose weight rather than going it alone. The endocrinologist Dr Sue Pedersen from the University of Calgary, said the results were “outstanding and ground breaking!”.
The Women’s Complete Set of plates costs only £31.99 and is dishwasher and microwave safe.

How to use it?

Step 1 -get your own set of plates:

3. Fill in the plate and enjoy:

Thirdly, I joined The Diet Plate® online programme which works independently or with the Diet Plate set. It has taken 3 years of development and what I love the most about this programme is that when you join it you can decide how much weight you wish to lose and how quickly you wish to achieve it. Consequently, the programme calculates how long it will take you to reach your ideal weight so you know it from the start of your weight loss adventure. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I can see a steady weight loss.
What’s great is that The Diet Plate® online programme works for anyone so you can use it. It doesn’t matter if you are underweight and wish to gain weight or if you wish to lose weight or maintain goal weight. It is very personal and it almost feels like you are using a personal dietician. I love the dashboards that display a lot of important information and help me make informed choices. I am able to see the nutritional content of my food at a glance and combine foods together i.e. for salad you can add all its components and it will display the overall nutritional KCAL value. In addition, I found them quite motivating as they display a break down with lots of short term goals that show how far I’ve come. You can access it from any device that has an Internet connection.
The programme is extremely affordable and you can decide how long you wish to register for.

I’ve been using the plan for a couple of weeks now and I love it. I can see a steady weight loss and as long as I manage my portion size and do not exceed my calories allowance I can eat whatever I wish to. The Diet Plate online programme is the best diet plan I’ve ever used and a set of Diet plates should become a kitchen must-have for anyone who wishes to lose or gain a bit of weight.

I decided to try some diet pills that don’t contain any stimulants and will not harm my health. I came across the Gravitate Nutrition Weight Loss Kit that contains 100% natural ingredients. Gravitate has been ranked as “approved” by the diet pills comparison site and it was also ranked as a second best diet pill supplement available on the market now :

Gravitate Nutrition Weight Loss Kit offers a 35-day money-back-guarantee as well as a free diet plan and worldwide shipping so I decided to give it a go. In addition, the website states that it is: ‘the most effective non-prescription weight loss supplement available’.IMG_6380

I ordered 30 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit from their website: and it was delivered swiftly.

Price: RRP £54.99 but currently if you order directly from Gravitate Nutrition website you can get it for only £34.99.
