What a turbulent few months since the first case was found in the UK – the Coronavirus outbreak has brought life in the country to a standstill. This public health crisis has left us all feeling a bit anxious and maybe heading to the fridge to indulge in a spot of comfort eating – now, we don’t blame you. The coronavirus outbreak is scary and it’s natural for people to turn to things that make us happy.
We don’t want to deter you from this but for your own sake, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and good overall health to not only protect your immune system but also to make sure you’re ready to get out and enjoy life once the coronavirus outbreak has gone. So, with that in mind, here at Diets2Go, we’ve come up with a few tips for maintaining a good diet during this coronavirus situation.
Snacking happens to the best of us, but, when the urge strikes it’s important to understand that we can control what we snack on. Leave the junk food behind and make sure you’ve got healthy snacks like nuts, fruit (frozen fruit is a good option too), hummus and yoghurt in your cupboards.
This can’t be emphasised enough – make sure you hydrate! It’s the easiest thing in the world to do but to a large extent, we forget about it. Hydrating is vital to maintaining a good diet. It doesn’t have to be water either – you can also get hydration from squash, tea or coffee.
To avoid the perils of snacking and comfort eating, set yourself and your family times to eat. For instance, breakfast is at 9am lunch at 1pm and dinner at 7pm. When those meal times do come around opt for lean meats, fresh produce (where possible), oily fishes like canned tuna and other similar food items – all are great options to maintain good overall health.
A treat now and again is perfectly fine, in fact, we encourage it! This coronavirus outbreak is scary and stressful for a lot of people, and if the odd snack brings you comfort then go ahead – it’s all about promoting balance and just making sure you’re not overdoing it. So the next time you’re taking your daily walk don’t be afraid to pick up something that makes you happy!
Often the home of frozen pizzas and ice cube trays, this coronavirus outbreak has shone a light on our fantastic freezers! Why? Well, there is so much fresh produce that can be frozen or that’s already frozen in the supermarket. Gone are the days of having to worry about eating fresh produce in 2 or 3 days. Frozen fruit like berries, frozen vegetables like spinach, broccoli and frozen proteins like chicken and fish are all great options if you’re looking to maintain a healthy diet for a few weeks.
Alternatively, you could always order meals from Diets2Go! We’re passionate about making sure everyone can enjoy fresh, delicious food via an easy, convenient meal prep service.

So, let us do the hard work and prepare delicious meals for you while you focus on spending more time on the things you love.

I’ve tried so many diets and always found it difficult to know what I should be eating. The guys at Diets 2 Go have been fantastic. I spoke with Jordan initially and with his help, planned out what I need and ordered 4 weeks worth of food. So happy – I’ve lost 1.5 stones in 9 weeks and I absolutely love the meals! They taste amazing!Sarrah Ahmed
Try their Jamaican Jerk chicken meal – better than what my mum cooks at home! Highly recommend these guys, their meals are fresh, tasty and actually help you achieve your goals. Plus, they are only a phone call away!Andreas Papathanisou

Very impressed so far- had a few orders delivered to my office, easy process, food so much nicer than I expected. I have a few allergies and am vegetarian but nothing too much trouble. Made my dieting a lot easier. Cheers.Charlotte Fallon
I signed up with diets2go 12 weeks ago and cannot praise them enough. The food is amazing, really varied and tasty and has taken the guess work out of trying to eat healthily. The meals are always delivered when expected and even taste great cold which is good for long work days as I can eat them out and about. I get friendly reminders if I haven’t placed my order in time and they listen to likes and dislikes. Happy all round.Jane Collier
