The Xerlife food plan is not a calorie counting diet – it’s a flexible lifestyle eating program designed to help people have a better diet and to eat food nearer its natural state – exactly what our bodies were designed to do.

In addition, it contains no dairy or wheat products which are two elements of people’s diets which can be troublesome – but of course you are free to add these ingredients if you wish.

The Food Plan is designed to allow you to follow all the dishes on a specific week or simply use it as a database of recipes where you can pick and choose what you would like to eat.

If you decide to stick to one of our 7 day plans then we provide a shopping list for that week for one or two people. There is a filter that allows you to choose vegetarian and pescatarian plans as well as standard meat and fish dishes.

Remember if you don’t fancy a specific dish on a specific day or at a specific meal time that’s not an issue. Simply have a look at the other dishes on the other days and prepare that instead. Obviously the shopping list we provide may not have these ingredients on it but if you have them in your larder great!

Don’t forget to record what you eat off the plan!

It’s important to remember the Xerlife food plan is not a calorie counting diet its about getting people to eat food sensibly in it’s more natural state and all our dishes are based on this philosophy.

If you find a specific ingredient within a recipe not to your taste consider changing it – tuna, chicken, pork, beef, mackerel, cod (white fish), salmon, lamb, prawns are all acceptable replacements as are all vegetable and salad.

If you find the portions too big, initially learn to leave food, this is hard to conquer but is key to success!!! Then reassess the shopping list and  cut down the amounts in the recipe and aim not to be overly full at the end of a meal.

Saying all this if you find yourself in a situation with few options e.g. a wedding or party enjoy it!!! The key is to keep your food on track until the event and then wake up after it and get straight back into your healthy routine!

PLEASE NOTE: We do not warrant or guarantee that any recipes do not contain ingredients clients may be allergic to or prefer not to eat.
