If you're looking for a healthy eating plan to try and keep you on track, the Jane Plan diet programme could really help you towards reaching your goals.
We're always told that the key to a healthy lifestyle (and actually sticking to it) is a well-balanced eating plan married with a dedicated fitness routine – whether that includes morning yoga meditation, daily strolls, or casual jogging. But for some of us it's just not that easy – especially when it comes to finding something that we're actually motivated to stick to, as this journey often brings mental whiplash, hunger pangs, and a binge-restrict cycle that makes the process seemingly impossible.
That’s where Jane Plan comes in: a bespoke weight loss programme and individualized meal delivery service with a viral stampede behind it, thanks to its proven track record of success. And luckily for you, we've partnered with the award-winning diet to get our readers save £10 off each month, so you can save on the Jane Plan costs. With our reader offer, you can start to lose weight for less than £7.47 per day. To redeem visit www.janeplan.com or call 020 3489 4770 and quote WH25.
What is the Jane Plan?
Developed by nutritionist Jane Michell, Jane Plan offers over 75 options of portion-controlled (and delicious) meals, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Each entrée is light and low GI, and arrives straight to your door in a box — refrigeration not necessary. Members can choose from a wide range of high-protein, vegetarian, gluten, wheat and dairy-free recipes. On Jane Plan, you'll be consuming 1200 calories a day.
Backed by NHS and NICE guidelines, the programme’s philosophy promotes a healthy-lifestyle approach to weight loss, rather than quick gimmicks, fads, and false promises. You'll be paired with a nutritionist, who will provide weekly support and education to ensure long-term maintenance.
In short, it’s a diet that doesn’t feel like one, designed to eliminate the guesswork and stress behind tracking calories.
How does Jane Plan work?
First, you must purchase a meal plan, or you won’t be able to register and enroll in the programme online. During registration, you'll be prompted to fill out a form with your height, weight, age, food preferences and allergies, and general physical information. You’ll receive a report of your BMI and BMR information on the screen, and via email for your records.
You’ll then be able to order the programme online, and select your desired duration. It's recommended to consult with the Jane Plan team regarding your diet plan, goals, and intended outcomes beforehand.
Once complete, Jane Plan will contact you to confirm your order, where you'll have the opportunity to sort through your meals. More or less, you'll receive your box within three to four working days.
How much does Jane Plan cost?
According to the Jane Plan 2021 price list, the classic plan, which lasts for a month and will help you lose around a stone, comes in at £9.25 per day, totaling to £259 per month. It contains all your meals for a month including 28 breakfasts, 28 lunches, 28 dinners and 28 snacks. The more months you sign up for, the cheaper the monthly cost becomes. The brand’s best value option is the 4-month plan that’s priced at £7.47 per day, £209 per month - but the full 2021 Jane Planprice list is:
- 1 Month Plan: £9.25 per day / £259 per month
- 2 Month Plan: £8.75 per day / £245 per month
- 3 Month Plan: £8.17 per day / £229 per month
- 4 Month Plan: £7.47 per day / £209 per month
Each plan is tailored to how much weight you'd like to lose and how long you'd like to be on the diet for, so you can choose from one-, two- or three-month plans and pick from the classic plan, a "man plan" option and a vegetarian alternative. It's not just the food though. You also get the meal plans and a food diary to help you keep track — and make sure the Jane Plan diet really works for you.
Jane Plan also features "Weekends Off" plans if you only want to receive five deliveries a week. You can cancel your subscription at any time before your Pay Monthly plan renews. You’ll need to give five days notice before the renewal date, or you’ll be charged for another month.

Jane Plan Review
woman&home's Food Director Jane Curran talks us through what comes in a month's subscription to the Jane Plan diet.
"We've got a big box here and we're going to have a look at exactly what's inside," says Jane Curran. "This is a month's supply of food; it's all calorie counted, it's all controlled, so all you have to do is stick to it. Everything has been weighed out for you. All the hard work has been done.
"For breakfasts, there's lots of muesli with goji berries, cranberries... Toffee pecan granola... To these, you can add 2-3tbsp low fat yogurt or skimmed milk. You must have two portions of low fat dairy with the plan and you must have at least 5 portions of fruit and veg every day too.
"Snacks include nuts and oat cakes, but you can snack on fruit too.
"Everything is clearly labelled and the great thing is, none of this needs to be in the fridge so you can leave it in the box and keep it in a cool place.
"For lunch, think soups like sweet potato and butternut squash, carrot and coriander or porcini mushroom... There are also lunch on the go options to take to work with you, such as a salmon salad with dill." Couscous salads are also on the menu, but before you stock up on the healthy grain, it's best to read up on its preparation guidelines, including whether or not you can reheat couscous.
"Dinner is rich ragu with beef, mushroom stroganoff or fragrant chicken curry with lemongrass."

The food isn't all that's in the box. "In your box, you'll also have a food diary so you can keep notes of what you're having," says Jane. "You can lose up to a stone in a month so if you can stick to the diet, it's worth it.
"No decisions to make, no shopping to do - it's all done for you, in the box. Pretty easy I think."
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
