Musclefood's Do The Unthinkable Plan Review

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have noticed that over the summer I got the chance to review the Do The Unthinkable food plan by Musclefood. It seemed like perfect timing as I was super busy with my lifestyle as I was working, looking after my kids, also studying at uni away from home and I had various weddings etc. I was also trying to train for a half marathon so I knew my exercise and diet needed to be on point whilst I was leading up to the run.
I received a 4 week plan for 6 days each week. 

So what is the plan?
Musclefood Do The Unthinkable is basically all the the food you would need for one day delivered straight to your door so there's no need for any meal planning or food shopping. 
There are 3 lengths of plans to choose from which are delivered weekly. You can have a 5 day, 6 day or 7 day plan. Each day comes with 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and also 3 snacks. 
The food arrives in a huge box, with fresh food in a freezer type container. The bonus of it all is that you can cancel anytime, there is no subscription required, unlike many other similar plans on the market.

The food:
When you sign up you get to choose your goal such as weight loss, toning, building muscle etc. You enter your height and weight and then your food choices will appear. There are so many to choose from. I must admit I found choosing the meals and snacks to be quite daunting as there were so many but they do highlight one's which would be perfect for your goals to help you decide.
The meals were high in protein to aid the exercise required to achieve your goals. There were things such as eggs, porridge, protein pancakes, various chicken dishes with rice, stir fry, a protein pizza (this was music to my ears as pizza is a personal favourite thing of mine) and so much more.

The snacks were plentiful and ranged from protein baked crisps to protein packed chocolate bars.
Most of the meals already came prepared so all you had to do was pop it in the microwave or oven. These ones were particular useful for when I was in work. Some of the meals you had to prepare yourselves (chop etc) and then cook but overall it was very easy and stress free. Another highlight with the food was that a lot of it could also be frozen.
You can view an unboxing video of one of my delivery's on youtube.

The exercise:
In your delivery box you receive a workout DVD and a wall planner with HIIT (high intensity interval training) pencilled in. I am usually very active but where my lifestyle had been super busy whilst doing this 4 week plan, I'll fully admit I didn't stick to the exercise schedule on the planner. I also feel that I didn't do enough exercise. I did less than what I normally would but again this is my fault and nothing to do with the plan.

My results:
Here are my results from start to finish (weight is in kg and measurements are in inches) -
Weight 65.2kg to 65kg
Chest 36 - 35
Waist 29.5 (remained the same)
Hip 39 to 38
Thigh 22 to 21
Arm 11.5 to 10.5

I was hoping for a bigger loss but again I think it was more down to the fact that I was too busy to fully commit to the exercise.

What did I think:
I really enjoyed the plan. I just wish I could have had more spare time to exercise more and therefore get better results. My favourite part of the plan was not having to meal plan, food shop and meal prep. That saved so much time. It was super easy having everything delivered to your door and then most of the meals were prepared by popping them in the microwave or oven.
