For four years now, I have maintained my weight loss of 38 pounds and I am proud to have reached my ideal weight by acquiring healthy eating habits with help from the SOSCuisine service.
I regularly talk to my patients about the benefits of this service. Why? Because they are surprised to learn that I’ve lost weight without putting it back on. It makes them want to discover how I succeeded; and it’s so important for my health and that of my patients.
Here’s what I tell my patients:

From the weight loss to pregnancy and breastfeeding menus; I have done them all! My experience with SOS Cuisine menus started a few months before my wedding. My husband and I wanted to look good on our wedding day so we tried the weight loss menu.
Despite my initial scepticism in a few months my clothes started fitting better and then they were too big for me. Wow, what a moment! Another benefit was the pride we felt after making a dish to see that it turned out good with not much effort. We also started to eat so much more variety of food, making us feeling healthier and satisfied and we noticed that our grocery bill was also cheaper.
We kept following the weight loss menu until I got pregnant, when I decided to switch to the pregnancy menu. A great feature of this menu is that it is divided in 3 trimesters in a way to meet the changing necessity of pregnancy. Overall the menu went really well and I didn’t gain too much weight, keeping my baby and me healthy.
Obviously as soon as the baby came I switched to the breastfeeding menu, specifically designed to meet the needs of breastfeeding moms. This menu helped me get rid of that extra few kilos that remained from pregnancy in no time and it was effortless. Read more.

I’m a nurse, I’m 59, and I started to put on weight around the age of 45. Since then, I’ve tried all sorts of diets: Minçavi, Ideal Protein with intensive training, protein diet with medical monitoring, personal diet, patches, muffins, miracle diets to get rid of undesirable fat. They worked for the most part, but I always put the weight back on!
I’ve never followed a diet like yours. Actually, I prefer to say I’m changing my eating habits. I started it a month ago and I’ve already lost 6 pounds (3kg)! I subscribed for a year, since I have 50 pounds (23kg) to lose and it gives me a year to integrate my new habits while losing weight at a rate that’s beneficial to my health. After that, I’ll continue with you to maintain my weight.
The beauty of your system, is that I don’t feel like I’m on a diet because I don’t feel deprived of anything. Your meals are balanced and your plan is educational: I discover new recipes, cooking tips, and all sorts of flavours. So I tip my hat and say THANK YOU! for your beautiful initivative. You’ve put together something great!Gisèle P. (Granby, QC, Canada)
After a whole year of cancer surgery and treatments, my food habits were not healthy: I had no energy to cook, food tasted like cardboard, I had to take drugs, signals from my taste buds to my brain were wrong and made me nibble all the time to ease the discomfort in my stomach. I kept snacking all the time to rid myself of the discomfort in vain. I put on 20 pounds.
I found SOS Cuisine and was thrilled by the 7 days meal plans. My nutritionist knew about you and found everything balanced and adapted to my needs. Cooking and eating so well pleased me and filled me with satisfaction and pride. Not to mention that a glance at the other baskets at the grocery store revealed that my cart, filled with superb colourful food was screaming good health. I was very proud of it.
I lost the excess weight. I feel beautiful. I feel a sense of fullness, so my mind is not constantly on eating? my needs are met. I have energy, lots of it. Results achieved Read more.

I subscribed to the free package shortly after the meal planning service came into existence. I recently learnt about the paid service plans. When I retired in October 2013, my main task at hand was to give up smoking and as a result, I put on 40 pounds. With no incentive to cook since I live alone, it was easier to eat out and continue to put on weight.
About 3 months ago, I subscribed to the weight loss diet and two weeks ago I unsubscribed as I felt I had enough menus to guide me. BIG MISTAKE! I’m seriously thinking of subscribing again since I’m not done losing weight and I’ve grown used to being guided, and seriously when someone my age (69 years) has to lose weight, it’s much better to have experts like you show me the way in such a great manner.
You’ve been part of my life for about 10 years now and I thank you for all the delicious dishes I’ve tasted thanks to you.
Just to clarify, I’m vegetarian and it’s reassuring to note that you ensure that my diet is wholesome.

I lost about 60 lbs in one year, and that too, gradually. This meal plan has really helped me change my eating habits. The menus you offer are very good, flexible and varied. I got into the habit of cooking more often, which was necessary.
I have now almost reached a healthy weight and I’m pretty proud of it. However, I’m still following your meal plan, but with a little less zeal than before. It makes me feel secure to have a guide.
Anyway, I think that your approach is excellent. It’s not a diet, but rather a method that teaches us to correctly balance what we eat in a day and make good food choices. Thanks!

I discovered new recipes, it’s a joy to see what awaits me in my weekly menu. You taught me how to stay focused with my grocery shopping, and gave me good cooking tips… In short, thank you for this great service.

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL SITE. My husband is a very picky eater, to the point that I would no longer tell him what I was making! He would always have a comment like: “Oh I don’t like that very much”, or “What’s that I’ve never had that before I’m sure I don’t like it”. Did I mention he’s my husband and not my child!
With your menus, I have been able to plan the weekly meals and, best of all, I don’t hear him complain or pick at his food anymore. When he is not to crazy about an ingredient, I remove it the next time I make the dish… Heaven no more complaints !!!!
At the beginning, he was a little reluctant, but I new I was on to something when he said: “I really like what you’ve been making lately!”
Your site has allowed us to eat well, give me more time for myself, which in return has resulted in me saying bye bye to 23 lbs (and counting) over the last 7 months!! More free time = time for a long walk, a bike ride, and stress release !!! Thanks again for a wonderful site!
