The DLicious: Fast Fitness Food (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/at-david-lloyd/dlicious/dlicious) concept integrates David Lloyd Leisure’s approach to eating with its expertise in helping people achieve their health and fitness goals (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/home/goals) through sport and exercise. The menu caters for all members, from those in need of a quick snack while on the move, to a healthy meal for the whole family or exercise enthusiasts who want to eat the right foods pre- and post-workout.
The new menu focuses on a ‘naturally good food’ ethos, and features dishes which use only the highest quality ingredients.

DLicious has been developed by a dedicated team of chefs, nutritionists and health and fitness experts at David Lloyd Leisure to help members meet their core nutritional and lifestyle needs.
The DLicious concept is inspired by the Paleolithic approach to eating, and aims to help members feel energised throughout the day. The dishes are designed to help members reap the rewards that come with eating the right kind of carbohydrates, protein and essential fats in the right proportions (40:30:30) to improve physical performance and well-being. The menu now also follows an easy-to-read ‘key’ to help members choose the right dish; vegetarian, inspired by Paleo or 40:30:30.
Kevin Harper, David Lloyd Leisure’s group head of food and beverage, said: “We strive to give our members the best quality from start to finish and this new menu will support them from the inside out, improving their well-being with fresh, tasty and healthy seasonal dishes.
“We’re continually looking at ways to further improve and innovate our food and beverage offering, which aims to support our members’ health and fitness goals and takes into account their very valuable feedback, and I’m delighted that our new DLicious menu offers an even greater choice of dishes for the whole family to enjoy.”
David Lloyd Leisure won the leisure category of the Menu Innovation and Development Awards (MIDAS) for DLicious in 2014. The awards, bestowed by the Menu Innovation Network, recognise the outstanding creative talents of menu development managers and group executive chefs in the food service industry.
