“Dear all, ”

Written on: 17/02/2010

Dear all,

I did L.L January-April 2008. This is a bad diet it has nothing to do with not following the rules when finished, i had 3 stone to loose but from the diet my hair fell out, i developed intolerances to certain food groups and my kidneys were failing (my husband was mortified, i came off it) and there were 2 other people in my group in hospital with kidney failure, and one women had been on it for 6 months and was bald!! when i conronted my councellor she had nothing to say but blush… Read Full Review

I found this review not helpful because...I have rejoined LL and think it is a great diet. My GP said he would only sign my consent form if I promised to have the full package, shakes, soups, bars, savoury drinks and fruit drinks. We discussed making biscuits with the bars, crisps using the vegetable meal. When he was satisfied that I would use this diet sensibly did he sign. I am to see him every 6 weeks. When I did the diet previously I had no side effects my only regret was not following through to maintenance and thinking I could do it myself. How wrong was I. This time I aim to see it through to weight management.

Written on: 09/02/2010

I did lighter life for three months and lost three stone. It can be very impractical socially and if you have to travel (there is a LOT of water involved so always know where the loo is!).

I would say the difference between success and failure with this plan is very heavily dependent on who your counsellor is.

It's fine for everyone to be gung ho during the absitence phase, but the really important bit is learning how to eat properly when you stop eating the LL food. I got quite… Read Full Review

“I started on the Lighter Life diet 2 weeks ago. ”

Written on: 31/01/2010

I started on the Lighter Life diet 2 weeks ago.

Positives:- You lose tons of weight, I dropped 1.5 stone. However saying this, I think that no matter how you comprise the 530 calories, you'd lose the same amount of weight. What would be so different about eating 4 cereal bars per day and taking vitamin supplements??

Negatives:- The huge negative was the effect on my health. I had severe diarrhoea all the time, and couldn't even contemplate holding on whilst doing something else. I felt… Read Full Review

“I was 15 and a half stone when I started this diet....”

Written on: 30/01/2010

I was 15 and a half stone when I started this diet. After 100 days I was down to 12 stone. It was great.

However 2 years later I am now 18 stone. I kid you not. Do not do this diet. Do you really think drinking milkshakes instead of proper food is a good way to lose weight? Think about it. I was desperate to lose weight and look where it's got me. It's an absolute nightmare and the people pedalling this diet should be put in prison.

I've joined Overeaters Anonymous because dieting doesn't… Read Full Review

“Hi ”

Written on: 20/01/2010

Hi

Lighter Life is a very good diet plan for weight lose but i think they are taking advantage of people.

I started the Lighter Life diet in Feb 09 and in 2 months lost 25lbs which i thought was great but then my brother pointed out the obvious, 'why are you paying all that money when you can make the same diet yourself for less than half the money', this then got me thinking. In April 09 i started my own homemade Lighter Life diet of a Fruit Smoothie for breakfast, Green Salad or Soup for… Read Full Review

I found this review somewhat helpful because... It was a true and inspiring story, but wouldn't work for people who need more support - like me.

Drsquid's Comment

Written on: 03/06/2010

I agree with the above reviewer. I am on lighter light lite. I lost 5 stones on my accord several years ago and the last 2 years I crept a stone back up. Really struggled to try and keep it down so decided to join lighter light lite to see if I can stick to it. And 10 weeks down the line I have now lost a stone. I must say, I did not fully stick 100% to it as life is always full of suprises (and food with occasion) but what I did learn was what my body could and could not take. Secondly, I don't like to crash diet and lose everything so I have food here and there as I don't see any point on living off 3 sachets and food (without carbs) for 100 days then suddenly reintroducing them all at the end without actually learning to deal with temptation/eating normal things. So maybe I am stupid to pay all that money, but I like the weight in, the support (though I never tell them I cheated) and at the end of the day, the reviewer above is very right.. stick to low calorie, low fat and high protein, minimal carbs with the occasional allowances for reasonable temptation is the key to weight loss. This is after all a long haul thing but indeed if you need a kick start, I don't see lighter life a bad thing to start off with.

Written on: 29/12/2009

I finished my LL journey over a yea ago now and as i have not put on a single pound since then, i felt i should write about it! My story starts with being over 20 stone at the age of 22. Not nice. I felt that this was the way i was meant to be and that was that. Oh was i wrong (thankfully!) I was recommended to the diet by a friend of my fathers who claimed the results were outstanding and fast. Hesitantly i went to my first meeting and got the doctors form to bring back if i decided to go… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/12/2009

I have been on LL 3 weeks today and have lost 18lbs. I was 13.10 when I started and would like to get to around 10 stone. After day 3 (once the hunger goes) I have found this diet a breeze. I find it amusing to read the reviews stating 'putting all the weight back on once you finish', obviously you have just gone back to your old eating habits, otherwise wouldn't everyone in the world be over weight?!?!?!? It really does make you think about your eating habits/triggers, and if you are happy… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/12/2009

I am currently on the Lighterlife Diet and have been for the past 6 months. I decided LL as this was recommended by my doctor who had seen fantastic results from other patients and doctors that she knew. As with everyone i had tried WW, SW and Slimfast and i could not keep to the diets or my weight would creep back on. I have lost an incriedable 6 stone in that time and even tho this diet is not for the faint hearted with some will power and determination it can and does work. Yes you may get… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2009

Simply, it works. It's not complicated and if you are a busy person like me, it's perfect. Plus the group counseling helps keep you on track. I lost 2 stone, going for a 3rd stone. Never in my life did I ever think this was possible until doing this. Everything else I've tried, I've failed, without experiencing good results, without it being easy to follow, I just drop it. But I've managed to stay on LighterLife and it works. Boggles my mind that I let myself be unhappy for so long… Read Full Review

I have been on LighterLife for 10 weeks and have lost 45lbs. I started at 18st 11 and now i am at 15st 9lbs. Initiallly i found none of the problems that are being banded around. When starting it is a shock to the system, but after the first few days i was amazed that although i was eating 550 cal a day i did not feel hungey at all. I did the initial 8 week (for Men) and then a further 2 weeks as i did not feel i had lost enough weight. I go swimming about 2-3 time per week and swim 50 lengths… Read Full Review

I have been on the program for seven weeks, I have lost five and a half stone, my target weight is six stone which I hope to achieve within the next two weeks. Does it work? this is my take on the program. I was fat because of what I used to eat and the alchohol I drank, not because of my dear parents not because I was struck down with the deadly it is in my jeens syndrome or not because of the any excuss will do desease. I was fat because I ate fat. Does lighterlife work yes the scales do… Read Full Review

PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS DIET!

I started the lighter life diet around two years ago and did it for around 8 months. I lost 5 stone and as soon as i came of it i put a lot of the weight back on, this was following the lighter life guidlelines of introducting food in stages.

It made me have a very negative relationship with food as it makes food the enemy and a bad thing. I developed an eating disorder as i had got it ito my head that all food was bad… Read Full Review

If you are thinking about quitting after only the third day, frankly, you are destined for a life of been over weight, i don't want to be cruel, but it's the truth.

Stick with it,.

Eat right and Exercise; this is not the right way to lose weight; it is a money making scam.

Losing weight quickly is not good; eat 1500 calories a day with exercise and then you should lose weight and keep it off over a sustained period of time.

It is about lifestyle change, not quick fixes; you will just end up binging and £70 a week to ruin your body is a rip off.

Written on: 03/09/2009

I did lighter life 2 years ago and lost 7.5 stone in 8 months. And feel really great. I have put on 1/2 stone since due to my holidays over the last few months but eating normally and its coming off again. It is expensive £66 a week but I had tried so many diets and spent so much money on other diets. I do believe that all diets have their own merits and it is best to find the one that works for you as we are all different. I did have one side effect my hair became very thin after I finished… Read Full Review

A follow-up...

I'm just about to start week ten on LighterLife, my last week, and I've lost just over 4 stone, just in time for my holiday.

It really has been worth the "effort", it's been a little tedious at times, and I've found the weekends to be the most challenging, especially with the smell of all the summer bbq's wafting around, but if you're determined enough you can do it - if I can, anybody can!

To be honest I'm finding the thought of the last week to be the most difficult, I can't… Read Full Review

I've been on the Lighter Life diet for four weeks, the first week I lost an incredible 16lbs, second week 6lbs, third week 5lbs, fourth week 4lbs.

Losing 2 stone 3lbs in just 4 weeks, I think this diet (if you stick to it) speaks for itself.

Although the weight loss has gradually declined, I've now decided to introduce some exercise, on the advice of a friend who has lost an amazing 8 stone on this diet, he said that he found the same decline over the weeks, but by introducing exercise he did… Read Full Review
