    This! So so much better than Jenny. Jenny is all pantry/freezer stuff and you still provide the fresh (at least it was like 8 years ago!). Lite n easy definitely seemed healthier with more fresh produce as it was easy to skip the fresh produce with Jenny out of laziness.

    I'm going against the grain but did JC years ago and thought it was heaps tastier than lite n easy which I did last year....

    JC may have slipped in quality but I found lite n easy I didn't like many of the dinners and the few I did got so repetitive...

    The only thing I didn't like about JC was you had to attend an appointment once a week to be able to choose/ pick up your food...this may have changed but I found it really annoying...

    Thanks ladies. I've weighed it up and I'm going back to the healthy mummy plan. It's a PITA but it worked for me so I should just stick to it.

    I think committing to the weekly JC meetings is more of a PITA than meal planning and shopping and cooking.

    Ooh what's that one? I really do need to lose weight and I know food is a problem. But I don't exactly live metro so things like Lite N Easy are out as they wouldn't get delivered here so interested in one that you do yourself more I guess.

    It's a 4 week eating and exercise 'challenge' you can just google it.

    Basically you have 3 main meals and 3 snacks and there's exercises for each day / week.

    They provide you with a 1 week menu and the relevant shopping list. You can then swap out meals and snacks you don't like (or can't eat due to food sensitivities) and it automatically updates the shopping list. You can also choose 2 serves of you want your partner to follow the eating with you or 4 (or 6 in your case) for the entire family or if you want left overs.

    You then tick off the food you already have at home, print the list, do your shopping then cook from the recipes they give you.

    It is time consuming changing the weekly menu (which I recommend or you'll end up needing to buy the whole supermarket each week) and cooking and preparing the food, but if you're used to home cooking everything anyway, it won't be much different for you.

    Oh and they are challenges so they start each month, so you would have missed September, but can sign up for October. They also do shakes too.

    I lost 4kgs the first time I did it and 5 kgs the second time. First time I did no exercising, the second time I did lots of walking but no where near what they recommend in the plan.

    The meals are really yummy too, you don't *really* feel like you're on a diet. Portions are small but not tiny and there is flavour, just not as much as full fat full sugar meals and snacks you may be used to.

    My mum is doing JC has lost a fair amount of weight and seems to like it. I've been counting calories and eating Weight watches dinners. I've been steaming vegetables and adding them to the dinners. I've lost around 2kg over 3 weeks, but I'm not that strict over weekends. I only want to lose another 2kg more though.

    Can you do fort nightly meal plans with it instead of weekly. As that's when we do our shopping?

    Otherwise that pretty much sounds like what I'm after

    They release the menu and exercises on the Thursday the week before. So you could just do two lots of meal planning at once.

    So set one weeks meals and do the shopping list, then either double the quantities or, once you've got the first set of recipes and shopping list, do a new selection of recipes and generate a new shopping list. If you go with the second option, make sure to save or print the first set of recipes, otherwise you won't be able to access them once you change them. (Well you can but you would have to do the entire menu plan again which would waste a lot of time.)

    They release the meals every Thursday, but you can edit your plan. So in theory you could make up your own second week. Also, you can be just a regular member for $39.95/3 months which allows you access to the app and their recipe bank.
