~ lite n' easy ~ have you tried it?

Yeah I tried it for 4 weeks and that was enough for me. It was nice in the beginning but then the dinners started tasting like cardboard and left a horrible aftertaste in my mouth. It's also packed full of preservatives and MSG. I think it cost me around $110 and I was on the 1200 calorie breakfast, lunch and dinner. I suppose as a short term thing it's good to help with getting used to smaller portion sizes and I liked the convenience.

My brother did it for 12 weeks when my parents were overseas. I think he mostly did it for the convenience of not having to cook, but he lost 20kgs, which he has pretty much kept off for a couple of years.
A friend also did it for a week and that was more than enough for her. She said that the food was pretty average

Cindye: Wow! 20kg that's awesome!
i realise it wouldn't really taste great lol
Inertia: hmmm was that $110 for the month? you think its worth the money?

Oh sorry that was $110 for the week. That was also a year or so ago, so the prices may have changed and they are higher for the 1500 or 1800 calorie plan. I think that's ok if you are single, but if you've still got to buy food and prepare meals for the family then it's quite expensive in my opinion.

I would love to do it. For the convenience mostly but it is so expensive! Even if df did it too, we would still need to buy food for dd. It's x3 what we would normally spend a week on food for the three of us! I wonder whether eating the weight watchers frozen meals would work? I cant imagine lite n easy tasting any better?

Did it for over 6 months. Loved the food. Lost 20kgs. Best thing ever.

It's $131 a week now. I've been back on it for the past 3 weeks. It's so convenient and everything tastes so good I think. I'm really slack on my veggie intake so it forces me to eat well
I was on it prior to falling pregnant with DD and lost 12kgs in about 8 weeks. It's great for teaching portion sizes which I needed.

I did it for 3 weeks and didn't lose anything?? I was only doing 5 days though rather than full week.
I paid $110 for B/L/D for 5 days - I loved the food actually and found the dinners to be filling. I often get stuck eating the same for brekky & lunch, so enjoyed the variety.
You only need to buy milk in addition - unless you have other family to cook for. If you're dingle then I think it's great.
FYI - I much prefer Lite N Easy meals to frozen WW - bigger serves and taste much better/fresher.

Best thing I ever did.
Went from 70kg to 58kg! But after a year I got slack and am now back to 63kg.
Trick is to never cheat. I was so dedicated that I would take it even when I went away for the weekend. Once you sneak extras it looses it's effectiveness.
