    Hey, ive never done lighter life myself, but well done on your weight loss so far. Im doing weight watchers at the mo, and realistically you could be losing 2lbs a week, on a smaller budget and eating anything you want to. You wont put weight back on if you make good food choices, maybe try the core plan for the first while??

    Good luck hun :D

    WW
    I have heard of people who do put a little on while changing from a VLCD to something like WW but not enough to worry about.

    Good luck

    There are quite a few people on here who have swapped from CD to WW and most of them seem to have a week where they maintain and then they start losing. You might want to build up to your full points allowance gradually.

    Hey hun just to add, the average weekly losses on CD/LL are generally a fair bit higher than WW, but as has already been said, the average loss on WW is up to 2lbs a week. But, I love that you get to eat lots of yummy stuff on WW where with LL you can't eat anything. Its great!! (I'm a convert, can you tell!??!?)

    Good luck in making your decision xxx

    You might put on a couple of pounds when you start eating again but it will just be water not fat. If you want to stay on a VLCD don't forget the Cambridge Diet is much cheaper than lighter life & I think you have more shakes etc to chose from.

    If you want to go back to eating then weight watchers say you can lose 1-2 pounds a week on their plan :D

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do:)

    hi,

    I have never tried the shake diets but the idea of not being able to sit down with my family and eat puts me off straight away.:eek: You say that you worry about putting on weight if you swapped to ww and started eating food again but what will happen when you have achieved your goal weight surely you can not stay on shakes forever you have to eat again at some time!!!
    I only joined ww 3 weeks ago and my money is quite tight so I am sticking to it as well as I can I dont want to waste my £5.50 fee a week ..
    In 3 weeks I have lost 1/2 stone and have enjoyed my food ....I think you should go for it...What have you got to loose...just weight!!!:wave_cry:
