    It will cost more if you are over 5" 8 and need to have 4 packs per day.....depending on which plan you choose to follow.
    I pay,
    tetras (cartons of readymade shakes) £2.10
    Bars. £2.15
    Sachets of shakes, soups and porridge £1.90
    Though it does vary from counsellor to counsellor.

    I have 21 Tetras and 7 bars, costing £2.20 each, so it's £61.60 for me

    For me, losing almost 2 stones in 2 months and being the lightest I've been for 10 years is priceless! Well worth the money imo :)

    CD Step 5/Low GI
    Seeing as I'd spend 45 quid (My average spend with fizzy water and stuff) a week on two nights out having a dinner and a bottle of wine and I've gained an hour or so a day cos I dont have to food shop or cook...so I'm more likely to walk to work (saving me 1.30 a day in bus fares) I've managed to save money. I know that's a bit different in a family with a Big Shop, but for me, it's saved me a fortune since I started this time round - and I've lost 3.5 stone in 2.5 months.

    Later on, the problem is the wardrobe budget ;)

    Sounds a lot but it's cheaper than the similar diet and I say worth every penny!! X

    If I were you I'd add up how much your food costs at the moment, include EVERYTHING such as buying juice bottles/coke/other drinks when out, the odd snack whilst out and about can cost £5+, then if you have a takeaway/eat out every week or every other week you're looking at an extra £20 at least, that;s £25 not including any food from a food shop!

    I definitely am saving money as everyday used to buy something as a snack xx

    I agree - it's cheaper. As well, because you don't spend so much time in supermarkets, you don't have to grapple with 'impulse buys'.
