    :wave_cry:Im starting Lighterlife foodpacks again today. Iam unable to go to classes for financial reasons. I have approx 5 weeks LL packs plus some Cambridge packs and W8 packs.

    Does anyone know if I use the LL,CD and W8 packs together will this effect my weight loss?

    Please help x

    I think it will be ok, after all they are all VLCD's and are aimed at getting you into Ketosis.
    Good luck with it. x

    My LL counc/r also said the packs should be ok even if a few months out of date. I had about a weeks supply when I restarted last week she said they were ok to use:D
    Good luck !

    Hi Westie - I wish you all the best on your second journey through LL. Don't feel bad about it - after all - we ONLY really learn from mistakes don't we! I started falling off the wagon after my first LighterLife absinence thing too... It's not uncommon. :)
    You should feel proud of yourself that you're trying to sort it out! Like I say, if it doesn't work out, try and try again. ;)

    You could perhaps try Exante? Exante - Meal Replacement and Diet Products There's a deal on for a 'Bumper' pack of 4 week's worth of shakes for £100... Which is only equivalent to about a week and a half on LL!

    The mixing of packs I'd have imagined not to be too much of an issue - they are all supposed to be fairly similar in composition; though some diets say you only need 3 packs per day - therefore the nutriets would be more concentrated in those.

    Don't worry about it too much though - at the end of the day, if we think about the old principle of -calories in-calories out- you'd still be way below your normal required intake and below the 1200 threshold. On a VLCD you're also usually below 800; so regardless of what you eat, you would still be losing weight.

    xx

    Thanks everyone- see update on my LL diary.
    Found old LL bar and managed to get some Celeb Slim bars from Superdrug-they have a similar carb, fat and calories to LL ones £2.49 each x
