66 quid a week, and worth ever single penny of it!! Might sound a lot - but bear in mind you will not be buying yourself any groceries, petrol station snacks, takeaways, etc., which all add up to a lot!!

Its WORTH IT!!!! :)

Sell something - borrow money - whatever it takes, if you can find awy to do this it will be so worth it!!!

Also worth considering is Cambridge Diet, which is very much the same princiapl as LL, minus the counseling (which is why the higher costs, and very important if you have issues with food, etc.) But if you simply cannot, try Cambridge maybe - I think they are about £35 a week??

What do you spend weekly on food now? For groceries, and incidentals? Include pub nights,m etc.....

Suppose you have to take into account that this is your food less than £3 a meal...you buy NOTHING else. It's also CBT therapy....so...that's where the money goes. I can easily spend £30 on a binge...so..for the price of 2 binges....

Alternatively, there are other VCLD's out there....I don't know about the pricing for the others but CD varies roughly about £44 a week. Doesn't come with CBT though.


is loving CWP xx

Oh dear olivia, please don't get upset. I know how you feel. My mum had the same problem. We've done every other diet going together so we decided that we would do LL together too. But when we found out the cost, my mum just couldn't afford it. Well, I knew how much it meant to my mum to loose the weight, so me and OH have dug deep and we are lending her the rest of the money each week. I know she will pay me back but I know she is so glad that I could do this for her.

Ask family and friends, sell things, borrow the money. It really is, as BL said, worth every penny.

If you can live without the counciling, then Cambridge is always an option too and from what I have read it costs people about £43 per week. I do believe that councilling is the key to keeping the weight off so I would rather pay the extra to give myself the best chance of keeping it off.

Please let us know what you decide. Take care hun x x
When i first heard the cost of lighter life through a friend at work, my first thought was that i couldn't afford it. After i thought about it and sat down to work it out, i actually figured out i probably spent more than £66 a week on shopping for food, petrol station snacks, etc etc

I now think im probably actually saving money.

When i pick up my wages from the rugby club i used to go and buy food straight away, now im able to put more petrol in the car or buy clothes for myself or buy the dogs nice treats :D

Dont be too disheartened, work it out how much you currently spend on food, you might be shocked like i was ;)
Definately work out how much you are spending on food/drink/alcohol/snacks etc. Keep a diary for a week and write down the cost of everything you buy; you might well be suprised.

I know that I was spending upwards of £90+ a week on food from supermarkets and takeaways!

Give it some thought :) and please don't despair!

Find a chemist that does Lipotrim, its only £33 per week. Results the same as Cambridge, but not as much choice in shakes. But you have got to really want it bad to succeed. No food or alcohol whatsoever : )

Heya, I know I am intruding on this forum, but a there are a couple of diets that myself and some others are doing/ done.

The first is Celebrity Slim, which are meal replacement shakes. They are designed though that you also include a healthy low carb evening meal. So a typical day would be:

Breakfast- Shake
Snack (healthy of course, some fruit or carrot sticks)
Lunch- Shake
Dinner- Chicken breast (grilled) with some green veg

To do Celebrity Slim costs £24.99 a week. But this does come without any of the extras that would come with Cambridge and Lighter Life. There are no counselling sessions or CBT. These you can buy from any Rowlands Pharmacy or through the website.

Another diet which is using the same principle as Celebrity Slim is called Dietmeal. Again are meal replacement shakes. These are only available to purchase from the Avidlite website, which specialises in low carb products (ie Atkins). A box of 7 shakes are £6.25. So to do the same plan as Celebrity Slim will cost you £12.50 a week. Or to do the plan sole source (just 3 shakes a day) will be £18.75.

Whatever you decide though, just try to keep smiling.
