    Isn't lighter life a total food replacement diet and slimming world just a regular diet? This is the Slim Fast forum you'd get a better response if you posted this in the Lighter Life or Slimming World forums :)

    Diet:
    was on Slim Fast but changed to Slimming world and Xenical
    kind of similar, but different.
    slimfast you have 2 of your meals as shakes or bars, 1 main meal of no more than 600 cals, and up to 3 snacks at no more than 100cals
    lighterlife is a complete meal reaplacement programe...
    you may want to chat to some of the lighterlife people and find out what it fully involves....
    lighter life is also costly....

    I did lighter life and am now doing slim fast as a lower cost healthier option.
    Whilst I had very good results with Lighter Life, 6 months of meal replacements played havoc with my body and it is a complete lifestyle change. I'm hoping that with Slimfast I can take all of the good parts of LL and still enjoy a nice meal with my family in the evening.
    The things I liked about lighter life were -
    The strict regime - I simply didn't buy food for myself
    The lack of choice - Took away the decisions about what I wanted to consume
    The results - fast.

    However it cost me the best part of £2000, my gall bladder and a feeling of being a "normal" person - whatever that is!

    I wouldn't change any of my decisions as I now know what it is like to be in a thin persons body, I'd just change the way I handled it.

    Good luck, whatever you chose

    ur gall bladder?! Dude - extreme!! LOL
    My flat mate did LL, and she looked AMAXING after a short while, but now she's easily as big as she was if not bigger... but then again Ive put the weight bk on which I lost doing this last yr... but I have totally binged since august, so its hardly surprising. Im sure its not that easy 2 put bk on if u eat normally!
    I couldnt do LL. The fact that I could NEVER eat Real food would do my head in!!
