I lost 3 stone on LL & found it great. I do think though that you have to do the RTM as it's so much harder when foods introduced. It's soooo easy to think "that bit of cake won't hurt" trouble is it leads to other bits of cake! I thought I would be able to carry on losing weight with RTM but I'm not but I am keeping it in control. It's easy to forget the rules if you come off foundation & left to your own devices.
