    Hey guys,
    Looking through the forum threads, it seems a lot of people do LT to a point, and then switch to Cambridge Diet.
    Can anyone tell me why this is?
    What is the benefit of switching?

    Thanks :D

    I think it is mainly to do with flavour choices hun, there are a lot more on Cambridge, and there are bars (which are so much nicer than the LT flapjacks) and porridge as well. You can also have mix-a-mousse to make the shakes into mousse. The principles are the same, but the choices are greater x

    Taylor, i'm with you on that point. I view the packs as fuel, not food! I don't prolong my feeding, just have them and get on!
    I previously did Lighterlife and loved the porridge....porridge turned into a bit of an obsession when i was eating again!

    Eclipse, how did you maintain your weight loss for so long? I lost 10st on lighterlife, and put 5 st back on in a year! I didn't maintain at all.... i'm worried for when i complete this

    Hi , I am one of the people who has swapped ! I seemed to hit a wall with LT .. Ilost about 5 stone .. and suddenly felt terrible , I was weak and hungry and just felt terrible so I knew I had to do something !!!
    I descided to swap to CD to do the SS+ plan which is 3 shakes / bars etc and a very small 200 calorie meal .. and I feel loads better !!
    I knew that if I got to goal on LT and started eating again ... I would eat all the wrong things . As I hated the LT shakes so much .. as soon as I tasted real food again my taste buds went mad and I felt that I needed to swap to be able to learnt to control my eating .. you work up steps , gradually introducing more foods amd less shakes etc and it teaches you restraint and how to eat healthily .
    LT is great to loose the bulk but I also wanted my weight loss to slow down to give my body a chance to catch up .. it is harder to stick to , and the shakes , bars etc are sooo yummy that it IS tempting to have an extra one .. but there you learn control .
