The secret to life-changing weight loss is to understand how your mind works. That’s why LighterLife is so much more than a plan for weight loss – it also provides a great opportunity to explore why you overeat in the first place. Our members have all been on inspirational journeys and learnt how to change their lives, for good.
How does LighterLife work?
LighterLife was created by a group of people who’d battled obesity over the years and felt existing diets were woefully inadequate. They wanted to create a unique programme that would not only help people lose weight but understand, challenge and listen to them so they could change long-term.
What sets LighterLife apart?
LighterLife is unique because of its psychological group work. It focuses on how and why you overeat, so you can change. The programme combines a very-low-calorie diet consisting of nutritionally complete, meal-replacement Foodpacks with weekly 90-minute groups, in which people can totally re-evaluate their choices.
Why use Foodpacks?
Foodpacks allow us the opportunity to step back from conventional food and see what we’ve been doing to ourselves – how we’ve been using food, and maybe even alcohol, as a mechanism to cope with life. They’re the closest we can get to abstinence, physically and emotionally.
What will I learn at the group sessions?
LighterLife was the first national long-term weight-loss programme to introduce ground-breaking psychology into its small weekly groups. This is so important for keeping the weight off long term.
Jane Donald, 44, who dropped four dress sizes in four months on LighterLife, says: ‘I learnt to separate genuine hunger from imagined hunger. In my group I learnt that I used food to cope with problems, which I’d been doing since I was a little girl.’
If I’m on a low-calorie diet will I be tired?
Absolutely not. LighterLifer Jane said she felt better than ever during her weight-loss phase. ‘I was full of energy and my mood dramatically lifted,’ she said. ‘My skin, hair and nails improved. I was getting compliments about my weight loss, which was pretty inspiring too.’
