Weight loss tips: Take LighterLife on holiday with you!

August 13, 2014 - Weight loss tips

holidayHolidays don’t have to result in the dreaded ‘all inclusive belly’ when you get back! LighterLife makes it easy for you to stay on track with your weight loss and still have fun while you’re away. Here’s what you need to know…

LighterLife makes weight loss easy with just a few simple rules to follow while you’re on the plan – if you’re on Total, you’ll eat four Foodpacks a day, and when you’re on Lite it’s three Foodpacks a day, plus a meal. If you’ve planned a holiday this summer, you can continue to follow your plan while you’re away – meaning you can spend less time worrying about food and more time enjoying your well-earned break!

Hold luggage
Most airlines accept you carrying Foodpacks in your hold luggage without any issues. Do check with your individual airline just to make sure it’s fine to do so for the destination you are travelling to.

Hand luggage
Carrying LighterLife Foodpacks in your hand luggage shouldn’t be a problem, but make sure your packs are unopened and undamaged. It’s worth bearing in mind that individual airlines may operate different policies on hand luggage, so if you are concerned, do give them a quick call in advance to check on this.

Travelling to the US
For US trips, we wouldn’t recommend taking Mousse Mix, as current import regulations don’t permit entry – although other Foodpacks (including shakes, meals, bars and soups) should be fine.

Border-entry controls in some countries may require information regarding the use and content of Foodpacks, so we’ve produced a letter about them that you can present if requested, along with a list of ingredients. Contact your LighterLife Centre for more information.

Keep up to date
Since countries outside the EU have widely differing regulation on food imports, it’s always a good idea to check ahead of time. One of the best sources of information is the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s travel advice section here, where you can search for advice and links by country, or you could contact the embassy of the country you’re visiting directly.

If you have any other questions, drop us a message on Facebook or Twitter or ring us on 0800 2 988 988.

Have a great holiday, and keep up the good work with your LighterLife plan!
