Today is the day to make that change and join LighterLife! These people did and have achieved truly life-changing weight loss. Here, in their own words, drawing on their own experiences, they respond to some frequently asked questions about LighterLife…
Do you have to go to groups? What benefit do they have?
There were some in my group who you could tell were after a short-term fix; they just wanted to lose weight. But the majority of us really got involved in the conversations and the group work, and we’re the ones who have kept the weight off.

Isn’t LighterLife expensive?
No! Not when you think about it. I found that I actually saved money on LighterLife. Before I started, I never realised how much I spent on food. LighterLife is really good value for money – especially as it includes weekly group support. It’s definitely worth it. After all, you can’t put a price on your health!
Is LighterLife safe?
I think there’s sometimes a misconception that because you lose the weight quickly on LighterLife, it must be unsafe. That was my initial reaction when I first heard about LighterLife. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, it was my doctor who recommended LighterLife to me – and many other patients.
I was also reassured when I found out that the programme had been running for 20 years. It’s proof that it works. The Foodpacks give you your full daily nutrition, so you don’t have to worry about not eating enough or lacking any essential vitamins or minerals in your diet.
I dropped 6st in 3 months back in 2006 and never felt healthier. Before LighterLife I had sleep apnoea, varicose veins and frequent migraines, and was constantly out of breath. Now, all my ailments are gone. I feel younger, fitter and full of energy, and I sleep much more soundly!
Is it really time consuming? I’m a busy working mum with three kids.
My husband and I run a family butcher business in Devon and have three children – I never seem to have a spare minute! When I told my LighterLife Counsellor that I didn’t think I had time to do the programme, she said, ‘That’s part of the problem. You don’t have time for you!’ LighterLife is only one session a week – and in that time you can forget about everything for a while and focus on you and your wellbeing. I did and I lost 9st. It’s worth every minute.
