LighterLife FAST

I was recently asked if I would like to review the new LighterLife Fast range. Having seen lots of facebook status' and tweets about people doing 5:2 diets I was intrigued. Reading further information about LighterLife Fast, it seemed to me that it was a great way to kick start my new year new me plan.

LighterLife say that they have the very first 100% nutritional 5:2 product, the FAST programme has been designed to make intermittent fasting easy as well as nutritionally complete, ensuring you receive all your needed nutrients on your fasting days. It is currently on sale (exclusively) in Superdrug stores. I was pleased to read about these nutrients, because one of the first things that crossed my mind when reading about the 5:2 diet was how can you get everything your body needs by doing this?

So with my mind at rest I said yes and this is what I was sent...

I was very excited to see the chocolate milkshake and the toffee bars, I love my chocolate and sweet things are my falling block when it comes to cutting back or dieting!

I have been on the LighterLife 5:2 diet for over a week now, so wanted to give you my thoughts so far. I have found the diet easy in the respect that its only 2 days that you diet. So that has pulled me through my fast days so far, knowing that the next day I would be allowed to eat more! I like the fact that the range has a lot of variety. You can have any 4 packs from the LighterLife fast range per fasting day. So if you do not like one variety, there's always another!

Having tried what was sent out to me, I can confirm that I would happily eat the Toffee bars for all of my fasting days! Everyone has different tastes and sadly my taste buds did not think much of the milkshakes or porridge. I think that this is because they are made up with water, I think this must flatten the taste a bit. To me all I could taste were the added nutrients! The soup was tolerable and I would consider that fasting pack again. The dinner meals for me we not what I would pick, and that is simply because you have to rehydrate the food with water, it did not appeal to me at all. What I do love is the fact that you do not have to worry about counting calories, its all done for you, all you have to count is 4 packs per fasting day! Easy!

Like I say everyone has different tastes, so toffee bars it is for me! I also think I would quite like the cranberry and raspberry bars. I have a sweet tooth! Weight wise I lost 2lb in my first week. I am happy with that, I really didn't think I was going to loose, especially as although you eat sensibly for the other 5 days you are only really dieting for 2!

I am going to carry on with the 5:2 diet using some of the LighterLife Fast packs to help me along the way!
