Just thought I would share my experiences on Lite'n'Easy. I tried it for about 3 months last year. I lost 10 kilos (although I was also on Reductil at the time). It cost me about $155 a week on the 1500 cal plan (if my memory is working today!!).
The food was better than I expected in some ways, but worse in others. Their ham was horrible (manufactured). So was some of the chicken in the meals (grey and gristly in the curries). Mind you, I am fussy when it comes to meat - I go for quality over quantity, so maybe I am just too picky. In the end I got sick of the food. Even though you can choose one of two options for the day, it is similar in taste and texture throughout. I dont remember being hungry while on it. So that was a plus. I stopped just before Christmas - bad time! I have put on about 5 kilos since and I am now following the CSIRO eating plan (better for me as I have polycystic ovaries).
Regarding feeling guilty about the expense...Perhaps you could use that as a motivator to stick to it?? I agree with FutFuk though...Your hubby wants you around so no money is too much to make sure that happens!
Just a thought...you may be surprised to calculate how much you were spending on food pre-Lite'n'Easy. Especially junk. It adds up!! So much so that $155 a week may be a saving!!
LIVE YOUR LIFE LIKE A THIN PERSON....AND EVENTUALLY YOUR BODY WILL MATCH YOUR LIFESTYLE!
