New to the forum (will get around to doing an intro) and wondering if anyone has had problems wth Lite N Easy.
I've been on it for 7 weeks and lost 8.8 kg. Started at 116.3, now 107.5.
Very happy indeed with the progress, considering there has not been one bit of exercise yet. That parts harder to motivate myself to do. But thats another story.
I'm relatively happy with the quality (we can't expect 'gourmet' from a prepacked ready to go diet) and the amount of food (considering it is a 'diet', I don't expect a hungry jacks wopper each night)
, but what I am finding VERY frustrating is the mistakes in packaging. Not major mistakes like main full main meals missing, but very regular smaller items are missing, for instance my apple sultana pancake for afternoon tea, the muffin for my egg and tomato muffin, the beef pattie for my beef 'burger' etc etc. The past 5 weeks I've had one or 2 missing items each week. It doesn't sound like much, but there is limited amount of food, I'm paying good money, and there is a lack of other food in the house to tempt me, so I have to go without. Its supposed to be 'convenient', but when you spend 15 minutes looking through 20 bags of food to find a missing item (which doesn't turn up), it aint very convenient.
The sales consultant I've been emailing has been apologetic (whether genuine or not), however the last few weeks my order is supposedly undergoing 'supervisor checks' to ensure it doesn't happen. Guess what, it still does.
She's now claiming its only me which I find hard to believe. Quote "I would also agree that any error is one too many, but it is all the more frustrating when they seem to happen to the same customer! The chances of this are as you can imagine very odd".
The other thing I mentioned to her that on 2 occasions I've had my yoghurt (which is yummy by the way) put in my non-refrigerated snack bag. She claims all bags are supposed to be refrigerated (or frozen). Funny that there are 2 snack bags - one that has frozen mini meals, bread and frozen 'slices' etc - pretty obvious its for the freezer. Whereas the other snack bag has popcorn, muesli bars, biscuits, crackers, tin of baked beans (yuk) and is the only bag (other than the obvious frozen item bag) that doesn't have 'keep refigerated' on it. Only on 2 occasions did it have the yoghurt, whereas every other time for the 7 weeks the yoghurt has been bundled as usual in the appropriate refrigerated breakfast or lunch bag for that day. Surely common sense (clearly not common) would tell 99% of customers that bag doesn't need to be refrigerated? How many of you would keep those items in the fridge if you hadn't seen yoghurt in it?
Anyway, either I'm sleep walking and eating my goodies, or the dogs have worked out how to open the fridge when I'm not looking.
I'm very frustrated and very tempted to go back to my old ways than stuff around with this Lite N Easy, then to be accused of either lying or being so unlucky I'm the only customer having problems is beyond belief.
I'll point out too I'm not eating other stuff from other days - because obviously I then go hungry (hungrier) on the day it was designed for. I'm not that stupid.
I'm a guy by the way - my wife (who has stopped it, she wasn't happy with the type of food) was not having problems, but I put that down to the fact that she on the 1200 calorie as opposed to me on the 1800 has a lot less goodies in her packets to actually get missed out, not to mention she wasn't really eating it all (and wouldn't know if she was missing them).
Thanks for letting me vent my frustration, and I'm wondering if anyone else on Lite N Easy are having problems? In particular if you are in NSW as she reckons mistakes are 'very low' here.
As a side pointer, I'd like to know what stuff you really like on the diet. I particularly like the Bobotie frozen dinner, the chicken laksa mini meals and LOVE the pineapple and date slice. Dislike with a vengeance the light fruit cake (how can you stuff a fruit cake??!!), the chicken brandy pate, and the Pepper steak frozen meal (Frozen PAL!).
