LighterLife is a unique method of dieting. They refer to it as 5:2 dieting. This means that you fast for two days and eat normally for the rest of the week.

Fasting? Isn't that what saintly people do to be nearer to their god/s, by declining to eat food?

Whilst that's not wrong, it's not how the concept of the fast is understood at LighterLife.

The LighterLife two day fasts means that instead of earing "ordinary" foods for those two days.

What do these consist of? A variety of meals. There are tasty toffee flavour bars that are high in protein and also high in fibre (and which do have a delicious toffee flavour, in case you are wondering!) and there are some tempting spaghetti bolognese meals.

You have to eat all four bars or all four meals throughout the day and each box will be the equivalent of one day's fasting.

The bolognese flavour meals are also high in protein and fibre.

They are all packed with the necessary vitamins, minerals and nutrients,  both containing 100% of the RDAs.

The LighterLife range is exclusive to the highly popular Superdrug chain.

The range also consists of  Fast Americana Chicken flavour FastPot, 2 LighterLife Fast Cantonese Black Beans flavour FastPot and a range of other tasty meals, shakes, bars, etc.

However, they do point out that the product is unsuitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women or people who have diabetes that is controlled by medication.
