I have had Type 2 diabetes for many years. I also suffer from leg ulcers and when I developed an infection in my right leg 3 years ago, I ended up in hospital for an extended time. This came on top of a fall where I had suffered facial fractures and the fitting of a pacemaker to deal with the damage excess weight had done to my heart.
My wife Margaret and I have young grandchildren and a lot to live for, so we both decided to try Lite n’ Easy to see if it could help us. Up until this time we had been trying to lose weight but none of the plans or diets seemed to help.
We loved the delicious meals and with the snacks and fruit provided by the meal plan, neither of us felt hungry or wanted anything other than what was provided.
As my weight dropped, I noticed that my body was relying less and less on injected Insulin. My GP has been reducing my dosage correspondingly, to a point where I have now stopped injecting altogether. I have also been able to stop a couple of my other medications.
Together we have lost 115 kilos, more than the combined weight of our granddaughters!
We have dropped many clothing sizes, but most importantly we have regained our health.
We truly believe that Lite n’ Easy is not a “diet” and that is why it works. It is an education in healthy eating and portion control. Previously, we were eating 4-5 times what we needed to maintain our bodies just because it was there, and we had cooked that much.
When we catch up with friends we have not seen for a while they are amazed at how much weight we have lost and ask how we did it.
