I have had Type 2 diabetes for many years and increasing difficulty in managing my weight. I also suffer with leg ulcers and when I developed an infection in my right leg I ended up in hospital for an extended time on intravenous antibiotics. At the time I was self-injecting up to 90 units of fast acting insulin three times a day as well as 30 units of slow insulin twice a day.

This came on top of a fall where I had suffered facial fractures and the fitting of a pacemaker to deal with the damage done to my heart.

My weight was putting such a strain on my knees that it was a real effort to walk very far, climbing stairs was a great difficult and any sort of actual exercise was out of the question.

My treating doctor told me that if I didn’t lose weight NOW, then I would not be around in 6-12 months.

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 found with Lite n’ Easy that we started losing weight from the get-go.

We loved the delicious meals and with the snacks provided by the plan, neither of us felt hungry or wanting anything other than what was provided. I started out on the recommended 1800 calorie plan and Margaret on 1500 calories. As we lost weight, we dropped to the 1500 and 1200 calorie plans respectively.

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 136 kilos, more than the combined weight of our granddaughters!

We have dropped many 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 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.

We always say Lite n’ Easy is the best thing we have ever done!
