More than three decades of research

LighterLife’s founding directors, Bar Hewlett and Jackie Cox, first met in 1988 as research subjects on a study of very-low-calorie diets (VLCDs). They quickly realised the potential for creating a programme that goes far beyond a diet, combining the weight loss of a total dietary replacement VLCD with the group support that helps you get to grips with why you eat the way you do.
The result is the LighterLife Programme – a unique way of helping you create a new relationship with both food and yourself, so you can say goodbye to yo-yo dieting and finally be the person you want to be, at the weight you want to be. It’s so much more effective than just worrying about calories.
