Our foodpacks are made out of the same stuff as ordinary food and have been designed to enjoy on plan to achieve your weight loss goals, or to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle once you’ve hit your target. They contain the highest quality ingredients and have identical nutrition levels. Total diet replacement (TDR) is another way of describing a very-low-calorie diet (VLCD).
TYPES OF FOODPACK
Did you know that European regulations dictate what goes into our LighterLife Foodpacks?
TDR VLCD Foodpacks in our online shop are displayed with the TDR logo and have around 150 kcal. Our 150 kcal range includes Blueberry Pancakes, Chocolate Mug Cake, Spaghetti Bolognese and Porridge, as well as Soups, Shakes and Bars
Meal-replacement Foodpacks in our online shop are displayed with the MRP logo and are around 200 kcal. Our 200 kcal range includes Thai Noodle and Chicken Noodle FastPots, Chocolate Raisin bars, Berry Smoothie and Superfood Green Soup
On the TotalFast Plan you can choose from either: 4 x 150 kcal Foodpacks or 3 x 150 kcal Foodpacks + 1 x 200 kcal meal-replacement. FlexiFasting: you choose a combination of Foodpacks and conventional food depending on your plan. Management uses a 5:2 FlexiFasting approach.
Our extra-special extras are all carefully formulated to keep you on track and displayed with the EXTRA logo in our online shop. Our Popped Chip range are all under 100 kcal and can be enjoyed as part of your FlexiFasting plan, and occasionally (twice a week) on the TotalFast plan.
FULL NUTRITION IN AROUND 600 KCAL
Our TDR products give you all the nutrition you need in four Foodpacks a day. It’s impossible to get all the protein, fibre, carbs, essential fats, vitamins and minerals you need from 600 kcal of ordinary food. And they are the best quality: research presented at a European Congress on Obesity showed that out of 11 VLCDs on sale in the UK in 2014, only our Foodpacks had the right amount of nutrition.
Our TotalFast plan is low enough in Calories and carbs to switch your body into burning fat (stored food) for the bulk of your energy – a natural metabolic state called ketosis (our meal-replacements are higher in carbs than our VLCD products, so having more than one a day on Total could tip you out of ketosis). It also has enough high-quality protein to keep lean muscle healthy – including the heart – while you’re losing weight. Ketosis generally suppresses appetite, so on TotalFast any hunger you do notice is likely to be about what’s happening in your head not what’s going into your mouth – which is what you explore in our CBT groups.
