Looking to lose weight without feeling like you’re on a constant diet… are you feeling fed up of counting calories and eating bland food… do you want to enjoy mealtimes with your family without cooking separate meals for everyone AND still lose weight?  You’ve come to the right place!

LighterLife Fast has created the Fast Philosophy, a simple weight loss plan based on intermittent fasting.

We understand that dieting can be hard and we’re here to change that. By following The Fast Philosophy you can lose up to 2lb each week whilst living life on your terms!

What is Fasting?

Fasting is a way of eating that’s been around for a very long time.  To Fast is to reduce your calorie intake within a dedicated time period, you may have heard of 5:2 or 16:8 which are both forms of fasting.

With the LighterLife Fast plan you’ll be following an intermittent fasting approach where each week you’ll allocate Fast Days and Smart Days.

It’s quite simple –

Choose the days each week you’d like to Fast.  We recommend 3 days each week; they can be consecutive or spread throughout the week – whatever suits you.

On your Fast days there’s no calorie counting or meal prep, simply pick 4 meals from the range that’s exclusive to Superdrug.  There are almost 40 different meals to choose from, so sweet or savoury you’ll be set.

Enjoy the 4 Fast meals along with calorie free drinks such as water, black coffee or herbal tea.  You could also have sugar free squash; have you tried the LighterLife Fast Pink Grapefruit Drink, it’s delish and very refreshing.

And the days you’re not fasting…

These are your Smart days where you think smart about the meals you consume.

When you follow The Fast Philosophy your Smart days should consist of:

  • 2 x 300 calorie meals
  • 2 x 100 calorie snacks
  • 1 x meal of your choice

but we’re not going to leave you with just that!

We’ve provided free seasonal recipes, tips and tricks (such as weight trackers and mindful eating guides) in our members area –The Fast Zone – where you can download all you need to keep you motivated and on track.   We update the recipes every month so there’s always something new to try.

Dieting every day clearly didn’t work for me and finding something which fit in with my shifts was hard. The Fast Philosophy made it so easy. It was simple to follow, even on the Smart days, and the flexible nature of the plan meant that when my shifts changed then so could my Fast days.
