My thoughts on the latest additions to the LighterlifeFAST range

I did the LighterlifeFAST 5:2 this summer. My experience was a positive one - weight loss mixed with tasty shakes, scrummy snack bars and filling dinners. I was honest, as always, whilst blogging through my 5:2 journey using the LighterlifeFAST packs and had to share my feelings about the Spaghetti Bolognese. I really didn't like it all - I never even finished one serving out of the whole box, I just couldn't.



LighterlifeFAST got in touch with me recently and asked if I would like to try their latest additions to the range so I thought, why not? I enjoyed the 5:2 plan and all but the one of the fast packs so let's see if the new additions where as good as the majority (or as bad as the bolognese!)

I was sent 2 items; Curry and Pink Grapefruit Drink.

LighterlifeFAST Curry.
Upon opening the sachet, the aroma instantly makes an impact on you. This actually smells like a real curry! Microwave for 4 minutes after having mixed the sachet's contents with 5oz of hot water, stirring once half way through, and the dish is done.

The portion is small, but then at 155 calories per serving what can you expect?! It doesn't really look like curry, more a mince based chilli of sorts, but the dish is both aromatic and flavoursome, with a real texture to it too. There's no denying that this is curry going by the flavours! You can actually chew on the meat and feel the rice in your mouth, which is great.

I used 5oz as recommended to make this dish but it was really filling with quite a heavy feel to it. Perhaps add an extra oz of water to thin it out a little, giving some more sauce.

It's the most 'normal food' flavoured LighterlifeFAST Fast Pack dinner of them all if you ask me. I rate the curry!

They retail at £8.99 for a pack of 4, exclusively at Superdrug.

LighterlifeFAST Pink Grapefruit Juice Drink.
This drink has been introduced as an added extra to the 4 fast packs a day on your LighterlifeFAST days. Make 1 litre of juice with just one sachet, and you get 10 sachets per box. That's a lot of calorie free juice! The best thing about a sachet making a litre is that it reminds you to get your daily fluid in take. If the jug's sitting half full in the fridge before you go to bed at night, you've not drank enough!

Sometimes, water just isn't fulfilling, and when 'dieting' it can make you feel like you're missing out - often having a counterproductive effect.

This is a real thirst quencher with a fabulously fruity flavour. (I love it - I'm drinking some right now whilst typing this up.) You could even make your own lolly-ices using this juice so it gives something further different to your diet, that isn't counted towards your fast pack allowance of 4 per day. Definitely a fan of this new addition!

They retail at £9.49 for a pack of 10, exclusively at Superdrug.


DISCLAIMER: I WAS SENT THE ABOVE SAMPLES FOR THE PURPOSE OF REVIEW. 
I WASN'T PAID FOR THIS POST AND ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN - OPEN AND HONEST AS ALWAYS.

  3. Sound like some great new additions to the range glad you liked them. They don't sound like something I would like though to be honest being fussy and all that!
