The Slim & Save Lifestyle Plan allows for three of our food packs each day along with a low carbohydrate meal. The Lifestyle Plan is ideal if you want to sit down and have a meal with your family or if you think you will miss having a conventional meal each day.
The food packs can be anything from our range, shakes, meals, soups and bars. There is a limit to one bar only per day; all the other packs have no restrictions.
Each food pack provides 25% RDA of essential vitamins & minerals, you will therefore need to ensure you either have a varied selection of vegetables in your low carb meal or take a multi-vitamin and mineral (without Iron unless instructed by your Doctor) to get the remaining 25%.
