5 sweet snacks all WELL UNDER £1 per serve

When you’re trying to lose weight on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, you’d be forgiven for initially thinking that:

  1. snacking between meals would be a no-no
  2. there would be nothing sweet allowed on the meal plans (especially not chocolate), and
  3. healthy food would be expensive and difficult to prepare

Well thanks to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we have proven all of the above fears WRONG!

£1-Snack-Collage

That’s right! You can lose weight in a healthy way with 3 meals and 3 snacks per day on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

There is no starving yourself, no skipping meals, no missing out on treats, and no need to spend a fortune doing it! In fact snacking can help you LOSE WEIGHT as you don’t get so hungry that you end up overeating your main meals.

5 sweet snacks all WELL UNDER £1 per serve

With the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge you can make SO MANY of the snacks for under a pound per serve. As you can see below, many of them are waaaaay below that. One is just 19p per serve!

Why not join us on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and lose weight with thousands of other mums across the UK.
