    Congrats on your progress thus far but "eat lean cuisine meals" is not necessary (I personally don't consider it even desirable, I mean...no). Best of luck to you!

    Given a choice between Lean Cuisine and gnawing on forest bugs, I'd need some time to think about it, but other than that, congrats!

    I've started bringing Lean Cuisines to work, they're easy and are actually more tasty than I expected. I don't have/make the time to meal prep, so they work great. Much better than the Special K protein bar I used to have for lunch every day.

    Good luck!!

    Ignore people who are badmouthing lean cuisine. If, for now, it is your easiest path forward then do it. One of my friends was able to lose all of his weight with SlimFast and maintain that loss for 3 years and running still using SF off and on when his weight goes up slightly. To him it has been simple and easy. I tried it a few times years ago and couldn't make it work.

    I would advise having another plan lined up for yourself just in case you grow tired of eating LC. It is better to have your plan centered around a calorie deficit than centered around a specific meal plan.

    I'm not a Lean Cuisine fan, but I'm totally in love with the Jimmy Dean english muffins as a quick and easy lunch grab & go item!

    congrats to you, keep it up... While I have nothing against lean cuisine dinners, it takes around 4 of those suckers to fill me up!

    Great job! I’m thinking of trying a pre-packaged dinner type thing because even though I cook very healthy I’m also a pretty great cook (😉)and too much healthy food is still too much food! Lol

    Lean cuisines! I have always stayed away from them as they seem to be VERY high in sodium. I would probably try other alternatives instead. But great 👍🏻 job on your health progress. That’s the most important part.

    I was quickly dissatisfied with the cost and the plastic packaging of pre-packed meals.

    Here's what I do now: Got an electric pressure cooker to make meal prep FAST, and using a food scale, pack a bunch of 16oz wide mouth glass mason jar with a meal, date it, put the calorie count on the label and toss it in the freezer. Voila - I've just replaced Lean cuisine and it's lookalikes for about 1/4 of the cost, and, with a nicer carbon footprint.

    Congrats on losing 10lbs thus far. I am also using lean cuisine for lunch during the week. Best of luck on your weight loss journey.
