Default Diet Food

Can anyone recommend a good diet food for Rolo?
He is currently on Royal Canin but at 25 quid for a 6kg bag its NOT cheap!
Anywhere you can buy it online cheaper would also be useful!

I don't generally subscribe to "diet" foods, however I found Skinners (Duck and Rice not any of their Diet types) made my Mojo lose weight and I had to feed her a fair bit more than the JWB to keep weight on her.

If mine have ever needed to lose a bit of weight, all I do is reduce their rations by about a 1/3 and added some green veg to bulk up their meals a bit.

I had Que on Arden Grange light for several months, to lose some weight slowly but surely. It was very good and kept her satisfied. Given her history of an awful puppyfarm, I didn't want to cut down her rations so she thought I was starving her (as probably happened in her previous life). She was very content and lost 10kgs over a year. I couldn't increase her exercise due to her health problems and half-paw.

I expect it is around 28 for a 15kg bag now.
