My cat has a grain allergy and it's been a struggle to find a food that he'll eat, is grain free, and doesn't break the bank. My old roommate fed his cat Beyond and my boy loved it. I was happy to find it wasn't horribly expensive too! But it sadly did not go well from there. After only 2 months of eating Beyond, my reasonably small cat had gained a ridiculous amount of weight. He is not as active as a kitten but he certainly isn't a lazy cat. He plays a lot and runs around. He is healthy (aside from now being overweight) and there is no reason for the weight change other than the food. Maybe if you have an underweight or extremely active cat this food might be a good option but be cautious if your cat is already overweight or not particularly active.
