Written on: 07/12/2007

I've been with Slimming World for 4 weeks now, and have lost very nearly a stone! I started as a near 17st, mid 20's woman with low self esteem. Now I feel great, can feel the difference already, and look forward to every week's session. I love the fact I can still eat chips(homemade using fry light), and ice cream(fat free), also following the sweet tooth recipes from the website have been a godsend for those tempting moments.
Would recommend to anyone!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/12/2007 by bumblebee12 (2 reviews written)

I have tried Slimming World twice and I found it quite good as I could eat all the pasta that I wanted on a green day and on a red day I could fill up on meat. I also liked it that I could still have a treat such as a take away or a chocolate bar, as long as it was counted in my points for that day.

The downside is you can start to take advantage of the fact you are allowed treats and eat more than ususal while kidding yourself that it's ok because it's within my points. I also found the 2… Read Full Review

I have tried swimming world twice and it did work both times. I know they do cater for 'shift workers' - BUT - I work for myself and am often unable to attend classes for up to 4 weeks at a time at certain times of the year, Bit annoying that we have to still pay for these missed classes.All in all would recommend though as their diet does work… Read Full Review

Annadoodle's Response to annadoodle's Review

Written on: 08/08/2007

I saw the results pretty much straight away - as long as you stick to the rules you never do feel really hungry, it's up to the individual to avoid the temptation and pop one of the free foods into their mouth rather then bingeing on sins. I had around 2 stone to lose an although i never did reach my target (changed my target when I got to what I considered my ideal weight) I was all in all happy with the weight loss and the diet, I would join again, if slimming world were more flexible about missing classes (explained previous may be away for a few weeks at a time and a bit discouraging having to pay all the back fees) as I said - if you stick to the rules you should lose weight without feeling hungry.

Joined slimming world five weeks ago. Tried really hard, doing every thing by the book and have only lost three pounds. Don't understand why. Feeling down hearted. Really like the plan it just isn't working for me.

I've done Slimming World a few times and must say it worked a treat! Lost weight easily without feeling starved. I found that doing some form of exercise (even just walking for about 30-60 minutes a day or every other day) regularly really helps to speed up the weight loss!

Written on: 07/08/2007

Rayche.....I haven't tried Slimming World, but know people who swear by it. I admit that 3Ibs in 5 weeks sounds fairly unusual. I know that doing everything 'by the book' and then only losing minimum weight can be depressing. However, don't give up. Weight loss all depends on any number of factors......How much weight you have to lose, exercise levels, and commitment to writing down each and every morsel which passes your lips!
<br/>1-2 Ibs per week should be average, but staying the same weight is also an achievement. I would persevere a little longer, then if you are still not happy then there are other weight loss plans that may suit you better. You just have to find the right one. Good luck!

Written on: 30/10/2006 by djeva1 (51 reviews written)

When I joined a local Slimming World group near to me, I was looking forward to meeting a warm friendly group, but I was wrong and I was quite disappointed with the consultant because she did not explain to me clearly about the healthy extras and how to use them or how to fill out the weekly diaries and I was left confused. The next time I came to the group, the consultant became abrupt and cold when I told her that I did not understand how to food optimise and therefore was unable to fill out… Read Full Review

Please try another consultant. I have had to change groups due to family commitments and both consultants have been great. Not everyone liked my first one but I did. I guess it's a bit like teachers at school. Some you get on with others you don't. But overall consulants are there to encourage you. I am sorry you had a bad experience but please try again as the eating plan really works.

I am a consultant for Slimming World and I would like to clear up the misconception that you cannot have chocolate whilst Food Optimising - yes you can as long as you weigh it and count the syn value. Secondly the reason that pure fruit juices are syns is because they are known as wasteful calories, Slimming World pride themselves on free foods and the purpose of a free food is to fill you up, e.g. if you eat an orange whole it will fill you up however if you juice it it will quench your thirst but not have the same affect as eating it therefore you will go on to consume more calories which could be detrimental to your weight loss.

Actually, you can have a little chocolate every now and again as a treat as a sin. Therefore, you should not feel so deprived as on other diets, but what surprised me was the fact that pure fruit juices are also sin values.

Slimming World: I have been dieting with Rosemary Conley for about 3 1/2 years and although I have lost a lot of weight with them I found for the last few months I have been yo-yoing up and down and I didn't like the new diet coupled with the fact that the instructor was not very encouraging if you are having a bad time of it.

I joined Slimming World 3 weeks ago and I was worried as I had followed a completely different diet (abeit a month before I joined I had not dieted properly) anyway in 2… Read Full Review

After losing nearly 2 stones myself, I went forward for Slimming World consultant training and a year on am running two very successfull groups in the Worthing area. All consultants are recruited from membership to ensure 100% commitment which is passed on to new members. The plan is very liberating, easy to follow and becomes a way of life within days. Good comittment results in excellent weight loss - the group support gives a weekly boost to your motivation and all you need to know about the… Read Full Review

I have found that a lot of the recipes in the Slimming World magazines and books look to extravagant and take too long to prepare. I found this difficult, because I work full time hours and do not have a lot of time to cook.

Written on: 27/02/2006 by tibbs1cat (3 reviews written)

I've cheated a bit on the diet because I bought the books off the internet so I didn't have to pay every week to go to Slimming World but I just follow it exactly same and it really is as easy as people tell you. In the first 3 weeks I lost 16 lb! and 2 weeks after that I lost another 10 lb so I now weigh just under 15 stone. It can be hard to see the weight loss yourself apart from when you get weighed so when people keep saying 'oh haven't you lost weight' you get a real buzz and you know it… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2005 by Mazz25 (14 reviews written)

I've been with Slimming World for 3 weeks now and have lost 7lbs. I'd been on it before, but came off it due to not feeling the support I needed from the group (now a changed group!).

In case your wondering, I lost a stone in 5 weeks last time.

It's definitely worth the money, and definitely worth the commitment.

I would recommend anyone wanting to lose weight to give it a go! If you love food, you will love this diet. It's healthy... you can't complain… Read Full Review

The Slimming World diet can take some getting used to, for example most fruit and veg is free on both days green and red, however peas, parsnips and potatoes are limited on the red days due to there high carb intake. Fundementally its a healthy eating plan which limits your Kcal and fat intake with out counting Kcal or fat grams. However you can over eat which is its only downfall, if you over eat you will not loss those lbs!… Read Full Review

As a Slimming World consultant and member having lost 7 stones and that all important 1/2 a pound, I cant say enough about it. Slimming world's food optimising plan is more about healthy eating and no-way seems like a diet. It not only helps you to eat healthy and lose weight, but it helps you to feel great inside and out. I would urge anyone out there who is stuggling with their weight to log onto the slimming world website and find their nearest class. It will be the start of a new life and… Read Full Review
