“I have tried Slimming Wolrd twice at two different...”

Written on: 17/04/2008

I have tried Slimming Wolrd twice at two different classes, both were run by a consultant who was so over weight themselves that I felt if you cant do it how am I supposed to. I found the food plans gave me the option to vastly over eat on what I would assume to be fattening foods for example on one day you can eat as much meat as you want!! so what about colesterol? the next day you can have meat at all??
The talks became boring as most of the talk time was spent going around asking people… Read Full Review

I found this review helpful because...<br/>I've wondered if Weight Watchers are any good. I'm put off by the fact that they have so many products in the shops and I'd expect them to push those heavily. I've tried some and been very disappointed so wouldn't want to feel I could only follow their diet plan by eating that stuff.<br/><br/>After reading this review, I might give it a try as it helps me if I have to turn up somewhere, where someone's expecting me to have lost weight.

went once and put on 3 pounds following diet didn't have a sin all week! then rejoined 2 weeks ago stuck to it perfectly and stayed the same really peed off. I was advised to have soup for a week (no thank you!!!) and told that my diet may have been very healthy to start with. It is made out to be a dead cert for weight loss. not for me! Just a waste of money!

I started in January and have lost weight every week. i find the lectures inspirational. I am never bored and if I want a different dish I log in to the internet and there is sure to be one for me.
I have done all the diets emaginable and had a great loss when it come to the end and I eat normally. This food optimizing is something I can do for life and use it on my family without them realizing that they are eating 'diet food'. There are no forbidden foods. I can eat until I feel full and am… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2008 by ems33 (1 review written)

I can think of very little to say against Slimming World diet. I have been on diets since i was a child and this is the most effective diet i have ever tried without it feeling like it was restricting me. Not only do you have an enormous amount of food to choose from, there is the permission to eat like a pig with absolutely no feelings of guilt. This is the perfect diet for anyone who, if like me have a large appetite, and need to EAT to lose weight. Wonderful. I am a smaller version of me… Read Full Review

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!

Mac99's Response to Blueberries's Review

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.
