Written on: 05/11/2010

Pros: Healthy way to lose weight, can save syns for special ocassions or weekend if you want to, can eat normal food you can buy from supermarket so can be cheap, can fill yourself up on free foods, does work if stuck to.
Cons: Can get boring if you don't have the time/money to make up more imagitive meals.

Written on: 04/11/2010

I have tried almost every diet known to man/woman. I am 55 and have been following the Slimming World plan for 8 weeks and have lost 24lbs. At my first meeting I said it was impossible to eat this much food and lose weight. Well proved myself wrong. Don't feel fixated with food as there is always something 'free' to eat. Feel well on myself and even eating out is not a problem. Feel for once that this is achievable. Give it a go you've nothing to lose but extra pounds!… Read Full Review

What a load of old tosh!!!! I have eaten everything in sight before finding the SYN value, what a weak lame excuse for not having a backbone. It isn't easy to lose weight, or at least that is what I thought. Minus 37lbs in 8 weeks, but not just the Slimming World plan to thank for that, as have been exercising and had started before joining a class (about 2 weeks earlier). SW actually promote exercise, but they can't take credit for getting me started.
<br/>
<br/>Hopefully this very poor review won't stop overweight people with even the slightest amount of will power from getting started on what is an easy to follow and sensible plan of food optimising.

Written on: 29/10/2010

I joined Slimming World because I wanted to loose the 2.5 stones I'd gained by eating the same portions as my partner (a male, and over a foot taller than me!) over a 12 months period! I didn't want to spend my life counting numbers like Weight Watchers as I don't think this is a natural way to live. Slimming World worked very well in the early months, it's basically common sense, the 2 stones came off steadily over a year and that's great, however, getting this last half stone off is a real… Read Full Review

Ive been doing Slimming world online for 6 months, Ive had no group support yet I have managed to shed over 3 stone! I am thrilled to say the least. I have a young family so family friendly meals were key, I bought plenty of books for recipe inspiration and my kids have tucked into these meals with no fuss :)
I would recommend this lifestyle change to everyone! I now have the knowledge of what to put together in meals, I have never gone hungry and still managed to keep up my exercise routine… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2010

Ok. So my mother goes to slimming world and while she is on the diet it has been very succesful. I, however, have been slowly gaining weight since i left school.
Last WEEK i asked my mum to cook me meals based on the slimming world plan. I'm a pretty fussy eater so i have a very small amount of dishes but i dont get bored.
I am NEVER hungry on this plan and my snacking habits have been eliminated by the free fruit.
10 days.....15.5 stone to 14.11....I'm going to stick with this!… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2010

My leader at Garforth, Leeds group was so obese it was embarrassing and she admitted she did not follow the slimming world plan anymore.

Being able to eat as much of a certain food is not helpful as that is why I put on weight in the first place.

I stuck at SW for one month and lost 1/2 pound. I saw the leader in Greggs buying sausage rolls for herself and quit. I have since joined weight watchers and lost one stone in six months.

Written on: 21/07/2010 by sylv1 (1 review written)

I have had a weight problem since I can remember. I always went to weight watchers, but this time I felt I needed a new challenge, so I joined Slimming World. At first I found it a bit difficult to get my head around it, but once I grasp the concept of not mixing protein and carbs (on original and green) and filling up on free foods it was simple and the weight has dropped off me. I am now at Target and lost a total of 35 pounds ( 2 stone 7Ib )and gone from a size 16 to size 10 in 22 weeks… Read Full Review

I found this review helpful because...I went to WW lost loads of weight and was a WW Leader; have tried going back but nothing has changed still counting points and as I have just been told to follow a high fibre diet which I understand you can do on Slimming World, have decided to give it a go. This review has given me encouragement. Thanks

Written on: 05/12/2010

4 weeks is a small period of time to judge the plan on, and you have made some progress. How much might you have normally put on over that period? probably about a pound.
<br/>
<br/>I think the plan is great, I am a guy, and do loads of my own cooking.
<br/>
<br/>Feel Slimming World helps promote the eating of 5 a day, and also exercise and they are two key components in losing weight in a healthy manner. I want/need to lose 100lbs and have lost 37lbs (just over 2 and a half stones), and very proud of how far I have come. This is a great plan (food optimising, extra easy)
<br/>
<br/>Come on guys and gals, stop harming yourself and embrace something that is easy, and how I wished I had done this years ago.

Written on: 03/07/2010

I've tried so many crash diets over the years losing masses of weight then putting it all back on. I yo-yo on and off slimming world but I've never put anything back on.

The plan is easy to follow and allows me to eat my two faves, pasta and potatoes. I think it's brilliant value for money, under a fiver a week when before I'd have been spending over twenty on takeaways weekly.

Group support is invalueable, we have tasting sessions and share recipes and tips as well as reviewing new… Read Full Review

I have now been attending Slimming World meetings for 14 months and have lost 4 stone, gradually and painlessly. I have never felt hungry, and the support of the group and the class leader have been invaluable, particularly at those times when the scales have not been moving downwards as quickly as I would like. It's not a diet and it works!… Read Full Review

Joined on line and found it a bit hard to get the jist, but once i worked it out my first week i lost 2.6 kls and ate very well. Its all about making small changes in the way you choose and prepare meals and the best bit is i can organise my meals to suit my day. As i have also been a yoyo dieter my focus is not on losing weight, as in my diet lifetime i have already lost 6 times by body weight, butin planning how to keep it off once i get there.
