I'm an online member of slimming world and I started with a BMI of 29.2 which means I needed to lose about 2st to get to a healthier BMI of 25. I'm middle aged and things have spread a bit with my sedentary job and lots of cakes and biscuits in the office. This eating plan is working very well, in spite of my scepticism - I find it hard to believe that I can lose weight even though I'm having ample carbs. Unlimited potatoes, rice, pasta. Porridge for breakfast. Loads of mullerlight yogurts… Read Full Review

Slimming World diet is certainly a way of eating which you could do for life. It is flexible enough for family life and it does teach you about healthy eating. There is a long list of foods which you can eat and you can certainly make some very tasty meals from this extensive list. You do have to cook from scratch, which I believe isn't a bad thing. Unfortunately it doesn't teach you about portion control - that bit you will have to do yourself. If, like me, you have a huge appetite, this… Read Full Review

The plan itself is very easy to follow but I've left my group as the woman running it is quote rude Nd just seems to want to help the same click of people all the time. Will try to do it on my own… Read Full Review

Following the plan, and that means completely sticking to it works, full stop. Its the only diet I've stuck to and lost weight. However, the problem is sticking to it. The first few weeks you I lost on average a pound a week, I have about a stone to lose. I felt amazing, but then you get complacent and it gets boring and then you lose interest. The group is also a waste of time, in my opinion its just a social club for a load of retired women. I just go get weighed and then I'm off but if you… Read Full Review

I finally got fed up with my weight before Christmas and decided to visit my GP to ask if she would recommend mw for some Slimminh World vouchers for 12 weeks of free slimming. I started goingas soon as I received them despite it being just before xmas. No time like the present! I lost 1/2 stone by Christmas and got my award which i was quite chuffed about. Then the rot started to set in which was not my fayult. Apparently the next 2 weeks I put on despite following the plan to theletter. The… Read Full Review

I joined slimming world and like the diet very easy (extra easy). the Consultant i find to be lazy and not inspiring if there are no new joiners. she will ignore you and sit with arms folded doing nothing. today when i weighed in she sat whilst one girl took the money and then ran over to serve us on the snacks! whilst another girl weighed us in. She completely ignored us! and did not atempt to help. if she has this spare time could she not enage with the customers? if you stay behind the… Read Full Review

Slimming World does work if you stick at it. I've lost about 1 1/2 stone over the past 9 months or so and therefore I guess I have to recommend it. I think it sometimes frustrates my BF that I'm always pulling the book out to check certain foods and that I have to effectively decide what I'm going to eat at the start of the day (or at least not eat certain food types - which does cut down spontaneity), but he loves the results and so do I ;) … Read Full Review

I've been a SW devotee for about 3 years now, and have been at my target weight for s and a half years. I have read some of the reviews and agree with some and sympathise with others. If you get a good consultant, it is great. The support from both the consultant and the group can be really motivating, especially if you are having a bad time with the weight loss. If you have a bad consultant, you can be given bad information, be unmotivated and totally lose interest. I know - our group have… Read Full Review

I've tried many weight loss diets and none of it works for me until I was introduced to slimming world by a friend. I've come to see that different diets work for different people. Slimming World works for me!!! I use to attend weekly group in our area but then the group stopped running a few months later for some reason. Even though we don't have any SW group in our area I was fortunate to have gotten all the food optimizing information I needed when i was in group. Now I just keep myself… Read Full Review

Hi there, I have just been reading all the reviews on this and just wondered if anyone could help me get motivated. Like most women i've done 101 diets and took slimming pills but NO MORE. I need to lose it sensibly and hopefully keep it off. I am only small but just over 11stone (not too big) but need to lose 2 and i'll be really pleased.
I joined sw last year, you know what its like when you go the first week and stay the same and then second I stayed the same. Granted I didn't exercise… Read Full Review

Joined SW 4 weeks ago and have so far lost 18lbs, been slimmer of the week once and gained two shiny star stickers to reward my hard work!
If I'm honest you need a PhD to understand the diet - have read and re-read the book and still confused about coloured days and A's and B's. However must be doing something right as it's working!
Would recommend this to anyone and also really encourage you to stay on for the class as its so positive and motivating… Read Full Review

Been with SLIMMING WORLD for just over 6 months now and in that time have lost a much needed two stone. Weight loss has been progressive, sometimes speedy, sometimes far too slow for my liking, but generally it is going in the right direction, which is Down. Yeye. Some of my colleagues at the same club have lost far more than I have, but suffering from Graves Disease and lack of Vitamin D - did you know it increases weight gain? Betcha didn't, plus aching joints, however another story - I am… Read Full Review

I lost 2 stone 2 years ago and some of it has gradually crept back on but only because I stopped going to the my group and sticking to the plan. I'm now having to lose 101bs, but cheerily, because I know it will work and that I will thoroughly enjoy the food. Also, I think that eating so much fruit and veg gives you lots of energy, so makes the whole process easier and makes you feel more in control. I never thought I would do a diet plan, but I think it's great. Very very supportive too. No… Read Full Review

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.

Diet plans are good, not because they tell you how to eat healthy, but because they play to our behavioural games.
I like Slimming World because it appeals to my tendency (and need) to ignore portion control. You only need to measure certain kinds of foods (dairy, breads) and 'count' fatty foods (syns). Other foods such as fruits, veg, pasta, lean meats - you can have all you want. I find the diet easier than others because of that. I don't feel deprived. I like the meetings for… Read Full Review

I lost around 3stone on the Atkins diet several years ago, so wanted to try a healthier diet. The weight loss with Slimming World isn't so dramatic, but it does work if you stick to it. I find I can only lose weight on the Red days, (I PILE it on on the Green days), so obviously the protein rich diet suits me.
I have recently started it again, I read reviews about the Extra Easy, and wasn't impressed, so sticking to the tried and trusted old way.
I didn't really get on with the classes… Read Full Review

I joined in Sept 09 (so I am fairly new to this). Its just an amazing diet. I lost 5lbs first week, 1.5 second week and 4.5 third week. This week (star week) I maintained. Its easy. Its plenty of food. There's lots of support.You NEVER go hungry and its VERY VERY healthy.I am convinced it will change my life permanently… Read Full Review
