Written on: 16/05/2008

I have lost 5 stone with slimming world, met my gorgeous hubby to be and put a bit back on.(about 20 pounds) STUPIDLY went over to Lighter Life, where, ok, I lost 16 pounds in 3 weeks, but was made to feel guilty about eating a lettuce leaf and an apple, had palpations, hair loss, dizziness and headaches. Plus lacking in so much energy could barely stand let alone go to the gym.Came Back to Slimmimg world eating correctly and have maintained what I lost with LL and now right back on track- this… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/05/2008 by lisacreaghan (2 reviews written)

I joined slimming world 12 weeks ago at 12st 4lb. I am 5'5 and was size 16. I have lost weight every single week and am 1/2 lb away from 2 stone weight loss!! I work really long hours so initially I felt I would struggle with the cooking as you do really need to cook everything from scratch to benefit. The amazing thing is, I have suddenly started to really enjoy cooking and have concocted some amazing free recipes. I used to go to weight watchers years ago and it didnt work because I became so… Read Full Review

“If other diets have not worked for you, SW is...”

Written on: 27/04/2008

If other diets have not worked for you, SW is definitely worth a try. The diet is filling and full of variety. You have to be prepared to cook, and not to rely on too many ready-made foodstuffs. If you organise your shopping, you shouldn't go hungry and you should lose weight at a steady pace. I agree with another reviewer's comments about the poor quality of consultant it is possible to have if you are unlucky. I have had two good ones, but two appalling ones - I have felt like getting up and… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2008 by Tump (4 reviews written)

This diet is great. As with all diets you do need comitment. I started in July 2006 and by November 2006 I had lost 2 stone. If you are a fussy eater any diet wil be difficult to stick to. If you're not fussy then it really can work for you. I lost 6 pounds in my first week, kept it off and never looked back. My mother in law started a month after me and she has just received her 3 and a half stone award. If you like food then this is the one for you. Basically you put less calories in… Read Full Review

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

Written on: 19/06/2008

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.

Overall, I'm not very pleased with it, but my lack of weight loss is probably due to my lack of committment because I don't like the food vegetarians are allowed to eat. Baked beans -- UGGH!!… Read Full Review

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!

Written on: 20/03/2008

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.
