“Needs updating ”

Written on: 14/05/2014 by vxNelson12 (1 review written)

So I'm at the end of week 1 of Closer Diets which is run by Tesco, and under the latter name, this is the second time I've done this diet. There is a choice of meal plans and you can swap between them so that's flexible. I will come back in a few weeks and comment on its overall success but first time round I lost a stone so should be good. People talk in their reviews about the fees. I paid £18 for 8 weeks and £8 extra for a fitness plan. It does say - but you need to read the small print -… Read Full Review

“Don't Bother”

Written on: 16/10/2013 by R1286 (1 review written)

I have been using my fitness pal since February time and have lost 2 stone, I wanted some extra support and ideas to lose more weight to reach my target - so signed up with Closer diets. The recipes aren't great, they say everything is 360 cals based on my weight and what i need to lose but this is a joke as there not if you submit the recipes to my fitness pal, i actually put on weight, dont think the website is easy to use either - really not worth paying for when my fitness pal is free!… Read Full Review

“Plenty of choice”

Written on: 09/04/2013

I really like that there is so much to chose from on the Closer diets website. I like the way you can weigh in and record your weight from the privacy of your own home and you also receive a personal reply from the mentors. The support is wonderful and so motivational. There are plenty of meals and recipes to chose from and if you don't like cooking there is even the option to chose a convenience plan where there is very little preparation involved. … Read Full Review

Agreed. I followed this diet years ago and lost loads of weight. For various reasons it's gone back on again, but now I've signed up again I KNOW it will come off again. The menus are a life saver. I'm following the closer diets plan, (there are a few to choose from) and at 1400 calories, you get LOADS to eat. Good value for money as well, 6 weeks for 12.90!!

Written on: 05/03/2012

After hearing loads of great reviews i signed up for the 3 months at £29.90 - i thought that would be a 1 off payment but no sooner then i clicked submit they took £19.90 from my account, then about 10 minutes later £1 - tried contacting them as it did not state there would be an initial payment of £19.90 on top of the £29.90 only joined as it was a lot cheaper then other dieting sites but after reading other reviews am trying to cancel before anymore money is taken... definately would not… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/08/2010

The diet plan itself was not too bad but I decided to not renew after my 10 week subscription had expired. I now discover that Closer Diets have continued to take money without permission from my credit card. When challenged they told me that at the bottom of the email (in very inconspicuous print)they sent me to tell me my subscription was about to expire, there is a paragraph saying that unless you physically cancel your subscription they will continue to take money from you.

They will not… Read Full Review

"Before my purchase I would like to have known that Closer Diets would contine to take money from me without my permission".

They did, you just didn't read the small print.

Written on: 25/05/2010

BEWARE....this seems to be nothing more than a con, you have to subscribe at the coast of £30 and have a meal plan designed for you, you are given a meagre amount of calories and are left feeling hungry, i was on the convienience plan set at only 1200 calories, and in my 1st week i lost nothing !!!... i have now unsubscribed **** PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS NO REFUND POLICY *****..this means it has cost me £30 to be on a diet for a week and lost nothing (except the £30)… Read Full Review

You only gave it a week. How can you judge a diet from one week?! This is a lifestyle overhaul i.e healthy eating combined with exercise for life. It takes time and effort. If you want to shed pounds quickly go on a faddy diet like the cabbage soup one. You'll lose lots of water weight and then pile it all back on when you can't stand it any longer and pig out.

Exactly!!! For heavens sake you didn't exactly give it a chance did you? Weight takes time to go on and it takes time to come off, it won't happen overnight. You are clearly a very impatient person who wants everything to happen NOW. Close diets is GREAT value for money, far better than some of the more well known ones that's for sure.

Written on: 29/12/2009

I am about to join Closer diets for the 3rd time. It has been brilliant for me to hop on or off the diet & I always lose weight. 1.5 stone the 1st time, 1 stone the second & now Im trying for my last stone to get to my goal. The choices for recepies are fab, being allowed to eat burger & chips with a glass of wine a night is a god-send! You do need will-power to follow it, but to get on the scales week after week & see an average of 2lbs a week drop off is a great incentive!
My only complaint… Read Full Review

Here here, completly agree. I'm pretty sure closer diets used to be called cafeslim years ago. When I googled cafelsim it came up with this. I lost LOADS of weight following it before and despite trying all the other main ones with NO success, I've signed up to this again. I'm on 1400 calories a day you can eat LOADS. Can't wait to get started.

Written on: 08/08/2008

Overall I am very impressed with closerdiets.com and would recommend it to my friends and family. The website has supported me in losing weight and has given me the motivation I needed to start the weight loss process. I am really enjoying the recipes and am finding that I am actually eating more but still losing weight. The meal plans are easy to follow and the shopping list is a real help… Read Full Review

Yep agree with all that 100%. I will NEVER go back to the other ones I've tried, (you know the usual suspects). This is just brilliant, and you get so much food you really don't feel as if you are on a calorie controlled diet at all. Also I agree about the shopping lists, brilliant. A real help. None of the other *big names* do this. Give me closer diets any day. :)

Written on: 05/08/2008

I felt that Closer Diets was a waste of my time. I was much better off using a 2 week diet and sensible eating plan that you can pick up in any weekly magazine for about 80p not 13.95 per month.

Unless I had special dietary requirements, I wouldn't bother… Read Full Review
