Your route to weight loss

What do you know about weight loss? Or should that be what don’t you know about weight loss? In today’s society we’re absolutely bombarded with weight loss advice at every turn!  

From the quick-fix bikini diet to drastic gastric surgery, weight loss solutions are offered in every magazine, newspaper or TV show these days.

So with all the conflicting advice on how to lose weight, where do we go for help in our weight loss mission?

Weight loss weapon

Slimming World offers a realistic weight loss solution for life, without the hunger and deprivation associated with other weight loss plans.

It’s a sensible eating plan that aids weight loss because the healthy foods you can tuck into are naturally low in calories and fill you up. No more ‘going without’ just because you’re watching your weight. Loss of your social life/friends/sanity is a thing of the past!

The wonder of weight loss

Losing weight can improve our wellbeing in many ways as well as helping to protect against health problems including heart disease, diabetes, strokes and asthma. 

As well as life-changing health benefits, one of the fantastic results of weight loss is the transformation in our appearance. Whether it’s 1st or 10st lost, the physical effects are always noticeable, with healthier skin and a glowing complexion, as well as a slimmer figure and a brand new wardrobe! 

I recently celebrated my birthday and went clubbing with all my friends. When I used to go out with friends I'd wear baggy clothes. Now, thanks to my weight loss I looked amazing and wasn’t scared to show off my body.

Weight loss while you wait

No sensible eating plan will result in instant weight loss. A steady weight loss of 1-2lbs per week is recommended in government health guidelines, which is a realistic, achievable goal for the majority of people. It's not unusual to see larger losses in the first few weeks of slimming, mainly due to the loss of body water and especially if you have a lot of weight to lose. For the majority of people, however, weight loss usually settles to an average of 1-2lbs a week over time.

Hundreds of thousands of Slimming World members have found success with Food Optimising, and weight losses range from 7lbs to 10 stones or more!

Weight loss that works

Finally, a weight loss solution that actually works! It’s not about calorie-counting, portion-reducing or misery-inducing here at Slimming World…

I knew I had to lose weight but I’d tried every diet going – none of them fitted into family life. Then I found Slimming World. One week later I’d lost 10lbs and I’ve never looked back. I just wish I’d joined years ago.
