Slimming World

The UK's most successful weight loss program, now available in the U.S. and Canada.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Slimming World is a weight loss program that promotes itself as a plan without hunger. It is the most advanced weight loss organization in the UK and was founded by Margaret Miles-Bramwell in 1969, who is still the leading force behind the company today.

During the past 43 years millions of people have lost more than 60 million pounds, proving it's a weight loss program that works.

The Slimming World program works by offering group support through meetings, healthy eating options, tips for getting active and access to the Slimming World magazine.

The magazine, which was introduced in 1998, is now the best-ever selling diet magazine in the UK and is also ranked number nine in the top 10 most actively purchased magazine titles in the UK.

Slimming World offers more than 9,500 groups meeting on a weekly basis in the UK and Ireland, which are faciliated by 3,500 trained Slimming World consultants. An online version of the program is also now available in the U.S. and Canada.

In 2003 Slimming World also launched its "Our Body Magic" program. This arm of Slimming World was designed to help members become more active in their journey to lose weight. Developed by leading health and academic experts, Body Magic is built upon well-established psychological and scientific principles of behavior change to help empower and encourage individuals to include more exercise in their daily lives so it will become an intrinsic part of their lifestyle.

DIET and NUTRITION

The Slimming World program focuses heavily on what types of food to eat so that you are full and don’t feel deprived while losing weight. You can choose from a vegetarian program, or one that incorporates meat.

EXERCISE

Exercise is recommended for faster weight loss. However, the Slimming World program claims that you don’t have to exercise because of the efficiency of their Food Optimising component. Slimming World does encourage moderate exercise if you want to exercise.

CONCLUSION

Slimming World found great success in the UK where it originated and is now also available in the U.S., Ireland and Canada. The program is a great option for people wanting to lose weight with the help of health and fitness experts while also being surrounded by community. All in all it seems safe, effective and a smart pick among diet programs.

Slimming World was a life saver for me! Not only did I lose 77.5 lbs over 2 years ago, I now have the knowledge and habits to last a lifetime.

I am so excited to hear that the programme is now available here in the DFW metroplex. I only wish I had discovered this a week ago before I forked out $485 for a slim4life diet that is unworkable for me. I am British and attended SW in the UK back in 2004 (have a friend who swears by it) and it was the best programme I have ever been on. I am looking forward to joining a group in the next week or so.

This is the best plan I have ever tried. It works. I am never hungry. I eat more fruits and vegetables than ever before. I feel great and have much more energy. My cravings are pretty much gone. I have finally found a plan I can live with long term and I am enjoying the ride. I have been doing this as part of the Lewisville, Texas group since March, 2010 and have lost 38 1/2 lbs. LOVE IT!

I would just like to point out that slimming world does encourage exercise with their F.I.T. log and it is also available in the US!
It is a fantastic eating programme and is actually something that you can stick to for the long term as you can eat anything you want!
