Rachael is 48 years old, 5ft 7in and works a sedentary job as a Secretary. She contacted the clinic because she was very unhappy with her weight, at 14.3 stone. In the past Rachel had tried Weight Watchers and a boot camp and had lost 2 stone. But over seven years had put all the weight back on plus an extra stone.
“Before I started the Slenderlink programme, I was worried that I would have to start exercising and starve myself to lose the weight. It was the opposite, on my new healthy eating plan, I was able to eat more food than I was eating before I started on the programme, but this time it was the right food for me. My Nutrition and Lifestyle coach was really understanding and didn’t put me under any pressure. She encouraged me to eat more fresh foods, fruit and wholegrains such as rice and beans. I created my own go-to meals which were simple to prepare and delicious. I didn’t feel restricted at all. I lost 1-2 pounds a week for the next 6 months. My weight has now settled around 11 stone, which I am happy with. I am feeling much slimmer and healthier now and my clothes fit better. I have started walking in the evenings again because I have more energy. I would recommend the Slenderlink programme to anyone who wants to stop dieting and learn a better way to lose weight easily and naturally.”
David is 35 years old, 5ft 11in and works as a courier van driver. David contacted the clinic because he was worried about his health, he was 16 stone, 9 pounds. He was starting to have trouble with pain in his knees and back. His job involved jumping in and out of the back of the van when making deliveries. He was too tired at night to exercise and was eating pizzas and takeaways while watching TV most nights.
“I knew that my diet and lifestyle was unhealthy, and was causing me to put on weight, but I didn’t know where to start. I needed someone to help me start with the basics. I don’t know how to cook and I needed to be able to bring convenient meals with me to eat on the road, in the van during the day. I also needed help with my habit of eating late at night. I got help from my coach to prepare simple meals and change my eating habits. My energy levels increased in the second week and I felt much more alive, and my cravings for sugary and high fat foods improved. I have lost over 2 stone and my knees and back have stopped aching. I feel 100% better than I used to. I was surprised that my new healthier diet had such immediate effects even without having to exercise. I would recommend Slenderlink to anyone that needs a friendly, helping hand to learn about healthy eating. It was much easier to get control back over my weight and health than I thought it would be”.
