Amazing support

We all know that eating healthily is the best way to lose weight and that building in some extra activity helps too – and our generous Food Optimising plan and lifestyle activity programme have been created to make it easier than you ever thought possible. At Slimming World, however, we know that to lose weight – and keep that weight off for life – you need something extra.

To change the habits that have formed over years — sometimes decades — slimmers need in-depth support and encouragement, and that's so much more than praise on a good week and commiseration for a bad week.

Slimming World truly is the club that cares. We promise every member that they'll be treated with genuine warmth and respect, and they'll have access to a support system like no other, offering a positive approach and real empathy and understanding throughout their weight loss journey.

Group support

At the heart of our friendly groups is a powerfully motivating session we call IMAGE Therapy. IMAGE stands for Individual Motivation And Group Experience. It's the part of the group where everyone benefits from the experiences of their fellow members – to help change habits, share healthy swaps, make decisions about the week ahead, to uncover any old habits that might be slowing your weight loss and develop strategies to overcome them.

Your Consultant also has a toolkit of motivational tools for you to use when you need them – for a weight loss boost, to get back on track or to uncover what could be sabotaging your success. It's so much more than anything you've experienced before, and it really is the key to your long-term success.

Our group sessions each week are a real inspiration and motivation – staying to group gives me a real boost for the following week.

In 8 weeks I've lost 2 stones and been Slimmer of the Week twice! My Consultant is wonderful and the support the members give is so important to me. Food Optimising is the best, easiest healthy eating plan there is. IMAGE Therapy and your fellow group members are your lifeline.

Online support

We understand that for our online members – people who can't get to a group – this kind of in-depth support is just as vital in helping you achieve your weight loss dreams.

Our online support will help you raise your awareness of where things could go wrong and develop strategies for life-long success.
