your questions answered...

I’ve tried loads of diets and nothing works – why should Slimming World?

I’ve tried dieting before... I was always so hungry!

I got fed up counting calories and weighing everything – life’s too short!

Tasteless diet food, tiny portions and massive expense – it’s not for me!

I want to eat with my family, not have separate meals.

I can’t get to a group. Can you help me lose weight?

I got bored and de-motivated with dieting

I didn’t want to reach the target they set for me!

I don’t want everyone to know my weight or be made to feel guilty for not losing!
