"I came to Rachel and Mike Ricketts at the Weight Loss Centre after many years of my weight and eating habits spiralling out of control. Throughout my 20s I had turned to food and used it as an emotional comfort. It became my best friend. Whether I felt it was a time to celebrate or a time to commiserate, food was the first thing I turned to, no matter what time of the day, no matter how inconvenient it was to get my hands on and no matter how much I wanted to lose weight and be healthy, eating whatever type of food I could find was more important for the few minutes I ate it! As a very unhappy size 22, I had simply become addicted to food at the age of 29. I visited my GP on many occasions and also completed a course of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) which helped for the duration of the course but soon enough, left to my own devices, I was binge eating and becoming more and more depressed. I didn't want to work, which is very hard when you run your own business! I didn't want to socialize, I couldn't do my own housework and all I wanted to do was sleep and stay in bed all day, every day.
I feel so much better mentally and physically The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme is a clear concise programme in 4 stages, well set out and easy to follow. The ongoing support from the team is invaluable. I especially want to say 'Thank You' to Daley for his encouragement and help with my weekly support. In 5 months I have lost 26 lbs. I feel so much better both mentally and physically, I sleep well, have more energy, my mobility has improved so much I walk every day and cannot remember the last time I used my walking sticks. I cannot recommend this programme enough, Team you are amazing, thank you!'
"What a revelation Rachel's programme has been! I started on the 28th of April and on the 19th of August. I'm 9kg (20 pounds) lighter! Since having had my second child, the weight has piled on and nothing I tried to lose weight worked... until I decided to join the Metabolic Weight loss team! I cannot lie, the first few weeks were hard, I have hit some plateaus but Rachel and Daley's support was fantastic! They never judge, they never tell you off but they always offer some positive and very helpful suggestions on how to change things slightly to make every struggle disappear. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the programme to anyone who wants to lose weight for good!"
"6 months ago I began my journey into the new life that is now unbelievable for me!! I have lost 5 stones so far and I am working on losing 5 more!! With the help and support from Rachel, I am doing this - I have learnt a new way of living and I feel great! It is completely life-changing. I dread to think if I hadn't started The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme what would have happened to me! Thank you, Rachel."
This has been the weight management programme I had been waiting for for many years! During the programme I have found my diverticular problems to be much reduced, acid reflux has virtually disappeared, and the most wonderful result I have had is that, to date, I have lost over 3 stones in weight ! I now have enhanced senses of taste and smell . I definitely sleep much better too. The plan guided me through the phases of the Metabolic Weight loss programme, which after a few days came naturally to me. Obviously the support I have received from Daley and Rachel has kept me focused, and on the right track if any issues or problems had appeared. This has all been invaluable for me, and I can say that I have thoroughly enjoyed being a "loser" ! I shall continue on the programme to lose more weight, and hopefully, with the help of the Plan, maintain that very important weight-loss. Thank you so much to the team, without whom , I would still have been Yoyo dieting, frustrated, and depressed about my size and weight.
"I have always been careful with what I ate, and monitored my weight. However, when I took early retirement to look after my grandsons I took my eye off the ball. I was fed up with being careful, and so decided I would just eat what I wanted. Big mistake. With the weight beginning to pile on we went into lockdown, and I started to get bigger and bigger, and to feel very uncomfortable. I decided to take back control, and found the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme online. After speaking to Mike on the phone, I went ahead. It was one of the best decisions I have made. The programme is easy to follow, and I liked the fact that I could tailor it to my preferences for meals. The weight has fallen off, I have lost two and a half stones in 5 months to reach my target weight. My cholesterol which was high has come down to well within the correct limit, and I have been able to come off the acid reflux medication I have been taking for around 10 years. My IBS has also eased considerably. I have always thought previously that bread and pasta etc didn’t agree with me, and this diet has proved that to be correct. The weekly support with Daley have been a great help in keeping me on the straight and narrow. I would recommend this programme to anyone who finds dieting difficult, I have never been on a diet where I have had such a successful weight loss in such a short time."
This personalised weight loss program has changed my life! I have never stuck to a ‘diet’ and this is so personal to me that I don’t see it as a diet, it’s a way of life, that is perfect for me! The team go above and beyond and their communication and help is nothing short of phenomenal. I used to dread getting dressed and would look for clothes that hid my body. This was not good to be so suppressed by fat as I am an actress. I can now share my art with the world and I love being on Film. I am so creative with my clothes and I look stunning. I’ve lost 4 stone in 4 months and I am super confident. I can now meet my husband as I am what he will need and want! A stunning wife! I’m so happy and so stable! I am no longer suppressed by fat and I am flourishing in life as the beautiful Actress I always dreamed to be!
"Just wanted to share this photo with you. As you know I completed the plan a few years ago. I have stuck to the main principles and have lost a total of 3 stone. The main change was completely giving up alcohol 3 years ago. I would think nothing of drinking a whole bottle of wine followed by gin and tonic (s). The difference in the pictures has shocked me and I am so glad I made that change because I feel so much happier and healthier."
"Since I started the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme I have lost 26lbs . I am healthier, happy and have more energy. I no longer have cravings. I can clearly see a difference, clothes are loser and my general health and well-being has improved immensely. The support has been key and it's just like having therapy but better. I have never lost weight like this before, you have made my year!"
"I have lost 22lbs with The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I thoroughly enjoyed the programme and I felt a sense of achievement. The weekly support from the programme was positive and always encouraging, it just helps to know that somebody cares. It's not difficult to do and you are not hungry, so you can do it easily."
"During lockdown I phoned Rachel and she changed my life for the better. Firstly to speak to a very caring lady who talked me through the Metabolic Weight Programme, Rachel filled me with confidence. Then Daley, my consultant, phoned every week and gave me so much motivation helping me with my weight loss. Over the moon to say I have lost 24lbs so far. Coming out of lockdown size 12 and throwing size 16s out is a dream come true, pure happiness !! I am so delighted to have met Rachel, Daley and The Team."
"Yes, I've tried everything to lose weight - dieting clubs, hypnosis, fasting, any carbs, low carb, low fat and high fat diets over a lifetime of weight yo yoing so I am more than qualified to say the only thing that has really worked for me is Rachel's Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I had plenty of non-judgemental, empathetic, knowledgeable support with Rachel. She has celebrated every ounce lost and motivated me when I've put on weight. I know that every week I have someone with whom I can share my triumphs and disasters - without boring my family and friends!"
"Since I began my weight loss journey, I have lost a total of 42 pounds. Its been very exciting seeing the weight drop off each week. Daley was always very encouraging and supportive, ready with creative suggestions for food alternatives. I feel healthy, energetic and motivated to keep the weight off. I have gained so much knowledge about food and how it affects me. I would highly recommend this plan and I am so glad I took the step to get involved. I have not only lost my weight but I have been given the confidence to stay healthy for the rest of my life."
"Rachel Ricketts Weight loss program is an absolute must for anyone seriously looking to change their shape, reduce weight and develop Some healthy eating habits. Not only have I lost 24lbs but I feel and look so much better. I’ve had many comments about looking a lot younger which is a real bonus too!"
"Despite my age, weight loss has been possible and achievable. I have been amazed at how quickly I have lost weight. I’ve been on every diet under the sun and failed every time but Rachel Ricketts has definitely taught me to see food differently. The plan has helped me to stop cravings and identified foods which are addictive and poisonous for my body which contributed to sabotaging all previous attempts. I’ve recently started taking HRT and so many people have told me that menopausal women can’t lose weight. With Daley’s regular support and coaching, it is not only possible but goals become achievable. Thank you to everyone at Rachel Ricketts, I feel and if I may say so, look amazing!"
"Having spent the first 6 months of lockdown thoroughly enjoying cooking and baking, by October I said to myself that enough is enough! I signed up to Rachel Ricketts Weight Loss Centre towards the end of October and started my transformation. During my life, I have been on many diets and would always lose quickly but soon put it on again. I realised that I needed the kind of support which Daley and Rachel gave me on a weekly basis and very soon I got into the zone. I was able to enjoy the festive season and the only days I gave myself off were Christmas Day, New Years day and my birthday in F...
"I will never forget March 20th when it was announced that we would go into lockdown. I became even more obsessed with food and I found myself reaching for the wine opener every evening…which then led to me eating lots of crisps and snacks. I knew I was putting on weight, but I was in denial.
My daughter took a photo of me in April which meant I could no longer ignore the tightening clothes and puffing whenever I climbed the stairs. I realised I needed to do something before my weight started causing me health issues. I tried to lose weight on my own but found it difficult to stay motivated. I ...
" A life changing experience, not only to my health but my personal well-being. I have made healthy lifestyle changes for the better and as a result I am comfortable in my own skin, I have energy and I am in fantastic shape."
"Since I started the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme I have lost 43 lbs. I feel good, look good and I am healthier than ever before. I am happy and full of energy. My eating habits have improved dramatically. Cutting out alcohol was the best thing I could have done for myself. I finally gained control of my life and I am in a position where I can maintain my weight forever. Thank you to Daley and the Team at The Weight Loss Centre."
"I have struggled with my weight since menopause, gaining over a stone in weight. The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme is a game changer. It is easy to follow and with some will power and focus my weight loss wishes are starting to come true. My sugar cravings have gone and my skin is clearer. I feel positive and motivated. Daley has been so supportive. Thank you Daley."
"Before I found the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme I was at an all-time low with my weight. I was eating to make myself happy! Obviously this wasn’t the solution. My weight was increasing and it became a vicious circle. I also started to have weight-related health problems, my back and knees ached most of the time. I was somewhat ashamed when I had my first appointment because I weighed more than I thought and when I saw my weight it was a wake-up call! Rachel made me feel so at ease I began to feel less ashamed and self-conscious of myself. I couldn’t believe how quickly I started to see the results. I first noticed that my back and knee had stopped hurting so much and I wasn’t so breathless. I don’t think I could have achieved it without the support of Rachel and Mike. They are there for you 24/7 with any little worry, which helps keep you on track and focus.
"When I signed up I said I would be amazed if I managed to lose ONE stone. I’ve been a yo yo dieter for over twenty years. I’ve tried all the diets and each one was harder to succeed. I have blamed the HRT I’ve been on for 27 years following a hysterectomy. I’ve proved myself wrong I’m so happy to say. With the help of the weekly phone calls from Rachel and then Sue I have lost 24 lbs and 14 inches so far. I am going to continue as I find this way of life very easy to stick to. I don’t have cravings for chocolate, cake or alcohol. I feel and look so much better. I sleep better too. I’m loving ...
"I was desperate to find something that worked. I had struggled with my weight for so long. While I was on the programme I wasn't hungry and didn't have any cravings. I am absolutely delighted with my 2 stone weight loss."
"I started the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme on the 30 May and by the 30 August I had lost 3 stone 11lb. Not bad for a man of 72 years wanting to get into shape! I am ecstatic about this result. I have found it very easy to follow the programme. My doctor can't believe my weight loss. I feel a lot better in myself mentally and physically. My blood pressure is down and I am sleeping better. I am more active than I have been for a long time. It has been a life-changing experience for me."
“I went from a size 18-20 to a size 10-12 in 3 and a half months. I had hopelessly been trying to lose weight for the last fifteen years. I’m absolutely thrilled - I need a whole new wardrobe!”
“At my initial consultation, it was a case of this is a last attempt at losing weight naturally before resorting to gastric surgery. I thought maybe a couple of stone would be lost but I lost 6 stone in 6 months! The last time I was this weight was when I was in my teens! The programme was extremely easy to do – no gimmicks and very good value for money. During the programme you learn to understand what causes your weight gain, and how best to control your cravings. As the weight kept coming off I thought this is great, and it kept me motivated to continue with the programme. I feel absolutely...
“This is the only thing that has ever worked for me. It has given me a completely new life! My health, energy levels and well-being have greatly improved!”
"I never feel hungry and I really liked what I ate on the programme. Works wonders if you follow it. I lost 10kg which I am very happy with. With the support of Rachel, I was able to lose the weight - which I had never been able to do by myself. It's Easy to follow –no pain! It’s a very good way of living, not really a diet, just how we should be eating!"
"Apart from my weight loss I noticed, an incredible change in mood. I am sleeping much better. My husband wanted to pass on the following to you ‘Thank you kindly – it has cost us a small fortune in buying new clothes!'"
"I never thought I could have achieved what I did – losing 23lb in the first four weeks! My average weight loss on the programme averaged out to 4lb a week, which was very motivating. I was never hungry and the programme was simple to follow. Having lost the weight I now have the tools to keep it off. I am very pleased with the programme and so is my girlfriend – she now has a new man! I am 10/10 satisfied with the programme – good value for money. I certainly feel a lot better and the sun is now shining every day!"
"I am a very happy, slimmer person. This is a brilliant Weight Loss Programme. I have lost 30lbs in two months, eating three times a day which I have not done in years, aside from losing weight and being able to wear clothes I have not worn for years, and finding some are now TOO BIG! For me it is more to do with my health being improved in so many ways. WHY did I not do this sooner? The support from my Consultant Sue is great, there is always help at the end of the phone. Tried all the other diets? Try this one - IT WORKS."
"I decided to go and see Rachel and follow the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme as I was at an all time low with my weight. I have been overweight since childhood; throughout my teens and adult life my weight has been a constant source of worry for me and at times has held me back from doing so many things. I have tried so many different diets, all of them would work at first but then after a few months my weight loss would grind to a halt leaving me very disheartened. The final straw came when I was a bridesmaid recently and my dress had to be let out instead of being taken in. I was very embarrassed and felt that my weight was spiralling out of control. Despite trying to lose weight I seemed to be putting it on. It was at that point that I made a decision that I seriously needed to take control and change my life.
"I have to say I was truly sceptical when I registered with my wife for the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I started the programme in May weighing in at 18.01 and now in October I am 14 stone 9lb! My diabetes is now under control and my medication has been reduced. My only complaint is that I am spending a fortune on new clothes! If anyone is sceptical about the results that this programme can achieve, just get in contact with me as I can recommend with ease this programme. I am absolutely delighted with the results."
"I am now a changed person. Believe me you can achieve incredible weight loss easily with this supportive programme; I received telephone calls each week, at an arranged time, from my lovely consultant. The commitment is there from day one along with the motivation to succeed. My husband joined me in the weight loss journey and as we both have a scientific background can understand the research that Rachel has put into the Programme and can understand why this approach works. I have struggled with my weight throughout my adult life all due to various hormonal changes we women endure! This is t...
"A real breakthrough! This is the best diet I have ever been on and easy to follow - it has been the only diet that has worked for me. It has been a real breakthrough - I lost 4 stone 6lb. I am thrilled with my new energy levels and the fact that I have now got a whole new wardrobe! I am very happy with the support I received from Rachel and her team."
The benefits have been great. My mental health is so much better, so much happier with myself. It's nice to try new clothes and put on a pair of trousers that are so much smaller. Support has been fantastic for me because you know that you have this help there, you have that guidance in the back of your mind. This programme was my last-ditch attempt to ever try and get the weight off. So I can only say it worked for me."
"I feel like a new person having lost 21bs following the easiest weight loss programme. I love the new me. I was never hungry and now enjoy experimenting with my meals since reaching my target weight. Thanks to Sue and Rachel for their support and tough love throughout. Don't wait, get signed up now for a new you, just do it - I can honestly say it is one of the best choices I have ever ever made."
"I am thrilled with my weight loss on this 'way of life' . I have gone under my target and am feeling much better in myself as it has taken pressure off my joints which is a health issue for me. The wonderful recipes Daley sent were a godsend and made for less boring meal times, my husband also enjoyed a lot of them too. I have not got a before and after full photos but just a couple of facial photos before and today which show me that at my age I do not need any more wrinkles, so am happy at the weight I am. Thank you for all your help and particularly Daley for good advise and useful tips."
"Wow, now I weigh 10 stone, unbelievable, after 4 months. I have lost 3 stone 8lb despite a 3-week holiday in California. In desperation, I phoned Rachel having been on a diet for 9 months and only lost a stone. I started the week before Easter as I decided it was now or never. I had a choice - either being fat for the rest of my life or to do something about it - and Rachel was the answer. I thought it was going to be impossible to lose a stone in the first month but it only took 3 weeks. The diet was easy to follow and, when eating at friends' homes, I took my food with me. We often take a 3-hour trip to visit relations and always stop for a coffee, but I always had a hot chocolate. First week of diet I said no to the hot chocolate, I want to be slim, and that saying has stayed with me. ‘I can have a piece of chocolate cake but I would rather be slim.’"
