"I am very pleased that I found your article in the Living Magazine. I had tried lots of other weight loss programmes but with no success. I had been trying to lose weight for over 12 years and was getting fed up of being overweight.
I didn't think that I could have achieved the weight that I lost in such a short time. Every week I was losing & seeing the difference in my clothes. I have more energy & my eating habits have changed. Also my skin has cleared up. The diet has definitely improved the way that I eat. I am finding it easy to maintain the weight, I stick to it during the week then al...
"I am so glad that I came to see you. The programme was very straightforward to follow and I am delighted with the results. It has given me new freedom. I could not stand up in my 'before photo' due to my disability. One of the reasons why I wanted to lose weight was that I didn't want to get any heavier for my carers as I depended on them helping me to stand up. Due to my weight loss I no longer need my carers to lift me! My television would be on from 8am - 10pm. I would watch every programme. Now I don't watch any TV during the day. I have more energy than I have had in the last 10 years.
"To my delight I lost 5 stone in 5 months! The programme was very easy to follow – it didn’t take long for me to realize just what a simple and effective way it was to lose weight. Having such a good weight loss week after week and having loads of energy, it spurred me on as the results were so rewarding. I received tremendous support from Rachel throughout my weight loss and I love it that I can come back any time for help with weight maintenance. Rachel's support is unique – very personal and she is always there when I need her! I can only thoroughly recommend it to anyone who truly wants to...
“I feel cracking! After 21 years of marriage, my husband thinks he is married to a different woman now! All I can say is stick to what Rachel tells you to do and it will work!”
"I never thought I would be able to lose my weight. My health and energy levels have greatly increased."
"This is the BEST diet I have ever been on, probably because it's the only diet that has worked. When I first started I was the heaviest I had ever been and weighed the same as I did when I was 8 months pregnant (25 years ago) and feeling decidedly fat, frumpy and way over 40. Then I met Rachel and she gave me the encouragement and determination to try this. I have since lost over a stone and a half and I feel terrific. I just recently tried on some of my skirts to see if they would now fit and three of them fell straight to the floor .... it was brilliant.
"I had tried everything to lose weight, including fad diets. My energy levels have increased and I have regained my self-esteem. There was friend support 24/7. My husband has bought me a whole new wardrobe! Excellent value for money."
"Losing my weight has changed my life. Following the plan was very rewarding - I was losing weight every week. I know now how to control my weight. My confidence is a lot better now."
"I had tried every diet and although they worked at the start I soon became tired and would crave the foods that I had cut out. More recently I followed diets to the letter but still I remained overweight.
I followed the plan and instantly found that I was losing vast amounts of weight each week.
Since getting to my desired weight it has been interesting to find out which foods increase my weight and those that I can eat without effect. This has enabled me to keep at target and given me the confidence to see a slim future."
"In March 2008 I retired from a career in nursing to be able to spend more time with family and friends. Over the years preceding, my weight had gradually increased and fitness levels decreased, resulting in problems of high blood pressure, gastric irritation, irritable bowel and depression to name but a few. This, and trying to cope with high levels of stress, were the decider for me to act before they got the better of me. I was inspired by a friend who had consulted Rachel, gone through the programme, lost her excess weight and looked fantastic. I knew that this was what I needed to do.
“I am so grateful to have found a way at last to lose weight quickly and effectively and to keep my eating habits and weight under control. Having had four children I never thought I’d be proud of my figure again but in just two months I went from despair at being overweight to being delighted with my new shape and I now feel totally in control of my eating.”
"My doctor did Rachel's programme and she lost 2 stone by following it. I came to see Rachel as I needed to lose weight before I went for an operation. In my first 5 months I lost 6 stone. I have gone from a size 26 to a size 12! My doctor did Rachel's programme and she lost 2 stone by following it. I have always been fat from babyhood all through my life and to now be a normal size is absolutely fantastic. Rachel has been wonderful, supportive, informative and very encouraging throughout."
"I found the programme easy to do. Seeing such good results so quickly was encouraging. I am incredibly happy with the results. My fitness and mobility has much improved. My blood sugar levels are now very good and my blood pressure medication has been reduced. My quality of life has greatly increased. It is affordable and very good value for money. A great investment for improving my health. To top it off, I was able to buy a smaller shower due to having lost so much weight and so many inches! I lost 12 inches of my waist in the 5 months!"
“I would like to thank Rachel for her help and support through my weight loss. You made me achieve an ideal weight that I have never been able to reach before. Your friendliness, professionalism and of course the very effective diet food plan made this journey a pleasant and successful one. Now that I have reached this ideal weight, I feel that I can maintain it permanently as you are always there for me when I call you and you have the right technology to help me stay off those naughty old habits of mine. Thanks a lot.”
"The eating plan is so easy to stick to. I lost 5 stone in 5 and a half months! I feel a lot younger, full of energy and love shopping for clothes! I have tried all the other diets. I am delighted with the results! All I can say, if you are thinking of doing the programme, go for it. You will not regret it!"
"What can I say that hasn't been said already? Rachel has enabled me to become what I have always wanted to be. At ease with myself, in control of my weight, feeling good about myself, liking what I see in the mirror. She has made me realize that “anything” is possible – if you set your mind to it – you set your own limitations – now the possibilities are endless. Thank you so much Rachel, I am indebted to you."
"I have lost so much weight that I am now the size I was 15-20 years ago! I have never felt hungry on this diet and it’s so encouraging to see the weight drop off week after week. It has been a real revelation."
"Takeaways, wine, processed and convenience foods all took a toll on my wallet, energy, health and well-being. I now have outstanding blood test results: my cholesterol and blood sugars are now all in normal range. In addition my blood pressure, (from being high), is also normal. I used to take prescribed medication for heartburn and sleep problems, but not any more. I have better quality of sleep and have far more energy. All this has come about in just 6 weeks! Entering into this weight loss programme was probably the best decision I have ever made! With great support from Rachel, this has been a life-changing experience. I could not have possibly envisaged that I could have achieved all what I have in 6 weeks.
"Nick and I decided that the time had come to make a serious attempt at losing weight. Both of us were considerably overweight and were really feeling the effects of middle age spread. We had tried various diets over the years, none that were undertaken with any lasting success. Because of this we were rather sceptical about undertaking any diet, let alone one that claimed such dramatic and quick results as the one Rachel was offering in her advertisements. However, we were prepared to give it a go and we are so glad that we did. From the end of July until December we lost all the weight we wanted, Nick 5 stone and myself, 3. Since then we have managed to maintain the weight loss and have never felt like returning to our previous eating habits, nor do we suffer from those 'never satisfied' hunger pangs that we used to have."
"I have lost the equivalent in weight of my 9-year-old daughter! I had tried everything to lose weight, apart from the shakes. I found the programme easy to do. Because the weight loss is so quick, you can see the end in sight. I most enjoyed not feeling hungry and being able to do things more easily. The maintenance is easy. While still eating as much as I want by eating the right food, the few pounds creeping easily come off."
“The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme exceeded what I was expecting. It was easy to do and I didn’t feel hungry. The one-to-one support was just what I needed! Losing my weight has boosted my confidence and ego. I no longer have to wear clothes to cover myself up.”
“The programme was definitely worth doing - it exceeded my expectations! Losing the weight at the rate I did kept me motivated and on track. It was just a matter of following the eating plan which was very straightforward.”
"I found the eating plan very easy to do, and losing my weight has given me so much more confidence. I am really happy with the results!"
"My eating plan was very easy to follow. It handled a lot more than just weight loss. Fantastic for self-esteem! This has brought changes to all areas of my life."
"I have gone through so many diets, some are gruelling and hard work, some I could not sustain. The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme has been a perfect diet for me and it’s exactly what I was looking for. I am achieving more in life and sleeping better. People are saying how good my skin is looking. My really bad dandruff went in the first week. My energy levels have increased and I feel great on it.
I am fabulously happy that I have found the right thing. This is a lifetime change. I love the programme and recommend it to everyone, it has completely handled what I wanted to handle."
"I have tried so many diets and would hardly lose any weight. I am absolutely delighted with my weight loss of 4 stone and I feel completely different."
"This is the best thing that I have ever done for myself. So used to putting the family first that I didn’t notice the weight was creeping on. Then suddenly l looked in the mirror and I didn’t recognize the reflection. I did this for me and I am so glad I did.
Prior to the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme I felt tired, had headaches and back aches. Following Rachel’s advice not only made me lose weight, but made me fitter and healthier in a very short time. I have now lost over 3 stone and feel fantastic. My confidence in myself has risen and so many friends and colleagues are now stopping me t...
"As a man, going to a diet consultant is not the first thing one thinks of. However I had put on far too much weight in recent years and I was not able to shift it. I realised that at my age it was a question of now or never and, above all else, I was fed up with having to buy larger and larger clothes..... Quite a few of my friends and colleagues had suddenly lost weight and looked gorgeous and much younger. Each one mentioned the same name: Rachel Ricketts. Then last year I decided I would go for a free consultation. I felt an immediate rapport with Rachel and realised that together we could do it!
"I am very impressed with the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I’m absolutely delighted that I have lost 4 stone. It has definitely changed my life!
I never thought that I could have lost my weight as easily as I did. Before doing the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme, I was threatened with diabetes which is now a thing of the past – my blood sugar levels and cholesterol are now down. My doctor is very pleased with me! Since completing the programme I walked 30 miles in one week.
Rachel's weight loss programme has been great value for money. I have paid more at diet clubs than I have on this pro...
"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 reached the point where I had enough about my weight and needed to do something about it. From the age of 30, my weight started to go up and up. I decided to go and see Rachel as I knew a couple of people who had done really well with her. In eleven weeks I had lost 25lb. The four stages of the programme were easy to follow. I lost weight quickly which was a very good incentive to carry on with it. Apart from my weight loss, I have more energy and I am feeling great in myself. I used to have a real problem in getting up in the weekends but that is now a thing in the past.
I have read a few testimonials and on a few occasion thought I was reading my own story. I too was a person that could eat anything and never gained weight. That was until I had a baby and the menopause arrived. In my twenties I was hovering close to the 50 Kg mark, the thirties my weight increased to the 60kg mark and at 49 I was definitely hovering too close to the 70 Kg mark. I just woke up one morning and thought enough...I want to do something before I turn the BIG 50. That was three months ago. Today, I am 9.5 Kg lighter, and have reduced 10 cm on my bust and hips as well as a whopping 18cm on my waist. Every aspect of my life has seen a positive impact – my sleep pattern has improved, I have far more energy, I am less irritable and there are no more downward spirals. To me this was not just a diet but has shown me a better way of life, I now drink water, go to sleep at reasonable times, no more anti anxiety medication and feel a better person to be around. Daley has been a positive, strong support during my 3 month journey and I could not be more grateful to the Metabolic Weight Programme for my new lease on life...
"I am very happy with my weight loss, I didn't realize just how good it would be losing this amount of weight. I am so glad that I made the plunge and started the programme. I couldn't carry on the way I was as so many different parts of my life was being affected with my weight.
My back, breathing and walking are so much better now. I am now looking decent in clothes!
Apart from myself being very happy with my weight loss - my doctor is very pleased!"
"I feel really healthy, my energy levels are much higher and I feel so much better. During the programme I was not feeling hungry or having cravings, not feeling tempted to break the diet. Now I enjoy getting dressed to go out. I am really pleased with the results. I lost 6 stone in 6 months!"
"Seeing the advertisement for 'The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme' started me on the road to three months that have changed my life for the better. Last August, I was feeling unwell, unfit and miserable as I only had to look at food and I put on weight. I don't have a sedentary job and, despite exercising daily, the weight seemed to pile on. Everyone said, 'It's your age!'
Having seen the pictures of others before me, I was eager to start. I did; straight away after starting the pounds quickly fell off and then the stones and before I knew it I had lost over 3 stones! My family couldn't belie...
"Not only an easy-to-follow programme but lost my weight quickly. This makes me feel so good about myself as I can now wear all my clothes that were so tight before. I will look good in my bikini on my holiday next week! Thank you so much Rachel for all of your support."
"The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme has been very easy to follow – it has changed my eating habits.
My husband is very proud of what I have achieved with the programme. I am now wearing clothes that I haven't been able to wear for ages. I went on holiday and was able to wear a bikini - I can’t remember the last time I was able to wear one! I love the way I look and feel. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 10 and have lost 2 stone 10lb.
In addition to the weight loss, I feel a lot happier about things. I can cope with stress much better and I am no longer having headaches. I am 100% healthi...
"I lost 3 stone in 3 months. In this short time I went from a size 16-18 to a size 8-10! I felt great, wasn't hungry and I found my plan really easy to follow."
"Well, I have tried them all! Cheated often, but this time it was different. I had the feeling this diet was the one and it was!! Rachel's inspiration led me on and on. Now having achieved my goal weight I will never return to the ‘old days’ but go forward feeling achievement and certainly feeling and looking much better. Thanks a million, Rachel."
