This really works! Yes, I've tried every 'diet/eating plan/weight reduction programme/club/hypnosis/fast/don't fast/eat breakfast/don't eat breakfast/no carbs/low fat/high fat over a lifetime of weight yoyo-ing so I am more than qualified to say the only thing that has really worked for me is Rachel's Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. 3 stone crept up on me over 3 years and on January 2nd 2019 I said 'enough - it's got to go'! I know that losing weight and maintaining the loss is so much harder when you're over 60 - and I needed to lose it quickly or - as has happened many many times before - I get disheartened and hit the biscuit tin. I have lost the 3 stone in 10 months. Why has it worked this time? Firstly - the non-judgemental, empathetic, knowledgeable (and quite strict at times!) weekly support phone calls 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. Secondly - the staged plan really works. Weaning off sugar and carbs in Stage 1 instead of going 'cold turkey' definitely was a good start (5lbs off in week 1 - that had never happened before. Then the other stages mean that I have a structure and plan to follow eg having put on weight on holiday, first day back, right on to Stage 2 till I'd lost it. Lastly - knowing that there's someone at the end of the phone/email if I'm having a 'bad day/week' so that I don't revert to my old behaviours of solving my problems with the wrong food. I'm not saying it's easy - like anything else, you have to really really want to lose weight and keep it off. However if you stick to the food list and weighing portions it works. So now my mantra is 'stick to the Rachel Ricketts Weight Loss Programme - maintain' not 'it's really got to go'! I'm so happy to have found Rachel Ricketts!

So healthy and easy to follow, a wonderful diet. I was sceptical at first! I did this to improve my metabolism and without a doubt, it worked, just didn't think I would have done this well, really suited me. So healthy and easy to follow, a wonderful diet. Rachel, Mike and Sue have been wonderful and the support was terrific. Never felt better. Thoroughly recommend it!
Pat - Hanch
It's been a journey and learning curve, but I have lost two stone in two and half months. Huge thanks to Rachel, I couldn't have done it without her persistant kindness and encouragement. Not once did she nag me or tell me off just honest advice and lots of encouragement. I feel so much better, more confident and happier in myself. My knees were agony, walking up the stairs took a lot of effort, but now I'm quite sprightly! Best of all is fitting into my favorite clothes, in particular a pair of white skinny jeans that I absolutely love.
Carey Rivers - Salisbury
An excellent experience with great success. From reading the first advertisement, to meeting Rachel, I was totally convinced that it would be beneficial. Since then and in only 19 weeks, I have lost 4 stone - 5 pounds along with many inches across my whole body! I am well on target to achieve my initial goal of 5 stone and my personal desire for a further 3 stone loss is clearly achievable based upon the current successes. My doctor and practice nurses are very impressed and supportive of my efforts. Following many years of attempted weight loss with little if any success, this metabolic weight loss programme is nothing less than a miracle with more than enough quality food to eat making the process enjoyable as well as successful, in short - a "miracle" solution and very well worth the expense. Sent on behalf of my wife, Carol Martin.
Bob Martin - Harrow
It really works! I tried several diets in the past without success. Then I saw the advert for Rachel Ricketts diet. At the age of 85 years and having had 2 total knee replacements and struggling with mobility, I decided I had to lose 2 stones. I have found this diet so easy to follow and it has certainly re-educated my eating habits. I have lost my 2 stone plus and feel great. I no longer have back ache, oedema of my ankles has gone and I don't wake up at night with cramps, and I walk so much better, and feel 10 years younger. A huge thank you to Rachel and team for your great support.
Josie Haynes - Bexley
Do not hesitate to sign up to the Rachel Ricketts Weight Loss Consultancy! I really did not think I would get an answer when I rang the Consultancy only two days into the New Year, but Mike picked up and from this very first conversation I was motivated to start Stage 1. When I said I wanted to lose three stones for my daughter's July wedding he simply said "Oh yes, we'll do that," as though it were the easiest thing in the world. I found out that it was! My eating plan was geared to me, I ate the foods I enjoy and I didn't feel hungry. The weight fell off. I have gone from a size 16 to a size 10, have a completely different shape, a whole new wardrobe, including the prettiest mother of the bride dress, and lots and lots of compliments. Rachel then Sue supported me with weekly advice, which was a huge motivator. Signing up to this programme was the best decision. No going back!
Janet Swallow - Abbots Langley
This truly works! My weight had crept up over the years and to be honest I hadn't really noticed. I was diagnosed lately with an underactive thyroid and eventually found the scales showed 11st 9 lbs. I felt so tired and defeated that I thought as a 50 + woman on thyroid medication that this was just how life was going to be for me . Then one day...I saw an advertisement in a magazine for Rachel Ricketts Weight Loss Programme. In all honesty I have never joined a weight loss club or even followed a weight loss programme before this so I was in unknown territory but I knew that I needed to take back control of my weight. So I signed up. BEST THING I EVER DID. I lost 16 lbs and have never even felt hungry. Rachel & Sue are brilliant at what they do. I am so delighted with my new shape and am wearing clothes that I had put to the back of my wardrobe thinking that I d never fit into them again. I would encourage you to give this programme a try. I m so glad I did.
Maria - Lingfield
I feel like a new person having lost 21lbs following the easiest weight program I have ever tried. I love the new me. 👌 I was never hungry and now enjoy experimenting with my meals since reaching my target weight. Thanks to Sue & 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.
Heather Macleod - Motherwell
Didn’t think I could have lost the weight that I did. I had tried everything and couldn’t lose weight so really pleased having a lost a stone with The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I am really chuffed with my weight loss , I look and feel much better. Sleeping has improved. Used to get a lot of pains in my ankles which have now gone . Made good lifestyle changes. I am in a good pattern of healthy eating, cravings for chocolate have gone. Found the recipes that came with the programme very good. Can’t tell you when I was last this weight.
Sharon - Tadworth
This is an excellent programme for weight loss. I have lost 12kgs and I now get into a size 12 jeans easily. I can not remember being this size for absolutely years. Everyone is commenting on how good I look, I feel great. It is great to be able to take things from the wardrobe knowing they will fit comfortably. Having the weekly calls from Sue was great if you are unsure of anything and great moral booster. Highly recommend this easy plan to anyone.
Kathleen Seward - Aberdeen
Initially surprised at cost, considered quite high which perhaps kept me focussed over 5 months. Weight came off very easily, I was aware of knee ankle and hip pain and struggling with standing up from floor/ low seating etc prior to losing weight but now find moving with ease and no discomfort, eg playing with young grand children. My little grandson weighs 23lbs currently and is heavy to carry for any length of time, I realise ~I have lost more than he weighs, what a relief for my joints with every step I take. Delighted with that. Additional costs now, getting new wardrobe! It is great finding size 14 comfortable I have lost just over 2 stone and dropped 2 dress sizes. Really chuffed! I found the support/weekly phone calls useful and enjoyed chatting with Sue. A very positive and the first successful weight loss in my life.
Alison - Norwich
It gave me everything that I hoped for! After having tried for years to lose weight, I have finally succeeded! My weight loss of 25lbs exceeded all expectations. I was never hungry and the recipes were very good. Now have a good understanding of what to eat for fat burning and to slow down the fat stage process. I always used to put on weight with stress, but now, I no longer do so. Finally, have the knowledge to lose and maintain my weight! Couldn't have done this without the programme and support. Thrilled to bits.
Sue Westhill - Crawley Down
I needed to lose weight before my son’s wedding this summer so decided to sign up. The Weight Loss Programme is very easy to follow, healthy eating all the way! It has been easy to fit the eating plans around work schedules. The support during the programme was brilliant, thank you Sue for your weekly calls at a time to suit me. I have reached my target weight and am determined to keep it off. I look better, am sleeping better and feel so much better mentally. Now to find that dress! Thank you so much Mike, Rachel and Sue!
Sally Chapman - Norfolk
I have struggled with my weight for all my adult life. Following this plan have changed my life. The weekly support at a time convenient to me was superb. The eating plan is straightforward and the weight loss results are amazing. No gimmicks just sensible eating.
Lynn Salter - Wokingham
I would like to thank Sue my encouraging telephone consultant for all the support she has given me for probably ten weeks!! Wow!! Where did that time go?? Probably went to the same place as my weight- just melted away!! 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 them all & 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 with Stage 2 because I find this way of life is 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 fitting into clothes I haven’t been able to get into for years. I have even bought some Size 12 dresses which I’ve had to put darts in !!! Unbelievable!!! Thanks to Rachel, Sue and the team I feel marvellous. Sheena
Sheena Wiffen - Horsham
What an amazing plan this is. The support from my consultant Sue has been fantastic, a kindred spirit. Have found that this plan works for me, after years of feeling a failure on other diets. It fits around the rest of the family so meals are not a problem. Thank you for giving my life back am now in a happy place.
Carolyn Scott - Steyning
Fantastic results! I really didn't expect much when I started. I'm in my mid-60s and know weight loss is usually much harder the older you get. I wanted to lose 3 stone but would have been happy with one. I lost over 6lbs the first week and reached my ambitious target in just over 3 months. I ended up losing over 4 stone and have gone from a size 18-20 down to a 12-14. I don't really like calling it a diet as it became a way of life. The regular support helped me keep my focus and made me feel a valued individual. It's been over 6 months now and my weight has stayed stable. I still keep my food diary and weigh myself regularly once a week, which helps keep me on track. I've kept to the general principles I learnt and feel so much healthier and have much more energy - which my husband noticed when I happily played football with my grandsons. Thank you so much Rachel and the team!
Gail - Ludlow
This is a well structured and east to follow programme that delivers. I lost 3 stone in weight and understand how I can maintain my target weight. I'm 70 years old and needed to lose weight before hip surgery and general health improvement. I achieved all I wanted because the programme is well thought through, well structured and uses what I can only describe as "food science" with it not being difficult to understand or follow. Like anything else, it offers a promise which delivers ONLY if YOU follow the advice. Be determined!
Paul Clutterbuck - Emsworth
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 the only Programme that I have been so successful with and I didn’t feel hungry! I am now a changed person, I am energetic, enjoy walking now that my arthritis has improved due to my new eating habits and I am wearing clothes a size 14 rather than a 20! You should embark on your journey and like me you will have the knowledge to not only shed those pounds, but know how to keep them off for life. Regarding my husband, he is now fitter than he has ever been in his life!! We are both enjoying the compliment of being told how much younger we look.
Tricia - London
My weight loss journey started about 36 years ago after the birth of my three children. To say I have tried every diet known to man is no exaggeration, none worked. I did lose weight but after reaching a target (or just giving up through sheer hunger) the weight always came back plus more. I have always been an active person which made the weight gain even more frustrating. Gradually over the last few years I began to feel less healthy, less motivated – poor sleep pattern with the addition of an auto-immune condition. I read Rachel’s advert in the Index Magazine and contemplated it more than once. Then in January when shopping for an outfit for my son’s wedding in September, the chosen dress size 18 would not zip up. I decided to contact the Weight Loss Centre. Following my initial consultation with Rachel, I felt at last equipped to tackle my weight once and for all. It has been eight weeks – I have lost over 1½ stones and the programme has, I am sure, permanently changed my eating habits and has given me tremendous extra energy – I would recommend it to anyone.

Alexander and I never thought that we would ever successfully reduce our weight and be able to keep it off. It was seeing your advertisement in Sussex Life which made us pick up the phone. The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme which you explained to us at our first meeting seemed to make greater sense then the alternatives. We were most impressed by your dedication and your explanation of what was involved, so that we then had no hesitation in making the decision to begin the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. The cost became much more realistic when spread over the weeks of the course compared with diet clubs and we had the one-to-one support, 7 days a week if needed, which was impressive and what we were looking for. We lost our appetite for potatoes, bread, chocolate and alcohol quite easily and still have no desire for them. Having been heavy wine drinkers all of our lives we have hardly had a glass since we started! We oldies (nearly 75 and 77) now feel much more alert and physically able than at the start, in fact the benefits were already being felt after the first stone. Before calling on you, Alexander had struggled to maintain his weight below 18 stone. He now weighs 12 stone 9lb. We both feel 100% better and we are enjoying a greater life with the grandchildren (without feeling exhausted), which is of huge benefit. We find the weight maintenance advice in stage 4 extremely helpful and re-read it constantly to keep on target. The one-to-one weekly visits have been invaluable and you have given encouragement and good advice. Finally, but most important, we would like to thank you both very much indeed for all your help and kindness to us. We have always looked forward to our weekly visits and found your support invaluable. We would not hesitate to recommend you.
S. and A. from West Sussex
Easy to follow - no pain. 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 a very good way of living, not really a diet, just how we should be eating!
Lotty Cooper - Hove
At 73 yrs, I am thrilled to have lost nearly 3 stone on Rachel's programme. My blood sugar is lower, and the loss of weight has given me the opportunity to play 18 holds of golf again as my arthritic foot is asked to walk on. I feel smarter in my new clothes, having given my others to charity; and generally feel happier. The essential, positive telephone and email support has motivated me to say on the plan, and has given me a new way of looking at food, so I will continue. Thank you Rachel, I was struggling before you came into my life!
