Barbara Moody - Woodend

Excellent Service. Clear and easy to follow way of eating for life, not a diet fad. Super support with calls and email which makes it easy to access and follow from anywhere in the UK. I have lost 3 stone so far and feel so much healthier with all the warning illnesses now being reduced and gone. The plan is methodical and with the consultations tweaks made to suit your lifestyle.

Amanda Rothwell - Newscastleton

I have been trying to lose weight for 50 years and have finally succeeded! So glad that I read the article in Good House Keeping about the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. A very straightforward plan to follow which I really enjoyed and felt very well on it. Didn't feel hungry and wasn't struggle with cravings. My whole attitude has changed towards food. The support was very helpful and encouraging and got me through some difficult times, it was an essential lifeline for me. Some great improvements apart from weight loss and clothes fitting so much better: more confidence, sleep much improved, more energy and swelling in ankles and pain in knees gone. The programme has enabled me to finally be in control of my weight. Would 100% recommend this programme to anyone.

Joan Phillips - Croydon

Thrilled, in fact over the moon. I am totally committed to The Metabolic Weight loss Programme. Tried so many diets and got nowhere. This is the only healthy eating plan I have done. Can’t praise the programme enough. Haven’t been this weight for 9 years. I feel so well, so much better, never slept so well, got loads of energy, blood pressure is down. The bad sciatica that I used to get has gone. I am not feeling hungry at all, no cravings, my sweet tooth has gone. Not missing chocolate or white bread – never thought that would happen! Very helpful having a consultant to talk to every week. I used to treat myself with food, but now I am upgrading from treating myself to food to treating myself to an IPad instead!

Linda Johnson - Hawthorn Corner

I have just finished the programme losing a total of 2st 6lbs. I have a small amount to go but I'm confident that I can get to my goal. I decided enough was enough having put on a lot of weight comfort eating after a number of personal situations and bereavements. I read the reviews and just did it. Rachel was very nice and I felt very positive having chatted to her. I had time to decide if the programme was for me before committing. I was really impressed with that. I was then called by my mentor Sue. What A Star! I told Rachel that she was assertive and kind. Her manner is very encouraging and I couldn't have done it without her. A couple of wobbles ending in emotional emails resulted in her motivational comforting calls. If you are thinking about losing weight I would recommend you have a chat with Rachel. It's not a magic wand and not cheap but with commitment and the amazing support it is so worth it. You will get results. Food wise, it's normal food, no fads I have just finished the programme losing a total of 2st 6lbs. I have a small amount to go but I'm confident that I can get to my goal.

Thank you Rachel and Sue, I now have a whole summer wardrobe I can get back into.

Jill H - Bexhill on Sea

Loving it !! The Metabolic Weight Loss Program is wonderful, the advice from the very beginning has been fantastic and knowing you can just pick the phone up and speak to someone is such a help! I was in a very bad mental and overweight place, I had been eating for a long time all the bad foods trying to console myself but of course it was the worse thing to do, so when I started this I liked the way you gradually got into the eating plan and for me it helped enormously because I was slowly getting rid of the unhealthy food onto the healthy! Having the phone call every week from Rachel or Sue was such a great help! I have lost two stone and on my way to loosing the third, I feel amazing mentally and physically and have so much more energy. It is amazing how the plan doesn't make you feel hungry and you are eating so healthy and now I'm in control which is a great feeling. My skin looks so healthy and I am now exercising and really enjoying my life! Thank you Rachel and Sue I now feel back to me again if not a better me!!

Marion W - Haywards Heath

I am so pleased I have done this. I was so lucky to have read the ad about the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. Tried so many diets, but never got the results that I have got with this. Following it was not a slog. I feel very much better. Amazed at the difference in my shape. Excellent support, my consultant became a good friend of mine. I have recommended this to others and will carry on doing so.

Margaret Cosham - Wickham

I love The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I decided to do your programme because the testimonials were so inspiring. I now want to inspire others with this review. Health wise the programme has stood me in good stead. My cholesterol is down thanks to the programme. Feeling so much better in the mind because my body feels so much better. In fact, feeling tons better! No cravings and all bloating has gone. Easy to follow. My consultant was smashing, she really helped me. The programme works and I am delighted!

Ann Gale - Ashton under Lyne

A tool for life. I had never been overweight until the menopause. My eating habits hadn't changed but yet my weight was increasing. That weight has now gone and I am absolutely over the moon. Weighing less than my adult children. There is no doubt, The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme really works. Working with you has given me a better understanding of my body. It's brilliant that I am maintaining my weight. Feeling very well, I am over the moon!

Terri - Felbridge

The Metabolic Weight Loss Is the programme I would highly recommend to everyone. I would highly recommend this diet for people experiencing difficulty in losing weight. I had my consultation at the end of October 2017, and less than two months later I had lost 1.7 stone. I have not been this weight in over ten years. My energy levels have increased so much, and for the first time in years I sleep throughout the night without waking up. My sugar cravings have gone and I feel so much better in myself. The support you get from the consultant is very good and they are always on hand to guide you. I was very sceptical as I had tried every diet under the sun but was so pleasantly surprised how the weight just dropped off. A big thank you to Rachel and Sue for all your support.

Jackie Brown - Bexley

Definitely 5 starts. Thank you so much for the programme. I was on thyroxine and just couldn't shift my weight on any other diet, I finally lost my weight with The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme! I enjoyed following it and it worked well for me. Never felt hungry on the plan. Didn't think it would have been so easy to follow, never felt like I was on a diet. I feel a lot better and have gone down a dress size. Had a lovely consultant who helped me a lot with all her support. I am very pleased with everything.

Elma Robertson - Newton Hill

Would recommend the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme to anyone! The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme is wonderful - nothing faddish about it at all. I am so happy that I discovered this programme as I have done very well on it. I felt very relaxed with my consultant and never felt under any pressure. Apart from my weight that I have lost, I got some good health benefits. My energy is so much better. I used to have to sleep during the day, but not anymore. My heartburn and swollen ankles have gone and I am walking much better. I feel very well. A good investment as I have this programme for life.

Catherine - Cleckheaton

I can't believe the weight loss. I was absolutely desperate to lose weight. Nothing was working for me. I even considered having a gastric bypass. I had been told that because of my thyroid condition It would be very difficult to lose weight. However, with the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme I lost 3 and a half stone! I feel hugely better in myself and much improved confidence and self-esteem. I definitely have more energy and my thyroid medication has been reduced. I wished I had found this programme before. I am very very happy with the results. Thank you for all your support.

Linda - Ferndown

Definitely a good investment! Really happy with the results of the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. It has put me in control of what I am eating and changed my taste buds for the better. I have lost 3 stones and went down from a size 18 to a 12/14. I am now exercising which I wasn't able to do before as I was too lethargic. Clothes that I packed away years ago, I am now wearing.

Pat R - Wirral

Looking for losing some weight and battling with other diets, I came across Rachel’s Metabolic Weight Loss Program. The slow weight process suited me perfectly. No dietary supplements needed, just only natural food. I managed to lose one stone and to my surprise not fighting food cravings! I noticed my mood improved resulting in having more energy. Rachel is very professional, she was always encouraging me. Thanks Rachel for all your support and advice. A weight loss program for life!

Norma Wilkie - Crowborough

For the first time in my life, I have something that I can lose weight with! I decided to do the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme as I was concerned about being overweight and the way it was affecting my health. So simple to follow, not struggling with cravings and not feeling like I am going without anything. Very happy, I have lost 2 and a half stone! Feeling and sleeping better so much better. Much more energy and no longer having to take medication for heartburn, a chronic condition of mine for 3 years. Spare tyre has completely gone! Love wearing all my new clothes. Feeling brilliant at the end of the programme. Can’t believe that I have done so well with my weight loss, never thought I could have achieved this. Thank you so much.

Wendy Hughes - North Berwick

Having tried every conceivable diet I was sceptical. It wasn't that I didn't believe Rachel. I thought it worked for other people but wouldn't for me. I was so wrong! Right from the first week I lost weight and then continued to do so. The plan at first sight is a bit different to others and so you have to concentrate a bit to get your head round it. But, its the difference to other eating plans that makes it work and its not at all hard to eat properly. I also found the weekly phone calls and the advice when I needed it was great and helped me to keep going.

Stephanie Holliday

Best Christmas present I have had for years. The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme was very easy to follow, superb range of foods. Far more energy and no longer get out of breath. Went for a walk in the valleys on Boxing Day. Usually, I would have done 2 miles. However, I just kept on walking and walking and did 10 miles!! I felt like Forest Gump!! My weight loss has made such a difference, clothes are now hanging off me – gone down 2 sizes and lost almost 2 stones. I feel a lot better physically and mentally. Getting loads of compliments and always been asked what I am doing to get such good results. Thank you very much for all your support – never criticised me, always encouraged me, you have given me confidence. People treat me differently now I have lost weight. You have been absolutely brilliant. Couldn't have had a better consultant. Can’t thank you enough.

Yvonne - Lancaster

I have successfully changed lifelong eating habits. I have lost over 10kg (which was a lot of excess weight to carry for a small frame like mine) by staying with the programme for over just a year. The key advantages of this programme over others I have tried in the past are: (1) it is based on science (2) Rachel and the teams’ experience of helping others (of keeping blood sugar stable) (3) ongoing individualised support as each person is unique and may need tweaking of the main programme (4) ongoing support from the knowledgeable team (Rachel, Gill, Sue) It does need strong motivation from the person to stay with it and for that one needs good reasons for doing it, as it takes time to change lifelong habits. The programme has successfully helped me change my eating habits in terms of what to eat and how much to eat. I have noticed that there is more physical energy and stamina. I am now able to do things which I found difficult before. For example, carrying a suitcase up and down stairs, without getting puffed. My body’s immunity has increased. For example, I recently spent several days at a conference, sitting next to a friend who had a cold, but did not get the cold. An added bonus is that my husband’s (he ate more or less what I did and who has Type 2 diabetes) tummy has become smaller. This particular programme is obviously good for diabetics. I wholeheartedly recommend this programme and thank Rachel, Gill and Sue, for getting me through.

Freni - New Malden

When I started the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme, I said to Rachel it would be tremendous if I got in the 10’s. With the amazing support and following the programme properly, I was able to get to this weight! The last time I was this weight was over 30 years ago. I honestly didn’t think I could have done this well. The programme was excellent. I genuinely wasn’t hungry, it was so uncomplicated I never once felt that I couldn’t follow it. Thank you all so very much – I am very very pleased.

Rosemary R - Cirencester

I didn't think I would ever be writing a positive review for a diet - I thought I would spend the rest of my life being fat while trying, and failing, to lose weight. But I count my lucky stars that I came across an advert for Rachel Rickett's Weight Loss consultancy while browsing an old magazine. I truly thought I was cursed - everything I tried diet-wise had failed - but this is the PERFECT weight loss programme. I was never hungry, I lost weight quickly and now, having lost 2 stones in 5 months, I can look forward to a life of being slim. There are so many things to praise I don't know where to start - Rachel's help, for one thing. The weekly phone calls kept me on track. Above all, though, this is a diet for grown-ups! So many diets infantilise women, keeping them in the 'naughty or good' frame of mind. This addresses the central problem that causes diets to fail - how sugar creates cravings - and resolves them. I am now on Stage 3, learning how to reintroduce foods, and I couldn't be happier. I have lost weight, long standing health niggles have cleared up, I have bought new dresses (too many, actually...) and feel on top of the world! If you are struggling with your weight, this is the place to end the fight. Yes, it's not the cheapest diet in the world, but worth every penny as far as I am concerned. Thank you Rachel!

Cat M - Tonbridge

I started the metabolic programme in April 2017. I was surprised at how easy it was to both follow and adapt to the programme in just a few weeks. The weight started to drop off in the first week and has continued do do so. My starting weight was 19st and I am now 15st 5lbs. It has been s steady weight loss which keeps me motivated along with my weekly phone calls from the councillors. I will definitely be continuing with the plan.

Sandra Miller - Birmingham

I have tried several other diets, but none have worked and been so easy to sustain as Rachels. The programme has been easy to follow and certainly suits me. I am nearly at my goal weight and have taken pride and pleasure in my weight loss. The support has been invaluable, encouraging and helpful. I would certainly recommend this diet programme.

Mrs Montier - Lewes

I am so pleased, you have no idea! I am the over the moon - with what I have achieved. It is amazing how the programme works. For many years I couldn't lose weight because of my thyroid. I tried so many different diets but nothing worked until I did the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. After all this time I have finally been able to lose my weight – I haven’t been this weight for years. I couldn't have had a nicer consultant –very helpful and very supportive.
