Claire’s story

“I've lost over 10 stone* and feel incredible”

I had tried slimming clubs in the past but none of them ever worked for me. I knew I needed something different, so I joined LighterLife. I weighed 21st 8Ibs at the beginning of my LighterLife adventure. By the time I reached goal I’d lost 10st 4Ibs* and have never looked back.

In the past, I'd turned to food for comfort, but I knew I had to break the cycle.

There’s a lot of
science behind this

And it shows it works. We have over 30 years of research and experience behind our programme, and a range of nutritional, psychological and medical experts, so you can trust we understand and know what can really help you.

We’ve discovered that most people’s food issues have little to do with physical hunger, but that talking them through with a small group of people using proven techniques like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (used in the NHS) is the key to managing a healthy BMI long term. Every year we publish evidence our programme works. In fact the International Congress on Obesity published a paper in 2016 which shows that attending LighterLife groups regularly, along with a VLCD plan helps you lose more weight*.

We’re also incredibly proud to be the only plan on the market that meets all EU and UK standards. We continually invest in R&D and believe this is the best quality you can get and really fantastic nutrition.
