Laurence Howland

When Laurence Howland was touching 19st his kids called him fatty. At his top weight he couldn’t walk five minutes from the bus stop to his office without breaking into a sweat.


  • Weight lost: 4st 2lbs*
  • Weight loss plan: Total


For 15 years Laurence had been reliant on blood pressure tablets, but after just four weeks on the LighterLife Total Plan, his delighted GP ordered him to stop: “The transformation was remarkable.

The very low calorie diet (VLCD) helped me lose weight quickly and safely – it motivated me at every stage, and I never felt hungry. Alongside this, the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) group support helped me understand my relationship with food, so I won’t put on the weight again.”

Today, after a 5st* weight loss, and 1500 miles on a bike to the top of the Pennines, Laurence has more energy and drive than ever before and now plays basketball with his teenagers every week.
