Welcome to your NEW Xpress Slimming Club

We are excited to bring a new slimming club to the UK for the first time in 50 years – for free!

Xpress gives you the opportunity to lose weight the fastest way possible and discover our unique mindfulness approach


The new Xpress Slimming Clubs combine LighterLife’s expert eating plans with weekly meetings, resulting in fast and effective weight loss.

In your Xpress meetings, you’ll meet new people who have similar dieting experiences, start to recognise unhelpful behaviours and attitudes around food and receive first-hand support from those in attendance. The time will be used to delve further into why people overeat, and to develop the skills that make lasting changes.


Who are Xpress meetings for?

Every meeting is free to attend, and is open to everyone, whether you are currently following a LighterLife plan such as Total, FlexiFasting or Management, or whether you’re interested in a new approach to losing weight.


So what makes Xpress different?

We’re not focusing on recipes and exercise because we know you’re already a dieting expert – you’ve been listening to the ‘simply eat less and move more’ messages but they haven’t worked for years…


By attending an Xpress meeting, you will enjoy:

  • Free weekly meetings, including weigh ins
  • No joining fee
  • A new approach to a healthy mind and body
  • Access to LighterLife’s range of products
  • Fast weight loss – lose a stone a month


Xpress meetings are designed to:

  • Boost confidence, self-esteem and assertiveness
  • Help members discover the real meaning of “comfort eating”
  • Manage tricky feelings like anger, guilt, worry and stress
  • Find out more about themselves and relationships with food
  • Create new strategies for dealing with life’s obstacles without reaching for food


What our clients say:

 “Very informal, discreet, no judgements just welcoming, understanding and very helpful mindfulness discussions.” Anne

“I attend each week with my wife and we help each other stay on track. The meetings have a relaxed atmosphere and offers great support.” Stuart

“It’s the highlight of my week and definitely carries me through the tougher moments. What I’ve lost in weight, I’ve gained 10 times over in support and friendship.” Sian


Based on more than 3 decades of research

Charlotte's story

“I’ll never yo-yo diet again” 

After spending years yo-yo dieting, enough was enough; my weight was really starting to get me down. My trigger moment came after going to get my blood pressure checked and to talk about reducing my medication. I was rudely told by my GP that I’d be on medication for life and that there was no point in discussing the long term affects or looking at ways to reduce it; I felt my GP had written me off because I was fat. The experience left me furious, so I took it into my own hands to find a way that I would no longer need to take blood pressure tablets every day.
