It was my sister who’d had great success with her own experience with Rachel that encourages me to embark. She looks ten years younger than she actually is, due in part to this diet plan. After six months doing stages one and two I have lost well over two and a half stone and counting. I have been on diets many times in the past as my weight has always tended to fluctuate, sometimes dramatically! This is the first time that I have done what I might call assisted dieting, under the supervision of a knowledgeable dietician. It has made an enormous difference to my success and to my mind the reason is that it has been sustainable. I have had a weekly catchup call from Daley who is Rachel’s charming colleague and it has been very beneficial to be able to talk through any problems, with someone who understands and gives you great advice & encouragement. These people know what they’re doing and you can trust them! I have found my way into a change for life and I feel that once again that it is due to the sustainability of the program. There are lots of things that you “can eat” and I feel that it’s important to say so because whilst dieting does require some self-discipline, it wouldn’t have worked for me had it been gloomy. So you may have to kick the Custard. Creams into touch but there are many healthy delights that you can eat and still succeed. I’d like to thanks Rachel and Daley for their invaluable support, particularly during the first months of my diet program. It was all mapped out for me. So if you were wondering whether to embark,? I would say. Go for it!

I would like to thank the team at Rachel Ricketts for their help in my weight loss journey. After trying to unsuccessfully lose weight on most diet plans on the planet, I decided to try the Metabolic Weight Loss plan. From the first week, I started to lose weight and began to feel more confident about myself. The weekly phone calls from Daley were particularly helpful and I was given expert advice each week to keep me on track. The plan also includes some very good recipes with delicious flavours. The plan has given me a refreshing way of thinking about food and I feel so much better. It’s a plan for life in both senses of the word. Thank you so much to Rachel and the team and particularly Daley with his calm and steady approach.

I am in my 70s and have tried all the diets you can think of. Rachel's weight loss consultancy is different because it is personalised. It has helped me to manage my interaction with food but more importantly, it has helped me to find out which foods make a difference to my personal metabolic rates. Stage 3 is the vital part of the programme and should not be rushed. I have spent 6 months on this so that I can re-introduce foods gradually to find out how my body reacts to each type. Rachel's programme is well researched and has a scientific basis. She has taught me how to monitor my blood sugar levels by careful food choices. The programme is founded on good , healthy eating habits but Rachel's knowledge of how the body works ensures that her programme is so much more. It is life changing and life enhancing. Rachel's consultations are always helpful because of her sensitive approach to each individual, helping them to achieve long-term success. Not only does Rachel provide explanations for what is happening to your metabolism but also gives sound advice about how to manage life in a world surrounded by food temptations. I recommend this to everyone who has struggled to maintain a healthy weight and life-style.

I've been doing the metabolic weight loss programme for 13 weeks and have lost approximately 21 pounds. After the first 2 weeks of adapting to the programme, it was easy to follow and access to support from Daley via whatsapp and via a weekly call was great. I was at the point after 2 children where I genuinely thought I would never be able to lose the weight again but this programme genuinely works and the weekly food diaries are just part of my routine now. Would highly recommend. Michelle

My experience with this program has been amazing. To be honest I wasn't overly heavy, but I was uncomfortably heavy and found i was tired during the day and always had a bit of a gut, despite lots of exercise and a "healthy" lifestyle. I do a lot of cycling and running. After several attempts to lose weight and feel less tired during the day I had a chat with Daley. He explained things in a very simple a clear manor. He went over the concept of a diet being a permanent thing, not just a fad and its something that should be natural not painful. I started and what can I say. I was 83.4 kilos a few months back. Im now 70.1. I have better sleep, more focus and more energy during the day. I have NO cravings for sugar or carbs. I feel a lot more able to simply eat for my body and know what will and what wont help me to be faster, feel more, energy, lose weight, etc. The end result, I've lost weight, I am in control of what I eat and no longer feel I am "on a diet". I simply make choices as to what I want to eat and have no cravings. I am genuinely impressed by this program and Daley's help.

With the help of Daley ,my mentor who has supported me all the way through, the foods I am now eating are so good that I will carry on this way forever!

My lovely taste buds have changed! I’d rather have avocado on cracker please!! So I can only say what are you waiting for, start today, cannot recommend it anymore, I’m proof it works for life!
Joanna Russell - Copsale
I would highly recommend the Metabolic Weight Loss Program. I was starting to creep up in weight every year and every time I would do a quick fix diet, I would lose weight and then gain more back. This program has changed the way I look at eating and my relationship with food. The weekly consultations are the key, I started working with Rachel, who is of course wonderful but then I continued the consultations with Daly. He kept in touch with me over messaging in between our weekly consultations and really helped finesse the plan to suit my lifestyle and tweak things if my weight was starting to plateau, all with such friendly enthusiasm! I was impressed to have such support throughout the process. The way the stages work, you never feel as if you are truly dieting, yet you are slowly weaning yourself off of bad habits and the changes really stick. I am so happy to have lost weight and feel as if I have regained control of the constant yo yo dieting. I highly recommend this program.

I was in the depths of despair! I knew that I had put on a bit of weight after we downsized from a large old farmhouse with land/gardens/animals to care for but when I went for my annual MOT at the surgery, I was horrified to find that I had put on almost two stone, but was also pre-diabetic. A wake-up call indeed! Fortunately, I saw the advertisement in Country Living, with Rachel looking so beautiful, and thought “I wonder if ———“. I took the plunge and made the initial phone call. I was met with friendship, sympathy, kindness and above all Hope! And so I began my journey, feeling that someone actually cared and could help. My husband had died since we moved, and I was at a low ebb. Initially I spoke to Rachel, who was full of encouragement. I was sent the Stage One sheet and was amazed to see the huge variety of foods I could eat. It all made sense, and everything fell into place. I admit that I sometimes felt hungry at the beginning, but once I got into the routine, the pounds began to fall away. I could now feel my clothes becoming looser, and I definitely had more energy. My dogs were pretty chuffed too - longer walks and a more cheerful Mum! Since then, after following Stage Two, I have gone from strength to strength and can wear clothes I had kept for years “just in case” I have lost two stones and am still going down. The whole experience has been a joy and I now look forward to stepping on to the scales! I am pretty certain that my next review at the surgery will show what can be achieved Thank you all, especially Daley, who has kept me on track, and has become a real friend!

If your' stuck in a diet rut, going nowhere, bite the bullet and try this programme. Aged 55 and post-menopausal with a thyroid condition I thought I'd hit a brick wall in terms of being able to lose weight. Historically, I'd put on weight, go on a keto diet and lose the pounds in no time - but that approach just wasn't working, I couldn't shift an ounce. I was a prime candidate for weight gain: my age, my medical condition, more sedentary than I used to be. It all added up and I'd semi-resigned myself to never getting into my size 10s again. But I decided that I wasn't happy carrying the thick wodge of fat around my midriff (and elsewhere). I refused to cede to what I thought was an inevitable slippery slope. In desperation, I trawled the internet looking for a solution. I researched hormone imbalance and metabolic resistance and my findings reinforced my belief that my body just didn't want to play ball anymore. I looked at all sorts of alternative eating plans and finally stumbled across the Rachel Ricketts Weight Loss Consultancy. Having read the glowing testimonials, I duly arranged for an initial free consultation. Mike Ricketts gave me an overview of the programme and was very adept an answering the questions I fired at him. Not salesy at all, no pressure, just a relaxed and informed conversation about their proven weight loss philosophy. I signed up. I should explain at this point that I didn't have a huge amount of weight to lose. My initial weigh-in was 10st 11lb and my target was 9st 7lb. I'm not saying 10st 11lb is fat but for me, with a small frame, I felt very uncomfortable. The excess poundage was making me miserable. I'd lost the definition of my waist and felt bloated. I could not continue allowing my size to balloon. What has manifested over the past four weeks of this new eating regime has been an absolute revelation. In just under 4 weeks I have lost 10.5lb. TEN AND A HALF POUNDS! To say I'm pleased is an understatement. The programme has exceeded my wildest expectations and given me a diet toolbox to take forward. The team at RRWLC will be behind you 100% with their practical advice, diet tips and moral support. The weekly consultation calls incentivise you to stay focused. If you fall off track, there's no admonishment, just structured advice to get you back to where you need to be. They understand that life's obstacles can sometimes hinder a dieter's good intentions! All in all I can sincerely recommend this programme. If you're stuck in a diet rut, going nowhere, bite the bullet and try this one. I'm glad I did.

Joining the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme was the best decision I made to help me lose weight. I found the programme guided me to the best foods and quantities to balance my cravings and bring down my blood sugar readings to the level that I could maintain for weight loss. Daley was key to the whole programme with weekly chats and help at anytime I felt motivated and positive to stay on course. I had tried many other diets in the past without success so I am so pleased to have lost 19 pounds that really show and I intend to continue with the programme and maintenance plan for ever. Thank you Daley and the Weight Loss Centre.
Allison Sherbourne - St Albans
This was the second time I have followed this diet. The first was 8 years ago when I needed to lose a similar amount of weight - a stone - and I did it in the same amount of time - 12 weeks. I was then happy with my weight for about 7 years until various life events meant I put it all back on. I lost control of my diet and I also began to suffer with constant indigestion. Result? very unhappy person with a wardrobe full of unwearable clothes. I decided to return to Rachel Ricketts Weight Loss Consultancy and am delighted with the result. Sensible eating that can be fitted around my lifestyle and whats more the indigestion disappeared literally overnight. I am digging clothes out from the back of the cupboard and looking forward to being able to wear my 'new' wardrobe when we come out of lockdown. I found Daley very helpful with great suggestions whenever I had a query. Recipes great too - time they were in a book!
Lesley - Old Sodbury
After years of trying and largely failing on numerous diets not only have I lost almost 2 stone, so far, Rachel has inspired and educated me in the science of fat burning! Her wonderful encouragement has enabled me to view food in a different way. I don’t go hungry, I know what foods to avoid. It’s not a diet it’s a new way of eating and living! A big thank you and give it a try!
Jill - Abertillery
What a difference Rachel, Daley and the Weight Loss team have made to my life. After years of struggling I have now reached my target weight loss; I lost 36.8 pounds and 26 inches in less than 6 months I am absolutely over the moon, I feel great and I have a whole new wardrobe of clothes that I have been unable to wear for years. I have struggled with weight loss of the past 4 years and although had tried many different types of diet my weight was stuck and slowly increasing. I have exercised regularly for many years but I now have so much more energy and look forward to working out each day. What has really impressed me is that apart from the weeks when I have been away on holiday I have lost weight every week -even on the last week before I reached my target I lost 2.4 pounds. The diet was easy to follow and the support is fantastic. I am maintaining my weight even during difficult personal times and this is something that I have struggled with in the past. The plan to reintroduce you to a wider variety of food works really well. I am still getting updates from Daley and the team which I find really helpful and motivating. Thank you for making such a difference to my life.
Jackie Polluck - Ongar
That was a U-turn in my life to myself a many years ago. I not only lost 8 kg for 3 months but learned a lot what my body needs and how to love myself again. I got a great support for Daley, my consultant who was patient with me and tried to answer to all my tricky questions. I look great, I feel great and receive a lot’s of compliments. What can woman dream, I got it! I highly recommend this programme who wants to discover the way to lose weight, to look younger, to feel better through the undiscovered food that we all know. Thank you so much! It was a real U-turn to myself!
Iryna Hope - Slough
This diet has proved to be the best ever for me, I had weekly support from my consultant Daley who helped me to understand what causes weight gain and how best to control that. It has enabled me to find alternative foods which satisfy my hunger rather than having cravings when I would eat all the wrong food. So if you have tried all other diets ? Try this one "IT WORKS".
Ingi Livingston - Calne
I would like to thank Rachel, Daley and the team for all the support you have given me. Thanks also for the recipes. I have lost 36lbs and am hoping to lose another 1/2stone once we are out of the current health problem. I have not been able to lose weight easily as I have a mobility problem. I have found the plan very educational about foods that we eat. Now I know what I can't eat so will avoid them in the future. This is my new life style eating plan. Many thank to Daley for his cheerful weekly encouragement.
Pauline Swallow - Watford
I would like to thank you Rachel, and Daley, for all the support you have given me in losing my initial target of one and a half stone! I've learnt so much about food and my reactions to it! I decided to try to lose another half a stone but have been struggling - then the virus happened and stress, which is one of my main problems, kicked in! However, I have managed not to gain any weight so far, and am still hoping to tackle that last half a stone as soon as I can! Thank you again for your support.
Janice Le Grys - Hassocks
This has been a brilliant method of weight loss. I have not found it difficult and with the support from my mentor I have lost over three stone in weight. I am so thrilled to look and feel so good and this brings a new confidence, not to mention the positive effect to my health. I want to say a huge thank you to all at Rachel Ricketts and I am just so pleased I took the step to follow the plan, which I have to say is quite straight forward to follow. To any who are wondering if to give it a try I would say just go for it !!
Heather Robey - Haverhill
It seemed quite a drastic diet to start with & I was unsure that it was the diet for me, however after persevering for the first couple of weeks, I couldn’t believe how much more energy I had, & wondered why I hadn’t found out about this diet before. I lost the weight from around my middle which at the age of 51 thought it was virtually impossible. I have lost 9kg so far & 10cm off my waist. It has made me look at food in a different way, I am more conscious of what I’m eating & what to eat to avoid feeling hungry. I would still like to lose a little more weight, but I’m confident that now I have adopted this way of eating this will be achievable by sticking to the basic principles. The weekly support was really helpful & non-judgemental. I love the interaction through WhatsApp, with recipe ideas & inspiration, offering the comfort of knowing that help is always at hand.
Jane - Portugal
Apprehensive at start because of the price, read all reviews, took some time to think about joining , it was worth it. Excellent support from all, by phone or email. Not a cook, recipes they sent were very good. Excellent diet, easy to follow, not at all hungry. Lost so far 19lbs, Tried every diet known to man, but this one works. Would recommend spending the money. So if any of you are thinking about it, go for it you wont regret it.
Noreen Wiseman - Banf
Your diet has helped me lose a lot of weight safely and healthily. I have never been hungry and I have received excellent support and advice from my Consultant. Thank you. I would recommend this approach to anyone who wants to lose weight and stay healthy. Valerie
Valerie Bardsley Jones - Buxton
I have learn so much from this program. I am not a very discipline person and not a very patient one either. I have never succeeded in loosing weight because I am also easily led. But this time being led in a right direction was a great success. I have lost 17 pounds, finished the program and I am still enjoying the same food. I learned that like everything in life has consequences and food included. This program made me healthier which was my target and better appearance was the bonus. Thank for Daley for being there and always ready to help.
Daniella Schiller - Colby
After struggling with menopausal weight gain for the last three years and trying lots of different diets, I had given up hope of ever losing the excess weight. I discovered Rachel Ricketts on the Internet and have not looked back. I have lost one and a half stones in 16 weeks and am now four pounds below my original target weight. My partner also decided to do the diet with me and he has lost nearly two stones. The diet did involve cutting out one or two things, which I thought were healthy options that I had been eating, which was a shock, but Rachel explained how certain foods affect the way the body deals with insulin causing fat storage. It has therefore been a learning curve for me. I have enjoyed the diet and my mindset has been changed totally regarding food and I now look forward to my treats rather than just taking them for granted. Rachel has been an absolute star in explaining everything and I look forward to her weekly calls as she is an absolute inspiration. I would highly recommend doing this diet, as if I can do it anyone can, and it actually works!
