about diets ........
Most diets don't work. Research has found that up to 97% of people who start a diet either lose no weight, or put the weight on again soon after. A high proportion of those put more weight back on than they lost. The Masterclass will teach you how to lose weight and keep it off.
about the diet industry .......
The diet industry, including slimming clubs and diet foods, is big business, benefiting the owners of the companies providing these services and products. In the UK, the diet industry is worth approximately two billion pounds per year. At Weight Sense we care about you, your weight loss goals and your happiness and will help you move towards these.

there is another way
The Weight Sense programme is designed to help you lose weight in a way that works, minimises and manages these impacts. It draws upon the research findings of the National Centre for Eating Disorders in the UK, and the National Weight Control Registry in the USA, which have documented what works for maintained weight loss.
The evidence and strategies for what works, are built into our Masterclass programme which is designed by women for women.
