With over 20 million overweight and obese adults in the UK, leading to an increase in weight-related conditions including diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer, never before has the importance of a healthy, balanced diet and moderate regular activity been so key to the health of the nation.

Since Slimming World was founded in 1969, we have helped millions of slimmers overcome the burden of being overweight. Based on the philosophy and deep understanding that dieting alone is not the solution to long-term weight management, Slimming World offers an integrated approach combining expertise in the psychology of slimming, diet and physical activity, to provide an effective, well balanced and practical solution to our members.

Slimming World groups have the expertise and experience to help in behaviour change. They are also another brick in the wall of social support that is necessary to tackle obesity in the UK.
