What You Should Know
Weigh-Less began in 1975 in South Africa with a woman named Mary Holroyd. Holroyd believed that effective weight loss came from support and the ability to change lives through her program. Today, there are more than 2900 groups nationwide, with a presence in the UK, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland. Weigh-Less also plans to expand the Weigh-Less program into other countries like Australia and the United States.
According to the Weigh-Less website, this program is more than a diet plan; it is a lifestyle that incorporates eating right with exercise and “complete wellness”. However, while we found some information about food, and more specifically recipes and “approved” food choices, very little was offered about a healthy exercise program. In fact, the program itself was not laid out in much detail in terms of how it works. Instead, the company seems focused on selling the program through support groups and a healthy lifestyle change without offering substantial facts to help dieters determine whether this Weigh-Less program would be a good fit for them.
List of Ingredients
Because Weigh-Less is not a specific supplement, there is no list of ingredients to share for this program. The program appears to incorporate support groups, regular information, recipes for healthy, low-calorie dishes and the promotion of exercise as its core. While all of these components are essential in a successful weight loss program, there are very good supplements on the market today containing effective appetite suppressants and fat burners to maximize the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. This program does not seem to promote any such supplements.
The Weigh-Less website is rather vague about the terms and cost of the program. To get more information, it appears that you must contact the customer center by phone. It also seems that this program is primarily available in South Africa and some of the surrounding countries right now. Women in other areas of the world will not be able to benefit from the program since a large component of the plan is meeting face to face with others who are trying to lose weight.
- The Weigh-Less program incorporates all elements of wellness, including a healthy diet and regular exercise.
- Studies show that support during weight loss efforts can increase odds for success.
- Customer testimonials are posted on the company website.
- The Weigh-Less program is currently only available in a limited area.
- The company website provides little information as far as specific terms and cost of the program.
- There is no weight loss supplement available with this program to maximize benefits and help out dieters who may have had trouble seeing real weight loss through strict dieting on its own.
While we would definitely advocate a healthy, low-calorie diet and daily exercise as a part of any weight loss program, the Weigh-Less plan is not laid out in enough detail to assume this program will be effective. We prefer a diet supplement that contains proven ingredients, combined with diet and exercise to achieve the best results.
