Flab-fighters in Hemel Hempstead have lost a whopping 245 stone between them since the start of the year – that’s the equivalent of one of London’s famous black cabs.
Members of the town’s 11 groups, which run in various locations five days a week, achieved this by food optimising which involves eating filling foods including pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat, vegetables and pulses.
Consultant Haylea Gavin – who runs groups at St Paul’s Church in Highfield – said: “It’s made a big difference to their lives and their whole families’ lives, and all of them are happier and healthier.
“It’s brilliant to celebrate together because as well because that’s how we’ve been losing weight – together. Every week we support and encourage eachother and on top of that, we have a lot of fun.” Visit www.slimmingworld.com to find your nearest group.
