Slimming World backs ‘One You’
Slimming World is supporting Public Health England’s (PHE) latest campaign One You to help people make healthier lifestyle choices and future-proof their health.
One You encourages adults to lose weight, move more, eat well, drink less alcohol and be smoke free – from January and for life.
Slimming World and PHE are encouraging people to take the How Are You? quiz, which provides a practical way for adults to take a look at their lifestyle, indicating which areas might need a few tweaks. The quiz provides encouragement and support to help people make healthy changes and makes suggestions to help people continue to their goal of a healthier lifestyle.
As well as encouraging people to take the How Are You? quiz, Slimming World is also offering an exclusive discount for Slimming World Online membership for those who take the quiz and decide they would like support to lose weight.
At Slimming World we know that when you lose weight, you’re already doing one of the very best things you can to future-proof your health by developing healthy habits for life.
Jenny Caven, Slimming World’s Head of External Affairs, says: “We’re delighted to once again be backing Public Health England and the One You campaign. At Slimming World we know that when you lose weight, you’re already doing one of the very best things you can to future-proof your health by developing healthy habits for life. Making lifestyle changes that are small and sustainable – such as following a healthy eating plan without feeling hungry or deprived, enjoying plenty of fruit and vegetables, and becoming more active – can make a big difference”.

Slimming World was founded by Margaret Miles-Bramwell (OBE, FRSA) in 1969 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary year in 2019. There are now more than 19,000 weekly groups supporting 900,000 members across the UK and Republic of Ireland. Groups are run by a network of 5,500 community-based Slimming World Consultants, who receive specific training in the role of diet and physical activity in weight management, as well as sophisticated behaviour-change techniques. Slimming World’s healthy eating plan, Food Optimising, is based on the science of satiety and energy density. Our phased activity programme, Body Magic, eases members into activity until it becomes an intrinsic part of their daily routine. The principles behind Slimming World’s philosophy are based on a deep understanding of the challenges faced by overweight people and recognition that those who struggle with weight carry a double burden, the weight itself and a burden of guilt and shame about their weight. Slimming World’s programme integrates practical, up-to-date advice with a highly developed support system based on care and compassion, and Consultant training focuses on facilitating behaviour change in a warm and friendly group environment. Consultant training is delivered through the Slimming World Academy. Slimming World also invests in a comprehensive research programme to develop its support for long-term weight management. The group support provided by Slimming World is recognised as effective by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the NHS.
