Here are some kind words that people have written about The Harcombe Diet.

“This is the best healthy eating plan I’ve tried and I never feel hungry.” Wilma

“I’ve lost 24lbs. I just can’t believe it. I feel great too – I can’t remember feeling better to be honest. Thank you so much for the diet!” Ceri

“The Harcombe Diet has changed my life. Over 40 years of yo-yo dieting and finally something that is so easy and wonderful, and with incredibly fast results in terms of weight loss. I am so pleased that I found this, not only for myself, but for my family who are now eating healthier too.” Catherine

“I lost 70lbs on this programme. It was easy to follow. I never felt hungry. I could eat out, take lunches to work, go on holiday and carry on with my normal life while still losing weight. It is so practical and effective. All my colleagues were asking me how I had lost so much weight and I actually didn’t want to tell them. I wanted to keep the secret to myself!” Lyn

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when I weighed this morning! What’s more, no hunger cravings whatsoever. What joy to find a route back to a normal size.” Nerys

“I feel like I’ve got a secret that no one else knows – the secret of how to lose weight! I socialise a lot so I need to ‘cheat’ when I’m out and this diet actually tells me how to do that. I have my beer and dinner out but I don’t go mad. This is just fantastic!” Terry

“I read 4 pages and lost two and a half stone – I figured I’d better not read much more!” John
