Alexis - In Jan ‘13 I decided to lose weight – just one year later I’m 4 stone lighter!
I wanted to lose weight after giving birth to my gorgeous little girl, but because I was breast-feeding, I just put it off – being a busy working mum and having sleepless nights in the first few months, the last thing I wanted to do was a crash diet plan!
My family and friends expressed concern about my weight gain, but to be honest, I didn’t really listen to them. I comfort ate to take my mind off everything. When I saw these pictures, I was shocked.
The final straw was when my GP refused to give me a repeat prescription for the pill, as I was classed as obese, based on my BMI. That word suddenly hit me, and I left the consultation room in tears, knowing it was time to change. I thought to my myself I need to lose weight not just for me but for my family if I want to live a long life!
I searched and searched the internet until I found Jane Plan, which I’d never heard of before. It appealed to me as it catered to my everyday needs. So I gave it a go, and even my husband tried the partner meals to support me in the early stages – and it worked! I must admit it was a struggle in the beginning, but I kept focused and determined because I didn’t want to go back to the old me.
Before the diet I was 14st 2lbs, and now I’m 10st 2lbs. I feel so much better about myself and more confident. I don’t feel like the ugly fat mummy anymore! My family and friends are surprised with the progress I’ve made and they too want to try Jane Plan.
Since losing all this weight I’ve realised I can still achieve my dreams in life. I’m a nurse and recently applied for a more senior post – which I got. I personally believe the weight loss has encouraged me to push further in my career plans.

Caroline - Climbing every mountain! Aged 53
I’ve battled with my weight since I was 14 and always been a yo-yo dieter. Jane Plan now forms the backbone of my eating. It works – and because it’s so economical, I’m winning all round.
Despite being very active and sporty I found it hard to shift pounds.
I noticed a lady in my exercise class was getting slimmer every week. When I asked her how she did it, she told me about Jane Plan. I immediately got in touch, my first hamper arrived two days later and I haven’t looked back.

Clare - Red dress Ready
I’m 5ft 2in and small-framed, so carrying extra weight and squeezing into size 14s felt really uncomfortable. My weight had crept up slowly so when my husband took some photos late last year I was shocked by how big I’d become.
We thought we’d been eating well, cutting out alcohol in the week and watching our carbs. I wasn’t a snacker either, though enjoyed weekend treats like roasts and full breakfasts. But my portion sizes had crept up, so even my salads were super-sized.
A friend told me about Jane Plan and it seemed too good to be true. The food is delicious – I love the roast lamb, chilli and meatballs. It feels like real food too, rather than being on a diet, which is refreshing. Even though I’m gluten free, my menu’s still wide and varied.
The weight came off quickly and I’m now 8st 2lbs and a size 8–10. I have a chest condition so carrying extra weight meant I was out of breath more, but now it’s easier to be active. I even climb seven floors of stairs to my office!
Highlights for me have been slipping into my first ever pair of skinny jeans and even wearing a bikini on holiday. In fact, the only problem now is I need a whole new wardrobe…

Anna - Two stone happier.
As a designer, how I look is really important. Since losing two stone with Jane Plan, I feel much more confident. Now when I walk into a room or client meeting I feel completely different – not self-conscious or worried what people think. Everyone’s noticed the change and even my business has benefi
As a vegetarian, I‘ve always eaten healthily but Jane Plan taught me to watch portion control, it’s not enough to just eat well. The food is delicious and even though I lost the weight some time ago, I always have some Jane Plan to hand. It’s great after a ‘naughty’ weekend!
For me Jane Plan isn’t just about food but learning new habits. And their weekly support is invaluable – I think it’s the reason why two years on I’ve kept the weight off.
“I was forever trying to lose that extra weight. Jane Plan taught me new habits, the support was invaluable and two years on I've kept the weight off.”
Heather - Supermodel at age 62
I was sick of battling with my weight. Jane Plan was so flexible (I did the Weekends Off Plan) and I lost nearly 3 stone. As a cook myself I was nervous about having food delivered, but it’s absolutely delicious – I give it 10/10.
I had just retired and wanted to make a significant change in my life. I was sick of battling with my weight and needed a solution that suited my lifestyle. I looked at other diet plans but thought Jane Plan was the most appealing. I was right – it was fantastic and I lost almost 3 stone!
That was a year ago now and I’ve kept it off. It was so flexible – I did the Weekends Off plan. It feels great to be gorgeous in my 60s. In fact, on a recent shopping trip to Monsoon for a dress I was asked to model for them!

Claire-Louise - Confident for the camera
I struggled with my weight for many years, so wasn’t after a short-term fix but a long-term solution to losing weight. I’ve lost almost three stone with Jane Plan and can honestly say it’s been life-changing.
Most importantly I’ve kept the weight off and now use Jane Plan to keep things that way.
Working long hours in a theatre means sometimes it’s hard to eat healthily. I keep my diet box to hand so I’m not tempted to grab unhealthy food on the run.
Since losing the weight I’ve been offered a fabulous job in TV and feel completely comfortable in my new high profile role! One of my greatest pleasures is altering my clothes to fit the new slim me; it’s a great feeling.

Annie - Back in jeans and no more comfort-eating
I’m 49 and had been battling with my weight over the last 3-4 years. I had to face a few more challenges than usual last year and, as many women do, I found myself turning to food for comfort.
When I took the selfie above in the summer I weighed in at my heaviest weight since giving birth – and that was 13 years ago – so I knew it was time to take action.
I’d used a number of different diets in the past, but nothing ever seemed to work. This time I wanted something pure, simple and easy to follow. I knew if everything was done for me, and I could get myself in the right mindset, then I’d be successful. With my 50th birthday looming, I was determined!
I lost 7lbs in my first week, and since then I’ve consistently lost 1-2 lbs a week. I’m now 16lbs lighter. I manage to combine Jane Plan with an incredibly busy work and social life.
These days, I’m wearing jeans for the first time in about 3 years – I’d forgotten how great they feel!
