More Reviews of The Weight Loss Program
Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your vegetarian diet
program. Have tried adjusting numerous other calorie-control diets to
fit my vegetarianism and always ended up frustrated and not a lot healthier.
The thing that's so good about your program is that it is realistic and
really easy to follow. I've lost 18 pounds so far by combining the principles
of your program with a lot more exercise and it never feels like deprivation.
So cheers - keep up the good work.
I can't remember when I first heard about your program and subscribed
to it, but in the past year I have been able to lose about 80 pounds using
your eating plan as a guide. My start point was almost 230 (I'm just under
5'4") and I'm currently about 145-150. I threw my scale out since
I could not trust myself to use it only once a week and it was the single
best thing I could have done. I get weighed at the doctor's office every
three months and that's enough. Clothes are the best barometer anyway...
Your eating plan is great, thank you so much!!!

Thank you so much for the response. So far I've lost 50 pounds, but I
still need to lose about 50 more. I used to live in the UK and weight
was never a problem because I walked to the shops or down the high street.
Now, however, I live in my car. I really wish I was in a more sane place
where I could park my car forever, but I am in the Midwest where everything
is sprawling. Thanks again for your kind words of encouragement. I really
think you have the best value for money in the diet industry!

My husband and I started your diet in May, 2003, and set as our goal to
lose 40 pounds each by the end of 2003. On December 31, 2003, I had lost
41 pounds, and my husband had lost 50 pounds! We are now down to 148 and
170, respectively, and look and feel great! Your diet was so simple --
the fast food alternatives really helped us (especially Subway), because
we both work and it's hard for us to prepare lunches. In retrospect, I
think what is especially good about your diet plan is that we were able
to start each day by eating a satisfying breakfast -- this got us through
the mornings without being hungry or snacking. Breakfast is my favorite
meal on your plan. We are now trying to maintain our new weights. What
we have been doing so far is basically staying on the diet, but once or
twice a week eating a heartier, higher calorie meal. It seems to be working
ok. Thank you for putting together such an easier, workable diet plan!

I'm delighted to tell you that I followed your advice on how to lose weight
and have lost 50 pounds since mid-June (from 172 to 121)...
Karen H (NY)
I'm very thankful and impressed with your quick response. Just to let
you know, of all the 'diet programs' that I have seen yours is the closest,
if not the actual, to the kind of food that I like to eat! Here in America
they say 'ediets' is the best on the web -- but I've got news for 'they'
(them) -- it's the Anne Collins Diet Plan. Thanks for being you - you
are simply unique!

My husband has lost 55 lbs using your "diet" and has kept it
off for over a year. I am a little slower and have lost 20 lbs and still
have 20 to go! Thank you for putting this out on the internet!

I just wanted to tell you your recipes are great! I did not believe I
could lose weight and eat potatoes....its true I can I have learned to
like fat free or low fat topping options and the potatoe fills me up at
dinner so much that I don't even want dessert. I look forward to trying
all of your recipes this year! Why didn't I listen to you a year ago?
In 3 and one half months I have lost 40 lbs. and am extremely pleased.
This is the easiest diet I have ever been on!!
Your web site is terrific and I'm so pleased to have surfed across
it by accident. The first time I logged on, I read EVERY page with enthusiasm
and fascination that a diet could be so easy to follow with
creatively varied menu plans. No person could ever be bored with the selection
of great food options. Congratulations, I hope many more people join the
Anne Collins lifestyle success. Regards and thanks from a
very happy customer.

...as for the diet, its progressing fairly well. Over a 6-week period,
Ive lost 17 lbs. and have 12 lbs. more to go to reach my goal. My
husband has lost 20 lbs. and is about half way to reaching his goal. What
I feel really good about is that Im finally fitting into the clothes
I last wore before I got pregnant with my 3rd child (about 3 ½
years ago) - Ive lost many inches off my waist, hips and butt, and
have gone down from a size 11/12 to a 5/6. My son just received his First
Holy Communion last weekend, and I was absolutely thrilled when I fit
into the same 5/6 dress I wore for my daughters First Communion
4 years ago I received tons of compliments. Regards,

I am seriously overweight and have been unable to stick to any diet for
more than a few hours. I've tried them all - Atkins, Zone, Fit for Life,
Weight Watchers, Diet Doctor, Jenny Craig, Slimfast, cabbage soup, fasting
... nothing compares to your programme... Your motivational messages have
really struck a chord with me - it's the language I've been looking for
my whole adult life, so thank you from the bottom of my heart... quite
frankly none of your food tastes like "diet food". Even one
of my daughters (the 5 year old) who normally won't even look at a dinnertime
meal has fallen in love with your recipes. Last night - for the first
time in her young life - she wanted SECONDS!!! Can you believe it? Thank
you again for your vast knowledge and your wonderful diet, and for your
genuine compassion for people who are trying to lose weight. It's the
winning combination I've been searching for and at age 37 I assure you
I've been searching for a long time..."B.C." I call the period
of time before I joined your programme!! In my calendar that means "Before
Collins". I was overweight in the years B.C. I had no control in
the years B.C. I felt like a food failure in the years B.C. I was a binge
eater in the years B.C. But that's all changing!!

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you! I'm 43 years old and by regular
USA standards, I'm considered "obese" (5ft/2in, 164 pounds (based
on my last checkup). Honestly, I don't know how much weight I lost in
the last week and half. I just know that I feel GREAT! My stomach issues
have gone away and I'm sleeping better. I have noticed that my tight size
14 pants are fitting much better. Although I've been walking on a regular
basis, my energy level has increased allowing me to walk faster (2 miles
versus 1.25 miles in the same time). Best of all, my husband has started
working out with me. I know that I'm committed to this weight lost and
I just want to thank you in advance. I'm learning how to read labels and
portion control (I actually measure everything that I put in my mouth
and have cut my fat content). I love this diet! It's so easy to follow!!!!
It makes sense and your tips actually help me stay in control! Thanks
Sandra G (Illinois)
I'd like to compliment your organization on an excellent diet plan, easy
to follow, SENSIBLE, lots of variety ... with the only collection of recipes
that I consistently enjoy ... I have thousands of recipes and yours are
simply the BEST!!! I find it much easier to be on this diet and also cook
for my husband (who has heart disease)... hard to do on other diets. Before
I was always making two dinnertime meals. Thanks for simplifying our lives!
It has been very well spent money. We're looking trimmer already. Let
us know if you publish a cook book.
