testimonials from Some of the people we've had the pleasure of helping

Dr. Andy Palmer

CEO Aston Martin 2014-2020, Chairman Optare plc.
Age: 50's. BMI at programme start: 30.

For the last 30 years I prioritised work – which came with a pretty lavish lifestyle. This resulted in a weight bordering on obesity and with the onset of T2 diabetes I realised that I needed to re-evaluate my lifestyle. But work stress escalated and my weight maxed in April 2020 at well over 100kg; my health was really starting to suffer – things had to change.


Over recent years I’d tried many things, including expensive residential weight camps – all to no lasting effect and then I connected with the Tenkilos programme and 10 weeks later I knew that I had turned a corner that represented a permanent change. In September 2021 I achieved the milestone of having lost over 20kg. In Dec 2021 I achieved my ‘goal’ weight of 73kg and I know that, for the first time in my adult life, I am totally in control of my weight.

The Tenkilos initial training modules piqued my interest – being well written and informative. I learned how food really impacts my body, what was influencing my diabetes and even how to use food label information – properly. Over the following weeks I started to switch some foods to healthier alternatives; making my own guided decisions as my knowledge quickly expanded under expert coaching – which was always highly professional.

I quite quickly reached 90kg – for the first time since my London Marathon some 20 years earlier. At that stage I could once again take walks without getting breathless, even using these for business meetings. I decided to stabilise my weight at 73kg, with my T2 diabetes back in the normal zone; I’m now working to reverse it. Tenkilos changes your relationship with food – putting you in control. Nothing else I had ever tried delivered a significant, or lasting, improvement.

I joined Tenkilos having failed to achieve any lasting benefit from a myriad of diets; my job means I'm constantly surrounded by tempting foods. The training modules were really interesting and in many ways changed the way I started to think about life, diet and my own experience. Over time and with coaching they helped me to make a huge difference to my decisions regarding food choices.

The programme requires some effort, partly self observation, but because the benefits are so clear from the outset it seemed no effort to include this into my daily routine. My coach and I have worked together from the start to identify and meet goals along the way, adjusting as necessary to obstacles life throws up. The encouragement you get always allows you to find the positives and go again.

I have found my coach to be thorough, honest and to the point which is refreshing and much needed when you have a weight problem. The emails that follow every coaching session are great for referencing back and people will hold onto positive comments made in these e-mails to motivate them during the remainder of the week.

As the programme progressed I definitely found my mindset had altered, I started to set goals, often actually achieving them, and I fully intend to continue this discipline post programme. In the past being away on a break or celebrating have always meant a serious weight gain and I have discovered through this programme a number of techniques which have meant the scales have stayed the same or even continued to drop – without always having to compromise on food or that glass of wine!

I now realize that I can have a good time without losing control or undermining the goals that I am now working towards. Tenkilos is so much more than blindly following some diet plan. I’ve learned to make and understand my choices, the consequences of poor foods, and to make informed decisions that have radically improved my weight, health and outlook (I lost 9kg in the initial 10 weeks all through my own food choices – most that now represent permanent changes).

Design Programme Manager, Jaguar Land-Rover.
Age: 49. BMI at programme start: 28.

In recent years I’d noticed my weight steadily increasing and I started to feel less healthy; I was also less motivated to exercise as the years passed.  My previous attempts to lose weight or lead a healthier lifestyle had mixed results, with nothing delivering any significant or  lasting effect.  I recognised that a real effort to make a permanent lifestyle change would be in my best interest.

The Tenkilos website gave me a good insight about lifestyle change with a view to being able to make my own choices without the need to exclude any foodstuffs. In fact I found that the programme specifically teaches you how to identify those foods that pose a threat and how to then exercise control - which is far more useful in the long term than what always proves to be a (short term) ban.

The training modules and information provided gave a motivational insight in needing to make a permanent change to my consumption of a number of unhealthy foods and how much of a negative impact they were having on both my weight and my health.

I started at 81Kg back in October 2021 and reduced my weight to 72Kg over the three month programme, despite this including Christmas and an all inclusive holiday. Focusing on a healthier lifestyle with conscientious decision making and using the My Fitness Pal APP with twice weekly coaching from Richard enabled me to stay motivated and encouraged throughout the programme. I am confident that I have achieved a permanent lifestyle change; at a very important time in my life.

You learn what we all really should know about healthy eating and self-control and you then get to practise that new found wisdom on yourself, by making positive changes to your own diet. I am genuinely looking forward to continuing until I reach my personal weight goal of 67kg. My diet is far healthier, my energy levels restored and I feel more motivated in many aspects of my life. The Tenkilos programme enables you to focus on achieving a healthier lifestyle permanently with expert coaching and motivation that supports you to identify and achieve YOUR goals.

Screenplay Writer & Producer.
Age: 60's. BMI at programme start: 40+.

Having been on every diet and a member of every slimming club going, I thought I’d tried everything there was on offer and when I started the Tenkilos programme it was with a mix of desperation and scepticism. I was wrong, dead wrong. On the three month programme itself I lost over 14kg and I’ve just kept going ever since.


Tenkilos has completely re-educated my food knowledge and I’m confident that this intervention will add 10+ years to my life - which is priceless. My personal coach (Richard) fitted the method precisely to my needs - mentally and culturally as well as in a very objective and practical way. The result is that I am now at a weight I haven’t seen in the previous 25 years, my waist has reduced from a 44 to 38 and I genuinely feel great [this picture is a 'before' one!]. 

But the best news is that Tenkilos is a lifetime mindset that I know will continue to improve my health and weight into the future. I am eternally grateful to Richard for guiding me through the most important journey of my life. Tenkilos excels by teaching us to take control and make positive decisions. Of course it is not a magic wand solution, you need to be serious about losing weight and prepared to make some effort. I would recommend Tenkilos to anyone with a weight problem who also values the rest of their life.

K. K. Grant

Novelist and Ghost Writer.
Age: 50's. BMI at programme start: 28.

My work as a novelist and ghost writer, published under a variety of pseudonyms, means long hours of dutiful scribing and whilst I try to stay active I found that my weight was on a slow but inexorable rise as my middle years unfolded. In addition to steadily heading in the wrong direction my weight problem seemed to suffer from episodic increases - often following festivities or other social occasions. 

Over the years I have tried a few diets, sometimes achieving a short term weight loss - it was usually back faster than it left ... I was soon, inevitably, heavier than ever. I had no idea why all my diets failed, or even led to weight gain, until I'd seen the Tenkilos training modules. When the reason diets fail is explained so clearly it becomes apparent just what a waste of time 'dieting' is.

I engaged with Tenkilos during its development phase, wanting to lose about 10kg – I wasn’t obese but I’d seen far too many friends heading that way as we all grew older. I used the two-week initial training period to really study the ‘Knowledgebase’ modules – which immediately resonated with my own experience and within eight weeks of starting the programme proper my weight had dropped from 91.5kg to 80.8kg – an excellent 10.7kg drop. That was almost 2 years ago and today I weigh just what I want – which is currently 81kg.

I have seen the Tenkilos website and there’s no point in me repeating what it says – I will just say that it represents the programme accurately and honestly. The Tenkilos programme is incredibly well researched and the coaching is exemplary. If you want to take control of your weight – for life – at the same time learning more about food and the psychology around it than you ever (quite incorrectly) thought that you needed to know – then I’d recommend asking yourself one question: What is solving your weight problem really worth to you?
