Hi, I’m Richard Saint, the chief architect and head coach of the tenkilos programme. I spent 25 years working in IT, using an MSc [SoftEng] to create a sector leading company – developing high-end TBT systems for training systems analysts and IT project managers – systems that sold to scores of blue chip clients [BBC, GCHQ, Microsoft, NHS, Pfizer, etc].
I later worked as a troubleshooter for a number of multinationals based in the UK and Far East.
However, in C21 it was clear that humanity was facing a really serious problem . . . overweight and obesity.
... Tenkilos evolves
My experience of devising innovative solutions to seemingly intractable problems led me into a number of discussions about the growing obesity pandemic – already challenging the £140 annual billion budget of the UK’s NHS.
I had also gained extensive experience of the healthcare sector from my long career in IT. This included developing a TBT solution enabling Pfizer to deliver clinical trials skills training worldwide as well as 2 years as a consultant to the NHS Management Executive.
What began as an academic interest in the obesity crisis in 2015 soon led me to undertake a series of courses in: Obesity, Psychology & Nutrition. I saw growing evidence that ‘diets’ were often a part of the problem – whilst very rarely representing a lasting solution to a personal weight problem.
Building from fundamental concepts and aided by research and discussions with experts in the field the tenkilos programme steadily evolved between 2016 and 2020 – before performing flawlessly during comprehensive trials during 2020.
tenkilos delivers ...
tenkilos was developed to tackle a very serious problem and it works for everybody, to date without exception. Yes, you will need to apply yourself; to be willing to learn and to change – by developing an interest in improving your own diet and food habits. The benefits are priceless: improved health and a longer life; the sad reality is that long term obesity shortens life (statistically by 7-12 years, on average).
Every tenkilos customer has my personal promise that we will always act in your best interests – unlike so many in the ‘diet’ industry. The programme encourages you to make your own decisions at every stage of your progress.
tenkilos exists to create a positive transformation for every person that trusts us to help them to acheive a brighter, healthier and longer future.
