About Tenkilos

Hi, I’m Richard Saint, founder of and your personal coach on the Tenkilos programme. I spent my first 25 years working in IT, this included the building of a sector leading company. 

Always interested in tackling difficult problems, in 2016 I began a fascination with a very serious problem facing mankind. . . that being the challenge posed by overweight and obesity. Media coverage seemed to endlessly repeat that this was a completely insoluble problem; certainly the endless diet plans were failing miserably.

I spent the next four years researching and developing a scientifically based solution to tackling a long term weight problem: that work resulting in the Tenkilos programme.

... Tenkilos evolves

What began for me as an academic interest in the obesity crisis in 2016 soon led me to undertake a series of courses in: Obesity, Psychology and Diet & Nutrition. I saw growing evidence that ‘diets’ were very often a part of the problem – whilst hardly ever representing a lasting solution to a personal weight problem.

I had previously gained extensive experience of the healthcare sector during my long career in IT. This included being the chief designer of a software solution that enabled Pfizer to deliver clinical trials skills training worldwide as well as two years as a systems consultant to the NHS Management Executive. My experience of devising innovative solutions to complex health related problems led me into a number of discussions about the growing obesity pandemic – already threatening the £140 billion budget of the UK’s NHS.

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 in 2020/21. Following his own incredible transformation Dr Andy Palmer, long time CEO of Aston Martin, became our Brand Ambassador in 2021. After a lifetime of trying and failing to tackle his peristent weight problem Andy finally conquered it – losing over 23kg in the process as his health also improved radically.

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 embrace change 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 (by 7-12 years, on average, depending on gender/age and obesity level).

Every Tenkilos client 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, after first ensuring that you are equipped to do so.
