Please note: Every testimonial on this page (and throughout this site) is from a woman aged over 40.
Note: The following testimonials are from clients who have visited my weight loss clinic in London OR done my online weight loss course, Transformation.
P.S. This is my favourite: “Your program is a rare phenomenon: something which sounds too good to be true but is actually better than it sounds!” (see below)
“It’s brilliant! It’s amazing!
I feel so happy.
I’m wearing clothes I haven’t worn in years!
I’ve been on diets before, and it was so hard.
With this it’s so natural. And I know I’m not going to put the weight back on.
Food is no longer the focus of my life. I’m in control of myself again.
Being older and slim. I can’t get my head around it!
It’s like a miracle.”
EP, 44, lost 13 pounds with Dr. K *
“I definitely couldn’t have done it without the support of Dr K and his approach and couldn’t recommend him more highly.
I now feel in control of what I eat, but still get to enjoy food as much as before.
It’s a brilliant feeling to be the weight I want to be, at the age of 48.”
RK, 48, lost 47 pounds with Dr. K *
“Dr. K is my secret weapon.”
CF, 52, lost 30 pounds with Dr. K *
“If, like me, you cannot face the cycle of losing weight and putting it back on ever again, I think it is essential to have someone like Dr K to support you and change your behaviour to a way of eating which you can stick with, and which is not so punishing that you can never eat any of your favourite foods again!
I have lost over a stone and am not only pleased about that, but, more importantly, think that I am now unlikely to put it back on again.”
PT, 69, lost 22 pounds with Dr. K *
“I was very doubtful I could lose weight and sustain it, before starting with Dr K. Nothing had ever worked in 30 years, so it was with a final leap of faith that I saw him.
The changes required are so gradual and small, and the weight loss is so immediate and consistent, that I have been encouraged and motivated to continue.
Having Dr K available to me every week, to provide encouragement, sound advice and explanations for problems, has helped me stay motivated and strengthen the new habits that will keep me slim and healthy for the rest of my life.
I love the normality of this process- eating anything, anywhere, when I choose. I feel completely in control when travelling, working and enjoying holidays. I don’t have to prepare anything or do anything special, I just carry on with my usual life and adjust with a few simple and effective tweaks – it’s clever.
I am still surprised when friends and family compliment me on a new outfit or remark on how well or fit I look; I am not used to receiving so many compliments from people when they haven’t seen me for a while. It makes me realise how much lighter and more attractive I look now. The thrill of shopping a whole clothes size smaller and wearing styles I haven’t dared to wear for fifteen years, is a great reward and motivator.
I feel lighter, fitter, healthier and more confident than I have done in fifteen years, which is a great boost as I am now in my mid-fifties.
Dr K is a real expert, he has gained my trust and inspired me to lose weight successfully and continue on this challenging and steep learning curve. I am now confident that I will be able to manage my weight for the rest of my life.“
NJ, 54, lost 15 pounds with Dr. K *
“If you had told me three months ago, I would never have believed that I could lose 18 pounds in such a sustainable way”
RT, 51, lost 18 pounds with Dr. K *
“I really am not the sort of person who could put up with starving myself for a long period of time to lose weight, which is why I hadn’t done very well with diets in the past.
This method was much easier. I felt like I could have whatever I wanted and I was still losing weight.
That doesn’t mean I didn’t make changes, but it meant I wasn’t having to deprive myself to lose weight”
TJ, 54, lost 22 pounds with Dr. K *
“I finally feel in control of my weight”
MB, 53, lost 29 pounds with Dr. K *
“My husband noticed that I had lost weight yesterday and commented on it favourably, so I feel I am getting somewhere now and all thanks to yourself as I could never have done it without your guidance.”
RA, 62, lost 14 pounds with Dr. K *
“After the first week, I felt a bit sheepish because I thought I had indulged a little too much. When I saw that my weight had dropped, that’s when I thought ‘this is amazing!’ ”
TR, 49, lost 23 pounds with Dr. K *
“I am down to 10 stone now which I am ecstatic about. I really can’t believe that, with your help, I have achieved this and it certainly feels so good.”
LJ, 58, lost 45 pounds with Dr. K *
“I’m glad I made the right decision and saw Dr. K. I know I couldn’t have lost this weight without him”
DW, 52, Lost 30 pounds with Dr. K *
“Other people talk about changing habits but you actually do it”
WA, 62, lost 18 pounds with Dr. K *
“I certainly would highly recommend this process to anyone who wants to lose a substantial amount of weight. It has been brilliant for me so thank you again.”
LM, 58, lost 31 pounds with Dr. K *
“It’s such a nice feeling to shop for clothes you like, rather than clothes that fit you”
SL, 51, lost 21 pounds with Dr. K *
“I am now just under 11 stone so hugely delighted with that. Tell your clients that your way works if you are open to it.”
JH, 56, lost 23 pounds with Dr. K *
I have tried so many weight loss programs in my life.
And yet I have never done anything like Dr. K’s program before.
It is different, in the best way.
There is no pressure, only encouragement.
There are no deadlines. There is no calorie-counting.
It is the first plan that I want to continue forever.
It does not feel temporary, but instead feels like a do-able, realistic, lifestyle adjustment.
This program is not a flashy, lose-weight-quick plan, but a plan that allows real women who struggle with their weight to normalize their relationship with food and finally take control – all in small, manageable steps.
The women in the online forum are amazingly supportive, and it is so helpful to be a part of a team working together on a common goal.
And last but not least, is the personal and kind attention of Dr. K.
He takes the time to respond to your posts, asks thoughtful and pointed questions, does not judge, and offers keen insight and suggestions to help everyone move forward.
All of these pieces come together to make this, far and away, the smartest weight management program I have ever tried.
Thanks, Dr. K!

I really think it is sustainable. I feel like I’m eating the way I used to eat,before life and responsibilities got in the way.
I really thought about this course for about 6 months before I signed up and had read one of your books,but it wasn’t working for me by myself. So, I think i was really ready to change!
I know the only reason I have had this success is because of the support of this forum and your comments that just make you “think” about stuff, which help you to work stuff out and change habits without feeling pressure.
EM, Transformation member*
Dr K provides useful strategies on his Transformation course and ,on the forum ,via the food diary ,he gently nurtures you towards gradual changes in eating habits.
During the past nine months I have lost over nineteen pounds,and in a way I find easy to sustain despite holidays and other events which formally would knock me off track.
I really recommend this approach which is not a diet,more a way of life.
You will surely make progress if you post your diary and then get the help and support. Its fantastic and I really mean that.
SW, Transformation member*
At long last after 30 years of yoyo dieting I can happily say I will never go on a diet again.
I have successfully lost 27 pounds by following Dr K’s behavioural approach,and I can honestly say I have found it totally pain free.
Dr K suggests ways to improve your eating habits, increase awareness of what you are eating,and deal with challenges.absolutely fantastic!!!!!!
This approach works like a dream, thanks dr k!!!
The bonus of posting a diary is that you get the guidance that Dr K offers, as well as the support from the group.
You just need to take that initial step to begin posting, no one is judging anyone on this forum.
I’ve converted my mom into a Dr K fan, so I have a strong ally, but I am also enjoying the role of mentor.
My mom has her own set of scales and diary ready to go too (have to add in the 2 weeks since she has been here she has dropped 3 kgs too. Does it work or does it work!!!!
GK, Transformation member*
I had despaired of EVER losing weight. Your method is working for me in a few ways;
I’ve lost weight (and kept it off) AND inches, I’m not constantly thinking about food and no food is banned.
In fact, for the first time in about 5 years, I’ve bought myself an Easter egg!
A lot of seasoned dieters will be throwing their hands up in horror at what I’ve just said but you don’t know until you’ve tried it.

I was uncomfortable and couldn’t sit easily at the theatre, on restaurant chairs or on planes.
I found it difficult to move easily from sitting to standing, and would avoid kneeling if at all possible.
I would often get out of breath if I was walking upstairs or uphill or for a prolonged period of time.
I was often self-conscious and felt embarrassed and ashamed of how I looked, so I hated having my photo taken.
I also used to notice looks of disgust from some people, or would simply be ignored.
I often had headaches, always felt really tired and often had an upset stomach.
Now, I feel really healthy and have plenty of energy.
I really enjoy exercise and how my body can move.
I love walking and can do 6-7 mile walks with no problem.
I don’t worry about what the seats are going to be like when I go somewhere and don’t mind having my photo taken.
I am enjoying wearing clothes that suit me, rather than things that just fit me.
I feel so much more self-confident and happy to try new things. Life really is a lot better!
I feel fantastic already and am really looking forward to how amazing I will feel when I get to my goal.
Also, I have learned how to handle business travel and holidays so that I can maintain my weight (and have even managed to lose weight while on holiday without any deprivation at all).
JD, Transformation member*
I was very pessimistic about losing weight and was actually claiming that I was happy being overweight and didn’t want to change.
I wanted to change, all right; what I didn’t want to do was diet again.
I actually weighed less when I was in my third trimester with my daughter than when she was five years old!
But I obviously was lying to myself and everyone else about not minding my size because even as I was making these outrageous statements, I was surfing the web for yet another quick weight loss fix.
Happily I didn’t find one–instead I stumbled upon Dr. K’s website and the mad cycles of yoyo dieting came to an abrupt halt.
There were so many factors working against my ever reaching my goal weight (so I thought): my exhausted metabalism, my age (48), the fact that everytime I had lost weight in the past I had gained more back afterwards and was then more than 50 lbs overweight.
Well, I turned 50 in January and reached my goal weight over a year ago.
I made a lifestyle change with Dr.K’s methods.
Just remember: NO DIET means NO DIET FATIGUE.
I can claim the following: I eat what I want.
Your program is a rare phenomenon: something which sounds too good to be true but is actually better than it sounds!”
JC, Transformation member, Lost 55 pounds*
Last night I was out at dinner and my friends said – you’re so skinny these days!
I do feel happy and pleased my weight loss/management and training are paying dividends at 56!
JL, Lost 22 pounds with Dr. K*
This course really makes sense to me. It seems so simple when it’s presented like this. (not that I’m doing everything right but even that is not seen as a failure and that helps to get me back on track.)
LB, Transformation member*
I am just coming from a background of years of buying books, dvds etc none of which worked.
I feel like I have wasted so much time and money finding out about losing weight and nutrition etc and none of it helped me really – until I found your approach.
I’m not missing any food in particular because nothing is banned.
MF, Lost 22 pounds with Dr. K*
I’m finally a *successful* graduate of the 20 week program!!
Before the program, I was hovering around 140-145; currently I hover closer to 130.
For the last 10 years, I never thought I’d see anything below 140, and 140 became my EEEK weight!
I feel strong, healthy, and fit for the first time in years.
SK, Transformation member*
“Losing weight was so hard to achieve until I met you, and then it was easy”
