Slim­ming World was founded in 1969 by Mar­garet Miles-bramwell, who re­mains the driv­ing force be­hind the com­pany to­day. Mar­garet had strug­gled with her own weight since child­hood and she un­der­stood that peo­ple who are over­weight carry a dou­ble bur­den - the phys­i­cal bur­den of ex­cess weight and the some­times far heav­ier bur­den of shame and self-crit­i­cism. At the heart of Slim­ming World are its mo­ti­vat­ing weekly groups, de­signed to em­power slim­mers to make changes for life. The con­sul­tants who run the groups have all been Slim­ming World mem­bers them­selves. They are trained in nu­tri­tion and be­hav­iour-change tech­niques at the Slim­ming World Academy.
