A SLIMMING World group is appealing for new consultants to help members shed the pounds.

The Braintree team says it has already helped more than 800 people since the start of the new year and is now in need of extra consultants due to growing demands.

The group is especially keen for former Slimming World members who have lost weight to join the team and share their experience of losing weight.

Leader Carley Day said: “We have the best understanding of the psychology of slimming and we choose consultants for their empathy, warmth and understanding.

“Every consultant who comes on board goes through an in-depth training programme and is awarded diplomas in nutrition and the psychology of weight management.”
