Yep, I have also tried Sureslim ( one among many programs I have tried). Wasn't impressed. I went to an information night and signed up on the spot for the 20% discount, from $1000 down to $800. Once I was signed up and locked in, I do not think I have met more unhelpful people. The plan was very restrictive which did not help. I persevered for a few weeks but gave up. I really do think the program will work for some people who can deal with all the restrictions. The problem that I found was once I was signed up, the consultants had absolutely no interest in answering any questions and booking an appointment for the follow up weigh ins became farcical with the amount of times they were "booked out" etc and I felt that I was more of an impediment than a customer ( having worked most of my life in customer service, they had none!), if that makes sense at all. But this was the North Ringwood Branch and I'm not too sure if they are still operating out of there. It certainly left a real bitter taste in my mouth.
