You’ve probably been asked this dozens of times, maybe even hundreds.
It can land like a knife to the heart when you're already a fragile serial dieter. Skating on thin ice, unsure how many more hits you can take before you give up completely.
Struggling for time, willpower and motivation to stick to anything.
What’s that dreaded question?
How’s the diet going?
"If you are considering joining The Ditch the Diet Academy when it opens then just do it – don’t even hesitate. It’s so great to feel in control of your whole life again. There is nothing to be scared of. I never want it to end, it’s just a great place to be!"
"The number on the scales, and measurements don’t really matter to me anymore. My body and mind is relaxed. My mindset has completely changed I’m feeling a lot more confident in myself. To me, that is the best gift anyone could have given me."
"My name is Maggie and I have quit dieting for good! If you feel in a rut then enrol with Ditch the Diet Academy - you have nothing to lose but everything to gain! You also gain bloody fantastic new friends who will support you - as we are all in it together!"
The Academy includes three of our most successful programs, which includes:
Your journey starts here. Learn how to change the way you think about dieting so that you can open your mind to your new diet-free life. The Diet Declutter takes one week and prepares you to leave the old beliefs of points, syns and daily weighing behind.
Next, learn as Rachael walks you step-by-step through her signature online program - Transform21. Transforming thousands of lives over the past 4 years, T21 will open up a whole new outlook on food and exercise for you. Includes sample meal plans, shopping lists and video coaching.
You've done the ground work, now it's time to immerse yourself in your new lifestyle with The Ditch the Diet Academy course. This 20 week course includes detailed education on how other factors impact your weight loss journey. Like your environment, your mindset, your hormones and even your sleep! Get fierce accountability from Rachael and your community as you find what works for YOU.
"I was a skinny child and it wasn’t until I hit my thirties that I suddenly started putting on weight. Before I discovered The Ditch the Diet Academy, I did my own diet plan – which was basically starvation, and of course, that didn’t work.
“I tried Herbalife and I cringe when I think back to that, I also bought tablets that were supposed to ‘grab the fat out of you’. They cost me a fortune and also didn’t work.”
Then, I joined a ‘clean eating’ group and actually, I did lose a lot of weight, but it was so restrictive and I hated every moment of it. I couldn’t wait for those days to be over. Then, when it was over I went back to normal, I put the pounds that I had lost back on again and was back to feeling ‘doughy’.
Then, I joined The Ditch the Diet Academy and I have never regretted it for a moment.

Glasgow-born Scottish Nutritionist Rachael Watson has made it her mission to shut down the slimming industry and serve up the truth about weight loss. Rachael has lived and worked in Glasgow, Manchester, London and Sydney and is about to enter her first year Dietetics training at Glasgow Caledonian University.
Rachael says: "Our self-worth is battered every single day by the diet industry when they tell you that you’re not good enough. In actual fact, you are good enough you just have to have the right tools, experience and education to know how simple it is to stop this vicious circle.
It is my mission to show you the exact steps to take to leave your 'on plan-off plan' yo-yo dieting lifestyle behind - so I created The Ditch the Diet Academy to help you do just that".
BEFORE I JOINED THE ACADEMY I WAS NOT IN A GOOD PLACE AT ALL. I WAS REALLY MISERABLE IN MYSELF.
"Now? The number on the scales, and measurements don’t really matter. My body and mind is relaxed and that is the greatest thing I could ever have achieved. My mindset has completely changed I’m feeling a lot more confident in myself. To me, that is the best gift anyone could have given me."

I DOUBTED MYSELF, I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER SUSTAIN MY RESULTS
"See this as an investment in yourself and your future. If you are prepared to put the hard work in, it will reap the rewards, you will get there and you will see the results - I have. I have lost two stones since May 2018"
Marion Grindlay (DTD Academy Member)
I HAD TRIED SLIMMING WORLD ON AND OFF A MILLION TIMES!
"I feel less anxious, so much more positive and I don’t feel guilty! I have learned balance and moderation. I don’t feel guilty for having a chocolate or a glass of wine on a Saturday night.
I’ve lost about 2 stone so far this year."
