Weekender Programme


The Weekender Programme is ideal for those who love to enjoy socialising at weekends, and still want to stay firmly on track to achieving their weight loss goals. Weekends are for having fun and letting your hair down, and losing weight doesn’t have to get in the way of that!

Treats at weekend

Everyone loves treats so we use a special calculation to safely lower your calories during the week to allow you to have lots of treats at weekends. Perfect for those who like to enjoy a meal out, a take away or drinks with friends.

cake and eat it

You enjoy fantastically filling foods on week days, dine out at your favourite restaurants with drinks and cocktails at the weekends AND hit your weight loss goals. You are literally having your cake and eating it!

active social life

You will absolutely lose weight without compromising your social life, and because of this you will stick to the plan long term, and experience the success that you have been craving for so long. This isn’t a short-term fix, this is going to see you achieve your ultimate goals.

complete control

Weekender gives you complete control over your weight loss whilst still enjoying life. You will understand how to lose weight, then keep it off forever, without becoming a diet bore and most importantly without sacrificing quality time with family and friends.

Successful for good

I’ve genuinely not come across a programme that is so successful at helping individuals turn their lives around for good.

Be Strong provides an evidence-based programme that moves away from the “quick fix” mentality and dependency that is unfortunately promoted by many commercial weight loss programmes. 

I would love to see more approaches like this rolled out across the UK.

Been on the journey themselves

Be Strong has been life changing for me and many others. My whole mindset has changed.

Rick and Rachel are inspirational people, who know first hand what their members are going through as they have been on the journey themselves.

I recommend them to everyone I meet, I cannot praise them enough.




Learn what your calorie targets are for weekdays and weekends. You will be set a calorie allowance for each day, which you should stick to, to get the best results. Then check out your ADDITIONAL calories to be used on the weekend or your chosen treat day. You will be amazed at how much extra food and drink you can enjoy on your treat day… and still lose weight!



Plan your meals and snacks to fit in with your daily calorie targets. It helps to plan ahead so that you can shop according to your plan, ensuring you have the right foods in the cupboards and the best chance of success. If you need a little inspiration, search our recipe database and meal ideas or ask our vibrant, positive and motivational Be Strong community for ideas.



Track your food and drink in your ‘Meal Tracker’, to ensure you stay on top of your calories, making sure that you can enjoy those weekend treats AND still hit your weight loss goals. Experience an increase in self-confidence and believe that you can actually do this!



Track your progress in your ‘Weight Tracker’, and feel your confidence and motivation increase week on week. Share your success with and get support from the Be Strong Community in the Flatten the Curve Platform and our Facebook group.

100% Control

I have lost 10 stones and kept it off using Be Strong’s Weekender program. And, best of all I didn’t miss a Saturday night out. Be Strong has absolutely changed my life, and I will never go back to the way I was – the girl who started a new diet every Monday – because now I 100% understand how to control my weight, rather than food and my weight controlling me.

So Simple

I’d gradually put on weight and I had been feeling overwhelmed and anxious about starting a ‘weight loss journey’, thinking it would involve extreme dieting and hours in the gym.

This is not the case!! It is so simple, I don’t feel like I’m dieting and I have learnt so much about living a balanced lifestyle. 

I lost 9lbs in four weeks and I am feeling as motivated now as I was on day 1! Be Strong is fantastic. Thank you so much for what you do!

Permanent Change

I joined Be Strong having initially lost some weight myself. 

However, I was stuck in a rut of either comfort eating or starving myself. It wasn’t until I joined Be Strong I found there is an easy, and simple, method of losing weight in a healthy way, and detracting from the word “diet”. Rick and Rachel are great at giving advice with a personal touch.

This for me is a permanent lifestyle change and has not only empowered me to view food in a different way but increased my confidence and well-being. Thank you!

Not sure if Weekender is right for you?

Weekender is NOT for everyone, and truth be told we’d prefer to help you figure out if it’s not right for you NOW, rather than waste your time. So, let’s cut to the chase…

Who Weekender IS for

  • SocialitesYou’ve tried to lose weight and lead a healthy lifestyle in the past, but your social life is important to you, and constantly gets in the way of being successful.
  • Receptive peopleThose who have tried to lose weight and lead a healthy lifestyle before, but haven’t yet succeeded.
  • InvestorsYou understand that lifelong lifestyle transformation takes place gradually, over the remainder of your life. You’re not in a rush anymore and have stopped following the fads. 
  • Action takersYou aren’t just going to watch a few films, read all of our programmes and never implement them. Weekender provides the tools, learning and resources – but you still need to do the work!

Who Weekender is NOT for

  • IdealistsYou think you can stretch the programme boundaries and carry on more or less as normal. You will have to realise that with any reward, there’s usually some form of sacrifice.
  • Miracle huntersPeople looking for a lose weight quick solution – if you think Weekender is going to make you lighter overnight, it’s not the right choice for you!
  • Idea chasersIf you’re constantly chasing the next idea and never getting anything off the ground, this isn’t a fit for you. Weekender takes commitment and focus
  • Shortcut takersAnyone looking for a miracle solution or not willing to dedicate time to the Weekender programme. New lifestyles take time and effort to develop and manage.


If you are a social butterfly, who likes to eat out and enjoy a few drinks with friends (let’s face it who doesn’t?) then ‘Weekender’ is absolutely the plan or you. ‘Weekender’ allows you to enjoy your favourite things, whilst still losing weight. The fantastic tools, resources and support that you receive as part of your membership, will guarantee that you hit your weight loss goals, and then understand how to keep your weight under control forever.
