A reliable product

A reliable, highly professional service. The product is great for me, and I have effortlessly lost nearly 10% of my body weight. I am so thrilled. I needed help changing some data I’d put in incorrectly and this was done for me no problem. The delivery is very fast and clearly communicated too. Brilliant game changer!

I’m on month 3 using Habitual, great customer service

I’m on month 3 using Habitual and so far I’ve had great customer service & delivery. Any questions I’ve had get a quick reply from the team. I’m going on holidays and they quickly advised me how to easily push forward my next delivery. As far as the product, it is what it is but it’s Habitual’s service that makes this special. They’ve also just launched an amazing app with lots of support, tracking and articles on top of a WhatsApp group to keep up with peers.

Fantastic company with a really quick…

Fantastic company with a really quick turn around on orders and you can trust you are getting genuine products. The app is really insightful, doesn't just give you tips on healthy eating habits but other important things like sleep and exercise. I would recommend this company to anyone wishing to lose weight within a relatively short period of time and to enjoy the support they provide. 10 out of 10

Don’t go anywhere else!

I tried other providers before finding Habitual and I really wish I’d gone to them first. Best prices. First-class response. Outstanding customer care. Been telling everyone who’ll listen to use Habitual. Thank you Habitual!
Jenny Watkins

Wish I'd started sooner!!

The app is very insightful, and I love how easy it is to use and track. It offers weekly lessons and really gets into detail about how everything works, how things effect your body and how to set yourself up for success. There's also a really cool recipe section too! I don't use it, but there's WhatsApp support as well, which I imagine some people find very helpful. At the cost, I'll admit I was a little hesitant, but now I only wish I'd started sooner. I'm really excited for the future, only a week in but already I feel so much better. If you're considering it, give it a go!

Just over 9lbs lost in 3 weeks so far

So far I have completed 3 weeks of the programme (with the occasional small slip up but nothing major) and I have lost 4.8% of my body weight already!

I am doing amazing on this programme

I have lost 3.7% of my weight so far and i am just finished my second week. The company is amazing and the programme is easy to follow.

Habitual are an amazing company

They've seriously helped me get my weight under control for the first time in my life. I've lost over 50lbs in 4.5 months, I haven't felt hungry during that process and I have been fully supported by Habitual and the community. All I can say to Habitual is thank you, thank you, thank you. I feel great, I feel confident that I can carry on losing weight and I believe that I will be able to keep it off.

Amazing Program, Amazing Team

This program takes care of the whole you, the whole way. From effective (& safe) weight loss products to advice on how to change your habits, it’s a refreshing twist on traditional diet programs. Plus, the team behind it is amazing, brilliant, and fun!

Superb program - I lost over 20kg that will stay off thanks to the combination of food advice, mental health support and physical exercise tips. I was 97kg in January and it's now October and I'm down to 75kg - so 3.5 stone loss / 22kg. I would highly recommend Habitual ...

The before and after is remarkable

Before Habitual, I was obese, didn't feel great in my skin and didn't have a great relationship with food. Now, 19kg later, I'm not obese, and with the help of their team my relationship with food is improving. The first 2 weeks are really hard, but if you stick to it, by week 12 you'll look back and think how ...

Habitual - an organisation with heart..
