Take the Easyway to be free

Allen Carr was a chain-smoker who used to smoke 100 cigarettes a day until, after many failed attempts, he managed to quit in 1983. It was during this period that he developed his uniquely successful method. He realised that he had discovered what all smokers dream of; an easy way to get free!

The six-hour seminar that he developed was first launched in his home in London, England, and now it is available in cities across the UK, and in over 50 countries worldwide. From the USA to Ukraine, from Austria to Australia, from Mexico to Mauritius. The worldwide Head Office remains in London, England.

The beauty of Allen Carr’s Easyway method is that it can be applied to any addiction or issue and Allen Carr and his team undertook to apply the method to as many other problems as possible; issues such as alcohol, weight, drugs, gambling, debt, and fear of flying.

It is estimated that over 30 million people have successfully changed their lives with the method.

 

Can I still socialise / enjoy life / dine out with my friends when I use the method?

Absolutely. When you leave a seminar you will change your relationship with sugar and food and be able to join your friends and eat your new found favourite foods without being tempted by what they have.

We know that’s hard to believe – but take our word for it you’ll be happy and won’t be tempted. Even better – you won’t turn into one of those awful ‘reformed junk eaters’ – someone who diets and subsequently hassles and harangues their friends to join them in the latest dieting fad. Your friends, colleagues, and family will be amazed at how easily you’ll cope with life and you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything.

Which program is best for me: an on-demand video, a seminar, or a book/app?

The seminar is the original and most successful way of using Allen Carr’s Easyway method. The one-off 5 hour seminar is all it takes for most people to change the food they eat and adopt a new healthier lifestyle forever.

There are no points to count or difficult recipes to follow as part of our sugar and weight loss seminars. There are no prescribed meal plans to stick to – just a 5 hour seminar that can inspire you to change your relationship with food and enable you to really ENJOY a healthier way of eating.

You can take this program in a private 1-2-1 seminar at one of our centers, a private 1-2-1 seminar at your home or a private online 1-2-1 seminar via a video link.

Our on-demand service allows you to lose weight and quit sugar when want and where you want. It is a complete lose weight and quit sugar program via a video on-demand service. Once you start viewing you will have unlimited access to all parts for 30 days. It is not a seminar, neither is it a recording of one, but a standalone program in its own right. Unlike our center seminars you will not be able to speak directly with an Allen Carr’s Easyway facilitator.

The book, audiobooks and apps allow you to go through the method at your own pace.

The seminars are by far the most effective way of accessing Allen Carr’s Easyway method.

How successful is Allen Carr’s Easyway method?

Although there is no money back guarantee for the weight control program – it’s simply not possible to establish a way of managing that e.g. how much weight someone might want to lose over what period of time. But Allen Carr’s Easyway has a 90% success rate* based on their unique full money back guarantee for Smoking, Drugs and Alcohol which demonstrates the effectiveness of the method. Independent studies confirm that even after 12 months the quit smoking success rate remains over 51% and 53% after 3 years. (NHS quit smoking has a 2.5% success rate after 12 months per Cancer Research Study 2013).

How does the Allen Carr’s Easyway method work?

The method will prompt you to question the things that society has taught you about sugar, food and eating. Key principles will be suggested which if you apply them, will lead to being free from sugar, increased vitality, and dramatic improvements in your general health and fitness without you feeling deprived.

I am a strong-willed person in all other areas of my life but when it comes to quitting sugar, I am useless. Why?

It is a common misconception that that it takes willpower to be free from sugar, and that belief alone can make it difficult. But does it really take willpower, or is it a correction of perspective that is really needed?

You only need willpower not to do something that you actually want to do. If you don’t want to do something, it doesn’t take willpower not to do it. The difficulty that many experience is because even though they want to quit sugar, they still want to keep eating the kind of food that makes that hard. They want to keep eating it because they believe that it gives them some kind of pleasure or crutch.

Allen Carr’s Easyway shows you how to correct your perspective with respect to not only over-eating but the type of food that you enjoy in a way that leaves you with no desire to keep eating junk food whatsoever. And with no desire to keep eating junk, it doesn’t take willpower to not eat it. Join the millions who have changed their lives using this simple approach.

What if the program I choose doesn’t work?

The success rate for our quit smoking, quit drinking and quit taking drugs seminar are staggeringly high, over 90% based on our 3 month money back guarantee and independent scientific studies published in peer review journals indicate that even after 12 months the success rate of the quit smoking method remains over 50%. This clearly cannot be applied to weight loss but it shows the strength of the method.

We offer telephone and written support after the seminar for the few that require it. The seminars are effective whether you have previously used any other Allen Carr’s Easyway products or not.

Why should I choose a seminar?

The seminar is the original and most successful Allen Carr’s Easyway program.

Millions of people have changed their lives by using Allen Carr’s Easyway and the centers continue to be the most powerful and effective way of receiving the method.

The center seminars are effective whether you have read any of Allen Carr’s books or used any other Allen Carr’s Easyway products in the past or not. Even if the method didn’t quite gel for you previously the seminars will work for you.

You can ask questions throughout the live seminar and you’ll get a real, live, straight answer from someone who has themselves used Allen Carr’s Easyway method to control and manage their weight and has received comprehensive training to become a qualified Allen Carr’s Easyway Senior Facilitator.

You’ll be shown a strategy to help you break through your fears and easily deal with anything that may previously have led to temptation. This is done using powerful psychology aimed at the conscious mind, reinforced at the end of the seminar by light relaxation.

You get to share your experience (if you wish) with those of other participants; often realising you are not the only one with your particular fears and worries.

Although you will be given everything you need in one seminar to control your weight, if you should need support after you leave us, free telephone support and written support is available

What happens during a seminar?

The seminar lasts around five hours, during which the facilitator will help you to understand exactly what you do and why you do it. You may be surprised by much of what you hear!

The method will prompt you to question the things that society has taught you about sugar, food and eating. Key principles will be suggested which if you apply them, will lead to weight loss, increased vitality, and dramatic improvements in your general health and fitness without you feeling deprived.

The seminar will be held by one of our Senior Facilitators all of whom quit due to Allen Carr’s Easyway and applied to join the team. They have all trained extensively before being deemed ready to start conducting seminars as a qualified Allen Carr’s Easyway Facilitator.

How much does a seminar cost?

How much would you be willing to pay if you could control your weight and never need to go on another diet saving you £’000s a year?

Do you use Light relaxation?

At the end of the seminar there is a short period of light relaxation designed to reinforce what you have learned during the main part of the seminar and remove any remaining doubts that you may have. This is a period of light relaxation and is not deep hypnosis – you are never “put under” or put into a trance. It’s always a pleasant, relaxing, enjoyable experience.

Should I attend a seminar if I’ve tried to quit with the method already?

The seminars are effective whether you have tried to use the method with or without success in the past. Even if you failed previously the center seminar will work for you.

The centers continue to be the most powerful and effective way of receiving Allen Carr’s Easyway method.

I have read the book and it was easy to conbe free from sugar. Yet at some point I started eating badly again. I’ve read the book again, but it doesn’t seem to have the same effect. Is it worth coming?

YES. The good news is that the method did work for you. The bad news is that at some point you got overconfident or casual about eating – particularly about eating addictive foods. It can be hard for the book to work its ‘magic’ a second time. The seminar will set you free – and more importantly – keep you free and help you manage your weight long term this time.

The seminar can help because you can ask questions as they come to mind. And you’ll get a real, live, straight answer from someone who has themselves used Allen Carr’s Easyway method and has received comprehensive training to become a qualified Allen Carr’s Easyway Senior Facilitator.

You’ll be shown a strategy to help you break through your fears and easily deal with anything that may previously have led to temptation. This is done using powerful psychology aimed at the conscious mind, reinforced at the end of the seminar by light relaxation.
