What is Weigh-less Mauritius

Mary founded Weigh-Less in 1975, envisioning all the values and support that she wanted to receive as an overweight person. Weigh-Less was to incorporate all the tools and support that she needed to assist her in losing weight.

Mary wanted a live-able, do-able and afford-able Eating Plan that would be founded on sound nutritional principles.

With Weigh-Less, she knew that whatever weight she lost, it would be done in a healthy and sustainable way. The vision was to create an environment where Members could come and feel secure and supported on their journey to Goal Weight.

The idea would be to have Groups, led by former overweight people who had empathy and could support the members individually.

These are the foundations that Weigh-Less was built on – the Weigh-Less trilogy – the Group experience, the Group Leader and the Weight Management Programme, with the Member in the middle. Once you join Weigh-Less, your challenge becomes our challenge, and your success, our success!

Our mission at Weigh-Less is for every member to attain and maintain Target Weight the healthy way. Once you walk through our doors, your challenge is our challenge. Your body is our business and we care. Don’t ever give up on your dream – your journey starts here today.
