OMG when i first saw Boossh advertised , i thought here we go another VLCD on the market, hell I tried almost every one, over the last two years, Protein Diets, other vlcd products, but Boosh stood out from the rest, no gimmicks, no false reviews off people who had not done the diet. Where as Boossh was different it pulled me in off the website, nice and bright easy to maneuver around the site, real life reviews, and easy manageable goals, and I thought I am going to do this one last time, I got nothing to loose and everything to gain. So i took the leap of faith and purchased some off their products, and I haven't looked back since, I been on the diet 2 weeks and I have lost 1 stone, and I will tell you, if you have the right mindset, this diet is amazing, the food selection is brilliant. Don't worry if you have a sweet tooth, their is something for you, my favorite is the choc chip desert omg, it's amazing hot with some cheeky strawberry's in it, smiles.
Don't worry about the 2 liltres (4 pints) of water you have to drink, you just have to manage whats right for you, when you take it. I have one on the way to work, one before dinner one after dinner and one at home, it doesn't seem so bad then. Expect a lot of toilet trips, but the more you are weeing the more you know u are basically weeing the fat away lol.
The staff who work for Boossh are second to none, this even follows through to their facebook page, so quick at handling your questions.
Take a chance and change your life, I got 2 more weeks to go on mine, and i am hoping i get in my dress, then I going to enjoy Christmas, and start again in the New Year as I know now that this diet works!!!
I recently started Boossh after coming back from holiday. After looking through the photo's I realised I had rather large breasts (all well and good I hear you say?...I am male!) I had heard about Boossh through a friend and decided I had nothing to lose apart from my weight, and as my friend had done so well I got started!
In the first week I lost 1 stone and I was totally amazed!! - I felt fantastic and I could not believe the results and how quickly I felt the benefits of using Boossh. The amount of choice I had was immense, including soups, shakes, mousse, yoghurts, and even lots of very tasty hot meals so I could always sit down with my family in the evening and I never felt deprived or unsociable!
I now only have about another 7lb to lose after losing 2 1/2 stone and then once I am done I will get started on the Boossh maintenence plan to ensure I keep the weight off!
Thanks very much Boossh, you saved me from buying myself a bra!! ;)
I found Boossh via Groupon 4 months ago and I'm so pleased I did!
There are several negative reviews below referring to the Groupon offer, which in honestly was a bit of a mess, but Boossh did everything they could to resolve it and I can safely say, since then their customer service has been great, unlike Groupon who I have had several similar problems with, one at Mother's Day, one at Christmas, leaving me less than impressed! I now use Wowcher instead, as do Boossh coincidentally!
Anyway, back to Boossh, in the 17 weeks I have been Boosshing I have lost nearly 4 stone, which I know I could not have achieved with a conventional healthy eating plan.
Week 1 was hard, as with any diet, but since then I have found it relatively easy. Although, of course it does take willpower/dedication, but the fantastic results spur you on.
There are so many packs to choose from (meals, smoothies, milk shakes, deserts, breakfasts etc) there's something for everyone, you can even add skinny pasta to your packs, which is a great replacement for pasta/noodles/rice.
The website & Facebook pages are great, full of information, tips, recipes & support from both Team Boossh and other Boosshers, it's a real community (without the embarrassment of being weighed in front of each other lol.) There's also regular discount codes and competitions, which makes it fun and even more affordable.
I would recommend Boossh to anyone who want to make a real change to their weight and health (4 packs contain your full RDA and losing weight makes you feel great) or anyone who wants to lose weight fast for a special event... Give it a go, you won't be disappointed! x
I have recently started using Boossh after being recommended by a friend and I am so impressed! I was worried about doing this with being a man and I thought that it might not be the "cool" thing to do, I also thought I would fail within hours of starting. How surprised I was to find that not only was it really easy to stick to, the products taste lovely as well!! I have lost almost 2 stone now in the last few weeks and the other guys at work are even talking about starting on their own Boossh journey!
I find the support team very helpful too and they are always quick to respond to any queries I may have.
A great company all round, highly recommended by this happy fella!

I have been Boosshing for a few months now and I am amazed at the results!! I have lost over 6 stone and I couldn't be happier!! My confidence and my energy levels are soaring and I feel like a completely different person!!
Boossh are constantly adding new flavours and there is so much to choose from! I have never known a VLCD which gives you so much choice!!
The customer service I have received has always been excellent, my emails get answered very swiftly and the team are always on hand to help with anything I need, they are also there until 11pm at night which fits in so well with my life.
If you are wanting to lose weight and you are wanting a great range of products, a great brand, excellent prices and the friendliest customer service then I would definitely reccommend Boossh!!....I promise you won't look back!
Thank you so much Boossh x

A few months ago I saw this company on Groupon, I had never heard of them, but I placed an order anyway. After delays to the order which boossh blamed Groupon, and to which Groupon blamed Boossh, the order was going to be dispatched, then it wasn't then it was again, it was all very confusing and there was a total lack of communication, eventually Groupon refunded the costs, strangely after I asked them on their facebook page how they could possibly oversubscribe their product via Groupon they deleted my post and blocked me from posting (Don't like anything slightly negative on their page it would seem!)
Stupidly I decided to place another order with them directly, it was great I got my order the next day (then the day after I got my dispatch email even though it had already been delivered), However it was missing items (they wrote on the dispatch note they would be following the next day). That was 3 weeks ago. I have tried to contact them through support (no reply to support tickets after 10 days), Calls to them go on and off hold only to be told there is no one to help with the query.
I should have learned from the first order, but never again.
It's a shame as Boossh is a really great product but unfortunately the poor customer service is enough to put anybody off, and definitely has left a nasty taste in my mouth :P
As an update I have been home all week and there has been NO additional contact from Boossh or any delivery of my missing items (despite them stating they would contact me to resolve) as below. Have given now up and have contacted my credit card issuer who will be disputing on my behalf.
I first attempted to try Boossh a few months ago with groupon. However the request got denied as groupon had let too many people order it. But this was not Boossh's fault and they offered to give everyone, including myself money off thier first purchase, which I think is very generous. I decided not to however.
But, a couple of weeks ago I saw pretty much the same deal on wowcher. I thought I'd give it another go. I put my order in and waited...
I had waited 10 days, and because of my own stupidity, did not check that the order went through!... It had not. I emailed the helpline, explaining that I had ordered it and it hadn't arrived, and was there anything they could do to help me, and didn't expect to hear back any time soon... But I was very much mistaken! I was emailed back no more than 5 minutes later, and was told that if I redid my order they would send it out as soon as they could. I was very excited, considering once I had realised I'd made a mistake I thought I wouldn't get it in time for when I needed it.. (i had planned to do a 2 week crash diet before I went on holiday).
I resent the order, and crossed my fingers...
The very next day, I got an email saying that it would be delivered the day after that, which I was thrilled about, as that would of meant it had only taken two days to get to me.... However... When I got home that same day it had already been delivered and left with a neighbor!!
I am chuffed to bits, that even though I had made the mistake, they still helped me out, and made sure that it was rushed to me!
I am very grateful to their helpful services, and will definitely be ordering from them again... Now I just need to try the taste test!....
Review to follow on that... Watch this space!
Thanks again Boossh!
I initially tried Boossh after purchasing a Groupon deal. After being initially sceptical (having seen colleague try [external reference] and put it all back on), was pleasantly surprised. I have tried some mealpaks and found them not for me, but was able to replace the favours I didn't like easily enough.
Yes, the shakes can be a bit gritty, but at least the grit means they are nutritionally sound containing everything you need. Found it easy enough to change consistency with adapting water content.
My personal faves are the mint choc shake, chicken and veg pasta and choc chip pudding!
As other reviewers have noted, yes, the portion sizes are very small...but considering its a VLCD, not sure you'd expect much different!
Customer service has always been second to none for me.
There seem to be offers on voucher websites quite frequently for Boossh which is fantastic. For me, the full price packs seem quite expensive, but are comparable to similar products on the market. Problem can be solved by stocking up on vouchers when they come up!
I would recommend Boossh to others, and don't think I would try any other VLCD, owing to the choice available (epic compared to other company's offerings) and the fact flavours are quite nice.
Thanks Boossh for giving me weight loss boosts when I need them!
After an inital delay with a groupon order I can honestly say there have been no more issues with boossh.
The products are great, the customer service is excellent and I am losing weight - not sure what else you can ask for?!
Well this is the second VLCD I have tried and OMG 6 weeks in I'm still at it and not bored at all!! The choice in fantastic and the customer service excellent!! I have tried nearly all the products obv have my favs.. Love love love the strawberry (tastes like angel delight), mint choc, wild berry (feels like a proper smoothie with actual fruit bits in), cookie dough shakes. The hot meals are great luv the chicken and veg pasta and veg curry and veg korma (super flavoursome, a little disappointed with the tikka but hey there's so much to choose from) and then for those sweet days u have ur choc chip pudding which is just YUM!!
The loyalty point system is so good and the support you get on the website is great, being able to print off food lists makes sticking to the diet and keeping it off much easier..
All in all you can probably tell I really enjoy boossh and have just got another 5 week order!!
I was first introduced to Boossh with their Groupon offer. Unfortunately my voucher was one of the ones refunded by Groupon due to the overwhelming demand, but I have to say that Boossh customer service handled the matter extremely well and I have since ordered using the voucher code they gave me, and have placed a total of three orders with them so far. The delivery is always prompt (next working day via UPS).
Having never tried a VLCD before, I wasn't sure how I'd find it, but having spent 20 years of my life yoyo dieting, I felt that a total break from 'normal' food would do me the world of good in breaking all the bad habits I have formed over the years. The first couple of days were hard, but after week one on the 21 day kickstart plan I had lost 9lbs! Not only that, but the improvement in my skin and the general way I was feeling was amazing.
The products themselves are great, I have tried a variety of the shakes, soups, smoothies, and meals, and have not yet come across a flavour that I do not like (although I avoided ordering the varieties I thought I would be less keen on) The Vegetable Tikka mealpack bulked out with some skinny rice for tea is my absolute favourite. The snack bars are also amazing, and have helped me stick to the plan, as I really look forward to having these as a treat, and they taste so good you wouldn't even think they were a 'diet food'.
All in all I can see me and Boossh being good friends for a while. I still need to lose another stone and a half, and after that I can see Booshing on a 5:2 basis will be a good way for me to hopefully maintain my weight loss.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their product or customer service to anybody!!
I have been testing various products in this range. The raspberry yoghurt smoothie is absolutely superb and really 'breakfasty'. I found the chocolate, chocolate mint and frappucino disappointingly lacking in flavour. This was dealt with by adding a teaspoon of cocoa to the chocolate ones, and a teaspoon of coffee to the frappucino. I have now tried the lemon meringue - again WAY too subtle for me so I added some VLCD-friendly lemon water flavouring. However I don't know how I would have got on if the flavours weren't so easy to improve on without adding many calories - eg like strawberry or banana. Making them up in a shaker with 227 mls of fridge cold water and 4-5 large ice cubes gives a frothy and thick consistency as long as you shake really hard for at least a minute. I have actually found that the shaker for me gives a better result than a jug blender (add the ice afterwards), but maybe there's a knack with the blender I've not found yet. The shakes are a little 'gritty' made with a shaker because of the crystals of vitamin/mineral mix, but I have found that leaving them in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes, then re-shaking allows some of the crystals to dissolve. However I'd gone really OTT on the raspberry yoghurt shake on the second order - which was my large one - and phoned Boosh to ask about doing a swap, explaining that the first order was really a small test to see if I liked the products. They were really helpful and more than happy to have the overstocked raspberry smoothie returned with a note to say what I wanted in return. Like all VLCDs there are pluses and minuses with each one, so I order what I like from several. I do like the creaminess of frothiness of the Boossh shakes (made with a shaker) so these are staying on my order list. Delivery times are also pretty fast.
I heard about Boossh through Groupon and made an order. The offer was so popular that Groupon withdrew it as Boossh couldn't meet the 7 day postage that was included as part of the deal. My initial disappointment was soon gone when Boossh dealt with this issue quickly and offered a discount to help me get started without the Groupon offer. I also received a call from Boossh when fulfilling my order to apologise that a couple of items were out of stock and offering alternatives. I received my order more quickly than expected and was very impressed by this and the personal service I received. I can't wait to get started. I've worked in a complaints department of a large company for many years and am passionate about great customer service. I can't fault Boossh for the way they have dealt with an issue not of their making and recognise their excellent customer service. Would highly recommend!
after ordering a 2 week deal of boossh meal packs on groupon, I was severely dissapointed. It took over 2 weeks for my order to arrive, I had to constantly email them to find out what was going on, and any email i did recieve back made little to no sense, as if it was copy and pasted, and written by someone who barely knew any english.
I wanted a refund, but they wouldnt even answer that question but just kept telling me that it would be arriving soon. They did offer a 30% discount on my next purchase, but it seems that the discount keeps getting smaller-first 64% promised, now down to 30.
When my items finally arrived, there was no free shaker which was part of the deal. This annoyed me a great deal as obviously they couldnt get a single thing right! But honestly i cant be bothered to trouble myself and have to go through all of this again to get the shaker. I'll be testing the products to see how well they work before i even contemplate dealing with this company again.
From seeing these reviews regarding Boossh, I feel I must give my own opinion also.
I ordered my 4 week plan with boossh after 2 girls at work have lost large amounts on the diet. I was extremely confused when 1 girl (a newbie to the diet like myself) got her UPS number, another got an email stating there would be a delay with their order and the other girl got an email from groupon stating they would be refunded for their order.
I on the other hand received nothing. So, I called them on Friday eve and the polite lady said there was nothing she could do as she couldnt see orders but suggested I e-mailed them. So, that i did. I also messaged on facebook.
As my email had not been responsed to, nor had i received any emails regarding my order, I called again yesterday. The lady was so nice and helped answer my question as best she could but again could not see my order.
So, today, getting edgy, I emailed them stating the response time was shocking and i appreciate they are busy but to have no response to any of my messages i did believe was disgusting.
Saying that, they emailed within 10 minutes apologising for not just their mistakes but groupon also as they stated they had emailed me when in fact they hadn't. They told me the usual speel of sorry here are your codes etc that i thought was OK.
What changed my mind to give a second chance was that they continued to answer any queries i had, again in record times. Not only did they accept I was frustrated, but they promised to do everything they could to get my delivery to me this week. (I took them up on the offer of 2 week for 29).
Yes they could not handle the volume of orders, but where on earth would you find customer service that would give you not just 1 but 2 discount codes, free delivery, snack bars and shaker, as well as going above and beyond to make sure they rectify your first judgement of them.
I can't fault them for their hard work and i'm sure I'll be staying with them for the forseeable future.
TB, thank you for your help and support!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3
I work in a high end customer business and how this has all been handled is a complete joke. If we dealt with our customers this way we would be looking for a new job. As it stands Boossh I have not received my delivery money back for either of the the two orders I put in. I am still waiting on my money back from groupon so I can go and purchase a more reliable plan from a company that will supply. You comment on your discount on Facebook and the 30% offer, well if you can deliver them, WHY can't you deliver the orders all us disgruntled customers paid hard earned money for??? You are holding people's money for a product you cannot supply! I paid all my money on the 6th July and you gain interest from it! Where is my money Boossh and Groupon?? You would have had more credit in business to say to people your order is going to take a little longer due to volume from the Groupon deal. Instead you want to lose customers who will no longer come back to buy your product. I work with over 1000 people a day and they will hear how Boossh treat customers, a good example of why I work in a company who values customer service.

A friend to me about Boossh promotion on Groupon at the weekend that offered up to 61% off, so on Sunday I placed an order for the Six Week offer (£80) which I received and I placed my order on the Boossh website, the Groupon coupon didn't cover all the cost I had to pay an extra £4.99 to Boossh. Delivery was expected to take up to 7 days. Today Friday (5 days later) at noon I received an email from Groupon telling me that I may have experienced delays but the product will be with me by Thursday 18 July at the latest. At 4.40 today I received another email from Groupon telling me that the last email was a mistake and Boossh was now unable to fulfil my order. But as a good will gesture, Boossh have was now offering a 30% discount code to use before 30th Sept 2013. I don't know about the Boossh products but its discounts certainly get thinner I started with a 61% discount offer and now its 30%. I now need to try and get back my £4.99 ( No offer of a refund from Boossh yet) and make sure Groupon refund my £80 in the next 5 working days. I think i will place my business with an company that can deliver on it's promotions and I do hope Groupon will also seriously consider if it wants to continue promoting companies that fail to deliver.
Really keen to try but have been waiting 10 days for delivery now. No email of dispatch to track through UPS. Have left messages to find out more but no one has called yet.....
45 min later I receive 2 emails, 1 explaining the problems they have had, 2nd email with details of delivery....
Hope they are correct, looking forward to trying the products again now. Thank you.
Boossh products are so simple to make and they taste great. It works well for me whether at work or at home. It's so easy to stick to the diet because there is a huge variety of products. when I ave tried other meal replacement diets, I have got so bored that I have soon lapsed. That hasn't happened with Boossh. My consultant, Angela Hamilton, Solihull also gives me great advice and is only a phone call or email away.
I started the diet 2 weeks ago and I need to lose at least 3 stone. I have tried many diets and decided to give this one a go. The weight guru in West Midlands has been my rock. Any time I needed support or ask questions he was there for me. Some of the meals I didnt like but hey no one is perfect. I weighed myself for the first time last night and I have lost one stone!!!! yes one stone. I must admit I do not look any different (in my opinion) but I have found a tummy button which I lost some time ago. I would like to thank Mark for all his help and confidence he has given me. I trust him 100% and can tell him everything, how Im feeling etc. Things can only get better. Obviously Im not expecting a massive weight loss for the next two weeks - I am a realist, but lets see how it goes. Thanks
I purchased my first boossh via a deal site after feeling quite desperate that it was may and my "new year diet" had so far resulted in 2lb lost in 5 months!
I messaged them with my concerns that I'd bought a rival product package years ago that I tried things from and ended up binning the lot and they were really friendly and advised me what people feed back to them are their favourite products and what people often reorder most of so I gave it a go as I knew I needed to try something else and had a quick Google too! I made my husband try the first shake and snack bar before I'd even consider it and I was amazed! So far there is no product I've tried and don't like! I love the fact there is so much variety and that you can use the jelly to help rid any cravings or habitual need to eat! The meal packs don't look great when first pouring the water on and I was worried thinking it was just going to be a runny but after microwaving and leaving to stand it tastes lovely and looks like normal food!!
I've just finished my first week casual boosshing due to social things I had planned already and I've lost 4lb and placed another order as really enjoying it! I've also recommend to friends.
I ordered boossh from my local distributor angie Hamilton, she was really helpful in recommending flavours she had tried and thought I would like. I absolutely love the bars and the bolognese meal packs. This diet is literally the ONLY diet I have Ever stuck to and I have lost 21 pounds so far. I am planning on losing another half a stone and then I will be at my goal weight.
Thank you boossh for making dieting easy!
Since having my second child 3 years ago I have struggled with my weight. My sister told me about Boossh and introduced me to Mark Phillips (The Weight Guru) who is the distributer for West Midlands, it seemed to be working for her so I thought I would give it a try and it’s certainly the best decision I could have made. Boossh is such an easy plan to follow and the support and additional fitness advice that Mark has given me has been amazing. Its early days but I am certainly very pleased with the results so far, thank you Boossh and thank you Mark!
I am so happy I chose to give Boossh a try after being told about it by Sarah Carter. It is actually really easy to stick to because there is just so much choice! The customer service is excellent and my query was answered super fast and the results after my first week weigh in are 10lbs down and I am overjoyed!! Here's to week 2!! I would highly recommend Boossh to anyone serious about losing weight! x
I have been on the Cambridge diet twice now and saw an offer on Wowcher for Boossh. I thought I would give it a go as I did not have to go and visit a consultant if I did not want to.
I went on the three packs a day and made sure I drank 3 litres of water.
The mealpacks are really tasty but could do with more substance but I did add vegetables off the list which helped.
I also love the snack bars which are very tasty.
The first week I lost 8lb and the 2nd week I lost 5lb, the third week I lost 2lb which I expected plus I had a meal and some chocolate!
I am now on 2 packs a day with a healthy salad for my evening meal so I am a bit nervous how I will get on this week but I feel so much better for losing this weight.
I would recommend the mealpacks and snackbars as they are so much tastier than the one's you get on Cambridge, I would also recommend and have been Boossh as their website is so easy to use and my second order arrived within 48 hours.
Just need another offer from Wowcher or Groupon please.
I started Boosshing in March on recommendation of my friend Angela Hamilton, Solihull distributor. I only had a stone to lose and it came off really quickly and better still I have kept it off. I now maintain by having packs 2 days a week and eat normally for 5, It really is a great way to keep a steady weight. It's no hardship as the shakes taste really nice, berry buzz and frappucino are my favourites
I have tried most diets but have always seemed to struggle with loosing weight that is until I discovered Boossh through Mark Phillips (The Weight Guru). As well as introducing me to the Boossh plan Mark has also written me an exercise plan, in combining both I have lost a stone and a half in 6 weeks and could not be happier. For the first time in a long time I am feeling healthy and have lots more energy. There is lots of variety in the Boossh meal packs you can choose from and the shakes and chocolate bars are delicious as well as being affordable. Thank you to Mark for his continued support, advice and of course for introducing Boosshing to me!
I was introduced to Boossh by Sarah Carter and it was the best decision I could have made! The products are amazing, I am loving the new vanilla yoghurt, it's delicious!! The results are fantastic and I am so excited for my future with Boossh, thank you xx
I have tried lots of different diets in the past, in fact I have tried them all but Boossh offers something different altogether and it really works! Their product range beats any other diet hands down, it's affordable and the online tools make tracking your progress easy. Every order has been delivered within 2 days and any problems have been sorted very quickly. I love the loyalty points system too!
I am a bit of a yo yo dieter and have tried several different companies which specialise in weight loss products. I never had much luck with them and always thought it was me. It was only when i tried boossh and had results that I realised that it wasn't my fault.
Boossh not only has more flavours and varieties than any other company i've used but they actually taste good too. The fact that i can change my shakes to a mousse if. I want is so cool as it keeps it interesting.
Its a very cheap weigh of losing weight plus the delivery is speedy.
Also all the customer service i have had has been exceptional.
I highly highly recommend boossh and am never going anywhere else
Good stuff when you need it!
Have just received my first order of shakes from boossh .the order was delivered very quickly and i ordered a mixture of flavours all of which tasted lovely. i have ordered from other companinies but these tasted much better than any i have had before. will be ordering more for sure.
Hi , although I haven't received my products yet, I have been totally inspired by Sarah Carter who recommended me to your fantastic products. I have tried many VLCD's and although all work well initially , the product range limitations really make it difficult to continue for a long time without getting bored. Once bored of the products I found I would miss out on packs then get hungry and waiver. I am hoping with the choice of products and the continued support fro m Sarah that i will stay focused and lose the weight i so desperately wish to lose and to find 'me' again . Thank you so far for a great service ... Thanks to Sarah too for recommending Boossh to me - Karen :)
If it wasn't for Sarah Carter I would not have known of BOOSSH. The products are amazing are the best tfr I have ever been on. The jelly tastes great and is free which is unbelievable. The Boossh range of products is very hard to beat, I just love it. I have had rapid weight loss which keeps me very happy ;)
I have trawled the internet and tried a few VLCD diets in my time but I just need to say that so far BOOSSH have gone a long way in trying to help the majority of people. There's a good saying that you can't please every one all of the time but they are trying their hardest. Sarah Carter introduced me to this and I was pleasantly surprised at the web site, how it was laid out and the speed of ordering and delivery, I can't wait to start trying all their new flavours, this is going to be a breeze. Thank you Sarah Carter for helping me and steering me in the right direction. Keep up the good work Boossh. x x
