He is co-Founder and Research Director of MEND, the largest international provider of family-based weight management services. Meanwhile, at Slimming World, Paul brings his experience of adapting and evaluating weight management programs for other countries to his role as Chief Research and Development Officer. Here, he focuses on translating Slimming World’s hugely successful U.K. and Ireland program for U.S. members. In addition, he spearheads the development and evaluation of Slimming World’s digital health and research strategy in the U.S..

He is registered with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the U.K. Health Professions Council, and is a member of the British Dietetic Association, the Canadian Obesity Network and the U.S. Obesity Society.

Paul says: “Eating to satisfy your appetite by choosing the most filling foods with the lowest calories is the best way to lose weight for long-term results. Eating foods that are low in energy density and high in satiety eliminates the need to weigh and measure portions, which makes the program so much easier to sustain and succeed with in the long term. Slimming World is adaptable to fit any lifestyle so all members can feel empowered to lose weight on their terms. The online program is convenient and easy to use, providing members with the skills and knowledge to live a healthy lifestyle, for life.”
