Before I go in to the history of Chooz to Looz... If you would just like to find out how our 3 Chooz to Looz Weight Loss Options ( Individual, Group & SlimSmart JumpStart ) work, then please scroll to the end of this page to "How it works".
The seeds of chooz to looz were sown when I (Caron Milham) was a young Dietitian. I had always struggled with managing my own weight and right from the beginning I was highly motivated to help others manage theirs, so I chose to specialise in Weight Loss and Management; Disordered, Binge and Emotional Eating and Eating Disorders.
After seeing more than 5,000 clients over 10 years, I realised that a lot of people, by the time they had consulted with me, they had spend several years of their life in the process of the ‘yo-yo’ syndrome, having tried meal replacement powders or meals, mass weight loss centres, weekly weigh-in meetings, appetite suppressants, self imposed starvation diets or the latest fad diet. They were often very unhappy, had a low self-esteem and often ended up bigger than when they first started dieting.
I developed the chooz to looz program for people who have ‘been there and done that’, felt that they are the ones that have failed, when in fact it is probably their diets that had failed them.
Chooz to looz has been available now for 28 years and has been updated, expanded and improved. It has diversified and evolved over the years to become what it is today.
From its humble beginnings as an Inpatient Weight Loss Program at a Private Hospital, chooz to looz developed and diversified to offer a Group Program and an Individual Program via consultation from our Clinic or by Video Consultation, online. Please read on below to find out more about what we are now offering, how chooz to looz may be able to help you and how it works.
Firstly, our mission is permanent weight control. To help people stop, once and for all, the all too common “yo-yo” like syndrome (ie: repeated weight loss and weight gain) year in, year out.
Our programs not only focus on the mechanics of weight loss, such as diet and exercise, but we work with our clients on the psychological reasons behind positive and negative eating habits and health management.
Our philosophy is not about helping you lose weight quickly, just to have you put it back on when you finish the program. Our programs will teach you how to develop a healthy lifestyle and provide you with the support you need to manage and maintain your ideal weight, permanently.
Secondly, chooz to looz is effective and safe, as the program has been developed by a qualified, experienced Dietitian and offers up to date, professional knowledge.
Thirdly, chooz to looz can be tailored, to suit the individual, to ensure results and personalised care and that the program is easy to follow and convenient. We achieve this by the fact that everybody can personalise their menu plans to suit their needs, hunger levels, lifestyle, tastebuds, eating habits and usual meal routine.
The Chooz to Looz program is available as individual consultations at our clinic or ONLINE, with our NEW, UPDATED and IMPROVED CHOOZ TO LOOZ Group Program or our SlimSmart JumpStart Online Plan and MiniCourse.
SlimSmart JumpStart is based on the very successful Chooz to Looz weight loss program and is an optional part of the Chooz to Looz Program.
SlimSmart JumpStart can help you get started with losing weight in a balanced and enjoyable way. It is ideal for people who like to be given a structured, nutritionally balanced plan that has been all worked out for them, day by day.

I have lost 26kg in 10 months on the Chooz to Looz program. One of the most valuable tools for me has been the ‘Australian Healthy Shopping Guide', as I have been able to keep control of what I was eating and have the ability to choose healthy foods.
I have lost 15kg in 14 weeks on the Chooz to Looz program. The Australian Healthy Shopping Guide gave me a lot of information to help me to do my shopping and with choosing my foods. It gave me variety so I felt like I was never on a diet. I could plan my menus for the complete week. If choosing the correct food from the Australian Healthy Shopping Guide you will never go hungry.
I have just achieved my goal weight and lost 10kg on the Chooz to Looz program. The book The Australian Healthy Shopping Guide has helped me to make better food choices. I love my food and with this book I can still do this knowing I have made the right choices. With this book I can repeatedly use it as a reference when needed. It is an essential part of my weight loss and ongoing weight maintenance and I wouldn’t be without it now.
I have lost 45kg in 12 months on the Chooz to Looz program. I have found all of Caron Milham's literature helpful, especially the Australian Healthy Shopping Guide book. This book confirmed I was buying the right products and helped me buy different items that I was never sure about. My energy level is much higher, to a level I cannot remember it being before. I am now able to buy clothes 'off the rack', which I haven’t been able to do in 30 years. My blood pressure, blood cholesterol and blood glucose levels have dropped and no longer am I called ‘Borderline Diabetic’.
I have lost 24kg on the Chooz to Looz program. I found the ‘Australian Healthy Shopping Guide’ book invaluable in giving myself variety in my food types and keeping true to exchanges. The Guide informed me of many labeling ‘traps’ and put me on the right track to making the right choices. I am a lot more relaxed now in food shopping, as the stress I used to feel is replaced by a confident attitude.
I have lost 20.5kg on the Chooz to Looz program and haven't felt this good in 15 years. The 'Australian Healthy Shopping Guide' has helped me very much with my weight loss and with 'shopping smarter'. I had no idea that what I was eating was that bad.
