HOW IT WORKS
1 Follow the menu on these pages – it’s Extra Easy! You can start on any day you choose, swap days around if there’s a meal you really fancy, or repeat days if there’s something you particularly enjoy. You’ll find more ideas at slimmingworld.co.uk or when you join your local Slimming World group or sign up to Slimming World Online. 2 Foods printed in bold are ‘Free Food’, which you can enjoy freely to satisfy your appetite without needing to weigh, measure or count at all. Base your meals around Free Food, such as lean meat, fish, meat substitutes (including plain tofu,
Quorn and seitan), pasta, rice, potatoes, eggs, pulses, fat-free dairy, fruit, vegetables and more. If you feel hungry between meals, snack on these foods. For the very best weight loss, reach for fresh fruit or vegetables first. 3 As well as Free Food, stock your store cupboard with fat-free dressings, herbs, low-calorie cooking spray (one calorie per spray or less), oil-free tomato purée, seasoning, soy sauce, spices and stock cubes, which can be used freely to flavour meals. 4 To help support an overall healthy balanced diet, Slimming World encourages you to enjoy measured amounts of foods that provide calcium, such as milk and cheese (two portions per day), and those providing fibre, other essential minerals and healthy oils, such as wholemeal bread, high-fibre cereals, crispbreads, nuts and seeds (one portion per day). These can be enjoyed as part of your meals and, where we’ve included them as such in this plan, we’ve given specific measurements. Alternatively, you may choose to use them in hot drinks, or on their own as a snack. Where you’re enjoying them separately in this plan:
Choose 350ml skimmed l milk, 250ml semi-skimmed milk or 400ml plain and unsweetened soya milk with added calcium, or you can opt for 30g full-fat hard cheese or 40g reduced-fat hard cheese.
Boost your fibre intake by l enjoying two slices of wholemeal bread (from a small 400g loaf), a 60g wholemeal roll or pitta, 60g brown, high-fibre white or multi-seed, gluten-free bread/ roll, 40g plain porridge oats or 45g bran flakes. 5 Treat yourself. Enjoy up to two treats from the list provided every day.
