Scottish Daily Mail - - Exclusive Slimming World Recipes -

SLIM­MING World’s healthy eat­ing plan, Food Op­ti­mis­ing, is based on the science of sati­ety (feel­ing ‘full’) and en­ergy den­sity. This means eat­ing foods that are best for sat­is­fy­ing your ap­petite and have the fewest calo­ries per gram.

Food Op­ti­mis­ing helps you adopt a healthy eat­ing plan for life — with­out ever feel­ing de­prived or hun­gry.

It en­cour­ages slim­mers to fill up on ‘Free Food’, which you can eat with­out hav­ing to weigh, count or mea­sure ev­ery­thing. You can also en­joy mea­sured amounts of ‘Healthy Ex­tras’ and a few treats — re­ferred to as ‘Syns’ by Slim­ming World.

With Free Food, eat as much as you like of sat­is­fy­ing foods such as poul­try, fish, lean meat, eggs, pasta, grains and most veg­eta­bles and fruit.

Healthy Ex­tras help you to en­joy a bal­anced, sat­is­fy­ing diet. These in­clude foods such as milk, cheese, ce­re­als and whole­meal bread that pro­vide you with cal­cium, fi­bre and other im­por­tant nu­tri­ents.

And, so you never feel de­prived, you can en­joy lim­ited amounts of Syns, which are less fill­ing foods or drinks such as choco­late, crisps and al­co­hol.

Mak­ing small changes to how you shop, cook and eat can also help you to en­joy all your favourite meals while still see­ing your waist­line shrink.

For many of us who have tried to lose weight on our own, it can be easy to give up be­fore we’ve re­ally got started. There’s no more in­spir­ing place than a Slim­ming World group, to share sup­port and get prac­ti­cal ad­vice and strate­gies for over­com­ing weight­loss chal­lenges.
