AND THIS IS HOW IT WORKS . . .
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.
