Slimming World has changed my life. This is such a bold statement to make, but it’s the truth. It has taught me so much about food, slimming world is not a diet it’s healthy lifestyle. I’ve had so many email’s asking me to explain the basic’s of slimming world, I hope this will help. For obvious reason’s I am unable to go into explicit detail as I’m sure I will be beaching copyright or something! However if you have any question’s leave below or email me.
So if Slimming World isn’t a diet, what is it? and what can you eat? Slimming World is about changing your lifestyle to a healthy one. You can eat everything, nothing is restricted and you can also eat as much as you want with some food’s and still lose weight- this is why so many people find it so hard to understand. Do you know how many comments I get saying you can’t eat that! that isn’t diet food!!! It annoy’s the hell out of me. When I explain Im following slimming world and not a diet they just state they don’t understand it. I must admit I was one of these people too. When you join Slimming World you follow a plan called EXTRA EASY – I will summarise the plan, however this is a summary as there are no food’s off limit. Food is put into three group’s, Free food’s Healthy Extra’s and Syn’s. The majority of your food during the day will come from the free food’s, the free food group is massive! and it’s eat as much as you like – until your full.
Free Food’s is then split into two group’, these are free and speed free (speed weight lost).
