For those that love their food like me, and DO NOT follow the Slimming World Plan, it really is a great plan to follow. Its not a diet its a new different way of eating. the plan has changed slighlty, and its no longer based on red and green days. Slimming World focuses on what they call FREE and SUPERFREE FOODS, food that you can eat at any time :
- Fish and Seafood
- Lean meat and poultry
- Fat Free Dairy Products
- Potatoes, Pulses and Starchy Vegetables
- Rice, Pasta and Grains
- Vegetable Proteins such as Quark and Tofu
- Fruit (SUPERFREE)
- Vegetables (SUPERFREE)
So if the thought of a full English breakfast is your idea of a great breakfast to set you up for the day, you could load your plate with eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans and have as much of it as you wanted…..as it is all FREE ::))
Then for breakfast/dinner and tea your food plate should look like this : 2/3 of your plate filled with free foods such as rice, pasta, potatoes, fish, meat eggs etc and the remaining1/3 filled with fruit, vegetables and saladThen there are whats called as SYNS. This is the naughty bit of for your wine, takeaways , sweets basically anything that is not FREE or SUPERFREE FOOD. Each day you get allocated 5-15 syns a day. You dont have to use these each day so for example if you knew you were going out the weekend you could save your SYNS up all week and use them on your night out as in a week you have a total of 115 SYNS.
I love my food and being on medication it does increase your appetite, and I’m not an angel on this but following slimming world gives me the choice of being in control of what I eat and you know that most of your food intake is healthy. Its the flexibility of the SYNS that give you that feeling of not being deprived of treats, such as a night out or take away etc
