The Club with the Big Heart – The Slimming World Diet

Slimming World is another of the massive diet plans that have been backed by experts.

With online profiles, as well as support groups and meetings, you will usually find that the Slimming World Diet is not just a list of foods that you can or cannot eat.  It is more like a new way of life where you will meet new friends, have common goals and be motivated to lose weight by eating healthily and exercising along with other people that look and feel the same as you do.

The latter has proven to be very popular over recent years, as trained consultants will help you to find all of the tools necessary in order to lose weight at a reasonable pace and in a healthy manner. You will also meet new people, get a large bumper pack of goodies to help you to lose weight, and also feel comfortable in the company of those that want to achieve the same goals as you do.

You will get the same kind of support, with plenty of recipes to browse from, tracking tools so you can see exactly where you are succeeding or failing, and even motivational features to give you that little extra push.

How does it work?

Slimming World Diet plans do not rely on a points based scheme or a calorie counting scheme in order for you to lose weight. Instead it uses a system called food optimizing.

This means that there are certain foods that you can eat pretty much as much as you like of , such as healthy fruits and vegetables, meat, pasta and rice, while avoiding the foods that are not quite so good for you. You may have green days, which are vegetable based and red days, which are  vegetables mixed with meat. You have a list of foods that you can pick from and the good news is that the list is pretty lengthy!

The free foods (foods that you can eat as much as you like) include:

  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Eggs
  • Fruit
  • Potatoes
  • Vegetables
  • Poultry
  • Lean meat
  • Fish

On top of this you have additional “extras” that are healthy, but you can only have a certain amount of. These include:

  • Cereal
  • Milk
  • Whole meal bread
  • Cheese

The idea behind the Slimming World Diet is to eat low calorie foods that are also low fat and filling, as well as foods that you actually enjoy.  If you do not feel constantly hungry you will do better at maintaining your diet , and thus your weight loss.
