These are some hints and tips I was given when I first joined my Slimming World Class, they helped me so I would like to pass them onto you
Fill in your Food Diary, it is the only way you can keep track of what you eat, it also helps me to help you. Don’t worry if you have gone over on your syns, REMEMBER – BE HONEST!!
Choose freely from these foods. There is no weighing or measuring, eat enough to satisfy your appetite whenever you want. You need never be hungry to slim.
Choosing foods marked S will give your weight loss a boost. Choosing foods marked SS will give your weight loss an even bigger boost.
Always enjoy your healthy extras. Choose 1 from the ‘A’ Section and 1 from the ‘B’ section on Extra Easy. Eat everything in them before bedtime.
Have your syns they are your reward for doing well, you deserve them. I like to save mine for the end of the day so I can savour them. Missing them out will not mean a faster weight loss. Remember, if you are going to be out at the weekend save your syns up in the week and enjoy yourself!!
Always weigh or measure your Healthy Extras and your Syn foods. It is easy to make a mistake or fool yourself. BE HONEST.
Use Very Low Fat where indicated. Don’t use ‘low fat’ and make sure you are not fooled by the words ‘Diet’ or ‘Low Calorie’ on the packet, they can mislead.
Do not fry food with oil. If you want to cook in a pan use some water, dry fry in a non-stick frying pan or use ‘fry light’, a syn free oil. There are many ways of cooking food without oil, try grilling, cooking in the oven or using your microwave. Try herbs and spices to jazz up your cooking!
Starting the Slimming World Eating Plans can be a great opportunity to be a bit more adventurous and we have a large range of recipes and cook books which cater for all plans.
The bigger the variety of food you eat the better the weight loss you will have. Also the people that vary their food seem more able to stick to the plans and therefore have more successful results.
The last and probably the most important tip of all ……..
- PLAN YOUR MEALS
What you are going to eat tomorrow and for the rest of the week.
- HAVE PLENTY OF FREE FOOD AVAILABLE
Not only for meals, but for when you feel you need a bite to eat between meals.
- DON’T WAIT
Until you go shopping before you start to plan. Go shopping now and start now.
REMEMBER TO PLAN WHAT YOU EAT AND EAT WHAT YOU PLAN
I hope these tips will be as much use to you as they were to me.
ALL THE TIME REMEMBER ……..
WHY YOU JOINED
Keep this thought in mind. Have a goal to aim for but don’t set your goal too high to begin with, take it a step at a time and once you have reached your first goal set yourself another.
A BAD DAY DOES NOT HAVE TO MEAN A BAD WEEK!
COMMITMENT plays a big part in your slimming success, if you are committed there will be no stopping you. Come to class every week and try to stay every week. We have 10 week courses available which not only save you money but also ensure your commitment.
