Not just a diet...
Member Name: Ellieczy
Advantages: weight came off and stayed off
Disadvantages: Get hungry sometimes
I am writing this on behalf of my mother as she has been following the slimming world diet for the past 4years and done amazingly well, we are so proud of her. She has lost 5 stone and been at her target weight now for almost 2 years! She has won slimmer of the week/month many times and it gives her great amounts of confidence and she looks great now.
She follows the Green Diet, which is for vegetarians and allows her to eat plenty of carbohydrates such as rice and pasta (which are free) and she also eats a large amount of fruit. She has to count things such as biscuits, bread, wine etc... and she is allowed 15 syns per day! One of her main dietary loves is Muller Light as they are free and she can have as many as she wants per day!
The diet has seen her trying new foods and healthier options such as using alternatives for cheese/cream such as quark and fat free natural yoghurt. She can still eat some quorn products which are free, others she needs to count.
Her downfall is the wine, but she sees it that life is too short to cut out everything she enjoys (she's cut out kitkat chunkys, so not wone as well). She limits her alcohol intake as much as she can.
The slimming world diet is not a diet, more like a lifestyle change for life! It promotes healthy eating and low fat foods, and does also encourage regular exercise but the main topic is of course the diet. The slimming world way of life provides people with a high intake of low energy dense foods (such as fruits) whcih means they are low in calories and fat, so you can eat plenty of them and still loose weight, and restricts high energy dense foods (such as high fat foods) which will be high in fat, and satiety). You can feel hungry on the slimming world diet due to the low energy dense foods but as you can eat lots of free foods it helps to fill the gap.
Summary: Not just a diet, a lifestyle chane
