About Slimming World
At Slimming World you choose what to eat from a list of ‘Free’ foods, which can be eaten freely to satisfy your appetite. The list includes most fruit and vegetables, lean meat, fish, pulses, proteins, pasta, rice and potatoes. The plan is based on satiety and energy density and so these foods are chosen because they’ll fill you up for fewer calories.
Dairy and bread products are allowed daily, but they are controlled as ‘Healthy Extra’ choices, which includes measured portions of cheese, milk and bread to ensure that you get enough calcium and fibre in your diet. Everything that isn’t included in the Free Food or Healthy Extra list is given a ‘Syn’ value and you’re allowed between 5 and 15 Syns a day to be used either on adding extras such as olive oil to your food or you can use them for treats.
