What is Slimming World?
Slimming World is an innovative, UK based, weight loss programme, which allows you to eat as much food as you want by restricting foods that are high in energy, saturated fats, and sugars. This promotes a healthier lifestyle for you and your family without causing you to go hungry.
Slimming World Meetings
Slimming World group membership involves attending weekly meetings in your local area. In these meetings, you will be weighed in private and your weight loss or gain will be read out to the group. You weight will never be disclosed to other members. There will be weekly rewards for ‘Slimmer of the Week’ and monthly rewards for ‘Slimmer of the Month’ to help to inspire you to continue to lose weight.
Once the weigh in has been finished you will begin IMAGE (Individual Motivation And Group Experience) Therapy which is a motivational discussion between you, the other members, and the consultants. IMAGE Therapy will encourage you to lose weight by hearing other people’s experiences. These can be used to help you identify common barriers which prevent you from losing weight and to come up with effective solutions to overcome these.
Slimming World Consultants
Slimming World groups are run by self- employed Slimming World Consultants who have successfully lost weight using Slimming World themselves. Consultants are warm, friendly and are truly passionate about helping you to achieve your weight loss goals.
Slimming World is not about humiliation or punishment and the Consultants are at hand to motivate and encourage you to lose weight through a series of techniques. They are there to provide you with support and to give advice, recipes, and tips to help you to achieve your target weight.
Slimming World Online
Members benefit from Slimming World’s online support known as Lifeline Online. This provides you with motivation and support in between weekly meetings. You will be able to find and share inspirational stories, recipes, Food Optimising menus, an online food diary, a Syns Calculator, and a chart to record your progress. This is updated regularly to provide you with up to date information to aid your weight loss. Slimming World also offers their online service to members who do not wish to attend groups.
Food Optimising is the system developed by Slimming World which allows you to eat low energy, filling foods as much as you want. You can add to these with Healthy Extras, which are nutritional foods that you can eat in limited quantities and Syns which are high- energy foods, which are given a number of Syn points so that you can limit your intake of them.
Food Optimising is successful as it allows you to lose weight without suffering from hunger pains.
