How Does Slimming World Work

Have you ever wondered how the Slimming World diet works?

I have been following the Slimming World Extra easy plan for over a two years now and it really does work. The reason it works for me is because it does not eliminate any foods from my diet.. I can eat so much and the weight still comes off.

A rough idea of how it works is below.. but i always recommend joining a local group or Slimming World online. You can join here. Don’t forget to check out Topcashback first.. as they regularly have great cash back deals for online membership.



These are your saviors.. Almost all fruits and vegetables will be super free. Fill up your plate with as much of this as possible.. at least 1/3 of the plate should be full to the brim of fresh fruit and veg. Also use these for snacking when you feel hunger.

I always have plenty of carrot sticks, raspberries etc in the fridge.

The best thing about the Slimming World plan is that you can eat as much potatoes, pasta, rice, baked beans, meat, eggs etc that you can fit in that belly of yours. My favourite lunch is baked potato, beans and a huge side salad. Totally filling and its something i would have normally too.. just without the butter!

Each day you are allowed a portion size of dairy. This is to ensure your body is receiving the correct amount of calcium per day.

This gives you the milk allowance to use on cereal, tea, coffee etc.. or some cheese for those cheese lovers out there.


Foods high in carbohydrate



Each day you are allowed a certain portion size of bread, cereal etc.. This is to ensure your body is receiving enough fibre.

This usually includes 2 slices of bread, a portion of cereal.. perfect to use for breakfast or lunch. This is probably the bit i find the hardest because i love my bread!

Each day you are allowed from 5 to 15 syns per day. Everything that isn’t included in the “free food” section has a syn value. Use this to treat yourself..

I have a syn tin in my house full of little treats. Or use it on a glass of red wine, vodka, cocktail with the girls 🙂



If you struggle knowing your portions of speed foods, free foods etc I highly recommend this awesome Slimming world portion control plate.
