The way I get most of my ideas and motivation to stick with the Slimming World plan is seeing what others are eating. I have put together a quick and easy guide to what I eat in a day in the hope that I inspire others.
I am not perfect when it comes to following Slimming World… I have fallen off the waggon a number of times, tried other diet plans, put weight back on etc… But I do support Slimming World and I do always go back to it. I have lost and maintained 4 and a half stone and I know the plan inside out. Motivation comes from seeing others weight loss and what others are are eating. I for one can kill lot’s of the day flicking through Instagram looking at what everyone else is eating.
I have put together a day in the life of me… So, what did I eat in one day following Slimming World and still lost weight?

My tips and info for a day on Slimming World
- I don’t eat a lot of fruit.. I usually allow myself 1 banana per day and maybe 1 or 2 other pieces of fruit. I see some people literally munching fruit for every meal.. this is all well and good and fruit is low in calories but it is loaded full of sugar.
- I always eat my Healthy Extras but I do struggle… I am not a big lover of milk but I do enjoy my cheese!
- I never go above my Syn allowance.. apparently I am allowed 20 but I never go above 15.. But I don’t deprive myself! My whole day is about my evening snack plate!
- I don’t eat after 7pm
- I don’t drink a lot, water, squash and fizzy drinks (sugar free)
