Slimming World Review and One-Day Offer!

I have tried quite a few weight-loss programs, in an effort to maintain or even shed a few pounds.  I have found that, for the most part, if the program involves lots of tiny details that I have to track or maintain, I do not do well on it.

Slimming World, the U.K.'s most popular weight-loss program that is now available across the U.S., offered me a trial of their online program to do at home.  The premise of the program is much more simple than I thought possible.  They guide you through  the basic steps to start eating better, mainly with:

1.  Free foods.  You can eat as much of these as you want!

2.  Healthy Extras.  These are delicious and healthy options that you should 3 of a day.

3.  Syns.  All of your sugary and fatty foods fall into this group.  You should limit yourself to a set number (5-10) based on the serving and type.  (The site calculates the syn value of each food for you!)

What I love about the program is that you can get very flexible with your eating plan.  Eat what you want, but in the amounts that are healthy for you.  Also, if you find yourself away from the computer or your materials, you can choose to eat from the Free Foods, with 3 Healthy Extras (they are easy to memorize) and you don't have to trouble yourself with Syn calculations.

The program is really focused on balancing your diet.  There are all kinds of recipes, tools, and plate samples to help you realize what a balanced meal should look like.  The site is also updated frequently, so there is always new inspiration, tips, and meal plans to keep you motivated!
