It's actually pretty easy if I'm honest. Most fruit and vegetables are "speed" foods. Most meats, potato, sweet potato, rice, pasta, grains etc are "free", along with the fruit and veg that isn't "speed" (bananas, sweet corn, peas etc)

All meals should be made up at least 1/3 speed foods and the rest mainly all free foods.

In addition to this, you have two "healthy extra" choices. These have to be measured and theres a list of what you are allowed for each, but its things like cereal and bread for your B choice and cheese, milk etc for your A choice.

You also have syns which are other foods which don't fall into the above categories, or if you want more of A or B choices. They are all in the book too.

I joined at Christmas. I've lost 4 stone (well I'm 2lbs away) since then! I go to group every week and I find them really useful! I'd definitely say it's worth the 5 a week - however I guess that's entirely down to the consultant you get! I really love it! You can eat real food so it really fits in with family life!
I sound like I'm on commission! I'm not I promise! It's just really clicked with me! Xx

I'm so sorry, I completely forgot I posted here! I've actually just got back from my slimming group, I've put on 10lbs and I'm only 15 weeks pregnant tomorrow Need to start eating a bit better! I actually took my two DD's tonight, they got collected after 30 mins but everyone loved seeing them, they don't seem to mind kids there. A friend joined when her baby was 6 weeks and bought her along every week for the first few months.

Personally I couldn't do it just at home online. I need someone to answer to and the spurring on that I get from the group. It sounds to me like every group and group leader is different, and different people need different things to succeed. Trial and error I think!

Good luck. X

I have been to a few groups, the first I didn't gel with my consultant but I loved the plan itself.
This time I love my consultant, I have been going for 13 weeks and have lost 1stone and 11.5lbs.
I know its 4.95 a week to get weighed, but I stay every week. Our group is lovely and friendly and the support I get from it is definitely worth it in my book.
Good luck on your journey xx

Quick question regarding working out syns.. am I right in thinking 20kcal = 1syn?

LO has some sweet cinnamon puffcorn in the cupboard, and per bag it's 39kcal... So 2 syns? Right?

I don't think it works like that, it depends on the fat, fibre and carbohydrate content. You can enter the info into the calculator and it tells you the syns.

Like, avocado is calorie dense but is free.

Omg it is, I didn't even know! I have been eating a whole avocado every day haha! Probably explains why my loss has been slow!
