    Question SW high in fat and sugar?!

    Me and my mum have been doing SW for 2 months now and each lost just under 1.5 stone. Although he eats his own breakfast and lunch as he is at work, my dad has been eating the SW tea with us and is happy with what we have. At weekends he also participates in our breakfast and lunch too. My dad has recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but hasn't yet been given any tablets as they want to see how he is after 3 months of healthy eating etc. but he went to see a diabetes nurse at our doctors yesterday and he told her that he was partially following SW and that we had lost some weight on it so he was happy to continue on that plan as it is working perfectly fine. She then said that that's good for them (us) but he shouldn't be on it because it contains a lot of fat and sugar. I can't believe that she said this! Is it true? If not, why would she think that? Any input would be appreciated!

    Healthy fats and natural sugars perhaps, but I don't see how this is a bad thing? Did he ask her to elaborate?

    He's a man so no, he didn't ask her to elaborate, just nodded and said ok! All the meat we have is lean and any sugar in recipes etc is sweetener instead. We have 0% fat yoghurts and semi skimmed milk so I don't understand it either...

    Does she know the SW plan exactly or she she assuming she knows it or mistaking it with another plan?

    SW is what you make it really, what you choose to cook and eat. For example I'm on extra easy and have been cooking my meals from scratch and none of them have been high fat. The only fat used is a few sprays of fry light when needed for chicken/mince/making a sauce. All meat is lean with fat removed and the only sugar I have comes from fruit/other natural sugars as I don't add any.

    Strange that she thinks it's high fat and sugar. Maybe keep a food diary and ask your Dad to keep a food diary to show her next time.
    ~In the end you only regret the chances you didn't take~

    ~What you eat in private you wear in public~

    When you think about quitting, think about why you started!

    Hahaha!

    There are natural sugars in fruit so I can only assume she means that? Also skimmed milk has a higher sugar content than fattier milks as well.

    As for the fat, maybe she means the hex a?

    I think the nurse is mistaken maybe she thinks it's another plan. As there're plenty if people who follow sw with diabetes and I have read success stories where people have come of their medication due to sw

    She's probably right. The plan usually requires some tweaking for diabetic people. They have to watch carbohydrates and fruit quantities. So just eating unlimited fruits, pasta, potatoes etc wouldn't be great for your dad. Those are the types of thing they have to restrict.

    But he can tweak the plan easily. In my group we have a diabetic lady who's just adjusted the plan to suit her needs and she gets on well x

    Since starting SW two things have dropped off my shopping list and I would NEVER buy them again if it weren't for having them around for friends and family - these two things are sugar and fats such as cooking oils and butter. When I started SW back in September last year I bought I small tub of lighter butter, that tub is still more than 3/4 full (hubby has full fat butter and goes through his own tubs at a much faster rate). My husband has to remind me to buy cooking oil because I never touch the bottle and only he uses it, so only he sees when it is empty. This is the lowest sugar and fat diet I have ever eaten. Any sugars I have come from natural sugars in fruit, very measured amounts of biscuits and chocolates which I allow very occasionally as my syns and any fat comes from the occasional less than lean piece of meat where the fat is not visible and therefore not easy to cut off. I think she can't possibly be talking about SW.

    My dad joined slimming world in Oct last year after having a stroke which was likely caused by his diabetes. anyways he was on metaformin twice a day for diabetes and he is now 4 stone lighter and off all medication for diabetes. He still needs to go for 6 monthly checks but he has followed SW. They also have a diabetes supplement u can ask ur consultant for xx

    My dad just had to watch he didn't over do fruit but that's about it. He is so happy he was on medication for years and wishes he had done it long ago and his diabetes nurse and GP who specialises in diabetes was thrilled he was doing SW

    Hi all,

    Thanks for all your help and advice. I'll tell him to mention it when he next goes. I'm doing SW online so don't have a consultant to ask for help or sheets etc. but we'll cope!

    Thanks again!

    "a lot of fat and sugar"

    Sorry, but she's talking out her bumhole.

    A diabetic would have to watch the fruit intake, watching things that have natural sugar in them, but to say SW has a lot of fat and sugar is ridiculous.

    I'm a type 2 diabetic and no one has said anything to me about not doing it.. Also, I've found my sugars to be fine since I've been doing it (I've only been doing it 2 weeks so far)
    I actually got referred to SW from my doctors :\ x
