    Does anyone ever put their food into myfitnesspal?

    Hi, I've only started Slimming World on Thursday and just out of interest put my two day's food into myfitnesspal... Friday was fine as came out at around 1500 cal, but yesterday was 2250! I'm completely sticking to plan, and only ate when I was hungry, 1/3 superfree at every meal, but portion size is definitely one of my issues with food! I wasn't stuffed at any point, so I'm a but worried that just to feel satisfied I'm going to overeat
    Do you think I should keep an eye on calories/ cut portion sizes a bit, or just carry on with the plan and hope I manage to lose at weigh in?
    Any advice greatfully received!

    Just follow the plan.......SW isn't about counting calories!

    SW has been a successful weight loss plan for about 45 years....it's about eating healthy filling foods and not worrying about counting.
    Calorie counting is another diet plan and works.....don't try and mix the two.


    You won't go far wrong if you stick to it

    I gave up using mfp because I was always over on my calories. I've been a member since jan and only had 1 gain so don't worry too much about it unless your losses have slowed down xx

    Thanks for the reassurance, I'll forget about MFP then and just enjoy! One thing's for sure, I'm definitely eating more fruit and veg - I reckon I've managed about 10 a day both days which is a lot better than the 2-3 I'd manage left to my own devices!

    I agree with lentil, do either one or the other.. When you first start sw its difficult to see how you can lose weight whilst eating normal food, but if you stick to the plan you will!
    I think if i hit a brick wall and couldn't shift any more i would consider calorie counting to see if there's something obvious, like carb portion size for me, that i could limit. But while im still losing im just enjoying it good luck, let us know how you get on x

    It's not a diet - Healthy Eating - Slimming World The easiest way to think about sw is that it is changing the way you think about food, its a lifestyle change not some fad diet and somethign you can stick to for the rest of your life and enjoy the food you like xx

    I use mfp simply bc I find it more user friendly than the sw app (which I don't like!)

    But I don't tend to fixate on the cals. It's more of a keeping track of everything kinda thing.

    With your weight, your basal metabolic rate is 2300 calories. That's without doing anything! With daily activity, you'll be burning about 3000-3500 calories a day. You're going to feel hungrier. You need more food now than you'll need when your 3 stone lighter. As you lose weight, your appetite should start to decrease. Just pay attention to it. I think this is where some people half way through slimming world decide it doesn't work. They've never allowed their portion size to adjust as they've lost weight, but kept eating the same size portions.

    I can can definitely eat less now than I could 5 months ago. Slimming world is about listening to your body and forming good life long habits. I use MyFitnessPal as my diary and all it shows me is that slimming world is awesome

    Thanks all! I decided not to worry about it and just stick to following the plan. Second weigh in today and lost 3lbs... alright but not an earth-shattering first week! Will stick with it though and see how next week goes!

    3lb is a great loss!!

    I'm not sure why people feel let down when they don't have massive losses on the first week! Though might I add, I think 3lbs is a massive loss!! Losing weight isn't just about each individual loss, it about accumulative losses that all add up in the long run.

    I used to but I found it to be pointless and to be honest, counter productive. You can either count calories or count syns, the two aren't designed to go together. SW isn't just about calories, it's about the nutritional values in calories and so you can eat more but it's good food, good calories and you lose weight. MFP doesn't track syns so it won't help you in your SW journey in my opinion.
    My Minimins diary - http://www.minimins.com/slimming-wor...s-g-mrs-c.html

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
    We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.

    If i stopped tracking I'd be eating 600-700cal a day just sticking to slimmingworld rules. Which I don't see as sustainable long term or good for me!
