    Hi, being that i already had the books etc to do slimming world i decided to take it up again 3 days ago. I did used to go to the group meetings but can't afford it at the moment! I was wondering whether eating less of the free foods would make weight loss faster? and i found that on the green days (which i am doing) I can have a certain amount of quorn in my B choice, will this however, be a syn if its in breadcrumb?? Thanks in advance :)

    I would say fill up on free food its free for a reason, cutting back on free food could cause you to crave food and binge. Quorn is a superfree food so is free on both days. you would just need to syn the breadcrumbs.

    Hi there, some Quorn products are free on a Red and Green day. No Quorn that I know of is counted as a B choice. Quorn that is in breadcrumbs will be synned. If you tell us what the product is then we can look up the syns for you.

    I would recommend filling up on free foods and don't let yourself go hungry - there's no point in trying to starve yourself just to lose weight more quickly as that goes completely against what SW is all about! If you want to try and boost your weight loss then go for free foods with S or SS next to them.

    This is a new way of eating and one that can be done for life - not a quick fix.

    Good luck!

    *Should have said that Quorn mince, fillets, pieces and sausages are free but some quorn products have syns as StaceyUK pointed out. xx

    i had 2 of the southern style quorn burgers, i know what the syns are for these so should i just put them down as syns? Thanks so much, its just strange i feel so guilty eating so much of the free foods, but as you say, they're free for a reason!

    Yes, they would be counted as syns as they're not eligible to be a B choice. Don't feel guilty - the free foods are there to fill you up and are low in calories but high in satiety so no guilt to be felt whatsoever!

    Do you have access to the SW website? they have a challenge going on at the minute, for us to try to use 5 speed foods a day, and they have 4 recipes on there and each one contains 5.

    Super Speed Foods
    The two recipes below - Green and Original versions of chilli con carne - contain 100% Speed and Super Speed Foods – tuck in and watch the weight drop off! Use as much or as little of each Free Food ingredient as you like!
    Free and speedy Original chilli for one
    *Add 6 Syns if not using red kidney beans as a Healthy Extra
    You'll need :
    Minced/ground turkey
    Passata or tinned tomatoes
    57g red kidney beans, drained
    Chopped mushrooms
    Sliced peppers
    Finely chopped onion
    Crushed garlic
    Finely chopped chilli
    Seasoning, to taste
    Fry the chilli, garlic and chopped onion in Fry Light. Add the mince/ground turkey and brown.
    Add the other vegetables and stir until softened.
    Pour in enough passata/tomato juice to cover all the vegetables and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Season well and serve on a bed of just-cooked beansprouts (Free), or with boiled rice (2 Syns per 28g/1oz)
    Free and speedy Green chilli for one
    You'll need :
    Aubergine/egg plant, cubed
    Courgette/zucchini, cubed
    Passata or tinned tomatoes
    Red kidney beans, drained
    Sweetcorn, drained
    Chopped mushrooms
    Sliced peppers
    Finely chopped onion
    Crushed garlic
    Finely chopped chilli
    Seasoning, to taste
    Fry the chilli, garlic and chopped onion in Fry Light. Add the cubed vegetables and brown.
    Add the other vegetables and stir until softened.
    Pour in enough passata/tomato juice to cover all the vegetables and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Season well and serve on a bed of just-cooked beansprouts or boiled rice
    You will lose weight if you Food Optimise without eating lots of Speed Foods. However, if there are times when your weight loss is slower than you’d like, Speed Foods are a great alternative to reducing Syns and a super way to give your motivation extra oomph!
    These recipes are taken from the SW website.

    thankyou so much! Im so excited by the fact i can eat and lose weight at the same time, today (day 3) has probably been the hardest day so far but if i eat lots of free foods i tend not to crave bad things! So free foods are the way forwards for me =)
