    Hey Gingernut,

    I found slimming world quite easy once you get your head round the fact that you must eat lots - which sounds a bit daft if you think in traditional 'diet' terms. To be fair though I can not realy compare this to any other plan as this is the only proper plan I have been on.

    I can honestly say that I never go hungry on this plan though.

    Hope you find something thats right for you.

    This is where im a bit frightened to eat lots of free food are you doing the extra easy plan .
    What i cant understand is that with syns some are pretty high in syns like if you want a trat once a week like a individual steak pie or a packet of crisps even a teacake
    Does this mean you cant have them

    Well lets see if I can manage to answer all that:

    Firstly I try to eat lots of free food as part of my meals like lots of fruit veg and salad.

    I don't do extra easy very often - I think that that is just a mental thing for me rather than anything else - You can only have 1 a and 1 b on extra easy and I have done read and green for so long I was feeling cheated!

    If I want a treat I have it and count it in as my sins. I dont often eat 'normal' crisps but I do have lower syn value ones like french fries or lites.

    I have tended to keep my sins for the end of the day and have a glass of wine or some chocolate but recently I have started using them for little things to make my food taste better like lite mayo etc.
