    I had an idea today, there are some days I wish i had the flexibility of slimming world, ie when I'm feeling peckish all the time, that time of the month when you just want to EAT, etc

    I was thinking, could you maybe do alternate days, ie one day count WW points, the other day do slimming world and just count syns...and mix it up a bit, and see if you can loose weight?

    Don't think that would work at all. If you're eating free foods all day you could be way under or way over your points so your Sw day would ruin your WW week. If you did Ww the stuff that's not free but totally in your points would shoot your Syn level through the roof. You wouldn't be sticking to either and your system won't know if it's coming or going.

    I agree your going to have to just choose one

    I tend to agree that is prob is not a good idea and you need to choose one, but who knows unless you try. Maybe a day of sw would be better than an all out binge. It wouldnt work for me cos I do not understand the sw eat until satisfied mantra - if I knew how to do that I wouldnt be fat!

    Why don't you try WW simply filling plan? Its just like SW and you can eat meals from a list of free foods to satisfaction without counting and you have 3 points a day for treats, cheese, extra oil, treats etc. If you're having a hard time on points then I strongly recommend SFT!

    If you do online or esource there should be an option on your point tracker to change to simply filling. If not the healthy habits board is where the old core followers hang out - so I am told - and will have info on the plan there I would have thought

    WMBB send me your email address and I'll send you the list of filling foods. Here's a link to the US version which is slightly different but it'll give you an idea;

    http://www.weightwatchers.com/images/1033/dynamic/GCMSImages/FillingFoodList_US.pdf

    Basically you can eat anything from that list until you're satisfied.

    • Your list of filling foods are all free foods but can only be eaten as a meal. 3 meals a day and snack only on fruit and 0 point veg only if you're genuinely hungry between meals, not bored or whatever.
    • You should have a pint of skimmed milk a day as your calcium allowance, this can be taken at anytime, not just meals.
    • Cereals should only be eaten with milk not on its own as a snack (though I don't imagine anyone would do this lol)
    • You should have 2 tsp of a healthy oil (e.g. olive, canola, sunflower) a day that is not pointed. Any more and you have to point the extra.
    • You have 21 points a week/3 points a day for treats and other foods that are not on the filling food list
    • Remember it's not about eating until stuffed, or even full. Its about eating until satisfied (i.e. you are no longer hungry but could probably eat more, that's when you should stop)

    I think that's it! I'm sure a more experienced core-er can add more to it. I lost 21lbs on it about a year and a half ago and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately I needed to lose the last stone pretty quickly for my wedding and did the cambridge diet. Needless to say the stone came back with a vengeance after the wedding with 2 more! Which is why I'm back here again on the road to my comfy weight. I started on SW and along the line started on WW points and I intend to go back to core/super filling on Thursday after my WI.

    P.S. you can chop and change between super filling and points if you want, you just need to do at least a full week of one or the other before changing.

    I don't see why you couldn't swap between sw and ww if you stick to one plan for a full week, as you could do this with the core and points plan. As long as you stuck to one for the full week, it was fine.

    Honeyoc - thanks for that!!

    Doing it for a week wouldnt be a problem cos then youre sticking to one set of rules. It was the suggestion of daily that wouldnt work

    All slimming world foods/recipes can be converted into points anyway so i dont really see why you would need to switch back, its just a diffrent way of counting really. Personally i think ww is more accurate, although i know alot of people lose alot on slimming world.

    I agree. I dont know how it works tbh so i cant comment, it seesm for too comlicated to me and i dont understand how muller lights(1.5) are free as are whole eggs...Some of their recipes i have myself tried to convert and they are infact as high in points as the origional recipes. Madness!
