    Hi

    I went to class last night and our leader has set us a challenge to eat 5 super speed foods a day for a week!

    Has anyone ever tried this and does it work? I've got great hopes of the weight falling off me this week!!!

    Hi Annette,

    I am new to slimming world myself so have not tried this (just swapped after finishing cambridge diet).

    I just wanted to say please please please can you let us know how you get on with this challenge as I for one will be really intrigued to know the result.

    Good luck :)

    It definately works if you eat loads of grapefruit. It's probably the best SS food there is

    Hi
    Grapefruit it is in the morning but no sweetener ugh!!!!!!
    I used to eat grafefruit after my lunch in the staffroom and never noticed the same lady leave every time I started to eat one - found out it 'went through her' and she couldn't sit there while I ate it.

    Hi all,

    remember that super speed foods are such because they are filling whilst being particularly low in calorie. There is no doubt that if you fill up on free, super free, speed and super speed foods you will have a fab weight loss but eat the ones you enjoy! Being miserable cause you hate grapefruit will only weaken your resolve!


    Good luck!

    Hi

    It's my second day on the challenge and I'm finding it quite hard to fit the 5 in! I'm eating much more than normal (hope the scales don't tip the wrong way!!) and have discovered that I quite like fish and I don't dislike melon any more!! Really enjoying ruby grapefruits (no sweetener!)!

    Am sticking at it and will let you know the results after weigh in on Thursday!

    Just looked at this again. 5 a day? That sounds hard to fit in! I will try this sometime though, see if it makes a difference

    Yes 5 a day! It's really hard to fit it in and I've not noticed any difference at all. In fact I got on the scales this morning and I'd put half a pound on and I've stuck to it rigidly plus been exercising too!

    Needless to say - I'm not very happy!
