I'm not sure about any sites (apart from the slimming world one itself) but I'm here if you've got any specific questions smile

Google slimming world survival guide.
There's lots of pdf to down load but I can't link them on my phone.

Thanks so much for your replies. I just want to know how it works, but I look at the sites and it seems really complicated, yet people assure me it's easy! Lolsmile

You have Free food like fruit, veg, meat, fish, beans, pulses, pasta, rice, noodles cous cous, fat free yoghurt, fromage frais, eggs.

Some fruit and veg have speed symbols which helps increase weight loss. They recommend that you have 1/3 speed on your plate to replace some of the carbs. Protein fills you up so good to have a third of that.

You get a calcium healthy Extra which is milk or cheese. This needs to be weighed or measured, and a fibre healthy Extra which ranges from bread, cereal, crispbread, nuts, tinned soup. This is also weighed or measured.

You then get 5-15 syns a day which you can use on extra milk, alcohol, crisps, chocolate, biscuits etc.

It's not too much weighing and counting. But I find it good to plan.
