Have two toddlers and a dh. I need to lose weight. I did ww years ago and it worked but I was single so I was only responsible for feeding me. Far different now.
I'm loathe to spend the money to join and fail because I can't fathom out what to do to suit all of us for dinner out of the list. I'd probs do online rather than meetings.
It talks about free foods and unlimited with no counting. Can anyone give me an idea what foods that covers please?
Italian esque stuff features a lot, as does meat and two veg type as kids like plain, obvious food with little messing with. They aren't adventurous at 3 & 1, but eat well if recognisable and simple. They love gravy.
Dh and I are more adventurous but time is the key, or being bothered. Our downfall is portion size I think. And booze, the obvious crisps etc so I'd hope by cutting obvious stuff out if food was right it would work simply.
Hi Minnie. I've got to goal using the pro points system, found it worked very well for me.
Simple start, which goes on to become what they call 'filling and healthy' can only really work if you're prepared to cook from scratch and would seem to be ideal for someone with a family to cook for - I know someone who has lost masses on f & h and she has four children. Most foods are allowed. It does have a few restrictions but they are very few, and really wouldn't impact on feeding a family.
You eat until you feel satisfied and learn portion control and of course, you cut out the sort of things you mention, crisps, booze etc.
Simple Start is basically unlimited lean meat, eggs, pulses, brown rice, brown pasta, potatoes, veg, fruit plus a few specific bread like products. It's back to basics eating with very little fat at all. It works if you stick to it and it sounds like your family's diet might work ok with it. Good luck!
