I have to admit I am totally baffled as to how slimming world works! What was your diet beforehand? I'm assuming most people ate a lot and perhaps had no self control or ate lots of bad foods? I have always ate far smaller portions than slimming world people .. I can't believe the portion sizes when I see photos online!.. and by default ate lots of fruit and veg i.e. Never loaded my plate with carbs. It's always been normal for me to have a very balanced plate, more veg and good stuff! I am assuming those that lose weight on slimming world ate very different portions beforehand and perhaps junk or carby foods and had no portion control? I honestly think I'd put on weight if I ate the portion sizes and food types that everyone I see on slimming world eating! It would be more than double my carb Intake and wayyyyyy more calories than I'd ever consume and I'd be eating the same amount of fruit and veg. I don't really snack either.. I eat mostly enough to keep me satisfied but if I'm hungry I just wait until my next meal or if I do so rarely snack I have some fruit or carrot sticks. I'm a size 8 but would like to lose a little bit as I could be trimmer - not a huge deal but I want to ask the question as for a healthy eater, slimming world weight loss seems too good to be true! Probably stating the obvious but for an already healthy and food educated eater, slimming world would do nothing for someone like me right?! Thanks!!
