The company founded by Margaret Miles-Bramwell in 1969 hits the U.S.! The land of opportunity citizens finally have a liberating, motivating and sustainable weight loss approach that has been proven to be successful throughout its 47 years’ experience in the U.K.

Slimming World is a program built upon a deep understanding that people who are overweight carry a double burden: the burden of weight itself and the far heavier burden of guilt, self-criticism and low self-esteem.

Slimming World’s success is achieved by three components that work together to make losing weight easy, enjoyable and effective: a sustainable healthy eating plan that offers freedom from hunger and guilt called Food Optimizing, a motivational support package that helps members grow in confidence and know-how, termed Online Community and Facilitated Peer Support, and an activity program for every fitness level, the Body Magic.

Based on the science of satiety, Food Optimizing is a healthy eating plan that helps people move away from food choices that may have caused them to gain weight in the past and is comprised of three nutritional pillars – Free Foods, Healthy Extras and Syns.

  • Free Foods – Nutritious and filling foods, available from every grocery store, which members can enjoy in unlimited amounts: lean meat, poultry, fish, fruits, vegetables, potatoes, pasta, rice, eggs, fat free yogurt and more. These are foods that are most filling and low in calories.
  • Healthy Extras – Measured amounts of foods that are high in fiber including whole-wheat bread or cereals, and calcium-rich foods such as milk and cheese.
  • Syns – The foods that most diets ban. Syns stands for synergy, the synergy that’s created by freedom, healthfulness and just the right amount of control. At Slimming World, members are encouraged to enjoy controlled amounts of “treats” such as wine, chocolate, potato chips and sauces – so there’s no need to feel deprived or guilty.

One of the most motivating part of the program is the story of Jennifer Ginley, a 26-year-old woman who lose 135lbs and drop nine dress sizes, winning a national award for her weight loss. “Before Slimming World I wouldn’t eat any breakfast or prepare any lunch or snacks for work, so I always found myself eating whatever I could lay my hands on – shop-bought sandwiches, packet noodles, chip shop meals. Now I prepare in advance so I’m ready for the day ahead," said the current Slimming World’s Miss Slinky 2017.

Start your journey today and forget the traditional ‘dieting’ with a liberating, motivating and sustainable lifestyle change, that has led millions to weight loss success for life.
