Snacking can be a worry for many slimmers. When the urge to snack strikes, we know how tempting it can be to reach for biscuits, crisps, cakes and other common trigger foods that you’d rather swerve.

Slimming World puts you back in the driver’s seat and on your way to your weight loss destination with Food Optimising. You’re in control of what you eat and when, with an eating plan that’s proven to work. Here’s how we can help…

Satisfy your appetite

The Slimming World Food Optimising plan is packed full of filling foods that you can eat freely – including pasta and potatoes – meaning that mealtimes are more satisfying, and you’re less likely to reach for unhealthy snacks.

Of course, there are times when we just don’t fancy or have time for a big meal. Our Free Foods list includes stacks of healthy snacks. We’ll help you swap cheeky nibbles for Free options that you can enjoy to your heart’s content, without stalling your weight loss.

10 Free Food snack ideas:

  • cooked chicken drumsticks with the skin removed
  • corn on the cob
  • cherry tomatoes
  • seafood sticks
  • hard-boiled eggs
  • fresh or frozen fruit
  • sliced peppers 
  • fat-free natural yogurt with fresh fruit
  • carrot and celery batons
  • speedy Slimming World houmous

Enjoy healthy snacks – and tasty treats 

No food is off-limits at Slimming World – we’re big believers in having a little of what you fancy. The Food Optimising plan includes Healthy Extras and Syns to use as you wish. 

At a Slimming World group you’ll learn how Syns work as part of a healthy balanced diet, how to plan your Syns into your daily menu and how to make them go further with our slimmed-down recipes, snacks and treat ideas. With our help, you can use your choice power to snack while staying in control.
