Free Food is the superhero at the heart of our eating plan, giving millions of slimmers the freedom to live the life they want, eat the food they love and still lose weight with Slimming World.

That’s why we’ve planned a fabulous festival to show off the liberating power of Free Food in all its delicious glory – and we’re inviting you to join the fun!

You can find out more about joining Slimming World here

What is Slimming World’s Free Food Festival? 

If you’re not already a Slimming World member, then February is an exciting time to join!

In the weeks beginning either 5th or 12th February (depending on your Consultant), all participating groups will be holding lively cook-off competitions, where members can share their own Free Food recipes and the groups vote for the winners.

We’d love Slimming World Online members to send us their Free Food recipes and foodie photos, too. We’ll choose our top 10 dishes and invite members to vote for their favourites.

All group and online winners will receive a certificate and an exclusive tea towel. Best of all, they’ll be entered into our national competition for a chance to win £1,000/€1,300 AND have their dish become part of the Slimming World food range at Iceland!

Tell me more about Free Food 

The beauty of Free Food is that you can eat as much of it as you like, and new members are often flabbergasted to find out what’s on the menu. As well as the usual suspects like fruit and vegetables (yes, including baked beans and potatoes!), you’ll also notice that lean meat, meat replacements, poultry, eggs and fish are on the Free Food list – so that’s your cooked breakfasts and Sunday dinners sorted. 

New members are also surprised by the fact that pasta and rice are not only allowed on the plan but completely Free – so you can pile that spaghetti high!
