Food Optimising on Black Friday

We’ve got the know-how and the motivation to help you overcome the hurdles that a day out shopping can bring. 

If you’re looking to bag a bargain on the 23rd, here are our top tips to stick to your slimdown while you shop: 

  • Enjoy a Food Optimising breakfast before you leave home: Fitting in a healthy, filling breakfast will set you up for a full-on shopping day and keep you going until lunchtime.
  • Look for healthier lunch options: Head for food outlets that sell Free Food-packed salad pots, or low-Syn sushi selections. Jacket potatoes (without butter) and Subway salads are also great choices.
  • Avoid coffee‑shop shocks: Little extras like cream, sprinkles and syrup can turn a simple coffee into a high-Syn surprise. Sticking to regular coffee, tea and skinny cappuccinos is your best bet.
