Slimming World makes MAJOR changes to some of it's popular 'free' foods

14th Dec 17 | News

In a new shake-up, members of the Slimming World diet plan will no longer be able to count some of their previous guilt free meals as “Syn-free”.

The diet, which is designed to help you lose about one to two pounds a week, involves free foods and allows dieters up to 15 “Syns” a day.

For many dieters who were feeling peckish, Mug Shots and Batchelors Pasta 'n' Sauce were classed as "free foods" -  but now Slimming World members will need to count them as "Syns" as the amount of pasta and noodles in them is too low to fill you up.

In advice issued to members and consultants, Slimming World says:

“The team at our Head Office who look after our food databases are always busy making sure that the guidance you get gives you the very best chance of slimming success.

Knowing how much the pasta and noodle ‘landscape’ has changed over recent years, they’ve taken a closer look at how they evaluate the different types of pasta and noodles in snack pots and sachets.

These extra checks have highlighted that these products are not as bulky, filling or satisfying as we thought (in fact the amount of pasta and noodles in some of them is really very low).

And as a result some that were previously Free now have a small Syn value ranging from ½ Syn to 3 Syns.

Plain dried pasta and noodles are still free.”
