This January Slimming World has trawled its research to
identify the recipe for successful – and sustainable – weight loss. The UK's
favourite slimming club surveyed the lifestyle habits of its most successful
slimmers, the target members who have lost weight and kept it off for at least
12 months. It found most people had seven habits in common and dubbed them 'the
seven secrets of successful slimmers'.
The Team who run Slimming World groups
in Central and West Plymouth say: "By learning from other slimmers' success,
and perhaps where they've gone wrong with past New Year's resolutions, people
in Plymouth who want to slim down this January can give themselves the best possible
chance of achieving their goal.
"Successful weight loss isn't just
about losing weight, it's about keeping it off too. Making temporary changes
and going on a 'diet' that's unsustainable in the long-term will only ever be a
quick fix, meaning you're bound to regain any weight you lose – and maybe more
– as soon as you go back to your normal eating habits. The key is to make
healthy, realistic changes to your lifestyle that you can keep up for the rest
of your life."

more and likely to give into temptation. Slimming World's Food Optimising
eating plan allows members to satisfy their appetite on unlimited amounts of
every day foods that are filling but low in fat too like fruit and veg, pasta,
rice, potatoes, lean meat, fish, eggs and fat free dairy, so they can lose
weight without having to feel guilty, deprived or hungry.
important not to become obsessive and get hung up on constantly weighing, counting
and measuring what you're eating. Sticking to a super-strict diet is near
impossible because no one wants to go without their favourite treats forever,
whether that be chocolate or a glass of wine or beer. Being flexible by
enjoying regular treats and special occasions means slimmers can lose weight or
maintain a healthy weight without missing out.
up regular activity.
successful slimmers are those who introduce some form of exercise into their
lives as well as adopting healthier eating habits. However, many people make
the mistake of aiming for too much too soon, instead start with small steps and
build up to a goal gradually. In the survey walking, one of the least strenuous
activities, ranked the most popular.
4. Plan and monitor
meals and shopping and focusing on their progress week-by-week means Slimming
World members are more in control of their weight loss and less likely to be
thrown off course by unexpected events. Recognising what might have sent
previous slimming campaigns off track can help.
5. Do it for yourself.
to lose weight scores very low as a motivator. Slimming World puts members in
the driving seat, choosing what they want to eat and what weight they want to
6. Involve the whole family.
separate special 'diet' meals can make healthy eating seem like a chore,
enjoying the same healthy meals as the rest of the family was a predictor for
success in the research – and they'll be healthier too! In fact sharing your
goal with a family member or friend can add that little bit of extra commitment
to succeed too, and if they're happy to join in with you all the better.
