 Slimming World facts

  • Slimming World's members follow a 'Food Optimising' eating plan, take moderate activity through its 'Body Magic' programme, and have group support through shared experience with other slimmers to encourage behaviour change, called IMAGE Therapy
  • Slimming World's eating plan is based on the science of satiety (the satisfying qualities of food) and energy density
  • Foods that satisfy the appetite and are low in energy density, such as fruit and vegetables, pasta, potatoes, fish and lean meat, are called 'Free Foods' and can be eaten without weighing, counting or measuring
  • Foods which are often banned on other weight-loss plans, are allowed within Food Optimising, and these are controlled by a "Syns" counting system
  • Slimming World's 'IMAGE' (Individual Motivation And Group Experience) Therapy group support system uses elements of Transactional Analysis, Motivational Interviewing, influence of ego states on behaviour and more recently Compassionate Mind Theory
  • During the hour-long group support session, members share their experiences of the preceding week, discuss their weight losses or gains, and share ideas and strategies for the week ahead
  • Members share practical advice such as recipe suggestions, as well as strategies to cope with times when motivation is low
  • At group, members are weighed and their weight change is shared with the group
  • A member's actual weight is confidential, and is not revealed to the group
  • Slimming World was founded in Derbyshire in 1969 by Margaret Miles-Bramwell, who remains its chairman
