Eating out is still on the menu at Slimming World
Can you really socialise and slim? Can you eat out at your favorite restaurants and still lose weight? Can you still tuck into a hearty portion without seeing a gain at the scales the following week? When you’re Food Optimising – yes you can!
Because Food Optimising is based around normal, everyday foods – the kind of foods you’ll see on every menu – eating out can be a breeze. Becoming aware of what to look out for on the menu – the good and the not so good – is your first step to making a great choice every time!
Top eating out tips
- It can be helpful to look online for a copy of the restaurant’s menu – making healthy choices is much easier when you know what lies ahead!
- Menu items described as broiled, steamed, baked or boiled are often healthier choices. Watch out for items described as deep-fried or battered, pan-fried, breaded, creamy, Alfredo, au gratin and those that come with creamy or cheesy sauces – they tend to be oily and packed with Syns.
- Don't let the restaurant scupper your slimming. Ask for vegetables without butter and with sauces on the side. That way you choose how much to enjoy.
In our members’ area you’ll find eating out guides for all your favorite restaurants as well as lots more Food Optimising help. Join today to start your weight loss journey!

At Slimming World, our wonderful eating plan, Food Optimising, means you can eat loads of food and lose weight. There's a list as long as your arm of what we call Free Food - different foods that you can eat freely to satisfy your appetite. Then we ask you to eat some more food, called Healthy Extras, to ensure a good nutritional balance. Then, on top of all that, there's what we humorously call Syns - foods often banned on diets because they're quite fattening.
Syns, which include treats like cookies, chocolate (and peanut butter!) are what makes our eating plan effective, flexible and easy to live with for life!
