Obesity can take 8 years off of life
A Canadian study discovered that obesity can take 8 years off of a person's life, and leave them in poor health for 19 years before that. The findings highlight the dangers of obesity as a contributor to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses.
Although the study findings are dire, we at Slimming World have known for 45 years the tremedous physical and emotional toll obesity can take on someone. That's why kind, caring, non-judgmental support is so important when it comes to helping people to make long-term lifestyle changes for their health.
Through an understanding and compassionate approach—and the most generous and flexible healthy eating plan out there—Slimming World helps members to develop the motivation and confidence they need to make lasting, healthy lifestyle changes.
If you're looking to lose weight, we at Slimming World will do everything we can to support you every step of the way. Find out more about the Slimming World difference and take the first step to that amazing, healthy life you've wanted!
Spot our Elf on the Shelf!
After returning to the office from Thanksgiving break, we discovered an Elf on the Shelf visiting for the holidays!
Our elf is popping up all over the Slimming World office, and you can see what he's up to on our Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram accounts.
Lately, he was spotted in the office fridge...perhaps the cold reminds him of his North Pole home? (That, or he's eating all our Free Foods!)
Join us in the just-for-fun holiday spirit and follow us on social media to find out where he'll crop up next!
Best buffet choices for holiday slimming
A sprawling holiday buffet might seem like a slimmer's worst nightmare, but with Slimming World's generous, flexible eating plan, there's so much to choose from that buffets can be wonderfully filling and slimming!
Since buffets are all about choice, you can be beautifully in control of what, and how much, you'd like to enjoy. Eating a snack before heading the buffet can ensure you can make your choices with a clear head, and walking through the buffet before you choose means you'll know all your options.
Thanks to the wide variety at most buffets, you can usually spot these foods, which are perfect for slimming—in fact, they're Free with Food Optimising, meaning you can eat as much as you like, whenever you like!
- Crudite or cut up veggies
- Slices of your favorite lean meat (remove skin and visible fat to keep it Free)
- Plain pasta or rice
- Sliced hard-boiled eggs
- Fish or seafood, with sauces on the side so you can choose how much to enjoy
- Any fresh or frozen fruit
If this way of slimming (no hunger, no counting, no kidding!) sounds like it's for you, here's how you can join Slimming World for so much more support and inspiration.
