If you’re studying at college at the moment, and that first taste of freedom – to shop for yourself, to cook whatever you like, and to enjoy an active social life day and night – has brought with it a tightening waistband as well as a tightening budget, look no further for a cost-effective, healthy, and delicious solution!
Eating and drinking is an important part of student life. Recent figures show that, on average, students put on 15lbs during their first year at college.
So is it possible to eat healthily and deliciously while living on a tight budget, enjoying an active social life, and making your own food decisions without mom! Absolutely!
Food Optimising, Slimming World’s healthy eating plan, is based around healthy and filling everyday foods – many of which you’ll find in the ‘value ranges’ at your local store: pasta, rice, chicken, and other lean meat, vegetables (including frozen), potatoes, eggs, and fruit to name but a few!
And many very successful members, including Nikki McDonnell, have Food Optimised during their studies. Nikki told us, “I felt so uncomfortable with my weight at school that I used to hide myself away under a big black coat. As my confidence dropped, so did my grades. School was an amazing experience but it came with so much pressure - meeting new people, living away from family and friends, and strict deadlines. Fortunately, in joining Slimming World, I discovered that I didn’t have to suffer with the issues that came with being overweight for very long.
I got to choose my own target weight, my current weight and I never felt judged or criticised. It was so easy - I could even eat chips, have chocolate and enjoy vodka and fries! I never looked back!
If you’d like to beat the statistics and swap a 15lb weight gain for a trim and healthy new you, you’ll be warmly welcomed at Slimming World.
