Thread: Slimming World

  1. #21

    Re: Slimming World

    fat clubs work, they just make you think of what you are eating, as soon as you stop, you stop thinking " Oh if I eat this box of KK's I'll look a right bloater on weight day " , so you put weight back on

    no harm in them at all imho, they offer you support, they give you the tools to lose weight, but they mainly just make you think about what you are eating

    I installed the Fitbit app again, it had a section to record what you eat and what calories it is, so I now think " do I really need to eat this Danish with my coffee as its 250 Calories "

    If you take a overweight dog or cat to a vet, theyíll tell you to cut down the animals food intake and exercise more, why are humans any different?

    Thatís all we need is a simple calorie calculator for your daily allowance of calories, donít go too low with it and donít exclude any food groups and exercise throughout the week whether thatís a little walk or a marathon.

    Hi, Sneggy. I have thought about you a number of times since you posted about it before a number of weeks ago (and before the op). Sent you a pm that you may not have noticed

    Re: Slimming World

    Currently on a Keto kick.

    I piled on the pounds straight after I was vaccinated, started eating out a lot.

    Down 11 lb in 2 weeks.
    Hope to shift another 10 then maintain with calories and exercise.

    It really isn't (not healthy)..it's quite a common rate to lose at.

    Is it bollocks

    Dieticians with the NHS suggest a weight loss of a pound a week

    That's a crash diet and in the vast majority of cases people put the pounds back on , as they do with weight watchers and slimmers world, both huge money bakers

    You may have lost a shed load of weight and also others on here but if it stays off it's a rarity

    5 and a half pound in two weeks ?

    The evidence suggests that's way too fast

    Good luck though

    Exactly

    Intake of food

    Intake of calorie heavy food

    Exercise

    Acceptance of genetics ......People who are naturally muscular will shift weight more than skinny people if they use weights and eat healthily

    People who are skinny don't have that advantage so need to be very strict with what they eat

    If you are simplistically telling me a rate of 4 lb a week is in every case unhealthy then sorry we will just have to disagree. It's not average, but is not uncommon at all. As for whether it stays off or not being a rarity it's an achievement you either fail at or you achieve - that is the failure of the person's overall life skills over and above anything else. If you are looking for long term good weight/health then do the work and research in getting to that - if you have a lot to lose and don't mind losing it over a matter of years, with no rush regarding the meantime effects on your health, by all means go ahead with slow weight loss, but at the same time independent of that short term dieting for weight loss is effective and shouldn't be scoffed at or completely written off. One size certainly does not fit all.

    Good on you mate. I did Keto a year or so ago. I'm not a big bloke, 5ft 7 and was weighing in at 12st4. I really felt it around my stomach area, really tight feeling. I got down to 10st 10 in about 8 weeks. Couldn't keep it at that, but currently knocking about the 11st 2 mark, and happy with that. Good luck

    Re: Slimming World

    in my case eat general foods moderately , eat junk food moderately , only drink alcohol on weekends but the trick is regular exercise

    running and exercise hard 3 times a week for the last 5 months has seen a great improvement for me .Feeling fitter now than i was 15 years ago and don't bother even checking my weight these days just feel alot better both mentally and physically . just hope i can keep it up throughout the winter months !

    Be very careful David Lemma, you're dealing with an expert on everything here

    Well I know for a fact that dai lemma , as he's also known is not a qualified NHS dietician

    Whereas the one pound a week weight loss target is the one those very people , who surely know their stuff , preach

    Dai is also known by another name and he gives similar advice , unsurprisingly

    Both are incorrect

    That suggests that these diets don't work as you have lost a lot in 8 weeks and put a lot of it back on

    Well you are not an NHS dietician and that's what they think so you better e mail them pronto

    Short term crash and replacement diets are ineffective in that they are generally not maintained

    It's all very well losing 2 stone for a wedding but if 3 months later it's all back on then that diet is clearly a failure

    Sludge i donít agree at all.

    Depends on individual people and how itís done

    4lb a week is perfectly healthy for the body itís just whether the mind can cope

    I was thinking of Weight Watchers, not Slimming World. I don't have experience of Slimming World.
