    cringe at people who actually pay for fad diets, rather than do some research. losing weight isnt rocket science

    if calories in<calories burned, you will lose weight

    Its not actually a fad diet. Its not a diet at all actually. Its just different way of eating. No calorie counting, no weighing food. A diet is depriving yourself of the things you like. Ie chocolate. I still eat chocolate.

    Regardless, If I ate what I wanted within the slimming world parameters, I would still gain weight.

    Not really, I eat what I want in Slimming world and I lost 2 stone in 5 months. I still eat whatever I like at the weekends off plan, and I haven't put any weight back on.

    I didn't start this thread for negative comments guys, I started it for people who are actually interested.

    nice comments only please

    a diet isnt that at all, you can still eat chocolate on a diet, providing your total calories consumed is less than expended.

    It wasn't a negative comment, it was thinking broadly about a 'diet'.

    Of course you can lose weight on it, however it is classed as a fad diet due to poor behaviour habits.

    i.e. inability to reverse diet, lack of true diet knowledge.

    I have a really good PDF on diets that is worth a lot of money to buy if you would like me to email it you?

    No that's cool I appreciate your comment, every one has their own opinions on these type of things I guess it just depends what works best for each individual. SW works well for me and my partner.

    I wouldn't agree that it has poor behaviour habits? What would you say they were?
    If anything it actually promotes healthier eating I would say. It encourages to eat more fruit and veg by its '1 third' portion control rule.

    Either way, im really happy with it and how its going because I really don't feel that I am 'dieting' as such. Ive tried the 5:2 diet and hated it. I constantly felt hungry. But with SW I can eat until I feel full as long as I am eating the right things I wont put on weight.

    I loosely follow it, sticking roughly to the parameters of it but then also fitting in my daily caloric targets etc. I know the plan is aimed at getting people to eat at a caloric deficit without having to do any of that scary math stuff that a lot of dieters tend to shy away from, but I'm just nerdy when it comes to having to know the nutritional info for everything.

    It's not really a diet, per sé. When people talk about "going on a diet" it's usually a thing with a specific time frame, this is one that sees itself as a lifestyle in that you're meant to maintain it and not just stop it when you've hit your targets. Quite the opposite of a fad diet in fact. It works well for most people who fall within a certain range. If you're reasonably active, at least moderately overweight and don't have a massive appetite its easy to get good results with it.

    More like reduce the portions sizes/calories. I can eat Mc Donalds/Chocolates if I want to reduce weight regularly if I want, as long as the calories don't put me over my caloric maintenance level [the amount of calories i need to maintain my weight.
    Dieting is a numbers game.
