Kick-start your summer slimdown

Get sunshine-ready sooner with our week’s worth of super-satisfying meal and snack ideas

LET’S GET STARTED >>

Tuck into 7 days’ worth of simple and filling Extra Easy breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Just follow the days in any order and feel free to repeat any you really loveasdasd

When cooking, trim all fat off meat and remove skin from poultry. Use low-calorie cooking spray for frying (only brands with one calorie or less per spray are Free). You’ll find them in the cooking oils aisle at the supermarket

Make the most of hunger-busting Free Foods. These are foods you can eat in unlimited amounts and include nearly all fresh or frozen fruit and vegetables; lean meats, poultry and fish; beans and pulses; cooked dried couscous, pasta and rice, and many fat-free yogurts. Swap sugar for sweetener and pick diet soft drinks, too

Also enjoy a portion of wholemeal bread or cereal each day. We call this a Healthy Extra – and to keep things simple, we’ve built your bread or cereal Healthy Extra into each day’s menu

Choose a Healthy Extra portion of milk or cheese each day, too. Pick from 350ml skimmed milk, 250ml semi-skimmed milk, 30g full-fat or 40g reduced-fat hard cheese. If having cheese, use skimmed milk in drinks and count ½ Syn (see right) per dash

Foods that aren’t Free have a Syn value – treat yourself to around 10 Syns each day. Use these for extras like ketchup (1 Syn per level tbsp), or favourite luxuries such as crisps, wine or chocolate. You’ll find an idea on each page, or see your Food Optimising book, available from group
