Over a decade ago, I started on a weight loss journey and picked Slimming World as the plan that most suited my lifestyle. Slimming Eats began as a place to record my journey and share all my recipes and while doing so has grown to a huge database of recipes that so many of you love and use daily for your own weight loss journeys. I never expected it to receive the love and support it has.
Unfortunately, I have been contacted by Slimming World and it has been requested that I remove their trademarked terms including syns and syn values from my website. These were only included for Slimming World members' benefit and in my opinion, used fairly and with their full knowledge. I have always stated that these syn values were an estimate to assist with choosing a recipe and that my readers should calculate syn values themselves using the official tools, as ingredients can vary by brand.
Obviously I respect their wishes and will begin this process immediately.
As there is a huge quantity of recipes to remediate, this process will take place over several months, so you may still see some terms until the process is complete.
I would like to reassure all my readers that I will still be continuing with Slimming Eats and my recipes will not be changing (other than outlined above), I will still be creating all those healthy and delicious recipes that you know and love. I extend my gratitude to all my readers for their unwavering support throughout the years and really hope you will continue to use Slimming Eats.
Thank you so much,
As there will likely be a lot of questions as to the impact of this on Slimming Eats, I have attempted to answer some likely questions below.
There will be NO impact to the recipes, they will not be changing and they will still be available via the website as normal. The only changes will be to remove Slimming World’s trademarked terms including syns and syn values.
Use the Syns calculator on the Slimming World website or ask your group consultant for assistance.
This will start immediately but will take some time to complete as there are over 1000 recipes to remediate.
All Slimming Eats recipes are suitable for many healthy eating plans, be that Slimming World, Weight Watchers, calorie counting or otherwise, so nothing will change in this regard. I will not however be able to provide any Slimming World values going forward.
There’s nothing for you to do other than keep using my website, books and visiting my social media. Thank you for all the support over the years, it means a lot to me.
