Slimming: Secret to weight loss – home-cooking

A recent survey found that only one in four meals is home-cooked yet a local slimming expert from Ipswich says it’s easy to create healthy and delicious dinners in your own kitchen and far more effective if you want to get in shape!

Liz Torrie, who runs a Slimming World group in Pinewood Community Hall and Revolution in Ipswich says, “Often people find it difficult to lose weight because they’re not confident in the kitchen or they’re just too busy to cook so they rely on takeaways and ready meals, which are loaded with salt and fat. They might be put off slimming because they think they won’t have the time to cook healthy meals from scratch. Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated and lots of great classic meals are actually quick, simple and cheap to make at home.”

Now a new book of all-in-one recipes from Slimming World proves Liz’s point perfectly with 100 mouth-watering meals that can be made easily in just one pot and they’re sure to become family favourites fast.

Liz says, “People have so little time these days and busy lifestyles play havoc with our waistlines. Every week at Slimming World members pick up new ways of shopping, cooking and eating healthily with as little fuss as possible, and research among our members has found that they buy more fresh produce and eat less fatty food than before they joined Slimming World. Better still, they encourage their families and friends to eat more healthily too. They swap recipes ideas and let each other know about supermarket offers they’ve seen so they find they spend less money on takeaways and ready meals”.

Slimming World’s new cook book is perfect for this time of year. After the excesses of Christmas, lots of people want to lose a few pounds and the cold weather means that we crave comfort foods. The recipes in the Extra Easy All in One book include family favourites like Old-Fashion Shepherd’s Pie, Cheesy Vegetable Pasta Bake and Fast Fish Casserole which tick both of those boxes – they’re great winter warmers and great for the waistline!

Everyone’s welcome at the Pinewood Community Hall and Revolution Slimming World groups every week. The Extra Easy All in One is available in all 8,000 Slimming World groups nationwide at a price of £9.99 or from retailers priced £16.99.
