I do SW and just cook the same meals as I do at home apart from things like chips and jacket potatoes, although can do jackets if we have electric hookup as I have a Remoska.

It also depends on what cooking facilities you will have and where you are when you're using it.

Things like spaghetti bolognaise, curry & rice, burgers in buns (although it's difficult to get wholemeal in France but obviously OK in UK).

do you find the remoska more useful than a slow cooker? i have both and my new sear slow cooker is very light. i am sure i will get the hang of cooking in a small space and being more tidy.

The wife reckons Slimming World diet pushes you towards diabetes if you're already struggling with your weight. She's eating Keto now, I can't believe the difference in her, no more craving, bingeing or mood swings. I'm missing their low calorie chocolate biscuits though. :(

I know it's not for everyone but my friend who was diabetic reversed it and is no longer diabetic after losing 4 stone.

I certainly haven't had cravings, bingeing and mood swings (other than the normal female ones!)

I wonder if she was doing it when they were still doing Red and Green days? as Green days could definitely be very carb heavy if you weren't careful. The current EE and EESP are better in that respect.

I certainly couldn't eat Keto - I'd miss my carbs too much. A meal doesn't seem complete without some carbs on the plate. Generally most of my plate is vegetables!

I'm not keen on food cooked in the slow cooker, everything just seems soggy or stringy so very rarely use it. I certainly don't take it away in the MH!

I don't use the Remoska very often as we're rarely on hook up but it is useful if you fancy a mini roast! Put chopped potatoes & veg in bottom and chicken thighs, legs or chops on top and then cook. All you need to do then is make some gravy. If we're not on hook up we can run the small Remoska from the inverter but don't like to cook anything which takes a long time like jacket potatoes from it.

The other thing I use if we're not on hook up is a pressure cooker. That is very useful for lots of meals particularly if we're away in autumn/winter when you need home cooked stews etc!

Helen has lost 3 stone with Slimming World and her diabetes has all but cleared, her latest test shows her as borderline. We only eat proper food on SW, its a balanced meal without fat, sugar and oil.
