Maybe you’ve been a member of slimming world for a while now, and you want to know a little more about things, or you may have just joined, and you want to learn more about the syn free & free foods you’re allowed to eat, in particular Muller Light yoghurts, and how many you can eat safely. Well you’ve come to the right place! I’m going to strip mullers down to the bare bones and expose them for what they really are, are you ready?
Slimming world’s going great I really can’t fault it. I’ve currently lost just over 4 stone (58lbs/26kgs), and I’m really getting into things; in particular, learning about the foods that i’m eating, and what’s in them. At first it was simply curiosity, but now it’s more of a need, I need to know what I’m putting in to my body, and what’s its doing to me.
Your body needs the right fuel
I don’t know if it’s a good thing, but I’m thinking of my body more as a machine, a machine that needs certain “fuels” to keep it running well, especially if I expect it to do things I’ve never done before. I want to be fitter, leaner and strong than ever, and for that to happen I need to make sure I’m giving my body what it needs.
Sure there’s gonna be times when I eat junk food. It’s who I am. I love food, and some of the tastiest food in the world (that I love) is unfortunately junk food. I’m not going cut that out completely, life’s too short for that and it’s simply not a realistic way to live in today’s world, is it?
On a whole all I want to do is eat as healthy as possible while being realistic, I’m not talking about those odd days off we all have, I just mean majority of the time.
So on the slimming world diet Muller Lights are classed as a “syn free food” which in theory means you could eat as many as you wanted as they have no syns. This sounds great on the surface, but something that concerns me is the amount of sugar Muller Lights contain.
Before I go any further I’d like to make it clear I’m not writing this with the intention that slimming world will allocate them syns, GOD NO! I love Muller Lights; I want to find out and share with you, what’s in them, what eating too many of them can do to us, and how many is a safe amount to eat.
Like I just said I love mullers, and I usually eat two with my lunch every day. I have been known to eat up to 6 in a day when I’m craving something sweet or I’m waiting for dinner and I don’t want to go off plan. Mullers are probably the easiest thing to grab on the go, and that’s the main reason I eat a lot of them, it’s probably the same for you, right?
Can you eat unlimited Mullers?
I finally found the poster that spurred me to look at muller lights in detail, and write this article for that matter. This poster clearly states (take a look below) you can eat an “Unlimited” amount of muller light yoghurts!
I’m not gonna spoil the rest of this article for you, but this is just crazy advice if you ask me, that’s right I’m calling slimming world out! It’s a green light for fat people to swap one addiction, chocolate for instance, for muller lights, and that’s not healthy.
10 Muller Light’s per day!
While doing a little research online to find out if there is a limit to how many mullers we should be eating it was interesting to see that there are loads of slimmers out there looking for an answer just like me, and you. I didn’t find an answer, but I was shocked to find there are some people out their eating 8-10 muller lights per day! Now I know without even looking at any stats, eating that many has got to be bad for you, hasn’t it?
