I thought it might be useful to define a few Slimming World acronyms that are seen quite commonly on blogs and forums, for any new people that might not be sure what they mean.
|EE||Extra Easy – the name given to the standard Slimming World food optimisation plan|
|HEA / HXA / HEXA||Healthy Extra A – your measured daily allowance of dairy (milk, cheese, etc.)|
HXB / HEXB
|Healthy Extra B – your measured daily allowance of fibre (bread, cereals, crackers, etc.)|
|IMAGE||Individual Motivation And Group Experience – sometimes called IMAGE Therapy – the guided discussion that happens in group when the consultant goes from person to person|
|NSV||Non Scale Victory – an improvement or benefit of weight loss that doesn’t show on the scales, like an improvement in your health, dropping a dress size, or being able to do things that weren’t possible before|
|PAT||Personal Achievement Target – your self-set target weight. It is recorded by the consultant on your behalf, and comes up on the tablet when you weigh-in.|
|SOTM||Slimmer of the Month – given out on the last week of the month to the person in class who lost the most weight in that month|
|SOTW||Slimming of the Week – award given to the person in class who lost the most weight (excludes new members and those who gained in previous week)|
|SP||Speed Protein – a variation on the food optimisation plan where you only eat Speed and Protein foods, and no Free foods – meant to boost weight loss by removing carbs from your diet|
|SYNS||Short for ‘Synergy’|
I’ll add to this list as other ones occur to me. If you know of any I’ve missed, feel free to add them to the comments.
