I love Slimming World because it's still the best value around - join today for half price membership

Slimming World... Takeaways are still on the menu!

A recent survey has found that the average Brit now spends £110 on takeaway meals every month which amounts to around 12 takeouts a month.

Lots of eating plans mean waving goodbye to our takeaway favourites - not Slimming World!

- Sharon Baldwin from Halifax lost 13st 7½lb and discovered a love of cooking: "I enjoy making 'fakeaway' versions of my favourite takeaways like pizza, chicken chow mein and beef curry."

- Emily Brackett's 2st 4lbs weight loss reshaped her relationship with food: "Instead of takeaways, I made my own version of Slimming World curries and nobody noticed they were 'healthy' versions".

Fish and chips on a Friday night, pizza with friends, a curry in front of Saturday night TV... With a little Slimming World magic these tasty dishes are not only sumptuously satisfying; they also fit in perfectly with our weight loss journey... we've got three home-cooked takeaway favourites below (and they’ll save ££s compared to the home-delivered versions!).

  • Chicken Tikka Masala
    This dish is a takeaway classic and there’s no need to stop enjoying this spicy favourite while slimming. It uses fat-free natural yogurt to provide the creamy taste without the calories.

  • Chinese sweet and sour pork.
    If you love Chinese food, this dish is perfect for you. The rich tangy sauce goes great with the noodles and delicious pork, all for only 1 Syn!

  • Fish and Chips.
    This delicious fish dish will save you over 30 Syns compared to the chip shop variety! It's delicious and is sure to give you that Friday feeling - dive in...
