Feel Good the Weight Watchers way.

"The ‘Feel Good’ hit of the summer from Weight Watchers
Weight Watchers takes to the road to champion great tasting healthy food"

This summer Weight Watchers have taken to the road to show how eating our favourite foods and being healthy doesn't need to impact our wellbeing and happiness.
The pop-up Feel Good Café will be arriving in Leeds'  Dortmund Square 19th – 21st June (my local event) 
Weight Watchers will be serving up a scrumptious menu of tempting and satisfying dishes and snacks for any time of the day.
Feel Good Café diners can tuck into three different meals from this scrumptious menu, which has been created using Weight Watchers products available to buy in supermarkets 

Tempting sausage sandwich served on thick wholemeal bread Crunchy Love Fibre cereal
 Mouth-watering quiche, a British favourite Summertime cheese salad sandwich on thick wholemeal bread
Afternoon treats
Guilt-free mini chocolate roll delectable salted caramel ice cream sundae
Exotic Chicken Katsu Curry Comforting Macaroni Cheese

Feel good for summer with Weight Watchers’ top ten tips 
  1. Be inspired: ‘It may be an old photo or a quote but put this in a place such as on the fridge or on your phone where it will always inspire you and remind you of your goal. 
  2. Get support: Do it with a friend. Buddy up with a fellow member or, for extra Leader advice, our experts are on hand 24/7 with the new Weight Watchers Expert Chat at weightwatchers.co.uk
  3. Track: Our mix-and-match menu plan makes it easy to stay in control, but you still need to track. When you say ‘I’ll take a treat from my weekly allowance,’ make sure you do!
  4. Sip smart: Our body weight is two-thirds fluid, which means staying hydrated is key to staying healthy. Aim to drink 6–8 glasses (1.2 litres) of fluid per day - a great choice is water
  5. Get fruity: Fruit is not just essential for health, it’s also a great hunger- busting back-up if it’s a bit too early for lunch. With zero ProPoints values, there’s no reason not to munch!
  6. Be kit wise: An expensive price tag doesn’t necessarily make a pair of trainers the best ones out there. Do your research and ask a shop assistant for a proper fitting to ensure a correct fit
  7. Jot it down: Don’t have time to exercise? Then make time. Putting a regular slot in your journal to follow the fitness part of the plan will help you break through the time barrier
  8. Measure up: Jot down your waist, hip and leg measurements each week. Inches lost and your changing body shape will also spur you on
  9. Treat yourself: Banning foods will only make you want them more so treat yourself on your days off. Banish the kids, turn off your phone and savour it.
  10. Celebrate your wins: For each goal, whether it be an extra set of squats or losing a few pounds, share your great news with family or friends so they can keep you motivated.

The Leeds pop-up café will also feature a ‘selfie station’ for taking ‘feel good’ snaps with friends and family. Visitors will be asked to upload their picture with the hashtag #feelgood and invited to share how Weight Watchers has helped them feel today. Every social share through the Feel Good Café competition site will be entered into a prize draw to win 1 of 100 hampers filled with Weight Watchers goodies.
If you can’t make it down to Dortmund Square, tweet Weight Watchers at @ww_uk or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/weightwatchersuk for another chance to win a Weight Watchers hamper.
The Feel Good Café will be in the following locations this summer:

Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester: 11th – 14th June
Dortmund Square, Leeds: 19th – 21st June
Victoria Square, Birmingham: 24th – 27th June

I am super excited to be heading to Leeds and would love to hear if you are popping down and what you thought of it.
