We're delighted you're interested in following Scottish Slimmers' fantastic Classic Checks Plan and losing weight online. PEP Made Easy uses our unique and simple-to-follow Checks system which makes losing weight enjoyable - and easy!
An online Daily Checker for counting Checks and tracking what you eat
With Scottish Slimmers' Classic Checks Plan, every food has a Check value (1 Check is approximately 25 calories). When you join, your Daily Checks Allowance is set automatically for you based on your current weight. To lose weight, you simply need to make sure you don't exceed your Daily Checks Allowance each day.
To make it really easy to keep track of your Checks, you simply enter what you have eaten into your online Daily Checker and it automatically adds up how you are doing against your Daily Checks Allowance.
You will find the foods you love to eat in our huge food database which contains over 160,000 products with images, making it fast and easy to find the food you're looking for. To add a food to your Daily Checker, select the serving size and add it. It's that easy.
Your Daily Checks Allowance can be spent on meals and other foods - it's up to you what you choose! But in addition to losing weight, we know you want to stay healthy and feel good. You also have a weekly allowance of Checks that can be used at any time over 7 days.
Some foods are so packed with goodness that you should eat them every day to make sure you don't miss out on essential nutrients. We call these foods Every Day Bonus (EDB) foods - and the bonus is that they do not have to come out of your Daily Checks Allowance. Your online Daily Checker will track them automatically for you.
Keep your Daily Checker up to date at all times via your iPhone. A barcode scanner lets you add foods in just two clicks, or search by typing in. Photos of food help you quickly find what you ate.
Calculate the Check count of your home cooked meals and recipes and save for future use. See at a glance how many Checks you have left for the day on the App homepage icon.
Enjoying great-tasting, good-for-you food as you lose weight is what Scottish Slimmers is all about and, as an Online member, you can enjoy all the Classic Checks Plan recipes - and hundreds more!
We know you're busy so the meals are simple to make - using real food and easy-to-follow recipes. There are meals for one, meals for sharing, meals for the family, meat-free meals - meals for everyone's tastes, budgets and cooking skills!
If you choose a Plan meal, you simply press a button to add a serving to your Daily Checker and track your Checks.
You have a flexible weekly allowance of Checks over and above your daily Check allowance called Flexichecks. You can use this weekly allowance over 7 days or if you have a special occasion coming up, then you might like to use them for socialising or spread them over the weekend.
The way it works is we add up your daily checks and once you go over your daily allowance we start to use the weekly Flexicheck pot. Your daily checks allowance begins again the next day. Your used weekly Flexichecks will be deducted from your total as the week goes on.
Your online Daily Checker works it all out for you - all you need to do is keep to the Daily checks plus your weekly Flexichecks.
