Red day help please
Why do i find red days confusing, can someone please take a look at what i think i can eat and let me know if its ok:
Breakfast: Porridge with semi skimmed milk, banana, raisins
lunch: 3 cracked pepper ryvita, 3 light laughing cow, ham and tomato
tea: diet coke chicken(gorgeous) and savoury rice
Would this be classed as a red day
Many thanks for any advice x:rolleyes:
Hi there. Just noticed your post - on red days rice is synned so your day would be a better example of an extra easy day. On red days, potatoes, starchy veg, beans, lentils and pasta etc are all either a healthy extra or synned. Hope that helps.
Thank you so much for your reply, i have done another post for EE help could you possibly take a look at the menu i have put on that one and let me know what you think, would prefer to do red days but find it a bit confusing as to what i should eat free and hex. Many thanks in advance x
Remember red days are still allowed, I actually prefer doing them or green days as I didn't do so well trying to get 1/3 super free each meal. Good to try extra easy though, it works brilliantly for so many people
I would much rather do red days as i find pasta tends to bloat me, but i get confused as to what i can eat and healthy extras im allowed on red days, i also find im very rarely full and can just eat and eat, but i pick at wafer thin ham and crabsticks, so if i have boiled eggs on toast (b) with light marg for breakfast(3) and ham
L: salad with tuna or chicken
T: chicken. Can i therefore have rice as a hexb or would i have to syn it? I think it would be better for me to stick to EE as then i really only have to count syned stuff. X
You can't have rice as HExB on Red as it doesn't have enough fibre and it's quite high to syn it! I think it's about 6 syns per 100g on Red.
Hope that helps x
Thanks for your reply sam, but on red days can you have 227g potato and so much pasta and im sure you can have so much rice as well on a red day or am i wrong? X
Nope, no rice sadly :( EE or Green if you want rice without hefty syns :)
To be a HExB there has to be a certain % of fibre of something and rice doesn't meet it .. sadly! I do loads of red days and I'd love rice to be a HExB!! x
Thank you for your replies sam, could you let me know what you would have on red days as i want to do more red instead of all EE but clearly i get bit confused what i can have. Many thanks in advance sam for your help. X
