    Extra Easy First Timer

    Hi, today is my first day and so far so good so just want to keep a diary to keep me motivated and on track. Thanks for reading, appreciate any feedback as still getting my head round the food optimising stuff. Note I didn't have a healthy extra a choice as I don't like milk at all. I do like cheese and have stocked up on the mini babybels to use for this purpose. Wondered if the yogurt would cover today's calcium requirement though anyway? What do you reckon?

    Breakfast 0% fat yeo valley yogurt with 1 banana and frozen berries
    Snack apple
    Lunch spaghetti hoops (400g tin) on 2 slices wholemeal toast (from a 400g loaf) and a Fry's chocolate cream bar (10 syns)
    Snack orange
    Dinner lean minced beef (5% fat) cooked with garlic, frozen carrot, celery & onion, tin of chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and wholewheat pasta
    Snack 2 bananas
    Drinks 1 litre water & 1 litre sugarfree blackcurrant squash & 1 can diet coke

    Good luck :-) I would just say that it is advised that you have 1/3rd superfood son your plate at each meal... You didn't at lunch... Just something to aim for :-)

    Thanks CheekyChick81, yes I will be trying better with the 1/3 superfood. I wasn't sure about the lunch as it seemed unusual to put veg or salad with spaghetti hoops on toast lol but I read in book it says that you don't have to necessarily add it to a healthy extra meal. I took the toast to be my hexb.

    Am thinking of having jacket potato today at lunch and putting salady stuff with it as well as tuna but will be posting today's menu up when all done this evening. Thanks for taking the time to read, it's nice to get feedback

    Thanks CheekyChick81, I will try harder with the 1/3 superfree today. I must admit the spag hoops on toast was a quick meal and I was at a bit of a loss as to what to put with it as I didn't really fancy salad on the side but then I read in the optimising book that if you have a healthy extra meal then you don't have to add the superfree unless you fancy it so it said the toast would be the hexb already built in with the control. I think I read that right but of course that's why I'm posting on here as it's nice to have feedback from others doing the same thing and help eachother out with queries. Will post today's menu tonight once all done.

    Yeah that is right I think... Just from experience I have found my losses to be better and I'm fuller and pick less when I eat more super free. I have just rejoined so talking from past experience... 2nd weigh in today... Have a good day :-)

    Hiya, would coconut milk be ok? Where can I look up queries like this do you know as it's not in the optimising food book. I'm doing this myself as I had signed up to the online club last year but never started so cancelled the online so just using the book now and this forum. Thanks

    Funnily enough I was just studying my books! As a hex a you can have 600mls alpro coconut drink. If you're not gonna use all 600mls, halve it and have half a cheese allowance elsewhere. X

    Lol I keep going through the book all the time as frightened to make a mistake. Thanks for the info, my book is from around April 2014, do they update them a lot do you know as my one lists whole, semi and skimmed, goats, sheep, soya, rice milk, Arla lactofree dairy drink but no mention of Alpro coconut.

    Yeah mine are 2015, they do update and change every year I think. I only have the free branded foods and low syn snack books. Really handy to have when doing the food shop!
