    Extra Easy: Health Extra B nuts

    Does anyone use nuts as their HeB? Thought I would give it a go this week to see if it speeds up weigh loss rather than having my usual bread or cereal bars.

    Says we can have 20 almonds so trying that today.

    Anyone else tried this and got results?

    I haven't really that much but I'm going to start to!

    I tend to do quite a few red days so always have an extra HExB which I often don't use, or find myself having an extra cereal bar in the evening to make up for it.
    I'm going to try using extra virgin olive oil as my HExB or almonds a lot more - I love them and used to snack on them all the time!

    Health Extra B nuts

    Yes I thought about maybe using the oil too. I've just had my allowance of 20 almonds and they were quite satisfying! Will be nice with fruit and yogurt to give it some crunch! X

    I didn't realise you could have nuts as your HEB unless you were on the green plan? is this only EE or can you do it on the red plan too?

    Treat target: 10st 13lbs - 3lbs until I am under the elusive 11st mark. Yay smashed it (8th November 2013) I bought my treat today (29th November 2013): a gorgeous size 10 red dress

    Interim Target: 10st 7lbs - I want to get here asap! Think I will be quite comfortable then with my clothes etc Yay achieved! (10th February 2014) Came in under at 10st 5lbs

    BMI Target - 10st Yay did it! (12th May 2014) Bang on it! Up 3lbs on this after a month not 100% on it but hoping to get back to 10st asap!

    Final Target: 9st 7lbs - 10lbs to go!

    Extra Easy: Health Extra B nuts

    No it doesn't look like you can on red. Probably because of the fat content and you get enough fat from the extra meat you would eat on red? That's all I can think of x

    Extra Easy: Health Extra B nuts

    Yes you can on EE according to the book not sure of all the different types but I know you can have 20 hazelnuts or 20 almonds. The others are smaller amounts than that so be careful. my favourite is 0% Greek yogurt with chopped banana, blueberries and 20 hazelnuts xx
