    Healthy Extras explained

    Hi Everyone

    I done slimming world a few years ago and am now trying to do it again.

    Could someone give me an overview of the healthy extra options? I think they have changed since I done it.

    • How many of each A&B can I have?
    • Examples of A's
    • Examples of B's


    Thanks in advance for your help

    Jess

    Hi I see this was posted a week a go so you've probably found out by now but thought I'd reply anyway.
    Are you following extra easy or red and green days?
    On EE you can have one A and one B choice.
    On red/green you can have 1or2 A's and 2 B's.

    Example of A choices:
    Milk:
    Skimmed 350ml
    Semi skimmed 250ml
    Whole 175ml

    Cheese:
    30g: cheddar, double Gloucester, emmental, Gouda, Red Leicester
    45g mozzarella, feta
    75g reduced fat/ light soft cheese
    5 laughing cow light or 6 extra light
    2 babybel or 3 light

    Examples of b choices:
    Cereals:
    40g Kellogg's all bran
    35g bite size shredded wheat
    35g porridge oats

    Bread:
    60g of any wholemeal roll or bread
    2 slices of bread from a (small) 400g loaf or 1 slice from an 800g loaf

    4 ryvita dark rye/ original
    30g bag of ryvita minis any flavour
    2 weetabix
    1 or 2 alpen light bars
    1 Special K chewy delight bar

    Hope that helps a bit x

    Are there any HEX B's I can use that are not cereal or bread based? I have a wheat intolerance and stay well clear of anything 'grainy!'. I seem to recall that Olive Oil is a HEX B, but i'm not sure if this is still the case..?

    Thank you
    Tara

    You can have 1tbsp of ex virgin olive oil
    There's also nuts you can have: 20 whole shelled almonds, 6 whole Brazils, 12 whole cashews, 20 hazelnuts, 15 peanuts just to name a few. There's soups and cereals bars too? X
