    Question Slimming World Online Newbie - some questions

    Hi I started SW online 2 weeks ago on extra easy and have a couple of questions.

    Having read a few of these forums some people seem to be suggesting that we should be switching to red/green days after some time - perhaps if weight loss stops??

    Is this right or should I stick to EE if it is working?

    If I cook with super free foods do I also have to put SF at the side of the plate (for example my beef stew yesterday was mainly tomatoes, carrots, beans, mushrooms and onions)

    Some days I also feel over full but haven't eaten my min 5 syns! I have had a few biscuits to make it up to 5 and have lost 5.5lbs so it seems to be working at the moment.

    (I have so far walked around Central Park and am a third of the way across the English Channel on Body Magic)

    Hi welcome,
    It really is up to you which plan you follow. I have lost all my weight on ee with a few green days thrown in. The advice is to start with ee as that is the easiest to follow and when you get your head round that move on to red, green if you want.

    So long as your meal is a third Superfree then it's fine wether it is on the side or actually in the meal.

    It is best to have a min of five syns to balance the diet and also so you don't feel deprived, maybe use them in your meals on spreads or sauces?

    Well done on your weight loss!

    That is great advice. Thank you. I am enjoying the food and even better with my new slow cooker to make it in :-)

    One drawback there Sara ..you'll then lose by the time it takes..

    Hope the dieting is going okay. At least you don't have too much to lose altho' that can make it harder.

    True :-)

    Yes not too much to lose. Frustrated with myself as I did get down to 9st7lb with WW just after my second son was born about 4 years ago. Popped it all back on. I did try and do WW again but just couldn't make it work. I also tried diet chef and I lost 8 lb in the first week and then we had a really hot summer and I ate too many BBQs :-)

    Another question for you lovely slimmers.

    On the healthy extra b list I can have 2 ryvitas marked S and F or 4 ryvitas marked FF! Similar thing with hibars 2 or 4.

    How can these be the same? Can I have 4 if I want? Is this just allowing me to choose a higher fibre intake? Agghhhhhh
