    Help needed for Success Express day please

    Hello to you all,
    I really need to start posting on here as all I have done since becoming a member is just loiter about looking at other people's posts.

    Here is my (FIRST) post then.

    I lost over 1 1/2 stone at SW but then have put almost all of it back on! I was advised by SW Tracey that I should try the Success Express over a couple of days this week and I have chosen today as one of them.
    I had for breakfast a Muller Light yoghurt with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. Thumbs up to that!!
    Just wondering how I would go about eating my Sunday roast dinner.
    Where do I stand on the meats, vegetables and anything else? I normally have potatoes, swede, parsnips, peas, carrots, brussel sprouts but do not have gravy! What do I serve to me from all this to fill me up?

    Thanks in advance, and sorry if I am being a nuisance.

    Parsnips, pots, peas are all free not super free foods. Try having cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels carrots and swede so all super free (and all speed foods too) therefore you have naturally made at least 2/3 of your plate super free. You of course can have a 1/3 of meat/potatoes too.

    I haven't done a success express this time round, but long ago (yep I've been fighting that long!) I did, I used to have butternut squash mash, not potatoes ect

    good luck

    Success express basically goes like this:

    meals are 2/3 SF and 1/3 free so reverse from a normal day. Snack on SF only and you can have 1 or 2 of your HE's. Any syns must be taken to have the highest syn value for example if you have low fat super noodles you have to take highest value which is whatever the syn value would be on a red day. So for your roast today you need a third of meat and pots and then 2/3 of your plate needs to be veg

    hope this helps

    You don't need to use Heb for the chicken because it's a free food. On SE you can mix the free foods from red and green.
    7 stone lost, now at target

    That is correct you have free foods (1/3 plate inc chicken) then 2/3 Superfree
    2a and 2b choices then syns up to 15 but if they have a higher vaLue on one day you have to use that value

    So why does it say that it is the B choice in the book?
    It will be free on an original day.

    Because it a HExB on a green day. On Success Express anything that's free on one of the plans is free on a Success Express day. Meat is free on a red/original day ergo it's free on SE.

    Meat free on SE even if you are doing it on a Green choice??
    Why does it say in the book as a B choice for 70g of chicken?

    Sorry if being a nuisance but I thought I had it in my head and now??? The chicken side has totally threw me!

    I see where the misunderstanding is now. You don't choose green or red on a Success Express day. It was, I suspect, designed to give a boost to the extra easy plan and so, if something is free on extra easy it will be free on SE. Where it differs from EE is in the proportion of Superfree to free foods and in how you count Syns. Whilst many foods - ketchup, crisps etc. - have the same Syn value on all plans, some things don't and in this instance you count the highest Syn value.

    I confess I don't have a Success Express book - only the food optimising book. I've always followed the information on the SE sticky on this forum which starts with details of the plan. It says quite clearly that you can choose free food from the green AND red plans, so if it's free on one of those plans, then it is free on SE. There are menus on the sticky which give ideas. I notice that at least two other people on this thread have also said that the meat is free.

    As your consultant has recommended you follow this, then I suggest you contact her and seek clarification.
