    Hmm, I have tried a couple of red days this week just to add variety, I did notice I felt a little more peckish that normal (I usally do green days through the week), but I kept a HEXB so I could have some potato with my main evening meal and made sure I had plenty to snack on durnig the day. Not sure how it will effect my weigh in, i'll let you know after i've been tomorrow night!

    Top tips for Red days from me are:

    Use celeriac or cauliflower to replace potatoes...I practically live off celeriac chips but you can also make mash, "roasties" out of celeriac and it's Superfree! Cauliflower mash with a LC cheese melted into it is delicious, as is cauliflower "couscous". This leaves you more options for your HEBs. OH! Forgot one - squashes..squashes are brilliant, you can make "chips" out of them, and if you can get your hands on some of the more unusual small ones you can turn them into a sort of...jacket potato which can be topped with chilli con carne (no beans though!) or bolognaise sauce and either a HEA of cheese or a blob of quark (I pretend it's sour cream!) - really filling and delicious.

    Snack on superfree first - as usual - but I do find that eating meat/fish as a snack is satisfying and keeps me from feeling hungry. Melon with ham is one of my favourites (and melon is superspeedy as a bonus).

    I do a fair few Red days, used to do just Green but recently my losses slowed right down so now I do a mix of the both each week. I make pizzas using cauliflower as the base, they're really filling and yummy. I have a lot of stir fries they tend to fill me as well. I make mash out of squash, carrots and swede, even top cottage pies with it. I think you just have to use your veg to fill you. Hope you get on well with them x
