    Smile I can't help thinking "Can Extra Easy really work?"

    Has anyone had great weight loss by doing mainly Extra Easy days? I would love to feel confident that this plan can work.

    Lots of people have. SW wouldn't have it as a plan if it didn't work. On the other hand, some people prefer the red or green plans. You have a choice.

    I have been doing extra easy since I started because I was simply too lazy to learn the red and green days plan. I figured if EE slows down or stops working for me I will put in the effort to find out about the other plans. I have not needed to bother because I have lost consistently.

    I have lost most if my weight with ee it's only the last few months I have done a few green days and that is normally when I have something vegetarian for my main meal. It does work, as other people have said just look round this forum

    the majority of people on SW use Extra Easy and see very good losses asusming they follow the plan.

    The biggest tip i can give, is that just because you can eat something in unlimited amounts, doesn't mean you should. The people who tend to have problems usually eat huge amounts of free food because it's free rather than eating smaller and more balanced meals.

    Amen to that! Sometimes we all like to think we are special cases and a plan doesn't work for us. Truth is, it might not work psychologically. Physically if we were all locked away and force fed the same amount of calorie restricted food each day, we'd all lose weight, albeit at different rates due to body composition, unless you have a rare physical disorder. I'd love to think I've broken the laws of physics and manage to get fat despite hardly eating, but I'd be fooling myself. SW only works long term if you let it change your eating habits to normal size meals, regular meals and healthy snacking only if hungry. Eating ridiculous portions or snacking or food that's really a meal will not lead to weight loss. Not because SW doesn't work, but because common sense failed.

    I started SW 3 weeks ago, and I'm doing EE. I don't know anything about the other plans.

    I was sceptical too about EE, wondering how unlimited free foods would help me to lose weight. But I followed the plan to the letter and my first week I lost 4lbs and my second 3.5lbs and got my half stone award. I was astonished, I've never been one to lose more than 2lbs a week, usually I lose 1lb a week. So to lose an average of 4lbs so far is crazy, and I feel like I've eaten too much food for a 'diet'.

    But SW isn't a diet, it's a healthy way of eating. And as others have said, because foods are free and unlimited it means that you can eat them when you are truly hungry and stop when you are comfortably full. If you comfort eat when you feel depressed for example, and not physically hungry, and keep eating until you are stuffed rather than comfortably full then you will encounter problems and weight gain.

    But yes if you get hungry at midnight then you can eat! If you get hungry in between meals you can eat! SW heavily suggest that you snack on superfree foods first ie fruits and vegetables rather than choosing synned foods straight away.

    Good luck, give the plan a go, and if you follow it to the letter then I fully expect you'll lose weight. You might get bloated/constipated initially that might mean you don't lose weight in the first week or so, but don't worry if that happens, your body will adjust.

    I only do EE it's the only plan I know being new to SW. However I have lost 3 stone in just under 4 months- so yes, it definitely works for me.
