    Guidance on Extra Easy needed for returning SW Slimmer

    Hi folks, I have come back to SW after 6 years, when I lost 6 stones on Green Days (as I was vegetarian then, but not now)

    I have joined online and am trying to follow Extra Easy and I just can't get my head round it.

    The premise, as i understand it is you can have any free foods on Extra Easy if a third of your plate is SuperFre foods - and the Super Free Foods could be included in the dish, so a chilli with that has onion, mushrooms and peppers in it. Is that right?

    If that is, how does snacking work? I would often make microwave crisps with potatoes, or a bowl of Pasta and Sauce for a snack - can you do that on Extra Easy - how does that work?

    I am confused so please help!!

    Welcome Iain

    What is Extra Easy?

    Extra easy is the new plan introduced in January 2009 to celebrate Slimming World's 40th birthday.
    You can think of EE as a hybrid of Green and Red. You follow it in exactly the same way with a few slight changes:

    • Anything that is free on Red OR Green is free on EE.
    • You have ONE healthy extra A and ONE healthy Extra B. You can choose from either of the Red and Green healthy extra lists.
    • The number of syns you have stay the same (between 5-15 more info below). The only difference is you take the lower syn value. If something is 6 syns on Green and 3 on Red, you count 3 syns on EE.
    • It is advised that you fill your plate with 1/3 superfree foods (see above) at each meal. It is not essential, but is highly recommended.
    • You must fill 1/3 of your plate with with superfree foods (i.e. fruit and veg) at each meal. (Slimming World FAQ's)

    Hope that helps

    Extra easy does have its own book because there are differences. For instance you can have cheese as a 'b' choice on green but not on the other two plans if you see what I mean! Lol!
