    Red days on SW without meat

    Hi,

    I'd read on someone's blog here about doing red days.Using the free meat analogues like the Fry's sausages, Realeat chicken lumps and, if you eat eggs, quorn products.

    I tried it and found it very limiting and didn't notice any particular difference on the scales but IIRC, this person thought it boosted her loss.

    Has anyone else tried this? If so, what was your experience?

    Thanks

    Starting yet again, I'm almost the heaviest I've ever been before. Now I am on the way to getting to my new size and this time I will stay there. This will be my fourth and LAST big weight loss. My ultimate goal is to have a healthy relationship with food and be slender for the rest of my life.

    I tried to only weigh once a week. But, no. In frustration at slow losses I followed ONLY red days for 13 days in a row. I had 1/3 SF at each meal and only snacked on SF. I think I'd lost half a pound by the end of that...

    Ha yes!!! immensly joyful, when did you acheive it? I bounced around with the same three or four pounds for a month or so. But now I am gutted as for no reason at all I put on 3lbs yesterday. Really no reason, I ate really well after three days of being 197 I suddenly weighed 200 again. POOP. the only thing I can think of is I ate 1 tin of instant spaggetti before bed and that shouldn't account for three pounds. Ah well, these things happen and it will go again

    So ... CCing is working for you now?
