    Hi there,

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but I've not done any green or red days before. Do you need the 1/3 superfree with every meal as you do with Extra Easy? I'm a bit confused!!

    I'm trying out a green day today, does this sound ok:

    Lunch:

    Wholemeal roll (HexB1)
    2 Babybel light (2/3 HexA1)
    Bovril
    Tomatoes (1/3 superfree?)

    Supper:

    Spaghetti (or some other pasta)
    85g EL soft cheese (Tesco - is this ok?) (HexB2)
    80ml semi-skimmed milk (1/3 HexA1)
    Peppers, mushrooms, sweetcorn
    Chopped up quorn sausages
    28g parmesan (HexA2)

    I don't know whether I need the 1/3 superfree with every meal though on Green :confused:

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi Dudette,

    My understanding, which I hope is right, is that the 1/3 rule is not so strict on red/green than it is on EE. I don't follow EE and go with red/green but do try to follow the 1/3 rule anyway as it is a good habit to get into in the longer term. Also, on the advice of my consultant, consider my 1/3 to be made up from the ingredients of dishes as well as starters or fruit deserts rather than just 1/3 of fruit/veg on the side of the plate.

    Hope this helps rather than confuses things!!

    Thanks Allie! I think after 6 weeks of EE the 1/3 superfree is ingrained in my brain :) Veggies are good for bulking out meals - good for budget eating which I'm doing for the next 3 weeks :8855: xxx

    No, no such advice on red/green - however keeping up a good amount of superfree foods is never a bad thing - i know when my losses started slipping last year that after going through my food diaries (well re-starting them in fact) - and this time marking off free/superfree/heA/HeB/Syns - i was surprised how few superfree foods i was having on some days.
