    Hi

    I just wondered if everyone fills their plate with 1/3 vege on extra easy? I am not the best at eating veg and was wondering if everyone does this and if not, if you still have good losses?

    Thanks!

    Yes, yes and yes again! I also do it when on red and green days and, yes, it will give you the best losses as you are reducing your intake of the higher calorie foods.
    There must be something you like? Just eat the veg you do like, or have a side salad if you like that. Or follow with fruit salad as a last resort.
    Veg is an important part of a balanced diet so you should try to add some or include them in recipes - for example, tinned tomatoes, onion and carrot in a bolognaise all count towards your third superfree.

    When I originally started SW EE only recomended 1/3 of your plate super free as apposed to now being compulsory so I've never got into the 1/3 superfree thing.
    Having said that although I pretty much ignore it at breakfast I probably have more than a third at tea time.
    My hubby is hard work to get to eat veggies but he like things like fried onions and peppers (fry light) and sauces made with tomatoes so your getting veggies without feeling like your just eating a load of veggies on your plate...
    Oh and still have losses without 1/3 but I expect they'd be better if I was good!

    When I started the plan, it wasn't always completely 1/3 superfree but always something superfree on my plate (often in the sauce) however as time has gone on I have increased this and almost always have 1/3 superfree at least on my plate. I think to start with I just didn't want to eat that much superfree (it was always what I knew I was supposed to eat but didn't want to particularly when I was ravenously hungry) but now I've realised that I can still have big meals of carbs if I want to, I don't need to as much and am happy to top up with the superfree. However it will definitely make your losses better if you do and will help to limit your portion sizes.

    Good luck.

    I've only been at SW for a week and tbh i'm finding it quite hard to fill my plate with 1/3 super free at breakfast and lunch. I do snack on fruit a lot so i'm hoping this is making it up and it still leaves me less hungry at meal times.

    my biggest saviour for helping give me my third superfree is the cheapy fresh stir fry bags in the supermarkets.

    asda do one for 50p. Co-op do one for 90p. I use these with mugshots and l/f supernoodles. I use fry light and stir fry half a bag and mix into the mugshot/supernoodles. Homemade soups are a brill way of getting in loads of extra veggies too.

    yep I always have a 1/3 superfree, sometimes more than a 1/3, but then I love my veg and fruit. I could eat a plate of roasted vegetables just on there own and love stews, casseroles etc with heaps of veg added.

    If you don't eat the third free then you should really leave a third of your plate empty and not fill it with potato meat pasta rice etc. The idea is that you will get less calorific foods on your plate if it is full of low calorie vegetables. Having fruit after, will just add to your intake rather than substituting the foods with vegetables if that makes sense.
