    The add a meal week means going up a step to the 810 plan for a week (i had to do this week 14 - I slipped it by 2 weeks as I didn't want to eat over xmas/newyear). basically its still your 3 shakes a day and in simple terms white meat and leaves should be green. the list from the booklet is:

    250 g palin cottage cheese (5% fat)
    325 reduced fat Cottage cgees(less than 2 % fat)
    175 g chicken breast without skin/fat
    275 g white fish fillet - eg cod/haddock
    260g tinned tuna (in water drained)
    190g fresh tuna steak
    275g quorn pieces/mince (not the sausages as they have extra stuff in apparently)
    250g prawns
    2 large eggs
    210 regular or 400g firm tofu

    All cooked without frying - so steamed, boiled,grilled, baked etc. you can add herbs and spices, curry powder,(no salt) , balsamic vinegar fat/calorie free dressings.

    then you choose 3 tablespoons of

    green salad leave such as rocket, lambs lettuce, watercress, little gem lettuce etc
    celery cucumber or red radishes
    courgettes, marrow, kale,turnip tops,broccoli. caulifower or any cabbage, mushrooms
    Chinese leafy grees such as pak choi or chinese cabbage

    These are limited as they contain some carbs.

    Also allowed284ml of skimmed milk (to add to tea and coffee) and the normal 2.25L of water

    I was really worried about it - was sure I would gain - but still managed to lose 3 lbs.

    Have fun and enjoy it.

    basically thats it - no potoatoes, rice, past, carbs or fruit.

    Doesnt look like much but you can make some lovely meals with it.

    setas has it spot on :) your CDC should give you a booklet that explains it all before you start .
    I have just moved up to 810 as my BMI is 25 now and its a great plan , its amazing what yummy concoctions you can make with thefood you are allowed !! And the losses are an average of 3lb a week so not much different to SS :)

    enjoy :)
