    You should be aiming for at least a third superfree with each meal so your lunch and dinner look okay I guess, although if I only had soup for dinner I'd be starving!

    the meat and fish is missing for "proper" EE - whilst it doesn't matter to do a red or green day on EE you are missing out on an A and B choice if you are mainly doing green days.

    Read your book hun. Start at the beginning and read it through.
    It takes a while to get used to.

    If you're doing EE try to think of the balance of each meal. You seem to be missing out on protein, so maybe add an egg to breakfast, some chicken, ham or tuna to your pasta and I'd definitely have something more substantial than soup, so you coud have an omlette or salad with some meat or fish after it.

    If your not eating a great deal of meat or fish then you'd be better off on GREEN days. That way you get " HEA and 2 HEB's
    If you still wanted a little bit of meat you could use a HEB for some.
    I LOVE green, SW wedges and chips
