    Yes, if you're doing extra easy you need to eat a third superfree (non starchy fruit and veg) with every meal.

    You need to add 1/3 superfree to each meal - Sweetcorn doesn't count as superfree.

    I find it easier to put the superfree on the plate before anything else, then you know you're getting enough and it stops you putting too much free food on your plate. (not that there are limits on the amount of free food you can eat, but the purpose of superfree is to control your portions)

    Also, make sure you get a decent breakfast as your body needs more than a yoghurt and some grapefruit to get going. I don't like to eat too early, so have mine at my desk in the office - works for me!
