    So this year I've been rubbish at sticking to the plan (so on a separate note, I'm on the look out for a diet buddy if anyone is interested?)

    But I've been starting each day with 2 weetabix crushed up and a Muller Light on top so that I can have cheese instead of milk as my A choice. Is that right or have I magically made this synful?

    If this is ok I intend to have a baked potato (with the cheese) and a tin of beans for my lunch and an Options Hot Chocolate to suppress my urge for a Diary Milk.Then have some sort of Green plan evening meal. I'm trying to avoid meat so might as well follow the green plan although I'm not a veggie so I might have the occasional Original day.

    Repeat until bored and need a kick up the jacksie :D

    Hi hun. Yeah thats fine but you know you can have 2 x HEAs don't you as well as 2x HEBs. And n a green day you can have cheese as a B choice as well. xx

    If you are doing green then you are allowed 2 HEA and 2 HEB

    There is not a lot of superfree action going on I notice - what about fruit with your brekkie and mixing in some veggies to your beans but having half a tin instead

    You should also be using around 10 syns a day

    Yeah it's kind of hard to have veg in the day due to being at work and only a microwave to hand, that's why I mainly have my veg in the evenings. But fruit with breakfast is definitely do-able, same at lunch I guess although I do get tummy ache if I eat too much fruit and veg (grim, I know) which is part of the reason I find it so hard to eat healthily sometimes.

    I didn't realise I could have milk and cheese on a green day, what a bonus! That means I can intersperse green tea & lemon with a good old normal brew. :D

    Thanks very much.

    My first week I ended up with severe tummy troubles as I was eating a lot of fruit and veg but by the second week it had settled down fine. xx

    It really annoys me, I was a typical kid and never eat my greens. Uni changed all that and now they're the best part of a meal they play havoc with me. Will persist though. Think I'll dig out my books again and re-read the green plan pages.

    Just reading my book, Circes, wouldn't the tin of baked beans count as my superfree food with my potato?

    Hi Emma,
    Sounds perfect. I haven't posted enough to see if your on facebook. Can you see my profile? Although I've had to put it in the personal website field as it keeps saying my FB link is in the wrong format!

    I think I've added you, there were at least 3 Emma Joyce's with wedding photos :/ Either that or it could be highly embarrassing!

    No sorry, superfree is only fruit and non-starch vegetables so baked beans do not count.

    One other question. I'm following the green plan, If I can have Cheese as a healthy a or b does that mean I can have 2 lots of cheese in one day!?

    If you are doing green, you could have cheese up to 4 times a day, two As and two Bs, altho that might be overload!!!

    Excellent, thanks. That makes the range of what I can make for my evening meals much more open.

    Ok, so I'm almost half way through week one, I'm doing quite well although I'm a sugar addict so keeping the syns down is really hard. I'll have to see if having the biscuits as my morning snack stops me losing (providing I'm not unknowingly doing anything else wrong) and if they are I'll have to cut back more. I am walking for an hour nearly every day for body magic.

    Please can you have a look at what I've eaten so far and let me know if I'm being bad where I think I'm being good. I consulted the book and on a green day baked beans do have a SS by them, so I'm going by that.
