    Am strict veggie so always on Green days. Joined 2 days ago, I am still trying to get my head around the idea that I can eat as much pasta/noodles as i want- basically carbs, and still lose weight I cant quite believe it how can this be?!! Or have i got it totally wrong? I guess the weigh in on Monday will convince me or not! diary as follows:

    HE A 250ml semi-skim Milk
    HE A 42g low fat cheese
    HE B Porridge

    Lunch - Baked Potato with cheese, beans and salad, SYN - 1tsp extra light mayo

    Dinner - tofu, rice noodle and veggie stir fry - SYN - 2tsp oil

    pineapple

    Thanks :)

    Thanks all, Natlee, we are very similar in that my start weight 10st7lb I want to get down to at least 9 stone for my wedding in November. The fact you are already down to 10 stone is really inspiring. Cherry what are the SW chips? cooked in oven?? Also Kats I wish you lots of luck, you have done it before so you know anything is possible. love Sharon xx

    basically chop potatoes into chip shapes

    boil them in a pan for about 4 or 5 minutes.

    drain the water and let the chips dry for about 10 minutes

    pre heat the oven to gas mark 9

    spray a tray with fry light put the chips on the tray and spray over them with fry light

    pop in the oven for around 20 minutes it says 45 on the slimming world website but i dont like them as crispy.

    there lovely with a quorn burger or with cheese and beans :)

    I'm a strict veggie as well so always green days for me, if you stick to the principles the plan definintely does work, although I have to admit I do weigh my pasta and rice and have between 60-90g only because I could easily eat 200g dried weight of either in one sitting! You day looked fine to me but remember that second HEB! The healthy extras are an important part of the diet as calcium and fibre are very important in a diet.
