    If you are doing EE my understanding is that you need to pad out your meals with one third fruit or veg. So depending on how much later after you had your omelette you had your grapefruit this may count ... hopefully someone will come along and confirm this for you.

    Same again for your tea ... you need to have some fruit or veg :)

    You may find yourself a bit hungry with such big gaps between meals - don't forget to give yourself a treat ;)

    Last but not least, maybe a bit more fluid? ... And don't forget to syn your sugar ;)

    If you are not a fruit/veg eater you are better off following the Green or Red day plan.

    Sugar is 1 syn per level teaspoon :)

    Why not take a look at some food diaries for some examples of Green and Red days?

    I have exactly the same problem, cant believe someone else is the same as me!!! I love fruit too but also struggle with veg, dont like salad so was finding lunches on EE very difficult. The rule of thumb with EE is fill a third of your plate at every meal with veg, or fruit. OK fruit fine with many meals but when it comes down to say meat and potato you would obviously have veg. I struggled so much my c told me to have some veg soup before my meal but I didnt want that every day. In the end I just decided to do red and green days, and this suits me fine. You also have extra H Es on these plans. Hope this helps. Try to drink at least 1.5 litres of water a day as well. Sweetner is free by the way.

    If yr doing EE how do you go about filling your plate with one third veg if you dont like it? Just interested and so pleased found someone else with similar taste buds to mine. We are so in the minority ha ha

    Water is better than fruit juice for some reason. I drink the sparkling water, I find that more palatable

    Yes well that is what I would also have becca but my c told me I must fill my plate with a third of superfree food at every meal for the plan to work, that is why I changed to red and green as I just could not do that, even though I love fruit. I did a food diary for 4 weeks and she told me to eat more veg even though I did try to have some veg most days. You may find eventually that you are better on the red and green plans. Your food above would suit a green day perfectly and you can have extra HEs. Just a thought, but I like you struggle with veg. And that isnt easy is it?
