    i do a mix of all 3 but find i lose most on red but trying to get the hang of EE. made a syn free curry with veg and chicken and spices and it is yummy and really filling. my other fave at the minute is bacon, poached egg, mushroom, tomatoes and beans for breakfast mmmmm.

    i get bacon from heron, i dont know if you have one near you but they normally do packs for 1 pound, and i just do it over 2 days and bulk up on everything else. i got some nice thick cut bacon from asda this weekend and it was on offer-not sure how much but cos its thick cut i tend to use less. i could easily eat a pack of bacon too haha. well im going to havae a red day tomorrow and tuesday cos its weigh night on tuesday and i want to give myself the best possible chance of losing something, i went a bit wild last night was at a wedding and had fish chips and mushy peas, and cake and lager lol, but have been really good around it so hoping ive managed to maintain or even lose a little bit. the only thing i havent had much chance to do is exercise as ive been so busy but does a couple of hours dancing count as good exercise??

    Lol I'm sure that will count!
    I'm officially back on sw 100% tomoz and starting back with an ee day. Also going to do either 30 day shread or zumba on Wii.

    I find Iceland cheap for Bacon. Big packs for £3 but you get about 16 slices. I too can go through a pack of Bacon no probs!

    Ok, count me in. Lets hope that having to answer to someone will spur me on when i have my picking head on.. normaly starts on a friday and ends on a sunday afternoon lol. Thing is, weigh day is monday morning for me. Been doing abit of reading on hear and found its a good idea to do red days afew days before weigh in so im going to try that this week.

    going to start tomorrow with a red day as I fancy a burger for dinner and diddnt weigh them before I made them.

    Also, love ham salad sandwiches, absolutly adore them so might have one for lunch ever day this week

    What about a syn free quiche? I use Bacon to line the bottom and then put in milk and egg with prowess, onions, keel, chopped Bacon and sprinkle a bit of low fat cheese in too.

    It is using hex but I find it helps between lunch and tea when I need a snack to keep me going. I think you can use cottage cheese or quork so you don't use a hex but I'm not keen on either.

    You can make sw crisps!

    Peel a potato and the peel thin long strips of potato, spray them with fry light, then you know the microwaveable Bacon trays? Pop the potato strips on there and microwave til crisp.

    Mum told me that one and they are yummy!! You can sprinkle salt or spices etc on to create flavour. You can also buy a kids toy from aegis that slices potato to make crisps!
