Hi, I have just recently started Slimming World 29/3/2011. I was just wondering if anyone has any hints/tips for me?

I am a vegetarian, so I'm a green day girl and I have just stopped smoking about 3 weeks ago.

I will post my food diaries, for the past few days, can anyone tell me if I am doing this right.

Thankyou

Lisa :)

Hi Denise,

I have just bought some all bran and ryvitas, so i will be able to have these for my breakfast now with Milk, which will incorperate my hexA and hexB or crunch them up into a yogurt with fruit.

I don't really eat alot of cheese or bread, but I am going to try the SW toastie pizzas tomorrow. I have been looking at recipies that I can add them into.

As I am a vegetarian, and only on Green days, do I have to have 2 hexA and 2 hexB per day?


In regards to water, I drink alot when I am at the gym, but I tend to add LC juice into it, as i prefer the taste and drink alot more that water alone. Is this ok to do?

Thankyou for answering my post

Lisa

Hiya,

I'm veggie too and only do green. Looks like you're doing ok, but agree about the lack of Hex's. You are supposed to choose once or twice from the a's and b's. I tend to have 1 A and 2 B's.

Just a couple of thoughts -
- On wednesday you counted a Hi-fi bar as syns but I didn't see any Hexb's so do you definitely have to syn it?
- Presume your cottage cheese is fat free?
- If it's sugar free squash you're adding to your water you should be fine
- Remember that your hexb's don't have to be bread they can be cereal, cereal bars, nuts, oil, seeds, stewed fruit etc.

Other than that, it sounds as though you're getting lots of super free and doing tons of exercise which is all good. I also admire your restraint only having one piece of pizza when your friends ordered takeaways!

BTW - what's a vitality bar?!

Good luck following the plan, hope you see a good loss this week!

Hi Beegee

Thankyou for your response.

I know I need to increase my hex a and hex b. I felt like i was eating to much, and they would be extras, i didn't know how to add them in to my meals. I think I should be ok with this now.

I didn't think to use the hi-fi bar as a hexB, I will do that in the future. Yeah fat free cottage cheese, to be honest I dont really like it, but i have been putting it in SW quiche and it is beautiful, you should try it if you havent already. It is suger free squash, im glad thats ok because i drink gallons of it lol.

The night when they ordered, it was awful, it smelt soooo good. I didn't deprive myself as i would have ended up binging, I am quite proud of myself for that though :)


A vitality bar is ASDAs own brand of Alpan cereal bar. I worked it out and they are 0.5 syns each. Brilliant for a little snack at work.

I love exercising. Just recently started going to fitness classes, they are fab for motivation. Just hope it all pays off.

Congratulations with your weight loss. Do you have a food diary on here, it would be great to see a food plan of a fellow vegetarian?

Hello,

I've just gone onto red alert here as I don't know how a cereal bar can be half a syn! I've looked at syns online and it says the banoffee is 3.5 and the cranberry is 5 syns. Are they the ones you're using or am I barking up the wrong tree?! You can work them out using the 1 syn per 20 calories rule as there is no free food allowance on cereal bars - would be amazed if your bar was only 10 cals!

I don't have a diary on here I'm afraid. I always keep a paper diary of what I have and never got round to putting it all on here. Maybe I'll get round to it one day!

I'm quite a fan of the quiche too - it's far nicer than I thought it would be!

Have a good diet day!
