Thankyou, Kirstabubble! Considering I'm not going to a SW class and have only read about EE on here, I'm quite pleased with how it's working out! xx

Hi Bella

Your menus do sound good and are helping to give me some guideance! I used to do SW years ago and red and green days are conditioned into my mind so i'm really struggling to get my head around Extra Easy and how it actually works which is tough when you're not used to mixing the two together... it just seems wrong!

I will carry on reading peoples menu plans for support! :banghead:

Thanks again!

Thanks, BeckyT. I'm glad they're helping you. There's loads of information on here about Extra Easy. I'm not going to class either so I've basically used what I've found on here to get my menu plans together. Basically, the plan is this:

Eat as much free food on both Red and Green Days as you want.
Only have 1 Healthy A and 1 Healthy B per day
Make sure each meal is made up of 1/3 superfree foods
Have between 5-15 syns per day

Hope that helps xx

Hi Bella

Have you tried the chicken pasta mug shots? They are lovely! Make sure you dont put too much water in it and it will go lovely and thick and creamy

Becky - will do. No doubt i'll have one next week so i'll let you know what I think! xx

Ann-Marie - thanks! I thought splitting it down so I get non-food treats will keep me focused. I have a lot to lose and my first challenge is a long one so rather than becoming complacent, I thought the treat idea would keep me going! Hope your first weel has gone well. xx

Hi Busybee

Glad you like my plans. Extra Easy is very simple:

Have as much free food from red and green days as you like.

Have between 5 & 15 syns per day (although I spoke to someone at work today who holds SW classes and she said you should have betwen 5 & 10 in the first 4 weeks).

Only have 1 Healthy A and 1 Healthy B a day

Make sure that every meal is made up of 1/3 super foods.

How long have you been doing SW for? Are you enjoying it? xx

I did it for 6 months last year red/ green until November. Then from nov until now I put back on nearly 7 lbs - blush!!

Hubby keeps laughing at me getting so stressed about ee.

I think I struggle with breaking my habit at breakfast and lunchtime by having 1/3 superfree
I usually have porridge For breakfast and beans and potato for lunch.
