    I have been living on green days since I started on SW, but I have always known about red/original days and Extra Easy, and just not fancied them so much as green.

    But today I had an epiphany ...

    Walking through the Christmas aisle in Tesco, surrounded by all that chocolate, I decided I would try a brown day :D:D

    I have no idea how this would actually help me lose weight, but then I don't know how eating all day long on green helps me lose weight either so I don't see that being too much of a problem.

    Good idea? :D

    step away from the brown stuff. It will make your tummy go funny after eating healthily. (Trust me, I know!)

    Great idea! Though I agree with Lizie2008, I had a break and felt really ill eating bad food after having eaten healthily :( But if there's a pay-out for involvement in this experiment then i'd be willing to sacrifice myself to brown days in the name of science!! :) xx

    NO NO NO!
    Brown day is BAD!
    Chocolate is bad, awful stuff so stay away!!
    Well, I have brain washed myself to believe it so it is so!
    I have only had 2 small bars of chocs in my 21 weeks of rejoining and syned them.
    Did I enjoy them? NO. They were gone in seconds and so not worth it.
    Like bread, I have totally given them up, and to tell the truth I don't miss them,as feeling good about myself and wearing nice clothes outweighs the "pleasure" of a few minutes.
    So, before having a brown day just think which is better, losing pounds or brown stuff?

    Of course you can do a brown day and be quite healthy there is:

    brown rice
    brown pasta
    brown meat
    potatoes in jackets
    brown lentils
    Home made onion soup


    and of course

    MARMITE! lol
