    Hello :wave_cry: I've been doing SW for 3 weeks this Wednesday - it's the first time I've done it.

    I've been doing EE as I just can't get my head around original/green days! However, I'm worried that my wonderful loss of 8.5lbs over 2 weeks will slow right down if I keep doing EE.

    Does anyone have an idiot's explanation for original/green days? Or is it basically that whereas (for example) on EE I can have unlimited meat with my pasta, on a green day I can still have it, but there's a set amount and it's a healthy extra?

    Am confoooosed!!:cry::sigh:

    If you like EE (and it obviously works for you) stick with it! I have done it since it came out and it works just as well as red/green if you do it properly

    No point in confusing yourself unnecessarily

    I'd agree.
    If you're enjoying EE then why the need to change?

    in essence on a red day it's unlimited lean meat with 2 x HEB of pasta, potatoes etc and on green it's a reverse unlimted pasta, rice, spuds with with 2 x HEB of meat...ish!

    Thank you Abbysmum! I think I've got it, it just seems restrictive compared to EE!

    I do like EE and it fits in with my DH and DS so well, I'm just worried I'll stop losing...

    Why not stick with it while its working, if you do feel its stopped working then you can try red or green :)

    You do get to have 2 HEBs and 2 HEAs on the other plans though so it depends whether you prefer to have more meat or more bread/cereal/milk/cheese etc. But I agree, if it ain't broken why mess with it!
