    They would be synned on a red day so yes, if following the plan you'd eat less.

    Red days are good for carb control. You can have 200g new potatoes or 230g baked potato both in skins as your healthy extra b choice. So you don't have to go without you just get limited portions but these are enough when you are eating plenty of meat and fish.

    Pasta and beans/peas are also a HEB choice but you'd need to look them up as amounts vary depending on what you have. Rice has to be synned though.

    I have good losses when I do red because of the structure being a little more strict than Extra easy. They are really filling too so I feel like I don't use as much syns on then too xxx Sent from my iPhone using MiniMins

    You can still have carbs as your healthy extra B's - I tend to have bread and cereal bars or porridge for my healthy extra B's on a red day, I don't find I miss pasta or potatoes too much.

    I prefer red days if I'm honest! I think it's because otherwise I'd eat lots as I'm rubbish at portion control! X

    Why not do EE but limit your carbs more? Thats what I try to do as cant be bothered with the weighing hassle on a red day. I try to have one carb free meal a day

    I prefare HEB on red days.. instead of just eating huge amounts of pasta & potatoes on EE I've had bread today and I'll have 35 g wholemeal pasta later with bolognes

    Personally I like to mix up green, red and EE days, on the weeks I have a right mix match I tend to always lose. But thats the great thing about SW we have basically three plans to choose from.

    Me too! I decide what I'm having for my evening meal and then decide whether to have a Red, Green or EE day.
