Do you eat less carbs on red days ??
They would be synned on a red day so yes, if following the plan you'd eat less.
Thks because extra easy doesn't work for me at all I need portion control
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
Thanks... extra easy is not working for me to much carbs I think !!!! I prefare portion control ...here's hoping it works.... thanks again ?
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.
