    Hi all

    I seem to have a mental block where healthy extras are concerned!
    Can someone please let me know if I can have 2x alpen light bars and 4 ryvitas as my two lots of hxb in one day?

    thank you!

    the 2 alpen lights are a HEB choice hun, which Ryvitas are you having? as I know the fruit crunch (used to be muesli) ones are 2 for a B choice

    Yes, you can have 2 x Alpen light as 1 HeB and 4x original Rivita as another HeB.
    Hope that helps you?!

    OK I am asking what is a HeB

    Oops think I have worked it out is it a Healthy Extra (B), so a HeA would be a Healthy Extra (A)

    Its a Healthy Extra B Huni from your options. You must eat either 1 or 2 HeA and 2 HeB in order for this plan to work.
    On a red day, this would come in the form of diary (A) and fibre (B) on a green day this would be mainly dairy (A) and protein/fibre (B). At the top of this page there is a section that will answer this for you much better than I can, but hopefully I will have given you an idea?!

    Just remember that you pick twice from your A choices and twice from your B choices. Unless you do Extra Easy and then it's only once from A and once from B.

    You can have either 1 from A and 2 from B, or if you feel that it isnt enough for you; you can have 2 from A and 2 from B.
    I just stick to 1 HEA and 2HEB and thats enough for me, but it all comes to personal choice.

    I thought you had to have all of your healthy extras to optimise the weight loss.
