    Hi all.

    A week or so ago some helpful people on here told me that I'm struggling to lose weight now because after losing 4 and a half stone my body has gotten used to Extra Easy, so I should try Red or Green days too. I still have another 4 stone to go.

    I have never really understood the red and green days.

    How many Healthy Extra A and B do I need daily?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks all in advance x

    Thanks for that. Does it matter/make a difference whether you have 1 or 2 Healthy Extra A's a day?

    Slimming World GREEN Veggie
    Hi

    I am a veggie so I only do Green days.

    You can eat as much veg and fruit as you like. Theres no 1/3 plate rule. In regards to hexA and hexB. I tend to have 1 hexA and 2 hex b.

    However, if I have cheese and dont want milk that day at all i will double up on the cheese 2hexA.

    You can still eat fish and meat on Green you just have to syn it.

    But pasta, rice, egg and noodles are completely free so you can eat as much a you want without having to Syn.

    Congratulation with your weight loss so far

    Lisa xx

    Likewise if you want a red day, you can have as much free lean meat and fish as you want, and just HEB your potatoes and anything else you may fancy which is in your F O book. Good luck

    I love red days and find the 2 HEBs really help :) I normally just have 1 HEA but its nice to be able to have a bit a cheese or laughinh cow with tea if i want it :)
    I use butternut squash as a potato subsitute and make chips / wedges out of them most days :)

    I was in the same position as you a few weeks back. I too had los 4 1/2 stone & then my losses stalled. I started doing mainly red days (with a few green & EE thrown in) & thankfully that has kickstarted my losses.

    Good luck. I hope it works for you too

    Well done Sweet. You're doing great! Thanks. I'm just trying to get my head around exactly what is in the HEx B for the red and green days because it seems a bit different.

    The HEX Bs are the same as for extra easy with the following additions:

    Green - Lean meat and fish, nuts and seeds, cheese (inc soft cheese)

    Red - Beans, peas, lentils, wholemeal pasta, potato (with skins) and parsnips

    Thanks very much for your help. I will try red and green for a while. I was just scared of getting it wrong and starting to gain weight. I don't want to go back to the old me.
