    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering, do you lot follow a plan as to which eating plan you're going to do? Ie red, green, red etc.

    I'm finding it hard to decide but feeling a bit out of control deciding on the day. I've settled on a red day today as I'm due * week and don't want to be even more bloated than normal...

    Also a seperate issue but would greatly appreciate any feedback, do you find taking water tablets near to * week helps with water retention? Only I get so bloated it helps but don't want to feel as if I'm 'cheating' by taking the tablets, if that makes sense :eek:

    Thanks girls & guys.
    P.s newbie to this site but its really lovely. :)

    Nope, I don't follow any set pattern. I can do a week of green, a week of red, alternate days, a week of EE - basically whatever I fancy that day, I do. It also depends on what is in the cupboard!

    I've never taken water tablets so can't help on that score. I'm not sure it would be classed as cheating though as any weight gained by water retention is a false gain and you usually find people lose extra weight the next week.

    i know wot u mean im terrible when its my * week!!

    get so bloated etc!!

    i do tend to have less green days and have more red!!

    or if i do have green days have them lighter!!

    i know what u mean about the tablets etc(u mean water tabs?)as cheating

    but if u are retainging alot of water then maybe once a month when your on your *week will help and i wouldnt see thats cheating!!

    Thanks you guys.
    Just don't want to take the water tablets and give myself a false reading, but at the same time I can gain upto 5lbs on a star week simply because of the held water, my hands and feet and stomach swell up like sponges :-( so I think I'm gonna have a go at taking them just the day or so beforehand and during to try and help a little.

    I think I'm gonna do a red, green etc. Mostly I have the stuff for green days in but again I must hold a lot of water & green days seem to promote this in me & it shows on the scales!

    Thanks for your replies xxxxx

    When I've had a naughty week, I tend to ensure I do an extra red day or two as they boost my weight loss. Tuesday is always a green day. This is because I don't have time to cook dinner, so I stick a JP in the oven and leave it for a couple of hours. Easy peasy! I'd quite like to do green more often because I love carbs but it isn't great for my weight loss. :eek: I mix and match my other days - red or EE.

    Personally, I wouldn't take water tablets. As hard as it is, you know the gain isn't a real one. Try to accept it it will be higher and don't let it dishearten you. Plus, you'll get a nice weight drop the week after! ;)

    Have you mentioned this to your doctor and is s/he the one who prescribes the water pills? They can be dangerous if you're not super careful. :eek:

    I've gone from a week of eating indulgent food to being back on track big time for the last couple of days. All I've done is wee too - nothing to worry about. The body will get used to it and you'll go less.

    Heya, I do Extra Easy normally :) it's how I lost most of my weight but I do tend to dabble in Green :)

    I took water retention tablets due to being bloated before, it's not cheating because it isn't a slimming pill - it won't help you lose weight but it will stop you holding onto excess water :)

    Hope this helps x
