    Hiya,

    Just wondering what everybody is doing with SW?

    I started on Tuesday on Red/Green as not too sure about the EE. Need to look into it.

    This is my 4th week and I am doing red & green days, I haven't attempted EE yet - I am doing alright at the moment so I shall stop with red & green days for now, good luck with your weight loss.

    I think i'm going to have to give red/green a couple of weeks, alternating between the two to see which work best for me, then try EE and see how that works. Different things work for different people i suppose. As long as i can eat whenever i'm hungry (which is most of the time lol) i'm happy :) x

    I really prefer EE, much more variety. I tend to feel fuller if I have a balance of protein and carbs. I know you get both on red and green, I just feel more satisfied with EE. Different strokes for different folks though!

    I've only done EE this time, to be honest it's what brought me back. It really has simplified things for me, (I'm a bear of very little brain!). I like that I'm not fannying about weighing stuff (except for HEs) and it just fits in better with my lifestyle. I think for the members who were doing red/green it was more difficult than if you just start on it, as you're not comparing. I know when they brought out mix to max and especially success express I couldn't cope with them, it just seemed too much faff! I'd just do what you feels right, you can soon swap.

    I have done red and green is the past, but now am doing EE and much prefer it to either. I personally find it a lot easier as I can fill up on either green and red free foods without having to choose which plan to be on. Best of both worlds, for me.
    Some people find it a downer to only be able to have 2 Healthy Extras, but I don't mind at all. I seldom used them so it's more than enough for me.

    Heeeelllllloooo, I changed to EE yesterday from doing mainly green days and felt very nervous. I still cann't believe I can eat all that food for free. It is certainly more like normal eating though and a lot less faffing about. Easier to plan family meals with more variety on the plate. In fact, I felt soooo nervous about it I went out and bought the new SW magazine just to make sure I was understanding it properly and YIPPEE I WAS! So here goes a week of EE and hopefully a good loss.
    good luck xx
