    Afternoon Ladies and Gents :)

    Right, so I love Slimming World and love to try new things, so hoping someone could give me advice on this EE plan?

    It just seems too good to be true! Am I correct in saying that you can eat what ever is free on green days and red days on EE days and you have one HEXA and one HEXB a day? If this is the case, it sounds wonderful!

    How does the syn system work on EE? Say for example some sauce is 5 syns on a green days and 8 syns on a red day... would you count it as 8 syns?

    Final question, can you switch from EE one week to green or red days the next? How does this affect people's weight loss?

    Thanks my lovlies :D x

    Hi Sarah

    Yep, you have it right. With regards to the syns you need to pick whichever is the LOWEST syns value, so if its 8 on red and 5 on green you take 5 from your daily allowance.

    I am just coming back to sw after doing exante for a few weeks, but when I tried this at the start of the year I lost 7lbs in my first week and 3 in my second - so it works!!

    I think, almost positive, if I remember rightly you can switch daily but I would wait for one of the more experienced members to confirm that one.

    Good luck hon

    Ah right so its the lowest syn value hey, now this does seem too good to be true!!!!

    I think i'm going to give this a try, little nervous though! So say for example I wanted boiled rice with chicken and some kinda sauce... both the chicken and rice would be free and I would only syn the sauce?

    Extra easy is really good! I have done it before on odd days but this week have followed it for the whole week and have loved it! One thing to remember which hasnt been mentioned is to make sure 1/3 of your plate is superfree will speed up your losses!

    Good luck and i will let you know how the first extra easy week has affected my losses after i weigh in tomorrow!!

    It's a recommendation really.

    I've been doing EE since it came out in Jan and it's really SO much simpler x

    I reckon I can handle the one HEXA easy, but the one HEXB is going to be a killer lol. Still trying to get my head around it at the momement. It seems so easy that its alomst hard, if you see what I mean!

    I sometimes "forget" my Hebs! Because you are essentially having them already ie chicken AND rice, you won't really feel hard done by. It's just if you have cereal then you have to syn bread later on.
