    I can't afford to go to meetings at the moment but have got SW books from previous meetings and the most recent magazine. As i understand it for extra easy you can eat anything that is free on read or green days together. And when it comes to HEa and HEb you get to have one from each. My question is are the HE's the same for Extra Easy as they were for green and red days e.g. HEa dairy and HEb bread etc. Sorry i'm just confused and i am really interested in doing extra easy.

    Many thanks

    thyre the same however obviously you dont have meat as a healthy extra like on a green day, or potatoes on a red day, just bread, cereal, canned and cooked fruit etc.

    EE you have to have 1/3 superfree with meals. Although some people do it over the day instead of with meals.
    My C told me it was important it was with meals.

    Superfree with every meal, fruit with breakfast, veg with or maybe salad with noodles?
    Sweet orn fine but don't include it in your 1/3 superfree as it's only free.

    Imagine a plate cut into 3. On one bit (1/3rd) of your plate needs to be the superfree so fruit or veg.
    You don't have to literally have it on your plate as for example fruit with jacket is just gross but you should eat it with your meal, so say you finish your jacket pot then eat your fruit for pudding.

    Take a look at my food diary and you will see some fruit or veg with every single meal.

    Sorry slow, am on my iPod touch replying in bed lol.

    Yes all tinned fruit is synnable I'm afraid. Only fresh or frozen is syn free and even then you need to be careful with some frozen ones as they can have sugar in them.
