    Hi,

    Extra easy scares me as it seems like I'd be eating too 'normally' and if I don't lose I get very easy demotivated! I don't go to class so I don't get the feedback, so I'm wondering does anyone find they lose more doing EE than green or red days or at least lose the same?

    I didn't lose at all, I consistently put weight on! It does seem to be working well for a fair few people on the boards though.

    I'm the same as Helen, I don't lose/maintain on it but we have had some great losses at group so it's a case of try it and see.

    There is nothing wrong with eating "normally", in fact, that's the great thing about SW - it's as "normal" as you'll ever get with a diet plan!!

    i tried the extra easy a couple of days a week for a few weeks and either put on or maintained, i went back to red and green days last week and lost 2lb after about 6 weeks of no losses. its definatly not for me but as with other people there are a few new members at my group who are havin amazing losses.

    Ive done SW before, lost a pile of weight by doing mostly green days, prob 6 out of 7 per week.
    Since rejoining class ive done EE all last week and ive lost 5 pounds, which is about the same as previous 1st week loses.
    Suppose everyone is different, but I feel so bloated after my pasta at lunch. Think I'll be sticking to tuna salad next week

    Found it really kick started my losses for about 6 weeks....was really struggling with the last 6 lbs!! Then it slowed up so I found that mixing up EE, red & green helped. Back on EE now to maintain, but have now gone under target, so think if poss you need to keep your system on it's toes by changing things about a bit every few weeks.

    Hi

    I've just joined this forum but joined SW four weeks ago and have been doing EE since I started, I lost 6lbs first week, 1.5lbs second week and 3lbs for both third and fourth week. The majority of our group who've tried EE have had good losses but it doesn't seem to suit everyone, as there have been a couple of people who've had gains with it.

    I would say give it a go - the scales will soon tell u if it's not for you!

    Good Luck!

    Christine xx

    As a SW veteran, I am finding EE hard to get my head around. But, it is my sisters birthday tomorrow and we are going out to eat. So, I may give it a go tomorrow.

    I like ee and it fits in better with the rest of the family, have lost 11.5 in 5 weighins, good enough for me, although a bit slower than when I stuck to green alone.

    I guess it is just like any plan then. Because in the days of just red and green, some would maintain for a few weeks, some would lose a little a week and others were flying! So, ee seems no different to that. Am trying it now. Alittle scared. But, nothing ventured nothing gained.

    I've been doing SW for about a year and have found my weight losses to be the same on average on EE as on the old red/green days.

    The difference is I LOVE the food on EE- it really has given me new enthusiasm as I was getting a teensy bit tired of the same old recipes.
