    I'm following the plan to the letter and having only occasional success in between unexplained weight gain. I eat a fair bit of basmati rice and wondered if anyone has found this has caused weight gain? I also eat quite a few eggs (2 for breakfast most days) - could this be slowing down weight loss?

    Not sure, but a few people have said that there weight loss hasn't really shown up for a couple of weeks, and then they have a good loss once there bodies have got used to it!
    I eat mammoth portions of white pasta and that's not hindered me up to now.
    Saying that I have heard that eggs can......erm......make u a little less regular in the toilet department?!
    Sorry if that was too much info for this time of morning lol x

    I know certain foods are technically 'free' I still tend to limit them , because to me its obvious you can eat far too much if you put your mind to it .....maybe you are over doing the free foods?

    We were discussing this in class last week. Some of the old timers were saying to us newbies that in the old days of just red & green plans you never mixed your carbs with proteins and whenever they "cheated" and broke the rule they tended not to lose as much weight that week. Most of them tried EE plan when it was introduced but nearly all of them prefer the original red and green so they reckon that if you're doing the EE plan then it makes sense to have smaller portions of carbs and huge portions veg and meat - hence reiterrating the 1/3 superfree rule.

    I agree with scrummymummy - eggs are great for you, but they can make you a bit constipated! If you've noticed you're not powdering your nose (haha) very often, it might be that! I eat quite a lot of rice and I haven't noticed it slowing me down. I do try and stick quite rigidly to the 1/3 superfree, and although I eat big portions, there's a lot of veg and salad in there.

    I was only having my 2 small slices of wholemeal bread per day, I have also noticed my tummy is a lot less bloated, as I said it maybe a slight intolerance to wheat

    I agree with much of what you say, but take issue with this particular part. Refined sugars in white rice and pasta? How?
