Hi, your food for Sunday looks ok, but don't forget to have some (one third) super free food with your meals, it will help your weight loss.
Good luck with your goals.

The healthy B's are to give you sufficient fibre, which will help you to lose weight, but if you don't have it - that's ok.
Your Super free foods can be in addition to your meal, or included - so chilli or Bolognese cooked with tomatoes, onions etc would count as the Super free

Banana & coffee

2 boiled eggs & apple

Hey here to subscribe. Advice for eating out, I'm not too good with it to be honest. As anti social as it is I try not to go out for dinner too often so that I don't have to face it. When I do go out/have a chinese or whatever it tends to be on an off plan day.
I know a lot of people weigh their chinese to help them account for syns and basically just don't have the 1/3 superfree with it. As far as I'm aware the 1/3 sf rule should be used as much as possible to limit your calorie intake elsewhere but I'd say every now and again not sticking to it is fine as long as you're not over doing the syns which you don't appear to be:)

I personally don't know anyone who has gained from fruit. You should definitely try to have some syns each day :)
I'm northern Irish and in pretty sure barm is an English thing but if I'm right is it like a bread roll? It may need to be synned unless wholemeal and weighed so it could be used as your he.

My day was good thanks, lost 1.5lb this morning so hoping for another good week :)
 
#14
Thanks Jen iv caught up with Fridays Chinese syns now yay :)
Yes the barms r bread rolls it was my HEB, I am struggling with the HEA's tho I don't think my few coffees a day cover the milk.
Arh well done chick! Which days have u mostly done this wk? Keep it up! Iv just got home from the gym gonna be good for the rest of the day I find it easier when I'm at home, I work in a office u c so it's so easy to pick at mints, chocolate etc it all adds up :S xxx

What type of milk do you use? It you use skimmed you could change to semi skimmed as you'd have a lower allowance. I sometimes split my hexs...have half milk and half cheese.

I probably had an equal split of green and ee this week. I really need to get my head round red and try it as people seem to get good losses.

Gym in the morning, boiled eggs & fruit salad for breakfast, chicken salad & a yoghurt for lunch, ham, low fat cheese & veg omellette for tea, and save my HEB for a snack somewhere in the day super speed soup an bread or a sandwich if I'm hungry during the day... Lets see what happens :)

Monday

Done a red day today! I normally find these hard but it wasnt too bad, dinner was slightly boring tho.

Banana & coffee
Tabata toning workout
2 boiled eggs & apple
Chicken salad mayo (1) piripiri sauce (2) & snack a jacks (4.5)
Apple & yoghurt
Ham & cheese butty (HE A&B) Super Speed soup (1) & 2 plums Hi FI bar (HE B)
Squat challenge day 3

Syns- 8.5
HE A- cheese & splash of milk (halved each A choice)

I found my old slimming world books from 2011 today. I was a stone lighter at my joining weight, and was losing 2-3 lbs a week doing red and mostly green days. My losses do seem slower when i do EE think il keep up the red and green days with lots of super free :)

..... Bit of chicken and a muller light- no syns but really need to stop these snacks after tea it's a bad habit :-(
