    Hi :)

    I'm just wondering if anyone does only green days? And if so how much weight have you lost?

    Also what sort of stuff do you eat? For example could you maybe write out an exmple of a day or a week? :)

    Thanks :) :) xx

    Hiya,

    I have done mostly green days and lost 1 stone 11 pounds since beginning on Jan this year. I eat mostly salad's, patsta, eggs (scrambled, boiled, poached etc) s/world chips and loads of veg. I find i'm not as hungry doing green days.

    Have just decided to go it alone as i never stayed to class only went to get weighed. I'm still going to weigh myself on Tues though, and the £200 bet i've got with my step dad is a big insentive to get my last five lbs off and stay at 9 stone 6 till xmas. want to keep it of for ever this time..

    Good luck, Sparky ;)

    ^^ oooh I love that bet!

    ConfusedGirl - I am doing the EE plan but when I read over the dairys I noticed that I did a lot of green days.
    I eat mostly - fruit for breakfast, with snacks of yogurt and/or Alpen bars(hexb).
    Lunch - beans and jacket potato/bean and salad with grains.
    Tea - pasta, tom sauce + chicken (hexb) or quorn with cheese (hexa)

    I would try out what ever plan fits your life style.

    i mainly stay on green, maybe an odd red day once a week. for and average green day i'll have
    Breakfast- weetbix with milk

    mid morning- apple, grapes maybe a muller light.

    lunch- jacket potato with beens and cheese, banana, orange and (another) muller light

    Dinner- homemade pasta dish, or sweet potato wedges and mushy peas.

    Snacks- mug shots (great to fill u up and they take a while to eat lol, options hot chocolate, hi-fi bar, kiwi fruit,

    not the most exciting, but its worked great for me and i rarely feel hungry theses days
    Hope this was some help :)

    Hi ConfusedGirl!

    Im vegetarian so Im on green days everyday & in honesty I love it!
    Im rarely starving & if I am theres always stuff I can eat.

    I usually have bran flakes for breakfast, either salad & couscous or pasta with passata sauce for lunch. For dinner I love things like egg noodle stir-fry with quorn plus peppers thrown in, or SW shepherds pie. I snack on fruit all day.

    Im in my 10th week now & Ive lost 16lbs so far. I started off not having syns thinking Id do better but I hit a plateau & now have to eat most or all of my syns everyday (which believe it or not I find hard!)

    Hope thats helps!

    Ive done it in the oven like but sometimes if I havnt got time I'll cook it all separately & put it on the plate separately rather than in the over in a big dish.
    Maybe you could add things to the meat to make it more tasty..?!
    I just have veg, quorn mince, garlic & canned tomatoes all cooked & then the mash mixed with from frais.

    I mainly do green days. I have only been at sw for 2 weeks but have lost over half a stone so I figure the green plan suits me and intend to keep to it. I will lose red more often if I stall in my weight.
