    you can have 3 x ww brown danish bread :D as your HEB


    you don't have to give up your treats, i think you need to push WW to the back of your mind and really enter this with an open mind.. i still have a takeaway every week and thoroughly enjoy my treats.. my advise to you is eat all the free foods you can, EE is a fab plan and once your in teh swing of it, i think you'l agree!!

    Hunger is not a friend to make, especially on SW. I didn't like EE because of the limited HE B choices (love my bread too). BUT it is working loads for lots of SW members so maybe give it a go.

    At work I snack on blueberries and raspberries (Superspeed foods) and when I feel like something sweet I eat a Hartley's No Added Sugar jelly (1/2 syn per pot or make a sachet up and pour into old tubs and keep in fridge to save money hehe).

    Carrot sticks are great too to snack on. I pretty much graze enough to grow hooves hehe.

    SW does work but I can imagine it's hard to change from WW to SW without some level of 'argh!'-ness.

    Good luck xx

    Why not have 3 scrambled eggs with a big tin of baked beans? That'd certainly fill you up and it's all free :)

    Thanks

    Is the brown WW bread the round loaf for 3 slices or the ordinary 'loaf' shaped slices? I have been using the WW wholemeal thick sliced bread - it's toasts lovely and holds a sandwich filling well, I have been counting 2 slices as a HEXB, hope it's right.

    Hi Donnie
    I have seen the thick ww bread but not really tried it are you doing the extra easy plan Im a bit confused with the extra easy plan as you are only allowed 1 healthy a and 1 healthy b what ive done today is take my health a for my cereal and the other for milk so if i had wanted bread for lunch how would i have done this it seems alot 6.5 syns for bread out of your 15 a day

    You could add a banana to your cereal, or I use low fat fromage frais as it's thicker, then have a banana mid morning. You could have a mullerlight and a piece of fruit as well after your beans and egg, it's just getting used to eating enough! Make use of loads of veg and fruit, and have 15 syns a day! It works, but not if you don't eat enough! I get any wholemeal bread, just weigh it to make sure its 2oz. Once you get used to it you'll never look back!

    EE is really easy because you can eat free foods from both Red and Green so you don't need as many a's and b's, for example, I do EE at the weekend so for breakfast I have a lot of lean bacon, big pile of beans, scrambled egg, tinned tomato's and mushrooms. For lunch, use my bread to make roast chicken sandwiches and then for tea I have spag bol with lots of spaghetti and mince, all free :)

    The biggest problem with SW is not eating enough, if you do that then your body goes into Starvation Mode and you don't lose any weight, and because you're depriving yourself you become miserable and disillusioned and end up stuffing your face with all the wrong foods.
