Just wondered if your allowed 2 of each HEa and HEb on either Red or Green days, would it be possible to have 2 of the same item, as in: if im allowed 250ml of semi milk, can i have 500ml to count as 2 of my HE-a ? and the same for say 2 slices of 400g WM bread , could i then have 4 ?
i've never done this but my friend asked ( she's on another diet ) and she has said it wouldn't work, i replied i've never tried itand i wouldn't know, but now she's got me thinking ???

Hi

I only do SW from home so am no expert but some days I have 2 lots of bread as my 2 HexB. I don't often do it as I try to avoid bread as much as possible but today I'm probably going to have a Quorn bacon wholemeal roll and then make a pizza type thing for lunch using another roll with tom puree, peppers and Hex A cheese.

You can have 2 HexA on a Green or Red day but haven't ever doubled up milk, just because I would never get through that much.

Thanks for your reply, i could possibly get through the milk, maybe use some for cereal, then have a glass before bed say, but im the same with the bread it does seem a lot in one day, i also wondered if this had been done before and did it effect weight loss ? surely it would ??

Yes you can but for best losses you should aim to have a lot of variety in what you eat, so I wouldn't do it every day :)

I sometimes have 1 1/2 hxs of chicken on green when i have a roast, but i don't do that often so cant comment on losses.. I think if you did it everyday your body would get too used to it - need to shake things up a bit :)

You can 'spend' your HEXes on whatever HEX you want. I have been to have 4 HEXes of cheese in a day on more than one occasion :D Obviously its good to keep things varied, I wouldn't do it every day but its very definitely 'allowed' :)

It is most definitely allowed, for me though if I do reed days and have 2 lots of bread it does affect my weight loss but I think that's only because bread doesn't really agree with me personally but everyone is different xx

I'm with Ermintrude on the cheese. 4 hex worth on occasion! I also sometimes have double milk, so I can have a couple of nice milky lattes.

yes id say the cheese and milk is worth doubling up on ...only every now again ;-)
