    Hello :)

    I was just wondering, do you have to use all 4 of your HEXs for the day? Is it recommended to do so, and would it effect weight loss if you did not use them all? Some days I am not eating them all (usally miss out B's if I dont really fancy them.) Is this silly and would it effect a loss?

    Thanks lovelies!!

    You should definitely have both HeBs and at least 1 HeA in order for the plan to work Hun.

    I really struggle with my A's, especially if I don't have cereal in a morning. What does anyone have as their A choice?

    Cheese, cheese and er...cheese! Parmesan, cheddar, wensleydale, lanashire, cheshire, etc.etc. And there's cheese like goat's and mozzarella,which can also be a B choice on a green day.

    Yum, cheese toasty... drools. :p

    But back to Hex As and Bs.

    The official answer appears on the SW website as this:

    Q: Do I have to eat all my Healthy Extras every day?

    A: It won't affect your weight loss if you don't take all your Healthy Extra choices. However, the Healthy Extra section is there to ensure a balanced diet, so from a health point of view we recommend that you enjoy all your Healthy Extras each day.

    I do EE, so it's one A and one B. I struggle with my A. I don't like cheese that much and I don't drink any milk, except soya milk on cereal and I don't eat cereal every day.

    I use hexa for milk and hexB for bread. Because I prefer to only use 1 of each I find the ee plan ideal for me
