healthy extras

Well, they are there to provide a balance to your diet, so it seems daft not to. I do the EE plan, and usually use my HEXA in the form of milk for cups of tea during the day and my HEXB in cereal, but I have that with Mullerlite so dont use any of my HEXA allowance.

I would say yes. I am guessing there is a reason we are told how many to have... isnt it so you get your fibre and calcium intake daily


Excited about the new me!

I would if I was you, if you can't stomache milk with your "A" allowance, maybe add cheese to your foods in the day? With your B, I don't have bread anymore or cereal on most days, so use my "B" with 2 Alpen Light Bars, and have one of those mid morning and the other late in the eve watching tv. x

My son said recently if you baked a cake would you miss out some of the ingredients & expect it to be ok?

But yes I would, they are needed for a balanced diet & the hexa provide much needed calcium & hexb provide fibre. These are things the body needs.

I have a question about this too!

Some of the cereal choices on B are set as 28g of cereal + 1 ryvita.

Does it matter that I have the cereal but not the ryvita? I just don't know where to fit in 1 ryvita! But I do like my cereal in the morning.

Again, if you want to have the full recommended amount then you should eat both. You don't necessarily have to have the ryvita at the same meal though. You could have it later in the day if you wanted. That said as long as you are getting a good dose of fibre/protein/calcium from the rest of your foods then it won't really matter if you don't have the full amount.
