    I normally have
    Healthy extra a - milk for tea & maybe a couple of babybelles as a snack.
    Healthy extra b - a slice of whole meal toast or 2 weetabix or maybe a few potatoes if i'm on a red day.
    I don't always use them, just as i don't always use my syns but its reasurring to know they're there if i'm struggling (which isn't very often on this diet)

    I always use my 2 b's and usually 1 a. I don't think they're optional though you know, you're supposed to have them as part of the diet in order to get your fibre and calcium. Agh, I don't know.

    its says 1 or 2 though in the book. so i figure as long as i have at least one a day from each section, then its ok.

    i dont like babybels or much cheese, apart from cheese and onions toasties, but those are so moreish and i feel like i could eat 10 lol.

    I find my B's easy to eat as I like porridge for breakkie with nuts/seeds and dry fruit, so find I could use more of the B's to be honest! For the A's I just have the milk usually

    I'm the same. Using the b's are easy - i have to put more effort into using the a's.
    Good luck starting SW Steph! I know you get faster results with CD but this is so much easier to stick to!
