    Just curious - those of you who do red & green days, how many healthy extra A's do you have?

    I'm from old school Slimming World where it was always 1 healthy extra A, 2 Healthy extra B's so having an extra one always feels a bit naughty (daft I know!)

    Have you noticed any change in weight loss from having 1 or 2?

    Cheers x

    You are allowed 2 HEA choices, but my C always says that it isn't as bad to not use both As as it would be Bs. I mostly use both A choices but not always and either way my weight loss has been fine. I do notice if I have not had enough Bs though!

    I really struggle with my A's because i only drink soya milk and im not a massive cheese fan.

    I have to work my A's into things such as pasta and sauce, mozzerella toppings on a bake etc.

    I try to have 2 HEA's but often only manage 1 but it hasn't affected my losses :)

    I only have 1 A as I don't like a lot of the things on there, I rarely have 2 and if I do it's cheese on a salad or something :)

    I have 2 HEA's most day's - mainly because I have a lot of weight to lose and I can always drop one A when my weight loss begins to slow down along the way....I usually have skim milk for one and either 3 Light Babybel cheese's or 6 Laughing Cow Ex Light triangles (split up during the day) for the other one.

    You can have cheese as a HeB on a green or EE day only - not red. I guess its to do with the protein content?

    HEXB choices are all usually fibre based such as bread, crispbreads, cereals etc.

    HEXA choice's are calcium enriched choices such as cheese and milk.
