    My face looms really bloated and fat like I have gained weight. I don't weigh myself for a few more days but I feel like I have gained as I'm eating alot of carbs... Has anyone else found this??

    I can't lose weight on green alone as I'm a carb junky and can literally eat them until ithey come out my ears. Give it a chance and see what happens for WI then you can decide if its right for you :)

    Are you eating enough superfree - you still need it on green days - and drink lots of water!

    I used to eat mostly pasta, potatoes and things like that on green. I'm trying to eat more speed foods rather than having too many carbs. It seems to be working :)

    Yeah, it's fairly common having a puffy face after loaing up on carbs. Some people refer to it as "carb face" lol. Carbs need a lot of water to digest and if you don't drink enough your body retains water, hence the puffiness. You can do all green days but make sure you have lots of superfree, lots of water and a varied selection of green free foods. Lots of lentils, beans, omelettes etc.

    Definitely need the water. I'm a carb junkie to and I always lose. Weirdly, my horrendous star week cramps have got better since I started drinking loads of water

    You need a lot of water to help your body deal with with carbs and veg (veg ferment and bloat you up with gases). Plenty of fluids will help your body flush it out.

    I've never noticed this & I live on carbs. Perhaps I am more used to them than you? Anyway hope the bloating goes down soon.
