    If you are having a green day do you have to eat 1/3 of your super free foods? I've not been just back on track this week after a holiday not much in house so ate alot of pasta choices, and super noodles so not sure i will lose this week, not much veg or fruit in house.

    You dont have to no, but it is always a good bet to have 5 a day etc etc.


    in theory yes you can only eat these foods and have a loss, but its not a varied diet. Try getting some frozen veg in and stir a handful thru the pasta when it cooking? Salad on the side of the pot, and turn the noodle into a stir fry?

    My green meals generally have 1/3 superfree without me thinking about it much. I chuck as much veg as I can in :D

    I tend to find this as well, as you are staying away from meat products you find to use veg as a sub.. so with your pasta dishes instead of adding meat I would make a ratuolliou (bad spelling) or when having macaroni cheese having a side salad as well as the tomatoes, onions and mushrooms that are already in it. Green days are very simple to snack on as well.

    There is no "requirement" on green (or red) for superfree foods - but i try to make sure there are some in there (failed today though cos i just wanted stodge - baked suds and baked beans). - though there's an apple in the fridge for a bit later on.

    The more superfree though the better - and i find ensuring i have some has helped with weight losses in the past.
