    Oh i love ee plan, i have been doing it all the time. Though last weekend right through to yesterday i was really bad which explains my gain, however i have had good losses on ee. I haven't done a red or green day since the start of the year.

    EE gives that extra feedom if needed. I still do mainly red but occasionally when I feel the need I throw in a EE day.

    I felt very unsure about EE when I rejoined in January but in 3 weeks, I have lost 5 1/2 lbs!

    Ok, my losses have been more when doing green days but I just luv EE and the freedom it gives! I can honestly say, I don't feel like I'm on a diet!

    So long as I can lose a 1lb a week, I'll be happy! I don't crave foods on EE like I did when doing green days and it fits in so well with family meals.

    Could go on!!Lol.

    I like it, but I had 3 EE days last week, I stuck to the plan 100% and only lost 1/2 a pound. So I don't think it agrees with me and my way of eating (i.e. lots!). I think I'll just use it for the odd 'treat' day here and there now.

    Before EE was introduced I think the way I ate on SW was EE anyway...

    My HEXbs were always potatoes on a red day and meat on a green day. So not much has changed for me and I love it. Feels 'normal' to me, if you know what I mean.

    I'm loving extra easy, although it's the plan I started SW on so that may be why I like it because I've never tried Red/Green. But if I'm honest if I was to do another plan I'd probs do the Mix2Max or Success Express as I'm a meat & carbs girl lol, can't really do one or the other. I've lost 4lbs in 3 weeks, & that included 2 not so behaved weeks. xx

    I was a bit cynical about it before I tried it, but have lost 2.5lb in two weeks on it, so it's all good. :)

    interesting points everyone.... i am still a bit sceptical and think i will stick to what i know, exept for the odd day when im invited out for dinner etc..... my mum in law goes to slimming world meets and is convinced that its all a con to keep you going back to class as it slows down the weight loss???? im not really a beliver of her theory to be honest, but possibly an interesting debate????

    Why would a business that is built upon helping people lose weight suddenly introduce a plan that was created to sabotage members weight losses? Members would simply lose heart and not return. Not good for business! I think MIL is getting a bit carried away lol.

    I don't see what the big fuss is about really. I couldn't have an original day if I wasn't allowed potatoes as a HEXb and I can only last so long with pasta/rice/potatoes without any meat to go with it!

    But that's not to say green days don't work for me or original days don't. I just adapt what I eat to match the plan and my needs. EE should be just like that too. Or maybe I have just took to it easier that others?

    I think the name of the plan is implying that you'll lose weight at a slower pace, at least that's what it leads me to believe. Extra Easy meaning that it's an easier diet to stick to but because it's so easy, weight loss will be slower?? Is it just me that thinks of it that way?
