    This is my first week on EE, i'm liking it lots but just want to double check i'm doing it right.

    Tonight i want fried egg, SW chips and beans for tea is that okay or do i have to eat 1/3 of meat aswell??

    I've also had a couple of mugshots throughout the week and have eaten either carrots or grapes with them, is that right to?

    Does everymeal have to have 1/3?

    I hope you understand me i'm a little confused :rolleyes:

    Thank you :p

    hi i am still getting my head around the 1/3 superfree, can u add any more veg to it like onions and mushrooms etc to really get your 1/3

    i know your having 3 piece of food and that should be 1/3 but i always try to add more

    hope i didnt confuse you

    Don't know if it is right or wrong but I too would have the meal you have suggested. When sticking to the plan (EE) 100% I have lost 5lb in a week, and I never ever done the 1/3 super food thing. xx

    Every meal needs to have one third superfree and at the moment you don't have any. So I suggest adding some vegetables on the side and having some fruit for afters.

    If your mugshots were a snack then you don't need to have superfree with them but SW recommend you should choose superfree foods rather than free where possible.

    Fruit and veg is an essential part of a healthy diet and the one third rule really isn't a huge amount, so try and stick to it wherever possible. After all we're here not just to lose weight but to do it healthily.

    On EE the 1/3 of your plate should be superfree food, so try adding something from the superfree food list in your book....mushrooms, toms etc HTH ;)

    Sorry, but you are not sticking to the EE plan 100% if you do not do the 1/3 "super food thing"!
    You would have lost, yes, I lost similar amounts before the new rule was brought about, however SW brought this rule for a reason. It encourages healthy long term eating, without stuffing on too many carbs etc.

    In the same respect though reading through other threads i.e Confessions not everyone follows it 100% but whilst its working for the individual i think thats okay.
    Least when you hit a platau or weightloss slows down, you know what you can change ;)

    Absolutely, however some people state they are following the plan 100% and are wondering why they have not lost weight!
    If they really look into it, certainly in most cases they are not following SW 100%!!

    Don't panic! It takes a few weeks to get your head round the plan! I've come back after a break and it's making me think! I never split down superfree and free before, but hey all you have to do is add some fruit, or I'd have fried some tomatoes.

    not enough superfree food. the 1/3 rule is super free food, fruit and veg. meat is free food. free food will help you maintain not loose. if you want to loose eat more vegies.
