    ok im beginning to get stressed... i was reading thru some posts and i saw that u have to have 1/3 superfree food on ur plate on an EE day!!! ARGH i dont think i have been doing that!
    I know u can eat red and green day together

    Also i dont really know what superfree foods are...... not been to class for ages.... can i have some clues?

    i'l give u an example of my meals on EE....

    breakfast... 2 eggs (fry light) on 2 400g wholemeale meal bread sometimes baked beans but not all the time)

    snack... super noodles, savoury rice or syn free lasagne chips or bit of ham

    Dinner.....jacket potato and salmon... mixed veg
    or
    savoury rice and jacket potato (is this ok???)

    Is this sound ok for EE????


    I need some advise!!!! thanks

    im not doing EE but have been looking into it as i want to give it a go, from what youve wrote it doesnt look like youve been getting your 1/3 into each meal...try not to feel to down about it is this your first week?

    ive just had a look through my book and it lists all the superfree foods in that so you still have your book? if not then let me know and ill post them here for you xx

    Superfree is non-starchy fruit and veg - all fruit except avacado I think and all veg except potatoes, parsnips, sweetcorn and peas.

    Sorry to be bearer of bad news. To do EE, you MUST fill either 1/3 of your plate or day with superfree fruit or veg.

    You have had 3 HEX's, on EE you only get 2, so on balance its looking like a green day, but the syn free tortilla chips have to be synned now (is that the ones made from lasagne?) as SW say its like the Cous Cous cake, you're not using the items like they are supposed to be.

    You're going to hate me by then end of this thread. Sorry

    hun its ok don't stress the 1/3 super free is only a recommendation you don't have to do it and its ok to have your meal and have fruit as your superfood.
    here is a list of super foods
    http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world/59296-does-anyone-have-list-superspeed-foods.html

    don't worry about the past hun its done just concentrate on trying to get 1/3 ss in future if you don't make it don't worry.
    I do ee and have never done 1/3 super free cause i don't like veg but i'm trying now

    I've been doing EE for 9 months now and never knew about the 1/3 plate of superfree foods either! I think as long as you manage to get more fruit and veg in your diet, your weightloss should be fine. Don't worry! The thing I try and do is make meals where I can disguise veg so I eat it without "knowing" - like chilli con carne, for example and as well as mince, I add onions, carrots, peppers, celery and courgettes. I make a big batch and then freeze it so I can have it whenever. Makes life easier and I'm all for that! Good luck! :)

    What I was trying to say, perhaps not very well, that on EE you would only get 2 HEX's. One of A and one B.

    On green and red you can have 2 of each.

    The SW guidelines recommend that each meal contains one third of its volume as suprefree, so each meal is made up of 1/3 superfree and 2/3 free. So adding some veggies or fruit to your supernoodles would be better.

    Banana's, fruits/superfree as a snack is fine.

    Your dinner looks fine.

    Official advice from the FAQs on the SW website:

    Q: Is a third of a plate of Superfree Food mandatory on the Extra Easy plan?

    A: No, we'd never insist you eat in a way that might not suit you. However, we encourage you to include a third of a plate of Superfree Food to keep Extra Easy extra low energy density (low calorie), extra satisfying and extra healthy to optimise weight loss.
