    Hi - I'm new here and am in need of support.

    I've done every diet going this year so I hope this one will be just as good, if not better.

    Does anyone know if we should use all of the healthy extras?

    Hi Hun and welcome to SW and minimins!
    You can have the option of 2 HeA's and 2 HeB's if you want, but I prefer to have just the 1 HeA.
    You must have 2 HeB's though.

    I hope this makes sense?!

    Good luck with your SW journey!!
    xx

    This is a green day yes? Then you could add some baked beans to your tea, the potato and salad wouldn't be enough for me. Exactly how many diets have you done? Just out of curiosity?

    Lol I pretend to be on a diet most of the time but I think I'm in denial as to why they don't work.

    I lost my first 1.5 stone on the Cambridge Diet, I then moved onto Slim Fast, then Weight Watchers, then the Atkins Diet, back to the Cambridge Diet, and finally onto Slimming World.

    I know it sounds a bit odd but 6 weeks on CD was enough to kick off 1.5 st. And it taught me a lot about my relationship with food. I had to try something else though as CD was getting expensive. I couldn't keep to Slim Fast and The Atkins made me ill, and so on.

    And right now I have a huge craving for chocolate!!!!

    If you know you're likely to get a craving for something sweet, maybe a good B choice for HE would be the Alpen light bars. You can have 2 of any of the flavoured bars for one HeB. I find that a chocolate fudge one with cup of tea just hits the spot.

    Or dark chocolate highlights with a banana is a good sweet fix.

    Anyway - good luck. This is more of a 'healthy way of eating' than a diet. You might be surprised at how much you're supposed to eat.
