    Hi, I'm a newbie here and am on my third day of sw :) thought I would post my diary incase i'm doing anything wrong - i'm still a bit unsure of myself! I'm doing red and green days but at the moment have only done green as it's a lot easier for me to find something for lunch! I will probably only do red days at the weekend :) anyway, i've had a sneaky peek on the scale and things seem to be moving I the right direction, so i'm really hoping for a loss on my wi day (monday) here's my diary for today :)

    Today was a green day:

    Breakfast: special k and semi skimmed milk

    Lunch: vegetarian chilli with pasta

    Dinner: am probably going to do a stir fry with quorn pieces

    Snacks: so far just an apple - i'm so stuffed! But have a clementine in my bag and might have some carrot sticks later. Will probably have a curly wurly tonight too :) they're 5.5 syns right?!

    Hi! Hope you dont mind me popping in a looking at your diary.

    Looking at your menus I have noticed that you are not using all your Healthy Extras. On Green days and Red Days you are allowed 2 x HEXA and 2 x HEXB and on Extra Easy Days you can have 1 of each. :)

    Hi everyone :) Thanks for the info about HE's bubbalicious and i sure hope so rumble tummy! Does museli count as a HE? I'm thinking of having that for breakfast this week :) I'll try get some more in but i just don't know when to eat them!
    I ended up doing a green day yet again... I do plan on doing a red day at some point, i just find it so much easier to make meals with carbs

    Breakfast: Two Quorn sausages with scrambled egg

    Lunch: Pieces of mango and a clementine (i know this isn't great but i was at work)

    Dinner: Pasta with a mushroom sauce. I also had a bit of bread and butter pudding.Very naughty i know but i'm not going to eat any other syns!

    Snacks: An apple and will maybe have a muller light in a bit, i'm not really hungry though.

    Hi blue cow,

    Your diary looks ok but you don't seem to be eating enough! Make sure you use more of your syns and try and use your healthy extras.

    Not sure if you're a veggie, but if not, try doing EE for a few days, you only get one of each Healthy Extra and you have to make sure each meal is a third superfree (essentially fruit and veg, except starchy ones like corn and parsnips). You don't seem to be using all your Hex's so at least you can mix meat n fish with your carbs :)

    Xx

    For your Hex A, you could have cheese, and then for your B, a wholemeal pitta (although not all are Hex's, you'll have to check). Throw on a bit of passata and you have a pitta pizza!

    You could use 1 level tbsp of extra virgin olive oil as a Hex B as well.

    There are also numerous bars, like Aplen Light or Fibre Plus bars which also count as Hex's.

    Have a look through a few other diaries and you'll soon get some ideas :) x

    28grms of Jordan's muesli + 1 ryvita wholegrain crackerbread is a hexb. There are lots of hexb's to choose from.

    I noticed you like sweet things, you could have sugar puffs (without milk) as a snack but to count as a hexb you also need to have 1 scan bran.

    You don't mention if you are going to class or not. If so you will have a book with all the hex's in there. If you're not going to class there is a subforum on here dedicated to Healthy Extra's.

    Don't forget to measure your milk so you stick within your allowance.

    Are you having enough to eat? You can eat as much free food as you want, there is no need to go hungry. Yep take a look at the diaries to get an idea on what you can eat.

    Yep activia fat free yogurts are free. Don't feel guilty about the creme egg ice cream, that is what your syns are for.

    Well done so far, don't forget to keep asking questions.:D

    Crikey I've just read what I've wrote & it sounds like I'm shouting, I really don't mean to & just want to help:D

    Glad the yoghurts are free they're gorgeous :) And you didn't sound like you were shouting lol :) you were very helpful, thank you. :)

    I don't go to class as i live in the middle of nowhere! Jordans muesli is what i've been eating - does it only count as a Hexb if you have it with the ryvita?

    I think i'm eating enough most days, i don't tend to feel hungry. It's weird, because even my muesli will keep me going until lunch time with no hunger pangs!

    Yes the muesli must be eaten with the ryvita & only 28grms is hexb, you could have 2 lots to count as both hexb's:D

    Okay, i'll get some Ryvita in at the weekend!
    Did another green day today, feeling a bit unwell this afternoon though - still ate but didn't really enjoy it :(

    Breakfast: Muesli (28g) with SS milk

    Lunch: Pasta with tomato and vegetable sauce, 2 x Activia ff yoghurts

    Dinner: Pasta and quorn bolognese, with lots of veggies :) Also put 20g grated Low fat cheddar on - HEa?!:D

    Snacks: a banana and a peach

    Any idea how many syns the muesli is seeing as i'm not having Ryvita with it atm?

    Diary for today...
    GREEN DAY

    Breakfast: Omelette (2 eggs) and 2 Activia FF Yoghurts

    Lunch: 200g Pineapple chunks (wasn't very hungry as i had breakfast quite late)

    Dinner: Leftover Quorn bolognese with pasta and some HExA LF cheddar grated on top... and there's still some left lol. Don't mind though i love bolognese!:D

    Snacks: Nothing so far!! Not very hungry today, probably because my head hurts... May have a yoghurt or some fruit later but will try stay away from the syns! Might make a hot chocolate later though to use up my HExA milk allowance.

    Am going out to Frankie and Bennys tomorrow night with some friends! Have had a look at the menu and think i'll probably have a red day and eat either:

    'Warm chicken salad':

    'Chicken breast pieces with red onion and mushrooms, glazed in soy sauce on a bed of mixed leaves with spinach, cucumber, peppers and tomatoes. Served with garlic ciabatta bread on the side.' And ask for it without the garlic bread... unless i feel like i desperately want some lol! (i do love my garlic bread:p)

    or lemon chicken salad:

    'A seasoned chicken breast served with fresh rocket, spinach, green and red peppers, celery, red onion and cherry tomatoes, all tossed in our delicious lemon and basil oil with half a char-grilled lemon on the side.'
    :break_diet:
    Do these look OK? Howe many syns do you reckon would be in them? (Without the garlic bread of course;))
