New to SW Katielou's Diary

Well, I am pretty new to SW and doing it on my own - thought these food diaries seemed like a good idea, would really appreciate any feedback or advice!

Here goes -

Friday 5th Feb - Red

Breakfast - 28g Alpen HEXB, Banana

Lunch - Ham & tomato, 3 slices of thin WW wholemeal bread HEXB

Dinner - 4 slices lean bacon, scrambled egg

Snacks - Banana, fresh pineapple, 1 babybel light (2), choc buttons 15g (4), 2 cadburys roses (4)

Milk for the day - 350ml skimmed - HEXA

Felt like I've eaten loads, hope I'm doing it right - feel free to let me know x:)

Strutting her stuff
Gosh, and there was me thinking you'd hardly had anything to eat!

Breakfast - I'd struggle on just a small amount of cereal and a banana and would probably be starving come lunchtime

Lunch - which WW bread did you use as most are only 2 slices for a HEB. I think the only one where you can have 3 is the brown danish.

Dinner - IMO a few slices of bacon and some scrambled egg isn't a proper main meal.

Is there some reason you are choosing to do red over extra easy? You could have really padded out your meals with some carbs if you were doing EE.

I don't mean to sound negative, it's just that not eating enough is a common problem for newcomers. We're that programmed to think we have to cut back on the amount we eat when dieting! On SW it's about the quality of food we eat rather than the amount.
Thanks for the advice circles, trying to get to grips with the straightforward red and green days first, not really sure how EE works. This was more than enough food for me, I can't normally eat large portions.
Anyway, just about to post yesterdays, would appreciate any advice on it - syns were a bit ott!
