    Corn on cub, including sweet corn canned
    Carrot
    Cucumber
    Cabbage
    Lettuce
    Peas
    Pears
    Apples
    Oranges
    Banana
    Plantain, it a bigger type of banana
    Whole-grain cereals
    Full cream milk
    Low fat yoghurt

    I usually have fruit and fibers with full cream as my Hex and a piece of fish/chicken.
    I need help so that i can begin to lose weight, i have got about 60lbs to lose.

    Well the meat is a no no on green day's! Plantain I would check and ofc cannot be fried! The full fat cream again is not on plan either! Maybe you need to reread the book again?! White bread isn't on plan! And low fat yoghurt would be syns not free

    As Mizkirsty says - you need to read the book again. Going by what I learn at class, this is what I understand your list as:

    Free foods
    Sweet potatoes
    pasta
    Rice
    Eggs
    Beans, including baked beans
    Corn on cub, including sweet corn canned
    Carrot
    Cucumber
    Cabbage
    Lettuce
    Peas
    Pears
    Apples
    Oranges
    Banana
    Plantain, it a bigger type of banana (As long as it's cooked without fat)

    The following foods can be used as healthy extras
    Chicken
    Meat
    Whole-grain cereals
    Full cream milk (You only get a small amount)

    The following foods need to be checked for syns, they are not free
    Chocolate drink(i love it)
    White bread
    Low fat yogurt (Most types have syns - Fat free yogurts are the ones more likely to be free)

    Perhaps you should consider joining online for clearer information?

    Best of luck with it all. :)
