    I've been doing mostly extra easy and a couple of red days over the past 2 weeks and have lost absolutely nothing!

    I have been sticking to plan 100%.
    The only thing I can think of is that I haven't been eating my full 15 syns.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or tips that can help me out? I'm starting to feel down and depressed about my lack of success so far. :(

    What size are your portions and are you getting your 1/3rd of superfree.

    I've a friend who was doing it but not losing weight but then when she told me the quantity of food she was eating I wasn't surprised. She was eating in one sitting what 4 of us eat between us!

    I'm not suggesting you're doing this it's just possibly something to look at:)

    Posting a food diary would be really useful. list absolutely everything including drinks (squash, etc.). This way if there is anything at all that is obvious, we can tell you.

    Many people lose weight on extra easy - I do think its about keeping a strict count on superfree foods eaten (making sure you have one third of every meal as superfree foods) and about having one A and one B healthy extra.

    There is a link to my food diary below, I eat only Extra Easy. x

    farmer me, just post a diary of what you eat on here and I'm sure you'll get some feedback.

    12lbs in 8 weeks is good weight loss too! other things which speed up my losses are drinking LOTS of water and replacing meat with fish.

    I'm the same. Been on EE since starting the plan again in June and STS the past 2 weeks. I'm going back on to R&G like I did a few years back, as I know they work for me. So fingers crossed this week i'll see a loss at lease lol :p x. Good luck x.

    Do you eat a third superfree with each meal?
    Do you snack only on superfree foods?
    Do you weigh and measure your A and B choice?

    All these things should help you.

    It might be helpful to read Capricorn's weightloss diary 'shedding the wobble' as she lists everything she eats and has pics so you get a sense of portion sizes.
    I've found her record really helpful. Even tho people loses at different rates depending on their weight/mobility etc, you might find it useful for reference. :)

    I noticed she began doing all EE days and was losing well, although I think she prefers Red days now.

    I have a food diary but just on paper. It would probably be an idea for me to start one on here then!
    Thank you for that suggestion, I hadn't thought to ask anyone on the forum to look at that.

    I will go and create one now then!
    Is there anywhere specific I should do it?
