    Wondering if on a green Day does a 3rd of the plate need to be super free the same as Extra Easy.

    Thanks Andy

    It's a recent recommendation that all the plans have the 1/3rd SF added in :)

    Might be difficult with Baked Spud and Beans.

    Not if you add in some salad. Since I started this I've been amazed how many things taste great served over a bed of salad or with it on the side :)

    For example - today's lunch :

    Yes true but i would still have the same amount of spud and beans with or without salad.

    The longer I've been on this plan the less true that's got for me. When I think about what a portion of pasta or potato *used* to be for me - well, it's a lot smaller now :) And not because I feel I "have to", but because I feel full on less of a portion of starchy carbs now.

    I do a mix of all three plans and I lose better the more SFs I have.

    So its all about controlling the portion size.

    I think this must have been added for health benefits as the green and red plans have worked perfectly well for donkeys years without the superfree rule.

    I'm not so sure about that because I still eat the same sized portions as I used to at a much larger size but I guess everyone is different. SW only recommend the 1/3rd SF and appreciate that it's not practical with all meals such as jacket and beans, I'm not a salad lover so wouldn't have salad with my spud and beans :)

    I'm struggling with this at the min.

    Dont really like salad or veg but i'm forcing myself to eat it.

    Even if i was full off the veg i'd still make room for potatoes and meat... Maybe thats my problem lol x

    If you're having a jacket potato and beans (at home) you can sautéed some mushrooms and peppers and add it to your beans :)

    free foods keep you fuller for longer but SF will aid your weight loss more. They're lower in calories naturally and fill you up.

    I think the idea is you fill up on the superfree thus needing less of the free so in a way it's portion control, I too have found If I add a salad/portion of veg I eat a small portion of the free element that I would have before.

    And it's surprising how nice a jacket and beans or pasta bake IS with salad - wouldn't have it any other way now, it just looks wrong on the plate on its own!

    1/3 superfree is a helpful guide not a stonewall rule. you may have meals that are 1/2, 2/3s or even all superfree and some meals that have no superfree at all. As logn you aim for any many meals as reasonable to be 1/3 superfree thats great. Some meals/situations don't work with the 1/3 superfree idea and it won't do any harm.
