    We're having a wee discussion on another thread about Philidelphia Extra Light. Can anyone confirm if it can be used as a HE.

    Did it used to be a HE but isnt any more???

    I have the 2008 book and work off that and in that version of the book you can have varying amounts of soft cheese depending on the fat quanity (normal, light, extra light). I still have follow the 2008 book and it hasn't effected my weight loss.

    Bear in mind that it was never available as a HExA on either plan as there isn't a lot of calcium in soft cheese :)

    I wonder why it was in it last year but not this year. Is it in your book as a HexB then squiddie and how much extra light can you have?

    Yeah it's in my 2008 food optimising book, as a HexB for the Green plan not the red. You could have 42g soft cheese (normal, full fat) 57g medium fat soft cheese (light) and 85g low fat soft cheese (extra light)

    GOOD NEWS!

    According to the July magazine, Philly light basil 57g is a HEB on green! So I've been using the garlic one as the same.

    Just to say that I'm so pleased (NOT really the right word) that I'm not the only one who gets totally confused and goes round and round in circles!

    Thanks to everyone who has posted here - a VERY useful thread.
