    Hi I have started on ss+ today. I have done ss in the past but find it really difficult to stick to now. I find the meal in the evening really gives you something to look forward to all day.

    Looking at all the posts on here most people average very similar losses to ss I think the official average is 1st a month ss and 12lbs a month on ss+

    This is the details for aam, but I think ss+ is very similar..

    You have all your packs as normal and on top of that you have a small meal consisting of.....

    Protein

    11g/4oz cottage cheese (reduced fat)
    50g/2oz chicken or turkey breast without skin
    80g/3oz cod, haddock or other white fish
    80g/3oz quorn
    60g/2.5oz soft tofu opr 120g(5oz) firm tofu

    and...

    Veg

    2 tablespoons of one of the following...

    green salad leaves eg. roquette, lambs lettuce watercress, raddiccio, little gem/romain lettuces.

    celery, cucumber or red raddishes

    courgettes or marrow

    broccoli, cauliflower or any cabbage including pickled cabbage.

    spinach, kale, turnip or taro tops

    asparagus, fennel and celeriac, mushrooms

    chinese leafy greens such as pak choi or chinese cabbage.

    don't add salt or fat but add herbs and a bit of stock if you want.

    Its not wimping out..lol the way I see it if you can have very similar losses and still eat then why not! Its the only thing that keeps me going, and at least that way if you have people round or go out you can still eat something x

    190g cod,haddock or other white fish
    250g steamed tofu(whats that like never tried it?)
    200g quorn
    180g tuna (in water)
    225g cottage cheese (reduced fat)This is loads of cottage cheese

    choose one of those then add

    2 tablespoons(not very easy to do that, so I sort of guess but its not a lot)
    of:
    asparagus
    cabbage
    celery
    cucumber
    spinach
    broccoli
    cauliflower
    courgettes
    lettuce(all kinds)

    Hi, I am on SS - I heard from my CDC when you are on SS you have to do 4 weeks of SS and then 1 week of SS+ and then SS for 4 weeks again etc.
    But I read in the book, it says you can stay on SS for up to 12 weeks, so I'm a little confused.
    What do people normally do?

    Thank-you in advance
