    Hello,

    Well I have finally decided to do something about my 3 stones of excess fat and have joined SW.

    I am still trying to get to grips with it, so please be patient with me.

    I am having a red day today and am making a roast chicken. I will have some carrots with it and some potatoes as my healthy extra B. I know that I am only allowed 227g of potatoes but if I want to have two HEBs, can I have 2 x 227g of potatoes? (hope I am not talking utter rubbish).

    Also, I would like to have scrambled eggs and baked beans for brekky. How much beans can I have and is this just one of my two healthy extra Bs.

    THANKS

    Yes you can have 2 lots of potatoes and count it as 2 HE B's.
    You are allowed 142g of baked beans as a HE B on a red day...but don't forget, if you are having 2 lots of potatoes, thats all your B's used.
    And yes, you can have gravy and count it as syns.
    Hope that helps.....and good luck on your weight loss quest!

    I would personally have this as a green day

    breakfast
    scrambled egg (use some milk from hexa)
    baked beans (as many as u want as free on green)
    2 bacon rashers hexb
    (you could have mushrooms, grilled tomatoes too)

    tea
    chicken as hexb
    potatoes as many as you want as free (could mash with rest of milk left from bfast)
    all the veg.

    Make gravy from bovril which is free and the water the veg was cooked in. I love gravy so have quite alot, thicken with cornflour (mix first with a little cold water). cornflour is 1 syn per tsp or 3 1/2 sins per tbsp.

    I guess what day you have depends on how much meat/potatoes you want. Its up to the individual really. I would want more than 2 rashers of bacon personally!! ;)
    I use Bisto gravy, its 1 syn per teaspoon so for 3/4 syns you can have some decent thick rich gravy!! ;)

    Just to confirm that is 1 teaspoon of dried granules for 1 syn...not 1 teaspoon of made up gravy!! ;)
    Some are even half a syn so its well worth it.
    Don't forget to fill up on lots of free veg... ;)

    I will.

    I am trying to make a shopping list. I know meat/poultry is free on red days but it has to be lean. Does that mean a beef/pork joint is out of the question?

    Hi , good luck with your weightloss. it takes a wee while to get used to but soon it will become second nature. You could also give the extra easy plan a go if you have it, or when you get it x
