    Hi,
    This may be a really daft question but if I'm doing a green or extra easy day and am having a jacket potato, do I have to eat the skin? I know that's where the fibre is but is it still sticking to plan if I don't?
    Thanks,

    Nope!

    You only need to eat the skin if you're using it as a Hex B on a red day, because, like you said, that's where the fibre is.

    On Green and EE, it's free either way - otherwise, mashed potatoes and SW chips, for example, wouldn't be free on plan either!!
