    Good morning everyone,
    I just want to ask a question, i am doing EE, and it sounds too good to be true,(only started this week on my own).
    So why is everyone not doing EE? I mean, some still do red/green.
    (I know that some people are vegetarians.) Does EE take longer to lose?

    Donnie46 Slow but sure....

    Welcome to the forum....

    I have only just stared doing EE after 15 weeks with SW - all the plans do work if they are followed 100%.

    I changed to EE to give my metabolism a bit of a boost, the body can get used to you eating the same all the time, plus I had heard such good reports about it that I wanted to see it for myself.

    This is my 3rd day on EE and I am converted, it's brilliant, but then all the SW plans are sooooo good.

    Good luck with your weight loss. X

    I think that a lot of people may enjoy their red/green days coz they have been doing it for a long time. EE was only introduced in January, so people who have been doing the other days before that have said they struggle to get their head around EE.

    I have done EE from day one and I love it. It gives you so much flexibility and meal options. I can see why some people like red/green though as you do get more HE in a day - especially handy if you like cereal for breakfast and a sandwich at work!!!

    i suit my plan to what i eat that day - i am a mixture -red for meat etc green for carbs and ee for bit of both.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for all the replies, right, i'm gonna stick with EE.
    Just made a sausage casserole with m&s chunky steak in gravy, tin of beans, and morrisons eat smart sausages, and some chopped potatoes. Thats all free isn't it?

    On my first week I did all EE, my second I did the first half EE and the second red and this week I did the first half green and the second so far has been EE. I try to plan my week in advance and depending on what I fancy making for meals, I plan the rest of my day around that. EE is fab though- it gives you so much more choice.

    I started SW on the 20th of this month and was asked to do EE by my consultant, well I wouldn't change a thing, on my first weigh in I discovered i'd lost half a stone

    the meat in gravy is free checked online but depending on what type of the sausages you used they are ranging from free to 5 syns a sausage, check on sw website and the online syns from morrisons

    I've just started the Slimming World diet again (last Friday). I last did the diet a couple of years ago.

    Will probably stick with red/green for a bit until I get into the swing of things again, but very interested in giving EE a go.

    Extra Easy ........... IS JUST THAT ...... easy

    We've been following EE (mostly) since it came out at Christmas because it really is so easy - if you're enjoying it I would stick with that ........ people have had brilliant weight losses on EE at my group and on this forum, and I'm still losing so I'm very happy with it. ;)

    Personally, I found that I have lost a bit more when I've stuck to a red week, but I've kind of missed pasta, rice, potatoes a bit (or have had to syn for them) - so on a whole I'd rather have a bit of both worlds - greedy so and so me! ;)

    Some people will swear by the green or red plan and if that works for them then I reckon that's great for them and good luck to them with it - our bodies, likes and dislikes are all individual so it's great that SW is so versatile!

    Best o'luck'n'stuff whichever plan you follow with SW - it WILL work if you stick with it.
