    I have done a mix really but I do prefer green as I find I am fuller and if I do feel the need to snack there is more choice for me personally.

    I usually do red on Sunday's though so I can enjoy a breakfast with bacon for free!

    I have no set pattern so can't state a ratio as such but I have had a loss each week so far and am hoping it continues!!

    Edit:

    Just checked back on food diaries to look at the ratios.........

    Week 1: 5 red 2 green lost 1lb
    Week 2: 3 red 4 green lost 4lb
    Week 3: 5 red 2 green lost 1lb
    Week 4: 3 red 4 green lost 2lb
    Week 5: 6 red 1 green lost 2lb

    There doesn't seem to be any indication by the losses that one is better than the other for me personally.

    Good luck for this week - hope you get the half stone award

    I do 6 red and 1 green and I get good losses.
    If its a star week then I sometimes change that to 5 red and 2 green. I never have a green day before weigh in though!
