does anyone know if i can have some of my pie i made earlier for when i get peckish later? or should i just keep to fruit between meals.. seems a shame to waste what is left.. x


Full Member
can some one please post.! lol
ive decided to have more green days this week.. but have read somewhere that green doesnt appeal to everyone. and sometimes u can have a weight gain.? awww is this true? im loving green days at the moment and ill have a red day before weigh in if thats helps thanks.. lushx


soon to be mother of the bride
I will do my best to reply

I only do green days as I am a vegetarian
I lost 70lb a few years ago to get to target - where I remained for a couple of years
then due to medication and a knee problem (so lack of mobility) I started to gain the weight
mentally I had to be ready to lose the weight again - an my time is NOW

I think in this cold weather green days are great

just dont forget to weigh and measure all healthy extras and syns
if you dont you will find your guestimate of a portion growns and grows

if you have a good look on my thread I do add some recipes that might be useful to you :):)

good luck

hi how do i get to ur thread?
im loving green at the moment. but kinda strange eating loads potatoes. i made this massive home maded cheese pie yesterday .. with mixed veg.. was amazing..! lol healthy extra extra light cheese.!
was loads left over so had a bit before i went to bed.. was that ok.?
or should i of just kept that for my main meal and have fruit inbetween my meals? my mate said u can eat it when ever u like? is that true? many thanks lushx


I can see no problem with you eating what you like when you like as long as you are aware of any syns or healthy extras contained in it. It's only Extra Easy that SW have said to eat Superfree food i.e. fruit and veg in between meals. I wouldn't worry too much.

Good luck

I was under the impression you could eat as much free food as you liked (depending on your day) i'm finding it hard to come up with snacks on green though. Any ideas?


Full Member
i thought u could eat free food whenever lol.
ive only just swapped to green loving it.. snacks>> mug shots find these in asda.. or fat free yougurt with sliced banana.. boiled eggs.. i make a huge pasta bake and eat this through out the day. last night i maded a potatoe bake with fried mushrooms..onions. peas and cheese on top free foods are just that.. eat them whenever and how much u like till ur full not exploding.. lol lushx


Full Member
as i write this im in the middle of eating banoffe pie.. yummy.
im on a green day again today. maded this lovely cottage pie tonight altho i syned the lean mince the rest was bovil stock and free veg.
with mash on top..
i seem to be having a better week on green and im hoping for a good weight loss this week lushx


Full Member
awww :( ok wasnt sure if it was a good idea to weigh myself this week two days before my weigh in. but i wanted to see how i was getting on with green. as i havent done them before.. and it seems ive gained 2lbs..! is this normal i havent cheated once.! kept a food diary and everything. i feel so down now.. or should i just wait till thursday for my meeting? plese reply thanks lushx

well the scales are a funny thing like this morning i hadnt lost more than a pound today is my weigh in day and 3 hours later i was 2lb lighter not eaten anything so sometimes dont know how it works try to save your weigh in till the day it easy to get disapointed i am terrible i weigh a few times a week just cant kick the habit.

would love the recipe for you pie i cant get my head around green days never know what to have

do you have a nice pasta recipe?


soon to be mother of the bride
Wait for Thursday I have been know to put on more than 2lb for no reason then it just goes again for no reason
stick with the plan and take your food diary to your meeting (just in case) ask your leader for some help
and dont forget all sets of scales are differnt - you should really only use one set

Hi lush, good luck for your WI tomorrow I will keep my fingers crossed for you :D I'm a red day follower so cant really offer much advice on green, I do maybe 2 GD a week , but it leaves me craving for naughty food lol :D not to mention bunged up, so I do limit how many I do.

When I do it though I snack on some bachelors savoury rice, I make a proper rice pudding with milk which gives me 2 portions, I made quorn bolognese pasta bake out of a sw mag, which is surprisingly nice (never had quorn before)

Banoffee pie sounds good. I would think if its within syns you can eat as much as you like, I dont eat much fruit mainly veg, so thats definitely not the only snack I have.

good luck
