    I haven't done any red days this time, only before I got pregnant but I want to do a red week starting tomorrow.
    I'm not a meat eater though, I only really eat chicken.
    Could I substitute all the meat for quorn instead? Will it still be effective or does it HAVE to be real meat??

    I don't see the benefit of doing a red week & only eating quorn.

    I love quorn & I think you'd be just as well having a green week if you're not going to be eating real meat.

    Hi Leah,

    I do red all of the time and probably have quorn every 2nd day and it doesn't cause me any problems at all, in fact, I find that it actually boosts my loss but still leaving me satisfied.

    My fave quorn product at the mo has to be the peppered steaks, a must try, however I think they may have syns in them? Must check! lol.

    If you aren't going to eat any meat, how will it be a red week? Are you going to be having fish?

    Thanks for the replies. I wanted to know if it would effect losses.
    avisk - I would be eating quorn instead of real meat, so no potatoes, rice etc, just quorn and free food

    I tend to do mainly red weeks & still have quorn - i haven't had any probs with it affecting WI, seems to do the trick!

    I do how-ever eat loads of meat & some fish to so not sure if it boosts WL or not :)

    Thanks. I only eat chicken and wouldn't touch sausages with a barge pole and I don't like beef or other red meats either, so was going to have chicken and quorn sausages/steaks etc, because I dont want to eat chicken in every meal lol

    generally I had pasta, rice and potatoes 4/5 times
    my weight gained
    bloated
    did not eat enough veg
    what is important is to eat veg with meals in my opinion but you have to do what is right for you

    Oh man :(

    Not sure what's right for me at all I guess it's only my first week. Hubby says don't worry at least I'll know it doesn't work for me and do red days after that or something. It isn't as if I'm pigging out on it just eating normal portions so maybe I'll be ok

    *gulp*

    You had pasta or rice and potatoes 4 times in the week and had a gain? Or 4 times in a day?

    I bought a ready cooked chicken from asda and been munching on it all day lol
    Do I have to leave the skin? I haven't been eating it.
    For tea I'm having a Quorn steak with a fried egg and mixed veg.. would this be classed as red??

    four times a day, I have problems with control, which I am working on. I still do green days but more red as its more control for me. Don't get stresed about it just give it a go and you soon work out what is best for you. Some people are really sucessful with green, I am just merely commented on my personal expeirence :)
