    Yes sticking to Red Days is fine. I find I bloat on green days so also stick mainly to red days.

    I alternate my days for variety but tend not to eat too much pasta as I find that I get bloated as well. I also have Mix2Max days too, where I will have red for brekkie, green for lunch and red for dinner and during the day I snack on fruit and veg sticks and also free on both vegetable soup.

    My sister is a type 1 diabetic and she was fine on red days. She got any sugar she needed from fruit. It actually helped her Diabetes as she is usually high rather than low. The only thing you need to be mindful of is to always have some fruit with you in case you go low.

    my consultant is diabetic, although i think it's type 2. she was on medication for it, but lost 10 stone on SW and controls her diabetes through her diet, no longer needing any medication whatsoever. :)

    my dad has type 2 diabetes and has been told losing weight and cutting out white bread, sugar, etc. will help his health alot. his GP recommended SW to control his diabetes.

    eating things like pasta and using b choices on wholemeal bread, ryvita, cereals, etc. would help as they would be classed as slow release carbs which keep your blood sugar levels steady. i'm not diabetic, but i use these foods to control cravings for sugary foods and it works :)

    I have pcos and i think cutting on carbs is making me feel less larthegic. I have decided to cut bread completely for now and just sticking to cereal and soups.

    oh i don't know. i only do green days, so i'm talking from a green day point of view. i'm a vegetarian so i'm not very clued up on red days, except if you have pasta as a b choice it has to be wholemeal :)
