    Hi all,

    Does anybody else do red/green days? I started today from home (have done SW in the past) and I'm a bit worried about how many green days I should have a week? In the past I've felt that I eat too much on a green day but they're more filling and easier at work.

    Any input would be great :0)

    I'm doing a mix of all 3 main plans. There are days when I just want carbs - and I can have them with SW. Then there days when all I want is steak, cold meat and stir fries. EE works the rest of the time, and is certainly the most "normal" plan for eating out and daily life.

    In the six weeks I've been doing this I have the vast majority of EE days. I've probably done five Red days and maybe 7 or 8 Green days. I like the extra HEXs you get in Red and Green :)

    I think as long as you remember the overriding "eat til you're satisfied, then stop" even for Free foods it really works.

    Thanks Theria. That's something I need to work on, not over eating. You're doing really well so I may look at the EE plan. It may be worth me joining a club but I won't be able to get to weigh-in every week so I feel it's a waste of money. I've got the books so I'll have a nosey and see what it's all about x

    I do green all the time as I'm vegetarian and it gives me a wider range of foods and meals than on Extra Easy :)

    wow Patch you've done fab! Any chance you could give me a few green meal ideas as I don't have a very good imagination!

    I too am a veggie and do Green days everyday. Usually I average out between 1.5 -2lb a week just following the green plan.

    There are so many options for green meals. I eat a lot of pasta and rice based dishes. Favourites being cheesy pasta bake and pastry-less quiche. Slimming world chips are always a favourite in our house too, along with a full roast dinner using the Quorn Family Roast joint.
