would reallly appreciate it!

B- oat porridge with sweetner
half a banana.

L- mugshot, half a piece of bread

s- 1/4 of chicken breast roasted

D- steamed fish, SW chips and beans with vinigar.

S- Frozen WW vanialla yogart (ff)

hi, that looks like extra easy menu, the porridge (28gm) would be your healthy extra B the half bread would have to be synned 3syns, you have no healthy A this would be 28gm cheese/42gm low fat cheese/ 5 laughing cow lights or 6 extra lights, milk, unsure on amount, hope someone else can help you

goodluck x

Hi vixta!

thanks for ur reply. Im not sure about syns really and what the diff is between green and EE.

am i right in thinking Red is mostly meat/ fish etc and carbs are syned? and Green is mainly carbs and protien is syned?

veg and fruit mainly are free and encouraged alot
alongside the other free food that i dnt have a list of
and the syned food which i dont have a list of yet either?

is HEA- Dairy?
HEB- fibre?

Hi ya,
what you need to do is get hold of the set of the books. You can get them off Ebay at a cost, or you could join a class for the 1st week to get the talk and the books, and not go back if you cant make it everyweek. bit un-orthordox, but will get you this info needed.

Red days are indeed meat and fish based, with 2 x HEA and 2 x HEB. potato and pasta are limited
green days are carb based, 2 HEA and 2 HEB and limited meat and fish
EE you can have all the free food on a red and a green BUT each meal must be made up of 1/3 SUPERFREE food. you can only have 1 HEA and 1 HEB.

On all plans you can have 5-15 syns a day. Its best to start on 15 and EAT them, then later if you start slowing in losses you can cut back the syns.

The key to this plan is to EAT, eat lots of superfree, and eat until you are satisfied NOT stuffed.

Have a good search on the site, there is TONS of info and syn values for lots.
Have a good look through others diarys and the recipe section

Do you prefer to eat more meat? more carbs or a mix of both?? For me as a veggie, i obviously do 100% green days.

so far your days dont look they have enough food on a day, id be starving.

From the look of your diary it seems like Extra Easy would be the best plan for you as you seem to like meat with rice and potatoes etc...

If you are following EE then you can only have 1 HEA and 1 HEB so that would be 2 Weetabix with milk for example.

On EE you can have any basics like rice, pasta, potato, lean chicken, beef, lamb etc... but you must fill a third of your plate with low cal veg like carrots, cauli etc.

So from the menus above on EE

b- 2 weetabix HEA, skimmed milk HEB, sweetner?? sweetner is free
s- coffee from vending machine?? syns for milk and sugar (if you didn't use all your allowance of milk then just syn for sugar, use the rule 20 cals = 1 syn)
l- mugshot??, shape FF yogart? These are both free, but creamy cheese Mugshot has syns (check out frequently asked syns section in the sticky)
s- snack a jack 4.5 syns(i found this out!)
d- Steamed veg and rice?? with chicken (1/2breast) ?? On EE you could have any amount of chicken (no skin) and rice as long as the steamed veg made up a third of the plate.

The best advice I could give is to have a look at the Extra Easy diaries on here, that's what I did when I first started SW.

It won't take you long to get the hang of it! xx

No worries hun! It's prob water and boosting so don't worry. I'm a serial weighed but learning to WI once a week so not upset as your weight fluctuates throughout the week/day xxx

week 1: -0.5lbs ... :'(

Yes it does take a bit of getting used to but once you are set up its quite easy really. I do the red and green days as I have a problem with veg, your milk allowance is 350 ml skimmed milk per day, semi is 250 ml I think. I have skimmed milk and pour it out into a bottle every day so I dont go over my allowance, which is easy to do if you like milk which I do. Try as tempting as it is not to weigh yourself more than once a week. Your body plays tricks sometimes and will fluctuate from time to time which may cause you to be disappointed unnecessarily. Getting the books is really vital as there is so much information and recipes etc. I find the meeting so full of information and am loving the virtually syn free puds. Good luck anyway, you will find loads of info on this forum and happy slimming.:D:D
