    Hiya :) I started sw myself only 2 weeks and so far love the plan.

    Advice of what musts to buy would be fry light spray which is the alternative to cooking oil, several herbs+spices (paprika, cumin, coriander etc), soy sauce, worcester sauce, tobasco, if you're buying meat it needs to be extra lean, muller light yogurts (there's a list of what one's are syn free) then obv all the fruit+veg you want. I still take my food optimising book to telco with me lol xx

    Hi Angela
    Thanks for that , that's really helpful.
    I've done SW once but not since this extra easy plan came in.
    I've read all about it and think I've pretty much grasped the concept of it - only 1 hex A&B choice
    All red and green day foods free together
    1/3 supersede foods with everymeal
    And anything syned take the lowest value.

    I saw someone had made a plate to help with the 1/3 free food I may do this. I'm going to be doing plan from home and I tend to weigh myself at boots.

    Just need to make sure I'm prepared with all the essentials I need - plus I don't get paid till Friday so can't do a shop yet lol

    SuperFREE not superspeedy. Theyre not the same and there has been a bit of confusion about it. Superfree are most fruit & veg except potato, yam, avocado, parsnips. (And beans/peas/pulses are not vegetables)

    For your trolley may I suggest Kellogg's Fibre Plus Milk Chocolate Cereal Bar - a healthy chocolate bar!!! 1 of these counts as 1 HEXB. Others would suggest Alpin lights - you can have two of these as 1 HEXB. I would also add baked beans, cottage cheese (v. v. low fat) and baking potatos which are always handy. You've already mentioned fruit and veg which is good. Strawberries and raspberries are in season and melons seem to be on offer everywhere at the mo.

    Velvet Crunch - Good replacement for crisps at only 4 syns a pack
    Syn free yogurts - Muller lights, weight watchers, selected shapes

    Diet Drinks (lemonade and coke or tonic water) - a 25ml of gin, rum, pims are all 2.5 syns
    Cheese (i buy the parmazan equivalent from morrisons and I have a microplane grater. There are syns but its lovely on a spag bol or chilli.
    also vlf fromage frais which is nice stirred into make a pasta sauce.
