    Potato is free Hun don't worry ...but not sure the answer to your question think it's only fresh food you can count as free so
    You'll probably have to pp it up
    And take it out of your 49 weeklies xxx

    Potatoes aren't free on the normal propoints plan.
    The simply filling plan is totally different in which you do not point at all, but you are also very limited in what you can eat as it's only healthy and filling foods allowed. It details it in the red 'live' booklet on page 31.
    Denny cottage pie would not be allowed on this though unless it was from your weeklies.

    This is a weight loss 'support' forum, therefore I don't think it's appropriate to lol at someone who is asking a genuine question. we should be helping and supporting each other on our journies, not laughing at each other!!

    Ahh very good point, I never thought of that! It's so easy to read things the wrong way! I apologise for automatically being on the defensive! X

    Yeah I have I Like it xx I find it easier to do with the no weighing aspect ...I never ate ready meals when i was doing pp ...just the occasional Ww pizza so I've found the freedom fantastic xx

    Don't get me wrong I still reach for the choc and have a pig out occasionally but we are only human xx I've heard they're gonna start pushing the simply filling plan soon (could be wrong) coz at the moment it's still hard to find info on it hence all the conflicting advice ....but I emailed ww to find out for sure xxx

    You still gonna try it Monday ??? If you need any advice just ask xx

    Yeah potatoes are 'free' on SF :) Listen to RedNicola, she's done it- I think everyone else is thinking of 'normal' ProPoints and thinking you're confused :p Basically, if you have the pocket guide or Shopping guide and a food is highlighted green or 0pp, you can eat it until you're full :D
