    What exactly are you having trouble with?

    I have only ever done the EE option as I find the others a bit confusing.

    I have lost 2 stone since Jan and find that I have settled into an average of 2lb a week.

    I just eat what ever is free most of the time and then syn the rest, I very rarely have all my syns (except at w/e).

    My typical day will be:-
    H/E a milk
    H/E b 40g crunchy bran.

    Salad, rissoto, mug shot or couscous.
    4 Fruit, normally either made up as a fruit salad or whole.
    1 Muller light yog either by itself or poured over the fruit salad.

    Whatever I have to make for the family, eg:- meatballs, curry or roast.

    If I get hungry I eat fruit or raw veg, drink low sugar squash and tea.

    Let me know how I can help.

    Thanks for your help, im a bit confused because it seems a bit weird mixing the two plans when I never did before.
    I love the new way its being done but how so I use the Healthy Extras correctly? I have my milk allowance and sometimes bread. If i make a curry ( with meat) do I count this as syns or Healthy Extras?
    Thank you so much for your help and keep up the good work :)

    As long as your curry is made up of at least 1/3 superfree veg it will be free as is the rice.

    On Extra Easy you get 1 HEa and 1 HEB
    If a food is free on green then it is free on EE
    If a food is free on red then it is free on EE
    Try to have one third of your plate as fruit and veg (ex potatoes, parsnips, peas and sweetcorn) - this helps limit the amount of free food you eat
    5-15 syns are usual

    So for your curry, lean meat is free on red/EE so no need to syn or HEb it.

    Thanks everyone for your help its much appreciated, I have been making the Tikka Masala (SW Recipe) and also the Rogan Josh (SW Recipe), have anyone else tried them they are delicious, a lot of prep but worth it all the same :)

    I think it is the 1/3 free people struggle with - I know from experience at our group most people neglect to have the 1/3 free, believing extra easy means they can eat what they want.

    I think you can only do it after so many posts. Check by searching the forum for newbie information :) xxx
