    hiya, just almost at the end of my first week on red, after feeling lousy for a few days today i feel soooo much better! i've tried searching, but can't seem to find much on following the red only plan. in fact i think i only know 1 other person on here doing so. need to find some inspiration for future weeks as i think i'm on red to stay. surely there is more than 2 people doing all red here?

    hello!!! guilty as charged - i am a RED day fan through and through - although Weekends i tend to be a EE girl for ease, and also to have a break from RED.....it says in the books to have a balanced diet you shouldnt do RED all the time.

    Having a red day today- mmmm Nandos!!! I also have a food porn thread too! (see link in my siggie)

    I do red days now about 95% of the time. My second week I didn't lose on EE (my fault I am sure) so I swapped to red and found that the added restriction of red allowed me to be more disiplined. I think I would be ok on EE again now but I am very happy on red so I wait until I fancy a change.

    I am fitting a three red days in this coming week and I hope to do 3-5 red days per week from then on as I know I also lose faster when cutting right back on carbs. I wish I could devote more days to red, but I find it more expensive than green.

    I have a food diary set up over in the food diary section, so I will be listing what I am eating everyday if you ever need any inspiration. I read a few peoples diaries to get some new ideas lol x

    Hi I also do 90% red days, however as others have said I add at least 1 green day a week as I find it helps my losses giving my body a change.

    I'm also a red girl, much prefer what I can eat on red, and feel much fuller.
    The only time that I do extra easy is when I have pasta or rice as part of my main meal, which is only one or the other, once a week, and the occassional green day if I fancy a Mr.mash pizza with lots of cheese.

    My typical week is 3 red, 3 green and 1 EE. Love red days though, I find they make me think about what I'm eating more rather than just making pasta or something simple.

    Love butternut squash on a red day, either roasted and mashed or as chips.

    Best of luck to you x

    I do mostly red days too with the odd EE or green at the weekend. I initially tried it to kick start my losses but after the first week enjoyed it so much that I have tended to stick to it for the majority of the time.

    yeah i have to admit i started red days to rein me in, i cheat too easy i think on ee and by changing plan it was like starting over, did what i intended it to do anyhoo. although i did nick 3 weetabix minis off my son this morning, but i'd not had any hexb's or much else except a banana and some chicken. (wi tonight, so i tend to eat after wi) i have found today that i'm not as hungry as i have been before, don't know if that is just today or what. really wanna give the bns a go tonight, need to figure what to have with it. was gonna try and make chips with it, need something i can make in a chip way to fool my brain. aubergine and me did not agree last night. it was all creamy and slimy and wasn't that nice. so in a soup with that one i think. once i get a new liquidizer after frying the last one making thai chicken cakes the other night.....lol
