success express- disapeared off the face of the planet it seems!

#1
Hi guys,

I was just sitting here, pondering how to get to my new target weight a little faster than 1/2 a lb a week lol.. im only 3.5lbs away and i dont think i can do the whole agonising, so close but yet so far thing! LOL

so iv heard in the past (when i first joined, almost 2years ago) that SE could give you a real boost.. now, with this in mind i also remember STACEYUK doing it, and having a great loss? either that or my mind really is old before it's time lol. I have a memory like a fish..


Anywho, knowing that SW no longer endorse this plan, i decided to google.. but to no avail. Many results were for this forum, dating back to 2006.. but it appears even then no one had a clue how it worked properly.. and very few did it.. and those who did.. well, even when they explained to other members, i honest to god can't get my head around what they'r saying.


from what i gather, your plate is EE, with 2/3 superfree.. and your snacks are only superfree foods.. No free food snacks.

- and only 1 healthy extra A & B..

but then there is mention of a ratio of green and red foods.. which has thrown me..


so please please please.. if any of you know of this plan in detail.. and can explain in as simple terms as possible.. and are willing to answer my list of questions i'm sure i'l have..

help me! :D


all my love, St.Fern ;)

hey pickles, have you emailed it? nothings showing atm.. or am i being impatient? lol




Iv just found a thread on here from early last year sometime


and this is what i can gather..


SUCESS EXPRESS

Devide your plate into 3.
ONE third of your plate is free food from any plan (green or red)
example: spag bolognese, shepards pie etc.

TWO thirds of your plate must be superfree food.. ( so mainly veg and fruit)

You have 2 A choices, and 2 B choices, but all syns must be counted at the highest value

All snacks must be SUPERFREE ONLY.





Mix2max (just thought i'd drop this in also as iv found the info)

3 Meals a day, each meal must only contain foods from either red or green, but you are free to choose which meals they will be.

Example, breakfast is red ( e.g full english) lunch is green (jacket pot, beans) and tea is red ( shepards pie topped with swede)


you have 2 a's and 2 b's to chose from, but all snacks must be superfree and you must chose the highest syn value





please correct me if i have gotten it wrong!

Success Express worked well with the old definition of superfree so you should be able to include eggs, quorn, etc as part of your two thirds superfree. Using the new definition of superfree will make Success Express a lot harder than it used to be but will probably give you even better losses.

i do believe stacey used eggs etc as superfree.. like you say it would be very very difficult.. i dont like difficult ;) lol


can someone enlighten me.. do the 2/3 of superfree, are the superfree foods that may be encluded in the 1/3 of free food (e.g spag bolognese has peppers and onions) does that count towards or does it have to be completly seperate?

oh really? as in a gain or sts? or just a normal loss for you personally, nothing big?


yes i think i'm going to have to plan my syns aswell almost, to keep ontop of them!

im actually scared.

and its taken me an hour to come up with 2 days eating!

LOL.

oh yes, i am one for planning in great detail.. mainly because im terrified of messing up.. can you believe i lost 2.5stone all on green, crossed over to EE as soon as it came out but decided for a boost i'd go back to green for a week last year.. i gained 2.5lbs because i messed up the HEBs and other various things..

Ok - and breathe! Stop panicking! LOL

You will be fine! You have success express down in a nutshell. For me, the easiest way to think of it is like this:

Extra Easy but reverse the 2/3 : 1/3 rule. So basically:
  • 2/3 plate superfree and 1/3 just free.
  • Snack only on superfree foods (I included yogurt/eggs/cottage cheese in this category but main meals I just used EE superfree list)
  • 1 A & 1 B
  • Count higher syn value instead of lower like you would with EE. This is for any foods eaten outside of main meal - including starters (eg ham & melon for a starter you would have to count the ham and take the syn value for a green day as it's the higher value)
Hope that makes sense! I lost 3.5lb the week I did SE!! Good luck!

hey hun i only tend to success express for the odd meal and that works well for me!! that way you dont feel the need to chew ur arm off after all that veg and salad etc! and i tend to do it compensate those off plan meals you often cant control!! i looked at your food diary and it looks good!! hopefully it will reward you on those scales!
