    I have only ever done EE but after reading some comments on here and needing a pre holiday boost, I am thinking about trying Red or Green. Any advice gratefully received. I am worried that I will get it wrong and put weight on!!

    I don't get it - I just tried changing todays diary to green and it seems I can have everything I've had today plus extra A and B - so more food than usual...how will this help me lose weight!? So instead of chicken salad for tea I could have cheese on toast!
    I don't think Red is for me as I don't eat much meat.

    with the EE plan you can have all food which is free on a red and green day 2gether but just one Hex(a) and one HeX(b)

    but if you just do red and green its 2 of each HeX

    if you dont really eat meat why are you doing the EE plan?

    Id just stick to green then.

    When I joined I was really only told about EE so that's what I did and it seems to be working! I just thought I might try Red or Green for a change. A lot of people seem to be a bit anti EE - apparently some group leaders won't do it at all.

    I haven't quite decided if I could manage a full red day, I'm not that keen on the idea of a plate of meat if I'm honest (lol). I've started doing green days and am quite getting into quorn actually. Plus you get to have cheese & a fibre+ bar as healthy extras - result!!
    I think I'll have a proper look into red day recipes and might try one some day soon.

    I couldn't do EE I find red and green days easier and if i'm undecided i'll eat from the 'free on both days' page until i can + all my favourite foods are free on both :)

    i always do EE and last week wanted get a boost for holiday and stuck with green did 100% and used 10-15syns per day and lost 4lb!

    i ate loads!!! i have a 'my green day' diary in diary section if you want take a look at my week to help you?

    i used my extra hex for weighed chicken so still could have small amount if wanted! i ate absolutely masses of potatos . made sw chips etc you can have quorn saugeetc so you really dont feel your losing out.

    tbh i enjoyed it that much im only going to do EE once in a while now and stick with green!
    good luck :)
