On Red days pasta/potato/rice/ beans aren't free foods.
You would have to use a Heb for these although rice isn't a heb on red, pasta has to be brown and you have to leave the skin on potatoes.
You have 2 hea's and 2 heb's on a red day whereas you only have 1 of each on EE.
If you decide to try red then make sure you read your book thoroughly so that you know it completely.

Just a word though about EE _ it's a great plan and lots of people lose lots of weight on it so you might just stick with it. I like to mix up the plans day to day, usually EE and Red, but you need to be confident that you are doing them right first.

I started on purely EE but as I've not got too much to lose I was losing very slowly (0.5lb a week max!) so I've started to do EE/Red depending on my mood!

I feel a lot smaller and I'll post back tomorrow night after WI to let you know how my experiment has gone!

Ah, but where is it written that to lose weight you have to be hungry? That's a hangover from diets that have told us we have to eat less and cut back back on the foods we like. It's the equivalent to the "you're not exercising if you can't feel the burn". It's almost a mindset that says I've been bad and now have to make myself suffer to make up for it.

I can honestly say that I ate more while losing weight than before, but the difference was that it was good quality food instead of trash ... and I was never starving.

Exactly Circle...I think the difference is that we are eating a lot, but it's a lot of healthier things than junk!
I'm definately giving EE another go this week :)
