    I have been doing SW for four weeks now and have only tried green. I find it easy to stick to and have found some great recipes. I am tempted to try some red days at some point but am more than happy with the green plan.

    Green is my favourite, I love it - so easy, so many yummy things to eat, and I never feel hungry on a green day.

    I get better losses on red but struggle to feel inspired for meals - tends to be meat of some description with steamed veg, which never seems that appealing. The exception is when I do slow cooked stews, casseroles etc, or shepherd's pie. Always feel like red days take more planning, whereas on green I feel I can be more spontaneous depending what I fancy.

    I've not really done many EE days since I tried red and green. I usually use my Hexs for breakfast so I feel like I'm missing out by not getting the extra A and B to use later in the day. Also find it hard to stick to the 1/3rd superfree, and so don't get the losses I do on red and green. It is definitely the better plan if going out for a meal, though!

    I think I'm strange because I tend to have better losses on EE than green. I like my carbs, and sometimes will do a green day but don't go mad and probably eat no more than I would doing EE, but I do tend to use a lot of my Hex on cheese, and I think that stops me having good losses. I'm not sure that its genuine or just from the extra salt though.

    I tend to only do green if I am having a veggie day as I don't want to use my Hex on meat/fish - I might as well do EE then. I also like being "made" to eat then 1/3 of superfree, as I think that sets up better habits for life.

    Green for me too.

    I have tried EE quite often, but I just prefer the two HEs.
    Also, I only cook for myself and have no freezer, so if I buy meat, I literally have to have that meet for every dinner all week.

    Green on the other hand you can use more store cupboard ingredients which don't go off.

    I have been going to sw 4weeks and hav only done ee. I am loving it I feel like I an eating a big variety of food. I am breast feeding so I get extra healthy extras anyway so haven't seen a need to try red or green days.

    I've been doing it for 7 months and have stuck with EE however this week I'm going to try Green because you get the extra HE's and I'm finding lunches during winter a bit of a slog.

    I'm the same as you. I'm on EE but considering moving to Green and Red days, because I have trouble being able to stick to the mandatory 'third of your plate superfree' rule.

    I'll see how I get on over the next couple of weeks, but if my losses don't pick up I'd be tempted to change.

    Forgot to add - I also do the old Mix to Match plan quite a bit as well, as it means the best of both worlds (red and green)!

    I prefer red days, I like to have 2 hex A/B a day. I also feel less bloated and get fuller from meat that I do from carbs.
    Thought I'd struggle with meals but its actually been ok, for example, cottage pie-I use swede and carrot mash instead of spuds or I will use a wholemeal pitta with curry or chilli rather than rice.
