I joined online about two months ago. Used the 7 day starter menus and lost a bit.

However I now want to make up my own menus but just cannot get the hang of what I can have in a day. Syns I get, but the extras I can't seem to get my head around.

Is there an easy way to work this out? I really want to give this a go. Have been ill and put on a lot of weight. Also making me a bit slow mentally...I'm using that as an excuse for my lack of understanding of what is probably a really easy plan to follow.

Thank you for listening and any help you can give me flowers

Go back to basics and reread everything you've got access to.

Hexa x1 a day
Hexb x1 a day
A third of meals speed as listed
5-15 syns a day

1/3 of your plate needs to be speed fruit or veg. Put your protein and carbs on the other 2/3.

1 HEA which is cheese or milk measured out.

1 HEB is your fiber so bread, cereal, cereal bars, nuts, etc.

Read your books and read and read.

As any questions that you have.

Yesterday I had a fruit Omelette which was 2 eggs, a sprinkling of sweetener, made up in the frying pan. Then topped with yoghurt and fruit.

Lunch was scotch Broth mix with speed veg.

Dinner was pasta Bolognese Bake from the SW recipes. HEA cheese.

My snacks were apple, popcorn 2.5 syns, yoghurt, plums and carrot. Crisps at 4syns, 2 macaroon hifi bars.

Thank you very much both. I am finding the website hard to navigate I think that is half the problem. Don't want to do physical group though.

Is there a book that has all the basic info in it that I can follow that you know of?

I bought a recipe book but its from the old plan so pretty useless to me at present. Maybe I can adapt this when I have more of an idea of what I am doing.

I really appreciate your help thank you flowers

Do you not get sent a book with online plans then? confused

Might be wroth going to a group once, to get the new member talk from the leader, plus the books, espceially if there's a free joining voucher in one of the women's mags ;)

You only get the books on the top plan Foof. I only know cos my friends have gone for the top one. Another friend really struggled to find the lists of speed etc online as it's no laid out like the books. It just says free x

That's shocking shock

I'm doing online and have been able to download lists of food types. It's in in the My Links section - log into the site, choose Home, and there's a grey box on the right hand side that says "My Links". Under that was "Your Food Optimising pdf" which is a printable list of all the speed / non-speed foods, lists of healthy extra As and Bs, and lists of syns. It's 23 pages long but it does explain EVERYTHING! If you can't find it, PM me.

B1rdonawire thank you! I found that section and it really does cover everything! Printing it out now. Thank you so much, just from a quick glance it makes much more sense.

@Groovee I'll pm you now, thank you flowers

Thanks all for your help smile

Oh great, well done - it's an incredibly "quirky" site to navigate but I think I've got used to it a bit now and can usually find what I need! Took me a week or two though, of logging in every day and filling in the planner. In fact, it took me ages and ages just to figure out that on the planner (in Weight Loss tools) I was meant to click "create my extra easy plan" in order to get a blank day to fill in. Eventually I twigged "extra easy" is their name for "standard" grin
