Hi there,

I hope you can help me ! Is it right that I can eat as much free food type chicken or lean meat -5% fat or quorn with as much as rice or bulgur wheat or pasta (must be dried). I have to make sure 1/3 is super free food like vegetable, salad, radish, courgettes etc...

With this I need 2 healthy extras which I can choose in the food optimising book.

I can have 15 syns and refer myself to the book !!

Do I sound like I understand it ?? Thank you !!

Yes just make sure you have one healthy option A and one healthy option B (not 2 from one!) lots of free/speed food with meals (some people have pasta/meat and then have fruit as pudding for speed food but the idea is free/speed food eaten with the meal to fill you up and stop you over eating) I love Sw been doing it for 2 years and lost 3.5 stone and my friend lost almost 5 stone and we've both maintained whilst having a 'life' x

I think you need to give your consultant a ring she won't mind and can talk it all through with you. Superfree is long gone in SW so I don't know where you are getting that from. Some fruit and veg are Speed and they need to be 1/3 of your plate. Honestly your consultant won't mind she will be happy to help.

I joined two weeks ago and I understand it as you've described. It's 1/3 speed foods (not superfree) but yeh sounds like you've got it.

Basically bread, fat and sugar is out unless you use your syns for it.

I keep forgetting to have enough veg. I did veg, chicken and pasta for tea, but I think it was too much pasta and not enough veg. Changing that ratio is going to be key I think

What I do is a massive salad which last me 2-3 days and I change the carbs and toppings...could be Quorn pieces or tuna with bulgur wheat or pasta or giant couscous !

Today is shopping day, so I need to do a meal plan and write a list...

What do you put in your salad? I was looking at buying a spiraliser thing as well. We grow courgettes in the garden, and always have a massive glut so incorporating them into everything would really help!

Can you spiralise rhubarb I wonder...

It was shopping day for me yesterday ! The salad is a mix of crunchy salad + rocket or else with cucumber, raddish, tomatoes, sweetcorn, spring onion, gratted carrots or pepper...etc...Friday for dinner I had : tin of tuna + loads of bulgur wheat + loads of cucumber, sweet corn, tomatoes, Spring onion + 2 tbs of lighter than light Hellman mayonnaise (1 syn)...

I have a Spiritualizer, it's great ! I'd try to spiritualize the rubarbs ! You never know !!!
