SP and healthy B (s)

can anyone explain why SP cut back on those starchy veg and bowls of pasta then allow 2 healthy b's.

Thanks, I've just been having a look at some other options and I'm a little confused.
On the list of healthy extra's
Under Alpen Light Cereal bars it has "2 alpen light cereal bars"
The same for ryvieta dark, says 2 then underneath 4.
Anybody know what that's about?

I've rejoined recently and questioned the same thing this morning.

I think it's because you could have 4 calorie wise, but 2 is sufficient to get the required amount of fibre.

So is an Alpen bar speed food? (s)

Haven't found slimming world confusing until now

I guess if you have one its not speed but less calories? I don't really know!

LavenderRains · 26/01/2017 06:45

I think it means on a 'normal' day you can have 4 ryvita for hexB but if you are doing an SP day you could still have 4 but if you really want to speed things along and have less calories then have 2

I have to say the SP thing doesn't seem to work for me!

All it means is that if you chose two alien lights rather than four you will lose more. It's the speedy choice ie better loss.
Sp works really well if you usually eat loads of carbs. I personally don't like it because I hate the fruit restrictions. I would rather be conscious of how many carbs I'm eating and enjoy the fruit.
