Yeah potatoes are free food, as are the baked beans. But with that you will need a superfree food to make up 1/3 of your meal. I usually do something easy, like cucumber.
Healthy choices A are your milk and other dairy products and healthy choice B is grains and breads etc.
In the book there are lists of what is which and at first I basically checked every time I thought of a food. It takes a few days or even a week till you are confident. But still the book and the app, if you want to download that, will always be helpful.

That's fab thank you! My day is planned like this apple for breakfast, only because I didn't have time for anything else!, just about to have scrambled egg on wholemeal toast for lunch and dinner is jacket potato with beans and tomato and cucumber!
Have I got the main idea right?! I think I have lol!
I'm saving my healthy choice A of milk for tea though out the day.
I will stick with super easy and see how I get on! I'm thinking my only syn will be a small amount of butter on my toast!
Sorry for hassling you about this, I really want to get the hang of it quickly so I enjoy it and its not hard work.
I drove to my mums today and gave her a pack of chocolate muffins I bought yesterday so I'm not at all tempted lol. My partner is going to have a diet change too the shopping list is taking a drastic turn! Be good for my girls too if I can stick with healthier eating and not buy in crap that we pick at.

That sounds great. I also save the milk for coffee and tea. BUT don't skimp on your syns! Seriously, you will start to feel deprived. I thought Id be so good and not have any. I did this for 3 weeks and then I upped my syns cause I cracked a little and wanted some chocolate. And BAM that week I actually had a 1/2lbs gain! Your body will adjust to no syns and when you have them they will go straight on as a weight gain. Don't skimp and be happy! I usually have a Freddo chocolate (5 syns) each day for when the boys are in bed and I am sitting down with a cuppa. And I look forward to it each day! lol I also like a coffee from my Dolce Gusto machine in the morning so I have a Skinny latte macchiato which is 2.5. So I am at least always at 7.5 a day. It keeps me happy and is I think the secret to why this diet is really doable and not a pain in my overly well developed backside! lol
btw I replaced my butter completely with cottage cheese or quark which is a bit like philadelphia. Id rather have chocolates than butter but everyone has to decide which thing they cannot live without and then adapt and adopt them for their syns.

I have what I call a syn bin which has chocolate and bits and bobs in for when I'm in need of a chocolate fix.

I highly recommend the Fakeaway and extra easy express books you can get in group. Fab recipes in both

Thanks ladies! I'm feeling deprived of the syns already lol. I might find myself a nice syn for the evenings when the girls are in bed too, just to congratulate myself for healthy eating lol!
What do you ladies have for breakfast? I had an apple this morning as I was out of time but it really didn't cut it! I want to keep my healthy extras for lunch and dinner as they are when i most need my food but want something to get me half started in the morning too!

Thanks to the original poster! It is you that gave me the kick up the backside to actually get on and do this, without this post it would have still been a reoccurring thought that I kept pushing away thinking maybe next, maybe next week!!

I usually just have a banana but I am not usually hungry in the morning. But why don't you have eggs, lean bacon with maybe mushrooms and a few tomatoes? I cannot be bothered to cook in the morning so that would be too much effort for me lol. Or have a banana and a Mullerlight Yoghurt? Most of them are free, except the really weird fancy ones. I like the vanilla one with the dark chocolate sprinkles. However, I think that those yoghurts make me more hungry but that might just be psychological lol I only have them once in a while anyway cause of that.

I usually have mullerlight with chopped up fruit in. But at the moment I hve been loving magic pancakes which is where you get porridge oats (healthy b) mix with a mullerlight (i do toffee). Leave to soak for a while usually overnight mix in two eggs and fry. I have these with chopped banana and it keep me full until lunch.

Use those syns!

That's my plan for tomorrow when the oh is off work, sausage and egg!

Need to get some muller light yoghurts today, I like yoghurt and fab they are free!
Breakfast has been a banana, lunch is a tuna mayo sandwich with salad and dinner I'm thinking a cheese and mushroom omelette.
Do I have to have super free with every meal or can I put that inbetween as fruit when I'm peckish?
Because I don't fancy fruit or veg with an omelette.

Them pancakes sound good, how much porridge oats do you add to the yoghurt? Will add some to my shopping list today!

I've seen a weight watchers support thread, I think we need a slimming world one, this thread is really keeping me going!

35g so you use your healthy b for them. I hate porridge but love the pancakes!

I'm sure missing superfree from one meal won't hurt, I've had meals without.
