Have I got it right?

Hello ladies,

Am on SW, but want to be sure I've got it right!

So, its unlimited free food (which includes pasta/potatoes/rice???)

1 Hex A
1 Hex B

And between 5-15 syns per day?

I can't get my head around potatoes/pasta etc being free :O

Yes that's right

Some bits of advice I'd point out would be:
-ensure you've got at least 1/3 of your plate as Speed foods (marked with an 'S' in your book or on the website and also 1/3 Protein ('P' foods)
-drink plenty of water (not including tea & coffee)
-use at least 5 syns per day. People think that not using them will make them lose more, which is very likely for the first week, but the losses won't continue in the same way for very long
-eat the pasta/rice/potatoes in moderation. Measure out your portions and make sure they don't fill more than 1/3 of your meal.
-measure your healthy extra choices. going over on your 35g cheese allowance by 5g per day can add 6 syns on across the week, which doesn't sound like a lot, but if you've used all your 15 syns each day on toher things, it soon mounts up

You will get you head around it, it just takes a little getting used to

Ok, mostly I have to give up coke and sugar, but it's the coke i'll miss the most!
Right so no more than a third of my plate as carbs 1 third speed food.
So tonight I'm doing spag bol (free) so do I add a speed food to that?

I would imagine you've got at least tinned tomatoes, onion and passata in the sauce?
You could always have a small side salad with it, which I have done sometimes, but I usually just have the bolognese with a measured pasta amount

Whatever the packet says. 75g I think?
We've also got one of those spaghetti measuring things that has different sized holes depending on how many portions you want - that's dead handy

you said you will miss coke but you can have diet coke and coke zero for free, I just cut down on them and drink more water, but you can still have them
