Red/Green Days....

Hoping someone here can help me....

I don't go to class (as I cant afford to), but have been following Slimming World from home (I have the books etc). I've only been doing EE but I'd like to try a Red or Green day now and again and see how I get on, but cant seem to get my head round what they are, or what a SP Day is.....can anyone help?

If you've got the newest books, Red/Green days aren't as easy to explain because the hex b choices change completely depending on which day you do. If you want to try something different to normal EE, try the SP days.
SP days are basically where you eat primarily Speed or Protein food in every meal, and you don't eat any free foods such as pasta, rice, Potato, Muller yoghurts (or other syn free yoghurts).
The idea is that you eat the lower density foods which help speed your weight loss.
You still get your hex a choice, but you also get the option of 2 hex b choices.
When I've done SP days, my days food can look like this-
Breakfast: melon, strawberries, grapefruit
Snack: Apple / satsuma
Lunch: salad (lettuce, cucumber, tomato, pepper, onion, spring onion, beetroot) with ham or chicken or tuna with a salad dressing (using Syns allowance if necessary)
Snack: carrot sticks / hifi bars (or alpen light as hex b 1)
Tea: Beef burger (homemade with 5% mince) on wholemeal roll (hex b2), with lettuce, onion and tomato and butternut squash chips and mayo/ketchup using Syns allowance
SW chilli (5% mince, pepper, onion, tomatoes, kidney beans, passata, etc) with Cauliflower rice and 30g full fat cheddar (hex a)

Does that make any sense?
The butternut squash is a speed food and they make great chips. I make them the same way I would make normal potato SW chips (chop, spray with fry light and bake for 45ish minutes)
The Cauliflower rice is a great alternative too. Get some cauliflower, blitz in until rice sized and then you can either microwave it for 5-6 minutes, or I prefer to cook it in the wok with a bit of garlic and fry light on a low heat until it's done.

Great - thanks! I'll maybe give a couple of SP days a go - doesn't look too restrictive!
