Focuses More on Carbohydrates
While the Original Plan focuses more on protein, this one is mainly for those into carbohydrates. You can eat as much pasta, potatoes and other carb products like that as you want throughout the day, without having to weigh them or point them. This is completely different from the Original Plan and is more suitable for vegetarians or vegans.
As well as that, you will have to point any meat products – and other high protein products that you eat. However, fruit and vegetables remain to be superfree foods, so you can eat as much as you want of them.
The A and B Menus
These work in the exact same way that they do on the Original Plan. You are allowed two from each of the lists, which are included in full through the SW guides. Foods include milk, cereal and bread. This does seem to be confusing at first, but the more that you read through the guidelines and follow the plan, the easier it is said to get.
Combine the Plans to Work for You
Something that most veteran SW members have said is that you will be best to combine the two plans. That doesn’t mean do them both on the same day – that definitely won’t work. It means switch plans throughout the week. Spend one day on the Original Plan (also commonly called a Red Day) and then the next day on the Green Plan (commonly called a Green Day).
Combining the two plans will give you the chance to get the most out of the nutrients in the different types of food. After all, your body does need both of them. However, it is possible to lose weight by following just one of them, if you prefer.
The Extra Easy Plan
This is a third plan available on SW and is something that I will cover in my next blog post.
