She didn't say anything about cheat meals, but she's also very down to earth and realises that people need to have their 'off' days. We just discuss ways to still have the unhealthy options combined with some healthy choices so it's not all bad, e.g. if you want pizza, either make your own, or ave 2 slices combined with a salad.
I'm loving putting more vegies into all my meals though. Hubby & I had scrambled eggs yesterday and I put capsicum, eggplant, peas and tomatoes into them. Was soooo yummy. And cause there were so many vegies in there, I only needed 1 piece of toast with them to fill me up.
I am still struggling with only having small serves of carbs though. For those of you, who like me, had no clue what 1 serve equated to, 1 serve =
- 1/2 cup cooked pasta
- 1/3 cup cooked rice
- 1 medium potato
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup sweet potato
- 1/2 cup corn kernels
Try using a measuring cup one meal to see how much this equates to - it'll really show you how much we over eat rice & pasta in our evening meals! Hubby almost died the first night when I served him only 1/3 cup of rice, I think he def expected to still be hungry, but after eating his vegies, he said he was feeling satisfies.
