Or just read the discussion boards. I am encouraged whenever I read about another person's NoS journey. I am still relatively new at this so I do find that coming back from S days required a bit more focus in order to keep my N days green. In fact, I was really hungry this afternoon. My coworkers we...

Shared dishes- how do I do the 1 plate rule?

Any ideas how to do the one plate rule if all the dishes are shared? Daily dinner looks like this: 3 or 4 dishes that are shared. These are placed on the table so people can scoop or pick up what they want and place the food in their bowl. I don't think the small bowl can hold the amount of food on ...
