Not trying to be picky want to understand using one plate

Post by Aprilsparrow » Fri Mar 01, 2013 9:00 pm

So if I have a plate and I can fit a bowl of cereal or a container of yogurt and a piece of toast on the plate. Then I am ok? Does that sound right? Just trying to get the hang of this? I already messed up today without thinking. Had a bowl of maple brown sugar oatmeal. Full of sugar. Arrgh.

Yes. If I have a cup of yogurt, toast, eggs and bacon and can fit it all on one plate, it's fine.

Remember, it's no sweets not no sugar. The maple brown sugar oatmeal is one of those gray areas. I wouldn't call it a "fail" or mess up though I probably wouldn't buy it again once it was gone. Once you cut a lot of the obvious sweets - cookies, candy, soda pop - out of your diet the sweetened stuff regular food like cereal and yogurt will be too sweet.
