    This is one of the most common mistakes((( No matter what kind of dieting plan you follow you need to track size of portion and amount of calories. Probably the first thing i did when decided to lose weight, was going to the shop to buy scales for food!! It was the best start;-) Before i even chose the dieting plan, I started to track calories and weighed my food. Well you have made a mistake with these calories. We all do mistakes;-) The main thing you have noticed it;-) So do not be strict to yourself and keep going! Wish you best of luck!

    When I did SW Green Days pasta was free and I ate loads of it (no wonder I gained) and like you was shocked at what 200 cals of it looked like. In my diary somewhere I wrote that I would eat more pasta after my dinner on SW just picking at the left overs in the fridge than I do for the full portion on my Dinner plate now.
    Rice is another one.
