The balance (and importance) of free food?
I Should know this really considering I'm at target but I only got there by doing success express for the last few pounds. I'm part of a group but I only go when I can afford a babysitter and as it goes on until 9 pm some nights I tend just to go once a month or especially for taster nights etc.
I'm wondering have I missed 'the big picture' here and actually I am doing it right but could do it better.
I only really snack on superfree fruit or my healthy extras and during a conversation about what we eat at class one night I came away thinking that I eat too much sf and not enough free food. I went through a few typical days with my consultant and she kind if said I'm 'too hard on myself' and that I was not eating near enough free foods and sometimes, going hungry.
My worry now is if I change and eat more free that in my head that equals more food (calories), whilst I understand we are not calorie counting I'm just saying that snacking on say a chicken drumstick or ham would be worse than say a banana or an apple. Truth is I rarely would eat free food like that in between meals :/
The answer I guess is simple, try a week of upping my free and see what it does but I'm a bit scared!
Any advise or past experiences very welcome please!
