    what do you call a portion?

    So i know with rice & pasta don't need to be measured on extra easy.

    But I'm just curious as to what other people call a portion.

    For rice I have an uncles Bens boil in the bag portion for 1 (62.5g I think).

    For pasta...just whatever looks right,

    & for potatoes, 1 or 2 for dinner depending on how hungry I am. Or if it's for lunch, just one.


    I'd love to hear what others think.

    I do a ramekin of rice and a mug (just short of) for pasta, seems about right. I know it's supposed to be 75g for pasta, but I've never bothered seeing how much that is! Having said that, with a mug I do normally have some leftover at the end!

    I never measure or count how much I'm having. If I'm starving I'll have a lot, if I'm less hungry I'll do a bit less. I love pasta and slimming world chips (not together!) and sometimes feel like I have giant portions! However, the weight is falling off so I'm not worrying!

    I don't measure but I'm going to start I have cup measurements so probably half a cup for rice and a cup or pasta. I normally go very over the top with pasta and rice and end up overeating!

    I don't measure either. For rice I have the Batchelor's Super Rice packets a fair bit (I can struggle cooking rice sometimes and I like their flavours) but I don't always eat the whole lot. I usually use them as part of a meal - so maybe make stir fried veggies and meat and mix it all together with the rice. I might eat about half that lot and leave the rest for the following day's lunch.

    With pasta, I've noticed how I am using less though. I always used to measure in "handfulls". I used to have two huge handfulls of pasta and probably a few extra pieces "for the pot". It was literally as much as I could cram into my fist. Twice. And I've got big hands!

    Recently I've been having two small handfulls - probably half the amount I used to eat and I've been perfectly happy with that. Mind you, I also have loads of salad and stuff under it. Maybe SW have brainwashed me? (About time! )

    For most meals, I aim to have 1/3-1/2 as superfree, 1/3-1/2 as carbs, and then anything left as protein or low-fat dairy.
    And by 1/3-1/2 I mean a normal plate, not massively heaped up but not stingy either.
    Made it to target after nearly ten months on Slimming World and now working to maintain a super healthy lifestyle.
    (Not complaining if I lose a little more but the next goal is to get fit and be happy!)
