    Just wondering if my 600cal meals are wrong...

    I've been having chicken/fish/pork with cooked veggies and a carb like baked sweet potaoe/brown rice/pasta

    now is that wrong?

    Should I be having something like sandwiches/pittas/salads?

    :eek:

    eat what you like hun.... as long as you watch you dont go over your daily limits of things.....

    another thing to watch out for... (as i have to be careful) is how many carbs you consume.. i dont cut them out completly, but i have cut back, and its greatly helped...

    Hi Summer

    i agree with Kes .. you don't want to leave out any food groups. You need protein, carb and fruit/veg in each meal as they are basic building blocks of nutrition. The problem is portion sizes usually. Check out the British Heart Foundation website - they have a really good thingy on portion sizes. In general though the hand rule applies:
    - protein is the size of the fleshy part of your palm (i.e. without thumb and fingers) on plate
    - veg is palm and fingers
    - carb is size of fist

    Hope that helps

    Hi Gang
    thanks for reminding me as I have stopped calorie counting hence the slow loss (0.5 over 2 weeks). So I'm back for all your fab support and Summer, the important thing is to just stay within your allowance (like i will be doing)!
