Chick Pea Dahl - Portion?

#1
I'm planning to have Asda Chick Pea Dahl tomorrow with either some rice or SW chips.......would 1/2 a tin be enough?.....really stuck up on portions. I know they say eat til satisfied but having come from VLC diet last year I think my views on this are not real if that makes sense.
I need to eat more "normal" portions but dont know what that is anymore.

Thanks in advance

When I started SW at the beginning I ate HUGE portions because I could- that is the beauty of SW. Over time I have come to realise that portion control was a big problem for me and as my weight dropped I have gradually started addressing this. In the old days I would have had the full tim on a large jacket, and this is still fine if it is actually what it takes to satisfy you. Now I would either have a full tin in a bowl on its own OR half a tin with a small portion of rice or jacket.

Why don't you have half with rice/spuds and then if after you have finished eating you are still hungry, have the other half?

I generally have a whole tin too and then a small portion of either rice, or syn free chips to go with it.

I ALWAYS have a full tin, and add HEAPS of mushroms to it, too! lol That gives me my 1/3 SF, 'allowing' me to have it with a full portion of tricolour/pilau rice from Asda (usually with onion and peppers added, and fried/simmered in a little stock), making the whole meal for well under 5 syns (different rices vary) - feels like a big take away portion, but tastes even better.

Couldn't imagine having half a can? lol

ABout to have a full tin of it with brown rice for my tea. Love the stuff but don't go to ASDA v. often so tend to buy it in bulk.

I take a full tin and stir in some onions(pre fried in frylight), Butternut squash, spinach and chicken pieces. It then does me 2 meals. I serve it with rice or a jacket potato.
