    Do you need your plate to be full to feel satisfied.? I know I do. If I have a big portion of fruit for my pud or free veg to fill the gaps on my plate, I feel full and happy.

    I also prefer my food wet with a gravy or a sauce. A free tomato sauce is great with most things and can be adapted for so many things with the addition if curry, cumin, basil, oregano even tarragon.

    What I love about SW is you can do these things and still lose weight.

    I definitely do! I hate feeling like I am depriving myself - am also just a proper greedy guts! :mad:

    Thankfully SW is one where you can sort of indulge this (obviosuly to a certain point) I'd be no good if I had to restrict myself.

    I love sauces too - I love the way you can put different herbs and spices into a tomato sauce and it can be a whole different meal again. I used to drown my sunday dinner in gravy - I am a little better with this now but would rather save my syns for that than have a yorkshire pudding :)

    SW is definitely the "diet" for me - free food for life :D

    Must say I love a gravy or sauce too. To the extent I will happily just blend down a tin of tomatoes with stock./oxo/garlic for a sauce if nothings made for the dinner.

    Ok, obviously it's just me then. I don't have to have a plate full. In fact, I quite often eat just the meat on one plate and have a salad separately.

    And I hate wet food. No sauces for me, just a drizzle at the most.

    Hey, but we are all different!!!

    Sauces and gravies are my biggest downfall, that's why I bought the SW sauces book now its not a problem - I hate dry food but I also hate juicy fruit .. go figure.... ;)

    I love a big plate of food, if I see a gap I don't like it!!
    I pile the veg and salad up all the time, can't do things by halves.
    I don't like wet food though, I'll happily eat a roast dinner without gravy and I don't really like salad dressings of any sort to be honest (unless it's ceasar!)
