Slow and steady...

As much as is necessary at the time.

SW differs from WW in that you don't have defined portion sizes. The plan recognises that what fills one person up won't even begin to scratch the surface for another person.

The plan relies on you to understand your body and to recognise when you are full (and therefore when to stop eating). But should you not be able to recognise the signs yet, it gives you the option to eat and eat and eat and still lose weight.

Try and break the habit of the WW portion sizes, put away the scales (except for your HEX's) and go by eye when putting things on your plate, eat until your full and then stop.

I eat so much, and still lose, but I stick to the plan. I don't feel deprived and would rather eat lots of food on plan and feel full than start to crave unwise choices even though the portions are huge!!
This is my 2nd week of doing SW. I did WW for years but found the pro points were very limiting as I'm a vegetarian.
I now eat bread, cheese and potato which i would not have dreamed of.
I have a quick breafast because I hate breakfast but 2 big meals at lunch-followed by yogurt and dinner followed by a fruit salad. Mmm ;)

I defo stick to plan better when i have bigger portions at meal times! I try to limit pasta, meat and potatoes etc to the reccomended portion sizes on the pack, but i find when i do this i am hungry after a meal and eat something i shouldn't!
