    My Slimming World consultant repeatedly used the word 'limitless' to describe how much free food I can have. Now, on this forum I've seen lots of chat about 'eating til you're satisfied and stopping when you're full'.

    Now to me, those are too different things; I'm not satisfied til I'm stuffed (there's a reason I need to lose weight!)

    So honestly, can we eat limitless amounts of pasta/rice/meat or not?

    In your books it should say eat until you are satisfied.
    You can eat limitless amounts as in there are no limits set :) and no weighing and measuring of most things.

    I often eat until I am very very full, it never harmed me!!

    Personally I don't think the word limitless is very helpful, I used to remember my mum doing this plan years ago and standing at the kitchen counter eating a whole chicken.

    For me I understand the concept of it being free, but I certainly would never do what mum did and eat a whole chicken I stick to what I feel is a sensible portion for me, maybe a few slices or 3 chicken thighs.

    I suppose we are all different and portion sizes will be.

    Yes you can eat limitless amounts but I would recommend that you remember to add veg to the meat/pasta/rice, especially if you are doing EE.
    I also suggest you eat until you are full, and not stuffed until you can barely move!

    I think its good when they say limitless :) I personally think that there is nothing worse than a diet that says you cant have this you cant have that!! That makes me want more!! I think by saying "you can have endless amounts of free food" makes me calm down a little and certainly not feel bad when I have had a million potatoes if I am that extra bit piggy.. People have been doing this plan for years and years! Its obviously worked for them.. =)
