Hi there, new to the gi diet, need info on how many portions of rice, pasta and porridge are allowed per day. Is it possible to have porridge for breakfast, pasta with salad for lunch, and rice with evening meals without over loading the overall calories? Yesterday I had porridge oats 3 times as snacks with blueberries and nuts, along with bran flakes at breakfast and a chicken and brown rice evening meal, I am just worried incase I am overdoing it. I have put 1lb on this morning, after a weight loss of 2lbs in the last week. In the GI book it just says use common sense, but how much is too much?
