    Can i ask how much pasta/rice you normally have. I know we can eat what we want but id like to be a little controlled and not eat a mountain of pasta like i used to lol. (I only do one green day a week)

    I eat the recommended portion size given on the pack, roughly 75g rice and 75-100g pasta.
    Also, I follow the amounts given in the SW recipes which is pretty much the same as above.

    Well last night I had quorn pilaf from an old SW magazine and it called for 5oz rice for a single-person recipe. That's 140g and I ate it all - yummy it was too! Pasta I tend not to weight but I usually get 4 servings from a 500g bag so that would be 125g.

    The recommended amount on the pack is not usually enough for me.

    I generally have 50g rice, and between 60 - 75g pasta, depending on what I am having it with.
    So for example - carbonara, where its just a bit of bacon and some mushrooms etc - I would have 75g pasta, where as a spag bol, id rather have more of the bol - so reduce down the pasta to 60g!
    You of course wouldnt have to do that, just my personal preference.

    I find the recommended amounts too much so I also have about 50g of rice and 75g Pasta.

    Also depends if having a lunch or dinner as I will use slightly less for lunch!

    I have more than the recommended amount - whoops! Probably 100g-ish for rice and 120g for pasta. Personally I don't think that's excessive, but may have to moderate if weight loss slows down.

    I use a handful of rice (dried) but it's usually just too much, and a handful of pasta - per person
