    Starting on Tuesday on the Stage 2 and am a little confised regarding the portion size of lettuce etc.

    Call me stupid (shouldn't really offer that) but how do you measure 3 tablespoons of a large leafed veg ?

    Would I be better chopping up the veg in a blender and measuring that way ?

    Hi, I used to chop it up but not in a blender, I think it would go mushy if you did that!

    Don't measure it, what it means is a very small portion but it really isn't going to make you put on weight if you have 4 or 2 spoons so just take a good guess and you'll be fine.

    Thanks Icemoose, I thought most of the calories would be in the meat/fish anyway. Not too keen on veg to be honest !
