super free

#1
I understand the concept of having your plate 1/3 super free so you don't eat as much free, but what I don't get it, even when my plate is 1/3 super free I still eat the rest of my plate and never leave anything!!
Even yesterday I had a punnet of strawberries before my meal and still ate the same amount that I would have eaten without the strawberries.
Am I the only one :(? haha

Nope. This is why I don't actually bother sometimes. If I'm going to have a jp I just have the jp cause I'll eat it all whether I have salad or not! I know it's about staying fuller for longer too, but I'm going to have a piece of fruit snack with my brew at break anyway so I'm limiting what I'm eating by not having it!

Well it depends I guess. A few meals that have fixed sizes (eg chicken breast / fish & chips / toast etc) I am gonna eat the same amount regardless of whether I eat SF with/before it as that *is the size of* a chicken breast/fish/piece of toast.

This is one of the reasons it is not the best idea to have your superfree as *separate from* the meal on your plate (eg fruit before/after) as the portion of stuff on your plate doesn't change.

If you followed the rule properly you should only be filling you plate 2/3 full if you are eating the 1/3 superfree separately - if you want strawberries separately as your SF (whether before or after) then you should only be filling your plate 2/3 full. If you're not doing that it's not that youre "eating the same amount anyway", its that you're not following the plan properly - you're eating more than a plateful. More than you need.

Sorry, i must be being stupid here cos I don't get what you mean.

You aren't supposed to eat superfree as well as the portion you would have eaten pre SW, you're supposed to eat it instead of.

So, for example, Pre SW a 500G pack of mince would serve me & my OH 1 meal. Now it serves us for 2 meals each, and I imagine as I loose more wieght and therefore need less food it will go even further.

So if you eat a punnet of Strawberries, and then have a full plate of dinner with no Superfree, thats not following plan as its recommended.

As Ermintrude says, if you don't have any superfree on your plate, don't fill your plate.

I was on here the other day and read a post where someone said you could eat your 1/3 superfree before your meal, so on saturday night I had a punnet of strawberries before my meal, I then had my meal which also contained 1/3 superfree and i still ate it all

Understood - but did you stop eating when you were full or did you just clear your plate cos thats what you've always done?? Not matter how healthy the food, if you eat too much of it you won't loose weight!
