I think I am finally getting the hang of meal planning now. Most days I stay within all my allowances, and on the odd occasions things don't quite add up I am only a fraction under.
I am also finding that the weight comes off better if I keep my calorie allowance on the high side of my allowance. I find this interesting because every diet I have had before has used the principal of limiting, often severely, the amount of food eaten an therefore the calories. They didn't work though!!
Ok, ok, yes I know - SP is always telling us that its portion control combined with nutrient control that matters. However when one has learnt calorie control all ones life, to be able to eat, what for me is a substantial amount of food, and lose weight, is totally foreign and has taken time to get my head around.
