In Tosca's book she recommends always having a complex carb paired with protein. I have been setting up my meal plans based on some of the ideas on eatcleandiet.com. They are just posted by other people that are following the same clean eating lifestyle. So I've been pulling things from there.

Yeah I do those last minute change ups all the time. Sometimes I just don't feel like what I had planned. If it makes for good leftovers I will often make it anyway and something else for that evening (maybe from a day or two ahead). Sounds like a good idea to take pictures. I try to do sex small meals throughout the day but it is not something I have perfected yet!

I forgot about the proportions! Thanks for the reminder!

I actually take pictures of all my meals, not snacks, just meals, so I can see how much I am eating and be reminded of it.

I will do that, do a week. Maybe switch the days around if I don't feel like eating somethig one day or meals ina day.

I am by no means an expert but what has worked best for me so far is making and printing out a weeks worth of meals on a menu and posting it on the fridge. That way when I want to reach for something to munch I am reminded that I am sticking to a plan.

Also, I went out and found some 9" dinner plates, the size that used to be the norm! Now it is common to find 12" dinner plates in most homes. What looks like a scant meal on a 12" plate looks like a feast on a 9" plate and at first this may seem silly but it psychologically works because of the way our brains see and process food. It took me a few weeks to notice a difference with this trick but now I look at my nice full plate and make sure to slowly savor every bite. I make sure to have half of my plate vegetables, one quarter a whole grain starch, and one quarter a lean protein.

These things have helped me tons and I hope they help you too. Best of luck!

One day, one step at a time. We will succeed.

I am going to try and take on the task of planning my meals now, and hopefully soon my husband.

So I am wondering if there is any specific way to do this? Do I have to have a certain amount of carbs/fat/protein in each meal? Is there a specific way to vary the types of foods I eat so I Get a balanced diet?
What are your tricks?

Please share.
