Thank you so much for once again sharing such timely information.
Unfortunately cicumstances have arisen which will make it necessary to discontinue my active/passive participation on this site. I am hoping everything can be taken care of and I will be avidly reviewing and learning from the team by the end of next week.
It is my goal to remain on plan and take the information and the wisdom and insight gained from those on their journey to a healthier life. I wish each and every one the best as they continue.
Take care all.

Teresa

I like the sentence "moderation is the key" and also eat until satisfied.
I've read somewhere that it's better to stop eating when 80% full because if we wait 20 minutes, we'll feel full.

I'm happy to say I follow their suggestions.

Thank you Barbara

Barb that is a good article. I learned to steer clear of those foods a long time ago. Like Nell I still have to measure my portions.
Thanks for the reminder.

I find that usually I don't feel full until I've eaten more than I should. That's why I still portion food onto my plate before taking it to the table. I have to rely on the plan to tell me when to eat and how much, and that's fine with me. The only thing I can eat until I'm stuffed is lettuce. Which is also fine with me.

now that you've clean that pantry......

Whether its broccoli or pizza, you probably know that getting children to eat can sometimes be a struggle. They take a bite, squirm around as they chew, and, of course, play with their food. If you’re lucky, they do eat a nutritious meal – but they always stop when they’ve had enough, not necessarily when their plate is clean. Getting an adult to eat, on the other hand, is rarely a problem. In fact, it’s usually the opposite scenario – we can’t stop ourselves! Is there something we can learn from how a child eats? You bet! Children listen to the instinctual cues that their bodies send, so they stop when they’re full. You need to get in tune with these signals. If you pay close attention while you eat, you’ll notice that the pleasure you get from food tends to diminish as you continue to eat. This is a sign that your body has had enough. Listen to your body and eat just until you’re satisfied, not stuffed, and weight management will be child’s play.

Spring Clean Your Diet!

No matter which diet you're following, there are a few foods that anyone serious about losing weight should give the boot. Here are the "culprits" I suggest you free from your fridge and purge from your pantry for a good, old-fashioned spring cleaning of your diet.
