I answered Yes to #6: I DO clean my plate. I carefully portion out my food onto my plate before I sit down.
I had a leader who said that a rubber spatula was essential to weight loss. If you weigh and measure every ingredient when you cook, then you get ALL of your serving. You can even lick your plate and still be OP. I can't trust my "appestat" to shut down my eating in time, so I prefer to measure it out.
Weighing and measuring everything, and writing it all down, can be a pain sometimes, but I love the peace of mind I get from never worrying about overeating.
And for what it's worth, I don't like the feeling of being full, something that happens more easily as I get older.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
