I try to portion what I eat and clean my plate too. Very seldom do I go back for more. If I need more, I eat my snacks earlier.

I learned from reading the article that I definitely used to eat until I was full or stuffed. I don't engage in those behaviors anymore.

No, I'm sorry.
I printed it out in large print from a website. I'm sure you can get a book with all the exchanges but I like large print. You can also find all the information on the web.
Good luck

I'm in total agreement with Nell on this one. I portion what I eat and clean my plate. I also follow the Zone guide lines and find that I stay satisfied for 4 to 5 hours. My blood sugar stays even, I don't crave sweets and I have more energy.

Mimi do you have your diabetic exchange list cookbook on SP?

I just finished making my own beautiful book of the Diabetic exchange list by groups in LARGE print (with explanation of the exchange Diabetic plan).

Starches
Fruits
Milk and yogurt
Sweets, desserts and other carbs
Nonstarchy vegetables
Meat and meat substitutes
Fats
Free foods

It is interesting to see the portion control of each exchange.

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.

I "now" prefer to eat until I am "satisfied." I am not crazy about that "completely full" or "stuffed" feeling anymore. Since I have been faithful to my healthy lifestyle, it just feels better to stay "even" hunger wise then full, stuffed, or heaven forbid...hungry.

Mmmm... I answered "yes" to three questions and I know I don't eat until full or stuffed....

But I probably prefer to eat until I'm full, but NOT stuffed.....
Food for thought...

What do You Prefer - Eating until Full or Satisfied?
Full vs Satisfied

If you answered “Yes” to more than one or two of these questions, you probably have a habit of eating until you're full or stuffed.
