Hi, Hope it is ok to jump right in. Would you folks mind answering a few questions about the MWL guidelines until I get my book? I have MS and have memory problems, so even though I have looked around here quite awhile I am really lost. Been doing some heavy circling and forget what I have read sometimes until I read it again. I could really use some "keep it simple stupid links" in one place. LOL
1. It says to make green & yellow vegetables 1/2 to 1/3 of your meal and to eat uncooked foods. Is there a ratio of cooked to uncooked to follow? Does it matter which one you eat or fill up on second after you get your starch?
2. If you use the recipes on the clickable list of MWL recipes do you just follow the recommended portion size and if still hungry fill up on something else? More nonstarchy veggies to keep up MWL?
I am trying to cut out drinking tea and thought you might enjoy this one. I nuked some water and grabbed a tea bag and headed back in here to look around some more. I got really engrossed in this wealth of information apparently and finished my "tea" and decided to have another cup. When I reached for my cup there was the dry tea bag sitting there. I drank a cup of hot water with nothing in it and didn't even notice. HA! HA! In my defense I use the tea bag twice and drink it black, but still
I really would appreciate your help and am so glad to have found this place!!
