Good luck, let us know how it goes over time Michelle

So you can enjoy several POUNDS of starches/day and still see good results when you follow the MWL plan. Eat when you are hungry and eat until satisfied.
Keep us posted!
veganlady wrote:Laura, I was struggling this week as well with food quantities - I really felt like I was way overeating even though it was all MWL appropriate. After many years of thinking I can only lose weight (which I obviously did not do very effectively) if I was hungry all the time, it feels almost scary to eat starches till I'm full. My body is responding though, and I'm just trying to be patient while my head catches up. So, no great answer for you, but I understand what you're saying
