Yes - but for me I think it was a little "in my head" not the feeling in my tummy. After being deprived of potatoes for years of dieting, this Irish girl - said let me at 'em and I wanted seconds and thirds. This was on MWL and I still lost.
Good luck, let us know how it goes over time
This is me too. I am embarrassed to say how many weird diet plans I tried and many of them excluded starches or I had to count every grain of rice I ate. I absolutely love the fact that I can eat what I enjoy (which is rice and potatoes
) and look forward to losing weight. Hopefully this feeling of wanting to eat constantly will pass quickly for me.
My big bowl of rice probably weighs a pound or two, depending on how hungry I am . 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!
Really? POUNDS? Ok well I don't know what my bowl of rice weighs but it's smaller than a coffee mug so I should be ok. I usually have my veggies on the side but if I mix them in maybe it would weigh a pound? I'm glad to hear that a large serving is ok. Maybe that's why I'm wanting seconds and thirds - I'm starting with a fairly small or a medium portion and I maybe I really am still hungry. I am officially starting MWL today after practicing for about a week so I'll see how my weight does this week and go from there. If I need to adjust and add more veggies that's what I'll do.
Thank you for the replies!
