Portion Control Chat


I went vegetarian when I watched the documentaries on Netflix. Its changed my life drastically. I feel better such as, having more energy, being able to sleep better, not feeling so sick, losing unwanted weight, just knowing I have an overall better health. Not only that I have more people questioning if they should do it. Some of them have and said it wasn't for them but its not for everyone I guess. Anyways just wanted to say how much its made me better.

Will this diet lead to weight loss? My weight has gone out of control (alot due to hormonal shifts and intense ongoing stress) so I need to drop this belly fat & all over trim down. 1600 seems a high calorie count per day. Thanks!

One of the big criticisms I have of something like the portion control that is being blogged is the fact that it is too time consuming and also labour intensive and probably quite wasteful. More meals should be repeated and breakfasts, well, a choice of no more than two. I don't think you should have to get involved in the kitchen every day. A real turn-off I'm afraid and a way to fall off the wagon!

I am from a small Caribbean island and can not find everything in the shopping list for the 7-day meal plan, but what I do find is very expensive. Is there anything that I can substitute with?

I cooked the peppery spinach with nutmeg in a casserole dish instead of ramekins. I am measuring all my portions...is a serving of this dish a cup or a different amount?

Does anyone know in which recipe the persimmon is used? I bought it but can't find it in any of the recipes.

Hi, This is my first attempt at eating vegetarian for any period of time. I'm a good cook with meat. But, I'm lousy at vegetarian cooking. Where do I find the recipes for these dishes. I want to be successful.

We did try this diet and while successful to a point for one of us, my partner did not like some of the recipes. How do I switch out the recipes?

I have to eat a Gluten and Diary Free diet, what food swaps/portions would you recommend for the wheat and diary products on this meal plan?

I would also like to see a vegan version. Some of the dinners seem easily adjustable, but some of the snacks for example really do need alternatives (ex:greek yogurt topped with walnuts etc,) My husband and I are trying it this week. I'll report back later.
