Hi, not sure if this is the place to post about this but here it goes anyway.
In the food plan, when it says 1 cooked vegetable and 1 fresh vegetable, can we instead mix a smaller amount of different veg? as in instead of having a whole portion of cucumber can we have half a portion of cucumber and half a portion of pepper? also how much is a cup exactly? i'm not too sure about this.
also, in my experience fats trigger my addiction quite a lot, all the ones listed on the food plan page (mayo, oil, margarine, salad dressing), i don't think i should put them on my plan, any advice on this and on other foods that i could replace these with?
Also, sorry for "spamming" this thread, I sometimes will be unable to eat at the appropriate times due to work etc, is this ok? like tomorrow, i won't be able to have dinner till 7pm tomorrow yet i am having lunch at about 1pm as i would have had breakfast about 9am......
Just a suggestion for what it's worth.
Others have split their breakfast because of a long commute to work in the morning on the train and eat half of their breakfast right before leaving home and carry the other half and either eat it on the train or at work. And when splitting meals, it's best to have the two halves to be exactly alike - 1/2 the protein, 1/2 grain, 1/2 fruit and 1/2 dairy in each split meal.
Some have split their dinner meals because they need to eat smaller meals for medical reasons and some have added a starch/grain to lunch and split it also.
This food plan as given is only a suggestion and has helped many, many people and can be altered with your sponsor's help or your doctor's for medical reasons - I love how flexible this food plan can be.
thank you very much, that's helpful to me! how do people feel about avocado and lentils?? both things aren't on the food lists..
I am new to FAA and am very excited about following the food plan and staying away from the sugar and flour.. I know and realize that foods containing either or both are what have kept me overweight and obsessing over diets, width loss, food choices, etc! Can't wait to learn how to do an online meeting and find a sponsor!
