So, since I'm running so late on this post, and my day, I will just give a quick tip to you all. I had it posted before, but some may not have seen it, so I'm going to add it again, because it is very helpful. When you eat out, or go to a friends house for dinner, and can't count calories, and do know what to do...here's a general guideline that you can follow. Just divide your plate into 3 sections. You should fill one half of your plate with vegetables...preferably, no salt, butter, creams, etc. Then one quarter of the plate should be your proteins...either beans, or meat or whatever your protein source is. A good way to portion your meat, is it shouldn't be bigger than the palm of your hand. Fatty cuts of steak, pork and shrimp are not the healthiest meat choices, but if that's what your being served, by all means, eat it. Just keep that portion down. The other quarter of your plate should be your starch or complex carbohydrates...rice, potatoes, slice of bread..etc. Obviously again, as plain as you get it, but don't be rude to your hostesses either. If you stick to these portions and don't over indulge in dessert, you can eat just about anything you're being served, just be smart about it. If the food is not the healthiest, get a small plate, or don't fill up the entire thing! Here's my picture below of what your plate should look like...my circle is having a bad day, but you get the idea!
I hope this can help somebody! You all have a wonderful Wednesday! I hope to be able to tell you next week, that I have smashed the 20 pound mark, and am close to my half way mark of 25 pounds!
