Salad and portion sizes

Hi, 

So I am now on the regular food plan and I am trying my best to plan out my meals, but portion size is looming over me. I have been sticking to 1/2 cup per meal. Is this right?

I was thinking of soup and salad for lunch tomorrow, but 1/4 cup of salad? Lol 

I know it sounds silly, but I am always second guessing myself when it comes to portion size.

Thanks!

Katie

Rather than stressing out, why not use measuring cups and a scale to solve the problem.  

I'm sure it will become routine after a while - don't sweat it.

If were trying to sick to a half cup I would purée the salad until I knew how much I was able to eat ie chewed up that would not equal  half of a half.

my center is hoping that I would be eating closer to a cup at a time

i had a spinach salad once for dinner and was upset with myself for not following the rules regarding protein, some have simplified it to three bites of protein for one bite of other foods like salad, vegetables or fruit.

feeling bad after did not take away the fact that was the best salad I remember tasting, so enjoy your lunch Kate
