I don't know about the rest of you bandits out there, but I constantly struggle to define what normal eating is. But I think that as each of us are different, then what is considered "normal" should also be different!
Last night I had a mini quiche lorraine (about the size of my palm), I had half a chat potato (which are the mini potatos) and 3 florets of broccoli. I ate my meal within 30 mins, small mouthfuls (I'm talking the size of my thumb nail) and I felt pleasantly full afterwards. That's what I call a "normal" meal for someone with a band. At lunch I was able to eat half of a vegetable rissole (which was made from potato, corn, beans, carrot and other bits and pieces). The portion was about the size of the palm of my hand and just as thick. Had that at 12 noon and was full until 4pm. At 4pm I had 3 water crackers with 3 slices of cheese. Perfect! Breakky I just stuck to liquids, and then a cup of tea at morning tea. There was cake yesterday for a work celebration - I didn't even think about having any... so good to have that control!
Anyhoo, did a fab boxing class this morning. Feeling pumped. Hope you all have a great day!
