  1. This sounds great! I was wondering how you handle dinner with your small group? We take turns bringing dinner to ours so 3 out of 4 weeks I have no control over the menu. Any ideas? Thanks!

    1. Everyone brings something to share. Our small group actually isn't very small, we have 8 couples, and 24 kids (I think) between us. So there is no way one family could provide all the food. We pick a cuisine, and then have everyone sign up to bring something within that cuisine. We always have just enough food and it's great because you get to try everyone's dishes. I try to bring on-plan foods.

    1. Hi Val! All breakfasts, lunches and snacks are portioned for just one unless otherwise noted. All dinners are portioned for six.

  3. so your breakfasts when you have yogurt- that's one little cup of yogurt? that's about 5 oz... and a glass of water.... that's it?? and that will hold you through to lunch time? in my tummy, that would last about one hour max. even two or three eggs for breakfast only fills me up for maybe two hours at most. any suggestions? i can't really throw a snack in there between breakfast and lunch, because there's only about 4, maybe 5, hours between the two main meals... or else i'm drinking water, trying to quiet my rumbling growling tummy, which is requesting more food much sooner than 3 hours after eating....
