  1. I still quite new to THM and I'm having a problem with E meals. How does a carton of 000 yogurt with a diced apple and cinnamon constitute an E meal? I would think the carb count would be too low plus a small carton of yogurt and some apple wouldn't hold me until lunch. As I said I'm new to this and I'm probably missing something.

    1. Anytime you eat a whole apple that automatically kicks it into an E meal. There are more than 10g carbs in the apple alone. If this os not enought to hold you til lunch feel free to add more. I eat breakfast at 8:30 and lunch at 12 so I don't have time for a snack in between. If you eat earlier feel free to sneak in a snack in the morning.

    2. Thanks, I didn't realize the apple was that many carbs. Would that be a small apple? What might I add to the breakfast or would you suggest a snack midmorning instead? I eat about 6:30.

    3. What about putting a handful of rolled oats in your yoghurt? That's a good E and will keep you full longe

  2. Actually that sounds very good. I like oatmeal especially baked and adding the oats to yogurt would give it an almost crunchy granola texture.

  3. Would the same yogurt with berries be considered what please. I am brand new, just finished the book, and trying to figure this all out! Thanks so much!

    1. If it's strawberries or less than a 1/4 c blueberries, then FP. More than 1/4 c blueberries then an E. Strawberries are an FP.
