<sigh> i'm just old. these date from the time i actually hit my goal on WW. and the program was so much more restrictive then than it is now.
veggies were divided into 'unlimited' and '#4' types. the # 4's were the high starch veggies: corn, peas, carrots, winter squash, and onions, and you were limited to 1/2 cup per day. that's why the unlimited use of dried onion flakes, because they were considered a seasoning and not a vegetable.
and you were allowed 2 slices of bread per day. no crackers, no tortillas, no bagels. 3 times a week, instead of a slice of bread, you could have a small baked potato or 1/2 cup rice or pasta. and you could have a sandwich for lunch only if you had a bowl of cereal for breakfast.
and bread was eaten only at breakfast and lunch, and not at night.
you were required to eat fish five times a week, and canned tuna was discouraged. dairy products were limited to 16 oz of skim milk or buttermilk per day, 1/2 cup cottage cheese twice a week, and not more than 2 oz of cheese 2-3 times a week.
3 pieces of fruit. 5 servings of veg, 1 serving of #4, 1 tbs fat, and that was it!!!!
sooooo, some of the recipes did evolve strangely [i never could get over using tomato juice as a base for pasta sauce!!!!].
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
