I will take the advice of increasing my protein and might do that by adding some chicken to my afternoon salad.

Unfortunately I cannot cook fish in my house as my husband is allergic, otherwise I'm sure 8oz of fish isn't quite as filling as chicken or beef

I have given up on the gum as that seems to be controversial even though my coach says it is fine
Sorry, that was pretty confusing .

Although I used WF (which doesn't count as oil) when I made my own dressings I subtracted any amount I used in cooking from the amount I could use on salads.

Before starting this plan I was a "lots of creamy dressing" salad eater, and found that I acquired a taste for less dressing and started enjoying the flavor of the veggies. Mind you my salad was always cucumber, green pepper and purple onion - not a big lettuce eater.
