I'm sure this has been dicussed before, but I have not come accross it. I just want to know if I can mix my proteins, like I dont want just chicken and lettuce for lunch. Can I put some eggs and cheese in it? I know I would have to use smaller portions of each, but how does it come out? One egg equals 2oz protein? I know there are a lot of question marks but I need help. Thanks so much!!!

Sure you can mix proteins. I do parmesean crusted chicken and fish...just be sure you subtract the ammounts correctly, and don't overdo the cheese. It's got more fat that other proteins.

I was told you can't mix groups. You can divide the 4 to 6 oz. of meat, fish into what ever way you want, as long as it is in the same food group. Don't know why though?

I had been having "leftover" chicken & fish together at meals (when I cook chicken, fish, steak, etc it's never exactly in 4 ounce portions so there is always extra.) When one of the counselors saw that she recommended that I not do that because it can slow down your progress. I don't know why but that is what she said.

That is exactly what I was doing that that is exactly what my center told me! Weird that it would slow you down?!?!

Weird....I was told you can mix proteins at my center! Ugh....every center seems so different! I also use Walden Farms products b/c I was told I could. Some people say their centers don't let you. I've never had a prob w/using them, though.
