Hello
I'm new to Ip and I know the basics but don't think I am eating the right amount of food.
How important is measuring the foods?
For lunch you need 2 cups of veggies and lettuce?
For dinner how much protein can you have and how bad is it if you eat more protein?
I need salad dressing recipes please
Thanks:)

It is VERY important to measure the foods - not just to manage what you're eating daily, but to learn correct portions. Doing it every day now will set you up to be able to "eyeball" things better later on. You also want to make sure you're getting ALL four cups of veggies in every day, no skimping. We need every bit of food we're allowed on the diet.

Lettuce is not mandatory at any point of the day, but it IS unlimited - so have lettuce salad as often as you want. There are NOT hard rules about when you have to eat your foods, as long as you get in everything (3 packets, 4 cups veggies, 6-8oz meat protein, water and supplements), you can break it up in a way that works best for you.

Your dinner protein should be 6-8oz measured BEFORE cooking. Meat shrinks when it is cooked. It's not the end of the world if you eat a little extra protein now and then, but don't go overboard and don't do it too often - again, part of the process here is learning portion sizes and measuring so you get in the habit. Little things like that make you all the more successful once you get to maintenance.

There are several recipe threads on this forum, including salad dressing recipes - search around and see what you find!

Every body is different. For me, it was a few weeks before i really noticed my clothes fitting differently, some see that sooner, others later. Your body will give up the weight one way or the other, but it's tough to put a time frame on it.

Your husband may want to try adding an extra packet every day for a while - one HB egg is fine but several in a day isn't necessarily good. Also any time you feel hunger you want to make sure it is TRUE hunger and not just mental hunger - or thirst. Sometimes when we are feeling hungry, the truth is we are THIRSTY! Drink a big glass of water. Wait half an hour. If the hunger is still bad, it's probably real hunger. If it lessens or goes away, it wasn't really hunger in the first place. Lettuce-only salads are my way of dealing with true hunger when it hits me!
