While I've never been able to get an "official" answer from my COD to this question, I personally believe it's to do with educating clients about portion size/control and to give some structure to the program - make us think about what we're eating. How much bang we get for the buck so to speak. Though, portion size is not my problem when it comes to veggies! Bread is another issue.

I was "unofficially" told that if I was hungry I could eat leafy green veggies or raw green veggies that have high water content. In a way, the new plans that give you 3 cups of lettuce and 2 cups of raw spinach help with volume and feeling full.

I actually do not even measure my green veggies. They are so low in calories, why worry about it?

I agree with Melissa's thoughts on this. We are in a re-training mode here and trying to get away from just popping food in our mouths without thinking. I have learned to tell myself - "I have had my food servings and that is enough. I don't need anymore......"
