Default When you split your lean and green...

How do you do it? Do you eat your second lean and green instead of a MF meal? The portion size of lean is too much for me...I only eat what I can, which tends to be 1/2-3/4 of the recommended amount, and I just forgo the other part...but am I eating enough? I'm not hungry, but yesterday I only got 800 calories, and that just doesn't seem like enough...

Basically I'm just not sure when to finish the rest of my L&G if I didn't finish it at mealtime.

You have to eat a full lean & green. 800 calories can drop you into severe Ketosis, which can seriously mess with your metabolism.

I knew after day 1 that I wouldn't be able to eat my L&G in one sitting. So I plan for, and pre-prepare for 2 L&Gs. Typically my lunch is a taco salad (99% lean ground turkey) with 1/2 of my lean and 2 servings of veggies (1 cup lettuce + 1/2 cup mixed veggies). i use salsa instead of salad dressing (no fat). For dinner I eat the other 1/2 of my lean (I seem to crave eggs this time of day) and 1 veggie serving. Tonight I had grilled chicken breast and asparagus (yum!) .

Thanks, I think I will start splitting...I hate stuffing myself when I'm supposed to be on a diet lol. Yesterday, though, I actually TRIED to eat more calories, and failed. I had my 5 medifasts, and didn't eat my L&G till dinner, and I could only eat 3 oz of steak so I had an egg and veggies before I went to bed as a 7th meal...and I still only got 800 calories. So I called my coach and she said 800 calories was fine, you don't want to go too much under that but we are getting all of our nutrients as long as we finish that L&G we can take less calories. I'm just going to have to start making sure to prepare my L&G for lunch so I have time to finish it!
