I just now started getting really serious about sticking to phase 1. I've been eating A LOT of ricotta cheese though....because It doesn't put a limit on ricotta on the "phase list" and I like it. I haven't been stuffing myself or anythying, but I am eating a lot of this cheese! I was wondering if this is going to be a problem for my weight loss?
Darn! Well, ummm....I had a carton that had 15 servings, and demolished it over the course of 2 days. I was eating a lot because its so convenient, and yummy. I guess I better limit it. Is the use of olive oil unrestricted, or should I be measuring it for my salads?
Well, if you intend to lose weight, you do have to check out serving sizes. A half cup of ricotta which is a serving is 170 calories and 10 grams of fat. The container serving size may be smaller but still.......
Calories do count so I would measure olive oil on salads - a Tablespoon has 119 calories and 14 grams of fat. You might consider signing up for www.fitday.com (free) and checking out foods there.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
