Portion Sizes

There's bound to be lots of questions about portion sizes so I figured I'd just start a topic.

One thing I just noticed is that a serving of grains is smaller in Phase 3 than it is in Phase 1 so that's something to pay attention to.

I'm in the 60 pounds and over group but I cannot double the portion sizes, it's just too much. So, I'm going with what some others have said Haley suggestion and just add a 1/2 serving.

    One more question about serving sizes. For meat & fish, is the ounces before cooking or the weight after cooking? I'm assuming it's before but this always confuses me :)

    I don't think it matters. This diet is a lot less picky than HCG :)

    P3 grain is half the regular portion. So, if you get 1 cup oatmeal in P1, it would be 1/2 c. in P3 (my P1 oatmeal portion is 1.5 cups, so my P3 portion is 3/4 c.).

    Thanks! I can't remember how to determine pt. 1 portion now either... but I did have less for pt 3 today.

    So this is my first day and for breakfast it has me down for 1 1/2 cups mango and 1 1/2 cups oatmeal (I made steel oats). Seriously? I can't eat it all. Is that right?
