3 meals a day

Hey!

Im kirsty, 31 ; from glasgow! Started slimming world from home on wednesday (valentines day, no idea why!) Feel like so far i can stick to plan pretty easily but im struggling a bit to do brekky, lunch & dinner every day. Ive never been a huge eater, i just need to choose what i eat more wisely rather than not eat til 12pm & too many takeaways for dinner! I'm 5ft & 9,4 so only looking to lose about a stone, will skipping meals go against me if im just not hungry? Sw portion sizes from recipes are also huge & can leave me feeling bloated

Hello! Welcome!
Yes the portions are huge. They’re designed to keep people feeling full and satisfied. However, feel free to reduce how much you actually eat if you’re eating too much. I do. There’s tons of recipes that say it’s for 4 portions but I easily break it down to 6 or more.
Regarding the 3 meals a day, if you don’t usually have breakfast, don’t force it. I know lots of people who don’t have breakfast, myself included. I tend to snack on fruit or hifi bars mid morning and eat my lunch around 1pm.
Skipping meals is different to not eating breakfast. Skipping meals would mean not eating a meal you normally would eat. If that makes sense? Stick to eating lunch and dinner, make the right choices and you’ll lose what you want to
Just make sure there’s 1/3 of a plate of speed food with each meal

Hi Kirsty

Welcome to Social Slimmers

Changing your food habits can be the biggest battle. I was the same ... I skipped breakfast and ate conveniently. I found I ate more conveniently which wasn't the best choice because I was hungry. I now eat breakfast and more times than not have the patience to have other meals. Sometimes it's just a simple banana and protein shake (shake because I workout). Over night oats is a good one to have to hand .. however if I'm not hungry I don't eat and have those days too, skipping meals shouldn't do you any harm as long as you are on plan for the rest of the day.

Portion size is optional. One of my rules is eat until 80% full (a tip from my coach) and it works. I hate bloat feeling too. Portion sizes are average.

Thank you! Ive followed a 7 day meal plan & not had lunch 2 of the days. If i have 3 meals i tend not to snack but if i miss breakfast or lunch i just snack. Seems to be working though, as of today i've lost 3lbs, yay! Had to weigh a day early as use work scales & only work mon tues! Going to use up some spare syns today & sort a new meal plab for the next week & hope i get the same results! Chuffed!

Welcome to the forums. Look into garcinia. It helps suppress appetite.
