Ah, the Amish have it right: large portions of unending noodles, bread, veggies, meats, etc
No wonder I struggle with weight. Rachel had a frozen meal for her lunch today, a relatively nutritious "Amy's Meal." The Thai curry smelled delicious but then I looked at it and realized I'd eat that whole thing in a few bites and still hungry for me. So I opted for a more filling sandwich for lunch so I could pile on as much as much cheese and pickles as I wanted to to add bulk to it. Plus I had some popcorn snack mix on the side.
My question? Does anyone really feel full after eating one of these frozen meals or do I just have a massive appetite? I could probably eat two of these frozen meals and then I might feel full. Yet some people do seem to get full on less. My Dad, who has never struggled with weight, will eat half his meal, declare himself full, and save the rest for later. Not me, I'm usually angling for seconds.
When I was losing weight earlier this year, it was by filling myself up with citrus, chick peas, melon, etc, things that were relatively healthy. But these frozen meals just don't do it for me, and Amy's Meals are some of the more generously portioned. I think I'd grow emaciated very fast trying to eat Lean Cuisines.....

The frozen meals do tend to be on the small side. I try to avoid those, though, because of the high sodium content. If I do have one, I usually add a salad to help fill me up.
You are preaching to the choir my friend! I can't remember the last time I DIDN'T want seconds at a meal!!! No motherly advice from this old Meemaw...I guess I should really try the ELF diet...
Yes, I need to try that diet too!
