I am new to the community and just starting the food related part of my weight loss journey. I've slowly been introducing new habits like weighing my food and stopping to buy unhealthy snacks as well as drinking more water. I've also already got a fairly consistent exercise plan going as I completed C25K last summer and have since gone on to do a triathlon. However I have only lost 1.5st in a year and still have 2st to lose if I want to enter my healthy weight range. So here I am, concentrating on food!
I never seem to get enough veg in my diet and so I have a quick question about portions. If I buy a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, can I only get one portion of veg from it, or because it is mixed can an additional 80g be classed as two portions?
Also, I know juice is only one portion no matter what, and the same for beans/pulses etc but are there some vegetables that can't be considered as separate portions? Broccoli and cauliflower for instance?
Hopefully this will be the year I get the weight off, and be a healthy weight for the first time in my life!
