In my previous post I said I would give slimming world another few weeks and if it still doesn't seem to work for me I would try the 12 week NHS plan. So, in preparation and out of interest I thought it'd be good to see how many calories I currently consume on slimming world.
So today I have made risotto. Working out the calories for the rice, the veg and the stock is all fine. But I don't eat the whole thing. It gets portioned out between me and my partner and then whatever is left I keep for lunch tomorrow.
Am I meant to weigh the whole thing before serving it and then work out what percentage of it I'm having so that I know how many of the total syns I've had? Because that feels insanely difficult. Or is there an easier way? Am I being stupid?
It's fine with things that are separate. Knowing how many calories are in a piece of chicken and mash is easy and there's none left over. But how do people work it out when you've only had part of something? Help please!
