Hi Lottiesue,
It really varies by person. Some people like to make their plates "heavy" to be sure they can make it to the next meal. Others like to keep it "light" to ensure they are hungry. Personally, I'm 56 years old, female and 5 feet 4 inches tall so need less than a thirty something 5 foot 8 inch lady. On the other hand, I run 4 days a week and walk the other 3 so I need a bit more than if were sedentary. It's really a trial and error method. I will say though that I need a lot less than I imagined when I started. I suggest you start by using your best guesstimate. If you're not hungry at your next meal, it's too much. If you are "starved" on hour or two in, it's too little. The process works pretty well if you're careful to avoid the perils of "don't be an idiot". By that I mean, if you choose the biggest plate in the house and load it with fried everything with a side of cheesy-pasta and a couple beers to wash it down. Well, you might need to adjust. Otherwise, make your choices, monitor how you feel afterwards and adjust accordingly.

Best of luck to you.

I don't have photos, but for a while I was weighing my plate. After tare-ing the plate I would shoot for 13-14 oz, 3 times per day. That worked well for me and you kind of get used to how much food that looks like. If you are eating heavy food, you may find that is too much, or if light food too little. It worked for me though... I might have to get back to that...

Does anyone know how to upload photos? I can't get those multiple-photo arrays on Facebook. Just a few on my laptop.
