I read people saying they took seconds before No S or that they slip by taking seconds. I'm curious what foods people tend to take seconds of? More meat? More starch? More of combo foods like lasagne or casseroles?

I'm going to hazard a guess and say it's not the green beans or salad...

I am fully capable of taking seconds on everything, and thus eating a full, second dinner. Shocked

Starches mostly, or fried chicken.

I used to have no prolemas with the seconds, my way of eating rather was:

- What he touched in the diet.

After a few days:

- Binge eating: eat something forbidden salty, for example, a sandwich of cheese and ham, follow with chips, more sandwich, an industrial sweet, chocolate, other two industrial sweets ... etc ...

And again:

- what he touched in the diet.

How sad not to know how to eat normally, right? But what luck to have found No S and finally be, eating structured.

I'm not sure what you meant by "what he touched in the diet."

You are not alone in not knowing how to eat "normally." Things have gotten abnormal for decades. And yes, we ARE lucky!

He wanted to say: "what the diet dictated". I am Spanish and I use the translator, so some things will not be well written Rolling Eyes Smile

And yes, totally agree with you! Very Happy

Since I had a bigger plate then, I wasn't always temped by seconds, except the crust around the casserole dish, and potato chips when served with a sandwich meal.

Thanks, Dalia negra! You mean you could take seconds of all S's, I assume.

I seldom ever actually took seconds either. I was more likely to pile 3 portions on my plate the first time. Starches & combo foods were my biggest downfall. Pizza is probably my worst demon.

I go back for seconds of starches....especially rice, mashed potatoes or potatoes au gratin. Casseroles are tempting, too! I rarely finish my meat or veggies unless its green beans or salad with a good dressing. I'm a carb junkie!

Yeah, not the veggies usually (unless there's something special about them--I remember being at a friend's house and her roasted asparagus was so delicious I had seconds! Or if there's a really good dip for raw veggies--things like that). Definitely breads, desserts, casseroles (I noticed the temptation for another piece of bread or another plate of spaghetti this week, for example).

Snacks tended to be my bigger temptation than seconds though. I might not get seconds at dinner but might want a snack an hour later.

Seconds are not (and never have been) a problem for me (lucky me!!) - But snacks and desserts -- particularly snacks??? That is another story. I'm one of those people who cannot go to the movie theater without getting popcorn- movie night is best saved for an S day. Very Happy

For me it was anything really-whatever is 'calling' me. I don't mean exactly a craving, but something just sounds good. When I do eat it, whatever it is tastes exceptionally good, while other things pale in comparison.

Oddly enough, most of the time is is actually vegetables. Anyone else at dinner is lucky to get any parsnips if I get to them first - and I may possibly have picked through and eaten any leftover parsnips long after dinner was over. I can eat my way through enough perfectly steamed green beans for three people, and last week my entire lunch was roasted broccoli.

Probably the main non-vegetable things were lasagne and casseroles - especially with green chilies. Anything with green chilies, come to think of it.

Lately I'm noticing that what I think about taking seconds of is my own cooking. Like if I serve a delicious bowl of soup to my kid, but she only eats one bite, my first instinct is to eat the rest myself. I bought a bunch of silicone lids that are various sizes and fit many bowls and plates, and I am saving those portions for later.
