I don't eat as many snacks as I used to. However, I rarely eat over the calorie limit. I barely notice that the number of calories I consume have gone down. I feel so good about this. I haven't lost a ton of weight, but I am just I lost weight. I do eat a lot of pasta. I need to eat pasta in moderation. A cup of macaroni and cheese is a full serving. It is actually quite a bit of food. However the chicken was baked and I had cut green beans. So what I mean is is that at least the food was somewhat healthy.
