Ok i am not a nutritionist, but just by going to weight watchers and a few nutrition classes in college, very very few sugars. that is why on the flex plan of weight watchers, diet sodas are 0 points, cuz they have no sugar, no cals... and of course just because it is low fat, does not mean you can have fifty portions. one serving or you are just wasting your time eating low fat. if it came to two low fat salads with dressing, or one with the correct serving of full of fat dressing, the two would probably be close to equal. this is what we talked about in our meeting tonight... its all about portioning! we discussed how to satisfy your chocolate cravings, and most people said the low fat stuff, but they tend to eat so much because it does not satisfy that hunger like a real piece of chocolate, whereas I would just loose some points for the day/week and have one portion of a good chocolate! it may mean that i can't have a larger filling dinner, but at least i can eat chocolate! as for the scale not moving...are you gaining? by exercising and continuing to embellish in too many goodies you will only maintain your weight, not loose. however, if you start to portion and continue to exercise i am sure you will lose! Also, someone else could help us both out...my 1st week i lost four pounds, but my 2nd week i only lost 1.4. (i know they say it will slow, but DANG!!!) it has been a stressful week so I have had "junk" meals,but still within my points range. does it actually hurt you more if you do eat fatty foods, even tho still in points? I was really upset with myself for losing so little, but you know at least i didn't gain and that is what you have to tell yourself!(then get on here for more support!)
I see no reason why you can't have extra salad (as long as you aren't piling things on top of it that have calories). I'd think it's better to fill up on the salad than to eat a bunch of other stuff. Like my leader use to say... "we didn't get fat from eating too many fruits and veggies". :) Granted, if you're eating more than 1 portion of fat free stuff you should add up the calories for it because even though a serving may be low, the calories do add up.
As far as your boss making breakfast... You can eat it. Just if you know you'll be having breakfast at work, skip your breakfast at home (take a back up plan with you just in case you get to work and there's no breakfast). Eggs are usually about 75 calories each with 5 grams of fat (you might want to add a little if it was cooked in butter) and bacon is around 40 calories with 3 grams of fat per strip. The wheat toast is usually 70 calories with 1 gram of fat. If there's a bag that the bread came in, check it out. Of course, whatever you put on the toast has to be counted too. I'm just saying, there's no reason why you have to sit and watch everyone else eat. You can eat it too, you just have to work it out to include it in your calories and fat for the day. :)
