    Hmm, I didn't even think that 2 eggs wouldn't be enough--I've never really been a breakfast person. So having anything at all every day for breakfast is definitely another adjustment for W30. I really only have been eating it since I know I should  

    And I actually don't have a snack every day--maybe 1 or 2 times a week. Usually only on the days when I've gone for a run or workout,  and I know it might be many more hours til dinner.  Sometimes due to schedules, I won't have dinner until 7/7:30.  I had included it just since it's something I do have once in a while--definitely not daily though. 
    So you think that's too much nuts? I've actually decreased the amount of nuts I usually eat since starting W30. Are they constipating? I didn't realize there was a recommendation on the limit of them--good to know!! Mine are usually a mix of almonds, pistachios and cashews (if that matters)...
    4 oz of chicken that I have at lunch is probably close to the size of my palm, slightly smaller.  Also, I  just checked the usual tupperware container I put my salad in and it's 24oz (not 8-10oz)...oops!  Some days I take leftovers from the night before's dinner...for example, today I will have a leftover 1/2 stuffed green pepper--stuffed with 1/3 cup of taco meat, 1/4 cup riced cauliflower, mixed with spinach and red peppers, topped with salsa. 
    At dinner time, I have maybe 6oz (probably more accurately the size of my palm) of either chicken or pork. And I eat a LOT of veggies at dinner--it covers about 3/4 of my dinner plate. And it actually varies a lot...we have salad almost every night, but I love to cook so I am usually doing some different kind of meal for dinners. The types of veggies I cook are: broccoli, spinach, peppers, onions, green beans, snowpeas, carrots, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, spaghetti squash. 
    So you think adding in more veggies--maybe at lunch time--might help? I also drink soda water often at night time....
