Question: And that you for being so patient with me!.

If I want to split my LG does that mean that if I pick a "lean" protein for lunch that I have to pick another "lean" for dinner? In other words, do I always have to mix/match from the same category? I'm thinking veggie sausage for bfast but chicken for dinner. How would that work?.

That would be "thank." I seem to be losing brain cells along with the weight. Perhaps that's why I have been up since 4am....

You can have x amt of lean in a day.... ie 5 oz 6 oz or 7 oz depending on what it is...

If it's beef it's 5 oz, if you wanted to have half of your lean at lunch you can have 2.5 oz for lunch, and then decide to have salmon for dinner.... and you would then look at the normal quantity of salmon for your lean for the day and I think it's 8oz so then if you had half your lean for lunch you could have half your lean for dinner.... half of the 8 oz salmon is 4 oz....

Its easier when you do it with the same lean protein but not impossible..

You can use different leans as long as they are from the same category, lean, leaner leanest. this is because of the healthy fat requirement (or not). It's easier to use the same lean but you don't have to if you stay in the same category. Also, if you do this do not split your healthy fat. You must take that all in the same meal, per NS. This is due to gall bladder function and even for those without one, how our body absorbs certain fat soluble vitamins..

5 oz. of salmon is the lean portion. So, half of that would be 2.5 oz. I sometimes split out of 2 categories. Like this morning I am going to have some lowfat cheese with my eggs and at dinner, I will have chicken. You just have to do the math which can get kind of complicated.

I'll see if I can find it and post it here for you..

Here is the address for soopermommy's blog. I printed this chart and it really helps when figuring out how to divide your lean and green. Sorry I can't post the link rather than the address. I can't figure out how to do that..
