I watched a BBC show on YouTube - My Big Fat Diet. The host and 6 other women were trying to lose a dress size in 2 weeks, eating 1200 cals a day. They had created a “grocery store” in which everything was packaged in 100-calorie packs. The women “shopped” for each day’s food. It was really interesting to see the food (and drink) laid out like that. They let the public in to look - what people seemed most surprised at was the (small) amount of pasta that was in a 100-calorie bag. I think it would be cool to shop like that - go in and choose 3 packs for breakfast, 3 for lunch, 4 for dinner, and 2 snacks.
I like this idea too. It seems fun. This also seems liek a good breakdown for 1200 calories, which add up quickly - for me anyway!!

I do think some people have denser bones or just are built differently.

Really nice breakfast, Jenn!!!
