A slight digression but the eatwell plate, as explained to me by my DN, didnt tell me to eat carbs at the same rate as I had before. The portion sizes were explained, and although the proportion of carbs was, in my opinion, too high, the amount was reduced because I would be eating less food. Smaller portions and fewer calories. Maybe because I need to lose weight, so others dont get the calories restriction part of the talk? And this was nearly 6 years ago so maybe the eatwell info has changed. My obvious carbs, had I listened to her and not this forum, would have gone down from about 350g a day to about 160g a day.
