I have recently invested in a Crockpot. It was probably the best investment I've ever made.
HOWEVER - I find that because he meat is often shredded, I can pack in a HELL of a lot of food this way. It is extremely hard to judge if I am overeating on the protein front, especially as I am trying to lean out. If I over indulge in the Crockpot's shredded delights, I will indeed stay fuller for much longer, however it seems to be a bit of a battle with myself to find a self control cut off point when enough is enough!
I wondered if anyone else had experienced the same problem and does anyone think that there is such a thing as TOO many Crockpot meals - should they be treated as candy cigarettes too?
