I can not eat just the recommended diet and not want to gnaw my arm off. I am normal weight with too much belly fat. I have been 90% vegan for a long time and now 100%. I am waaay to hungry to eat the suggested meal. I typically eat a smoothie AND oatmeal for breakfast, handful of trail mix or apple for snack, veggies and rice for lunch, another snack in afternoon, and veggies, bean, grains for supper.
If your appetite is greater than a 'serving'and you are eating whole foods with plenty of starches and veggies and keeping your fats low, then let your appetite be your guide.
If you are trying to lose fat, that means minimize the fats (nuts may best be saved for when weight is not a problem as they are so calorie dense), maximize non-disrupted fibrous foods and pile your plate with 50% veggies the other half starchy veggies or whole grains.
Smoothies can be helpful when time is pressed yet also may not give you the satiety of a chewed meal, which is tied into our - well, satiety. This may help you as well.
