I am simply addicted to sushi, and could have it every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!

Does anyone know much sushi a person is allowed to have in any one sitting?

What do you guys think, or have you found any research, because I haven't?

Thanking you in advance!!!

Hi. Well it depends on what type. A California Roll (8 peices) has about 360 calories. Or more depending on the size.

Sushi is definitely not low calorie and doesn't fill me up too much.
I have been making my own at home -- 3/4 cup cooked sushi rice is a wopping 290 calories (and I'm sure that at the restaurants they use more like a cup of rice). I skimp on the rice for my rolls just to save calories.
So, you can bet that the rice alone is going to be at least 300 calories. The seaweed is 10 calories for a whole sheet. The fish is minimal (probably an ounce is used). Then whatever else is in your roll. The ones with sauces or fried fish will obviously be more.

Try to eat soup and salad and then have a roll. I like making at home so that I have complete control over the ingredients and quantity. I usually have twice a week and have been able to continue w/ weight loss. But I always make sure to pair with veggies and salad so I'm not starving. And I only have one roll per meal (which is so hard - when I go out for sushi it is harder to stick to one roll)

If you are on a low carb diet then you have to watch the rice. Try to have a seaweed salad, bowl of soup, one roll stuffed with veggies and fish and a sashimi plate. If we're at an all you can eat i sometimes order a shrimp roll but only eat the shrimp and leave the rice.

Just make sure to add everything into your food diary and make sure you don' go over your RDI . I sometimes put it in before I go out to eat so I know exactly what to order.
If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!

Weight settings
Your goal weight is set at 17kg which is a bit optimistic! On the website, go to 'My Weight History' and change your goal weight to 68. Or, on the app, go to weight and change the goal.
