Eat Less and Gain Control Today
Getting a hold of our eating habits and portion control is essential in losing weight. I especially had to learn this in order to take back my health. I was so out of control with my eating. I was easily taking in 7,000-8,000 calories a day and heading down a road towards a multitude of health problems. Taking control and gaining your power back in your life will open the door to you improving your overall health and lifestyle. It did for me. And now it’s your turn to start developing a healthy relationship with how you look at food. Starting with understanding the appropriate size of foods we should be eating is super helpful.
1. Start fixing your food on a smaller plate to visually trick yourself into thinking less food looks like more.
2. Use your hand as a measuring tool for food portions. (Use the palm of your hand for the size and thickness of your meats, a cuffed palm for your carbs and vegetables)
3. Figure out your daily body budget: take in no more than 8-10 calories per pound of weight you are (not below 1200) and then divide that number by 30 to get your fat grams intake. (For example, a person weighing 200 pounds should take in no more then 1800-2000 calories and 60-66 fat grams daily and adjust those numbers while losing weight)
4. When eating out take half of it out.
5. Start today.
