Portion Control: How To Know What Works For Your Body

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Thu, Mar 23, 2017 @ 09:33 AM


Eating habits are ingrained in you and switching them up can be a bit of a challenge, but portion control can be a good place to start when you are looking to cut back on food and your weight. There are many different ways to help you get started with knowing what works for your body with portions. Portion control can be as simple as not skipping meals, understanding food labels, and weighing out your food. Let’s take a look!

Portion Control = No Meal Skipping

When you are practicing portion control in your diet you may find that you are eating less than what you will normally consume. Your body will need every meal it can get to maintain fueled for your daily activities. Skipping a meal can decrease your chances of sticking to your portion control routine and can lead to overeating. With this in mind, you should always plan to eat at least three meals a day, with smaller healthy snack in between to keep up your energy and provide your body with the nutrients it needs.

Understand The Label

When you look at the back of a 20 oz soda bottle, you will notice that it is labeled as having 2.5 servings in it; this means that it has over twice as much as a person should drink during a meal setting according to a healthy diet. With this in mind, if you are going to have a 20 oz soda with your next meal, make sure you drink a little less than half of it. This is an excellent way to control your portions.

Weigh Your Portions

When was the last time you weighed your food? Weighing your food will help ensure you are eating proper portion sizes according to your weight and composition. Take for example you are 178 pounds and you want to lose 20 pounds in eight weeks; this means you'll need to lose 2.5 pounds a week. Cutting back on your calorie intake is an excellent way to achieve this goal, but you can start measuring your food to ensure you are not overeating.

Looking to supplement your weight loss regimen by practicing portion control? If so, you should also consider adding in 7-Keto® to your daily diet. After all, when you reduce your calorie intake, your body will start to have a tighter grip on the calories you actually consume, making weight loss feel like a battle you can't seem to win. With 7-Keto®, though, you get the best of both worlds. You can decrease your calorie intake and shed off those unwanted pounds because the supplement boosts your metabolism.
