The Power of Portion Sizes

Henry S Lodge, MD posted:
We all know that we feel better if we are at a healthy weight. We move better, have better energy, and better self-esteem. And when it comes to getting to and maintaining a good weight, calorie control is key.

Portion size is the easiest place to make a win here. One very powerful suggestion is simply to get appetizer-size plates and use those for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you have a small enough plate, you can load it full, and you will still be about right on calories.

Studies have shown over and over again that if you have a big plate, you will tend to put more food on it, and it is awfully tough to walk away from an unfinished meal!

Countries that eat the least amounts of processed foods and sodas and eat the most amounts of whole, natural foods (fruits, vegetables and whole grains) and fish have very little incidence of Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease.

Your best advice in your best selling book, "Younger Next Year" : "Stop eating crap!"

"Portion Control" is a practice that applies only to countries who say they eat "healthy" but are really full of "crap".

I totally agree with the portion size statment. I think this is really the key to weight loss. There should be a book with only portion size pictures so we are aware of the true amount we should be having.
