Eat Less Without Feeling Hungry? Sign me up!
The fact is, if we only ate when we were hungry, and then only until we were full, most of us would be slimmer.
Nowadays we are so over-stimulated by the overwhelming number of external cues to eat, limiting our portions and only eating when we need to is almost impossible!
A recent study by the British Medical Journal has revealed that most people rely on their sight to control portion sizes which can result in them consuming an extra 300 calories a day.*
Try following these simple portion hacks for the next week and see the difference:
Just think, if you ate 115 calories less a day (that could be a handful less nuts or a smaller serving of ice cream) in a month you would have lost a pound and in 10 months 10 pounds. That’s 10 mindless pounds gone with hardly any effort – easy!!!
Now imagine the possibilities if you apply those strategies whilst cutting out the carbs and crap, upping the veggies and protein then nailing the workouts – Boom!!!!!!!
Portion sizes a rough guide
Meats and proteins – pack of playing cards
Fruit – size of a tennis ball
Veggies – a handful (but don’t let that stop you – pile them high!)
Dairy – tea cup of milk
Pasta – a mug full (but give it a miss if you want to reduce your waistline)
Pizza – 1/3 of a 9” plate (again, just as the occasional treat if you want to shrink your booty)
Nuts – a small handful – 5 or 6 maximum
It’s so easy to keep mindlessly eating when food is in front of us. These small changes can help create the calorie deficit you need to lose weight…
