A re-post from our previous nutritional blog.

Portion Control.  It sounds like a department in the government.  Well, it actually should be of national concern because the portions are truly out of control.  Eating portions of food that are way more than you need will derail your weight-loss dreams or bodyweight maintenance goals.  Sometimes it is perfectly legitimate to eat a huge plate of food, but I venture to say most of the times we are eating with our eyes and heart and not our stomach.  I will say that eating paleo has pretty much solved this for me.  Veggies fill me up quickly, plus they get boring to chew and meat also fills me up quickly.  I rarely ever feel that bloated, overly stuffed feeling anymore. If you aren’t strict paleo or are having trouble making your meals a more reasonable size for yourself, here are some ideas: (some may seem silly, but they work) Use a smaller plate. Make sure 2/3 of your plate is veggies. Decide how much you should eat before you fill your plate, do not deviate. Drink an entire class of water before you fill up your plate. If at a restaurant and you order a piece of meat that is say 8oz and you know you need 4-5oz, cut in half.  See if you really want it after you finish your veggies and the first half. Make sure you don’t wait too long to eat.  This is always disastrous. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Ever wonder why certain foods are so irresistible?  Check out this article.
