Tip of the week
Whether you lose weight fast or slowly, whether it's difficult
or easy, the rules are the same for all of us. Healthy diet plans
should be combined with an active lifestyle so that when weight
falls off, it stays off.
Use a Smaller Plate – Portion Control is Key
- It's human nature to fill up our plate, so to avoid over-eating
we suggest using a plate that's about 2/3 the size of a normal
dinner plate. Many people fear they will feel hungry if they reduce
their portion size. Eating a little less at each meal can make big
differences over time.
- There is a time delay of about 15 minutes from when you eat to
when your brain registers you have eaten sufficiently. So after
eating wait 15 minutes to see how you feel.
- If you're still hungry, increase the amount of vegetables you
are eating at each meal, keeping the protein portion the same.
