I’ve really been thinking a lot about portion control lately. I guess what got me to thinking of this is that every single time I go to eat at a restaurant, I am SO Full before I even take more than 8 bites of food. The sandwiches have grown to enormous size and the portion sizes are unreal.
Another thing that got me thinking about portion control is that my grocery bill would be a lot less if I watch my portion sizes as well.
I found this nifty little chart on the Internet this past week at a website called Skinny Mom Fitness. It’s really neat and it helps to you visualize your portions better.
As you can see from this photo, our meat or protein should only take up a fourth of the plate! My portion sizes have been backward. I have been eating protein the size of the vegetable portion and vegetables the size of the protein portion.
No wonder my weight loss has gone stagnant.
I more determined than ever to lose my weight and get healthy again. Lately I have been feeling sluggish and horrible and I know it is because of what I am putting in my body. It is definitely time for a change.
Portion control is everything!
