Trying to get weight control. Cut your portion size down. You will hear this all the time.
What is a portion size? It just makes everything harder to understand.
Simple rule – Make a fist with your own hand. That is the maximum amount of food that you should take in at a single meal.
One fist sized ‘portion’ of good quality food which is low in sugar and carbohydrate, preferably higher in fat, will keep you going for hours.
The dinner plate of the 1950’s was the size of an entrée plate today. We tend to fill up our plates at meal time otherwise it feels that we are missing out.
So make your plate smaller, cut down the food volume to a fist size and you will not be missing out.
That’s what I make of ‘Portion Size’.
