One of the biggest struggles I hear from my clients is portion control. We like food, it is comforting, we socialize over food and we eat when we are bored. It is important to nourish our body with healthy food choices, but too much of a “good thing” is harmful to our waist-line. Below is a fool-proof guide with visual aids to help us be mindful of what we are putting on our plates.

Study this photo and become familiar with the comparisons well enough, that next time you fill your plate, you will be serving up the right amount of food for meeting your weight loss goals. This may seem like a silly idea, but keeping the food-comparison items in your kitchen may be a great start to the learning process.
Until next time, take care!
