Size does count when it comes to weight loss!

The portion size of meals that you consume plays an integral role in the weight that you may gain. Do you find yourself reaching for more and more food on a regular basis?

If you do, then stop and take charge before you find yourself hitting higher digits the next time you stand on the bathroom scales. The amount of food that you help yourself to can be controlled. Start by taking a smaller portion of food, chew every mouthful slowly and savour the taste of each and every bite. You will be giving your brain sufficient time to register when you are full, and may thus not need to rush into a second helping.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietician if you require assistance in putting a meal plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
