Portion Control with George Foreman

In the realm of healthy eating, portion control is possibly the most important point outside of choosing the right foods to eat. If you're making lifestyle changes to be healthier, portion control plays a vital role in helping you develop a positive relationship with food. Sometimes, it's not about what you eat, it's about how much, and all good things are best enjoyed in moderation. The point of portion control is to make sure you're eating just enough to satisfy without overstuffing yourself and packing in the extra calories. Plus, the really nice thing about being controlled in your portions is that you can be more generous with what you eat. Instead of limiting yourself to a diet of tofu and rice cakes alone and eventually cheating on something that's impossible keep up, you can eat more of what you want in a controlled way. Doing this will allow you to be healthier overall, by taking small, practical steps in the right direction.

If you’re making lifestyle changes to be healthier, portion control plays a vital role. Here are some tips from George Foreman, so you can eat what you want but in a healthier way.

Follow these simple tips to help control food portions;

Fill half your plate with veggies Vegetables contain lots of water and fibre, but are low in calories. By replacing half the protein or carbohydrate with vegetables, you can eat the same volume of food while cutting calories. Add more vegetables to your favourite recipes to make them lower in calories and more nutrient-dense. Increase protein intake Protein rich meals increase feelings of fullness. Opt for lean sources of protein such as poultry, eggs, fish, beans and tofu. Starters It might seem counterintuitive to eat more courses in order to eat less food, but starting your meal with a soup or salad can help you do just that. They have a high water content, are full of fiber-rich veggies and are generally low in calories. Use smaller plates and utensils Using smaller plates can help keep portion sizes smaller and tricks your brain into thinking you’re eating more. Most people feel equally full eating from a smaller plate. Drink Water Drinking a glass of water up to 30 minutes before a meal will naturally aid portion control and make you feel less hungry. Being well hydrated also helps you distinguish between hunger and thirst.
