15 Surprising Everyday Foods That Are Loaded With Sugar

5 Tricks To Eating Healthy Using Portion Control

Eating smaller size re-sets the appetite and satiety to a lesser intake if the diet plan is followed over a period. Portion control helps reduce the actual quantity of food consumed

1. Eat Smaller Portions

Carbohydrates would measure up to one-quarter of the plate, protein another quarter of the plate, fats would be the tip of a finger and half of the plate should be filled with vegetables.

2. Maintain Ratio Of Carbohydrates, Proteins And Fats

Opting for a smaller dinnerware makes a smaller portion size look filling. If a bigger dinner plate is used, the quantity of food accommodated in the plate exceeds the portion, people tend to eat more with larger plates

3. Choose Specific Dinnerware/Serve

If one eats directly from the package portion control is lost. One easily exceeds the quantity of food consumed. Portioning food from the package in a serving bowl ensures quantity control.

4. Avoid Direct Consumption From Packages

– A way to check the portion size without any measuring tools is by using your hand. A palm-sized serving for proteins, a fist or two fist-sized serving for vegetables, a cupped hand portion of carbohydrates, a thumb-sized serving of fat
