Portion Control is a lifestyle and a good habit

Portion Control is a way of measuring your food intake to ensure you are eating the correct portion to lose weight.

Research has shown that people consistently eat more food when offered larger portions. So portion control is important when you’re trying to lose weight and keep it off. A portion is the amount of food you put on your plate, while a serving is an exact amount of food.

Portion Control :

  • Helps you lose weight
  • Keeps weight off
  • Assists in controlling what foods you’re eating

NOTE:  the importance of balance and getting food portions right is one of the main reasons people do not lose weight.
