Do you know what A Healthy Portion looks like‏

Trying to lose weight can be so hard but one of the main reasons for that is really simple we put to much the plate but there is something you can done about that.

Learning to correctly gauge your serving sizes will help you know how many calories and carbohydrates you're consuming each and every day and by using these simple guides it will also help you lose weight and shrink your stomach and also help you maintain a healthy eating habit but for this to work you have to keep your portions in check.

Create your plate.

1. Fill section 1 with non-starchy veggies, such as spinach, broccoli, and green beans.

2. Fill section 2 with protein packed foods, such as lean meat or fish.

3. Fill section 3 with starchy foods, such as brown rice, pasta or beans.

Tips! Avoid going more than 4 hours without eating this is very important. If you're famished, you're more likely to eat extra-large portions plus you want to stay feeling full and not hungry.

Size up your servings:

Half a baseball = a serving of brown rice

A golf ball = a serving of nuts

A computer mouse = a serving of low fat ice cream

A set of dice = a serving of cheese

A deck of cards = 3 ounces of meat

A pocker chip = 1 tablespoon oil

Ways to make every day easier is by eating right

Choose non starchy veggies, green leafy vegetables you can eat theses all day and not hurt you.

Eat up without raising your blood sugar, non-starchy vegetables broccoli, kale, spinach, asparagus, cabbage, carrots, peppers, green beans, contain few calories and grams of carbohydrates per serving.

Whip up a super soup

It's lentil soup! These legumes don't need soaking in advance, so toss them right into broth with veggies for a quick, hearty bowlful with big benefits. Just a half cup of lentils has 10 grams of carbs, 8 grams of fiber and 8 grams of lean protein plus, it helps lower your cholesterol and blood sugar.

Baking

Use one third or one half the sugars called for in a recipe; add a teaspoon or two of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla or almond extract to replace sweetness. Because sugar will put the pounds on you.

Portion Control

Cooking pasta? Search online for single portion pasta strainers, which make it easy to determine how much pasta to eat, and makes carb-counting simple. And you can also use a portion control plate this will also help out.
