Portion control - what works and what doesn't?
The talk of weight control is portion sizes and transparency on the product labels. Kudos to Coca Cola for offering smaller sized cans with the calories in that portion in a clear to read label. The initiative by Coca Cola to deliver useful information to the consumer in a package that helps weight control is what the market place should be delivering. Kudos I believe is owed to Coca Cola. What are your thoughts?
That is definitely a good idea by Coca Cola. In this way, you don't have to entirely cut off your favorite drinks but also keep in check your weight!
A lot of products on the market offer pre-portioned snacks, for example all the 100 calorie packs. Many of those products are not lower sugar or diet snacks, they are simply preportioned to help people. It certainly makes grabbing a snack easier if you don't have to count out the number of chips, crackers or nuts before you can eat them to ensure you aren't eating too many. While I applaud all of these brands for doing this, it still comes down to the consumer, because I have seen many people simply eat multiple packages of these pre-portioned snacks and then it is not doing any good.
I met an old lady, living in a bedroom on the side of a house. She was skinny. She said to me, I lost over 200 lbs by only eating for a meal what could fit in the palm of my hand. True Story!.
I think it is a great idea. Keeping a healthy weight, I believe is all about portion control. I am very thin. I actually get teased at work because I am always eating and stay so thin. But actually by controlling how much we consume at one time, and what we are consuming we can easily maintain a healthy weight. Yes I eat 10 times a day, but I do not eat a Big Mac ten times a day, I have small meals. It is also very important not to deprive yourself of treats that you like. The longer you deprive yourself, the worse it will be when you finally break down and eat what you want. You know that you will eventually eat it. It is almost inevitable. If I want a soda I will have one. If I want a couple of cookies I will eat them. I do not feel as though I am craving anything because I allow myself to have it. If I wanted a cookie and tried not to eat one for a week, I would eventually go to the store, buy a box of oreos and eat 10.
Less calorie or not, soda is junk food. Some even contain harmful chemicals that cross the blood-brain barrier and is harmful to your health... such as aspartame. I would just stay away from the junk. If one is subconscious about their health or weight, then healthier choices need to be made through eating natural foods full of nutrients (i.e., vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients).
