Portion Size

🔹 Eyeballing serving sizes can work if you’re not really trying to lose or gain weight
🔹 If you DO want to drop some weight, measuring and actually knowing how much food is going in is pretty important. Especially at first so that you can learn more about portion sizes. Once you’re where you want to be you can relax on the precision. Plus you’ll know more about what to look for and what mistakes to avoid.

🔹 I’m not saying that you need to measure each banana you eat. Just be aware that different amounts of something will have a different calorie content, that’s all.

🔹 Things like peanut butter, oils and nuts are very calorie dense and can add up quickly so they are the things you want to be careful with. Small amounts add up and if you’re eating 500-1000 cals more than you thought in a week you’ll be confused why the progress isn’t there. Let me know if you have any questions, I can help.
