Tips To Control Your Food Intake In Weight Loss

Contrary to popular belief, just because you want to lose weight doesn’t mean that you have to starve. Many people tend to starve or follow crash diets but nothing beats eating the right way and losing weight. I believe that if you eat the right foods, you will not only lose weight but also become healthy.

Like many people, I too have been following various eating plan that resulted in my weight going up and down. And then my friend told me that I’ve been doing all wrong. I should just eat what I’m used to eat and not simply something that I’ve never come across just because a certain weight loss program told me to do so.

All you need to do is to adopt some restrains when you are eating. Or be smarter when you are at the dining table. Here are some of the tips to smarter meals…

Decrease your portions by half

Good news: You can lose weight and still enjoy your favorite foods. You can do that by decreasing your portion sizes by half. Take your typical dinner serving and decrease it by half. If you feel hungry afterwards, try supplementing your meal with fresh fruit or vegetables on the side. Drink a lot of water. Eat slowly. After you eat, wait a few minutes to allow yourself to feel full. You will probably notice you don’t feel the urge to eat as much.

Don’t eat a three-course meal at restaurants
When dining out, watch how much you are eating. Most restaurants serve huge portions for the main course. Eating an appetizer, main course, and desert is too much food. Many restaurants offer lunch size portions of their dishes, which are smaller than their full-size dinner entrees.

Don’t biggie-size anything
Fast food portions are normally too large. Upsizing meals give you extra food you don’t need. If you decide to eat fast food (which you shouldn’t actually), order the regular size or better still the kiddies size.

Start Reading Labels
Look carefully at the serving size for your food. Find out how many servings you are actually consuming. You will soon know how to measure a serving size simply by looking at the food.

No Buffets!!!
It is nearly impossible to practice portion control in an “all-you-can-eat” situation. Many individuals mistakenly eat as much as possible in a buffet. This is not good for someone on a diet.
