The portion size and balance of meals

To lose weight, to be successful, your approach should be to eat:

- Single
- Flexible
- Pleasant
- Sustainable

Without these elements may try to lose weight, talk to a rollercoaster ride of debt, binge eating and negative self-image.

Food should always be a pleasant experience. When you come to think of the consequences of food (for example, carbohydrates and lipids enemy prisoner, I am not allowed to eat, eat, this ismake me fat) you'll never be able to enjoy your meal. Include the portions of meals and balance is key to sustained weight loss. Once you understand this, eating, losing weight is simple, flexible, comfortable and durable.

Balanced Meals

A balanced meal contains several food groups. It should satisfy your hunger / palate and gives your body the vitamins and nutrients. It usually contains a number of portions of carbohydrates, proteins and healthyFat.

To create a balanced meal, choose one from each category of food:

1) Carbohydrates
2) Protein
3) healthy fats


1) Carbohydrates food group:

Portion of pasta or rice cooking pot should be ¼ or size of your fist.

Brown basmati rice or whole wheat pasta is low GI options (with a slow release of energy to meet your needs and reduce the insulin response of the body - high levels of insulinSignal the body to store fat).

Portion of Bread: 2 slices of regular bread. If you need the bread in a cafe / restaurant, keep portion size in mind while you eat. Food can always be left in the pot.

Portion of potatoes or starchy vegetables: potatoes reminder 1 medium (volume of Faust). Sweet potatoes, beets / carrots / parsnips, squash / pumpkin, corn and peas in this category. The options tend to be better because they have a low glycemic index carbohydrate level.

Note: Hot Chips (potato chips in particular) are not a substitute for potatoes. Hot Chips If you decide to do a small handful, eat slowly and enjoy.

pulse Serving Size: half a degree or a little 'bigger your fist. (For example, beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc.):

Note: The food group has a combination of carbohydrates and proteins. If you are a vegetarian, can also be a protein.

Serving of fruit: medium-sized pieces 1-2> The fruit (eg apples, pears, peaches, etc.)

Note: When trying to lose weight, skin to choose the piece of edible fruit, have it. The skin of the fruit and adding vitamins and fiber, which keeps you dry more than satisfied with fruit leather, fruit juice or fruit. This means you are less likely to overeat or to get more food. Instead of eating as part of a meal, I recommend eating 1-2 pieces of fruit as a snack in the afternoon, as heusually a gap of six hours between lunch and dinner. Knowing this snack, you are less likely to overeat or eat unhealthy snacks at night.

non-starchy vegetables and salad: Even if it falls into the category of carbohydrates, such as decisions (spinach, broccoli / cauliflower, peppers, mushrooms, onions, herbs / garlic, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cucumbers, lettuce, celery, radishes, etc.) rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber and contain a small amount of carbohydrates. lunch and ½The blocks must always be vegetables or salad, with a preference towards the green leafy variety. Another option is a small bowl and medium enterprises from home, you can add vegetables stewed vegetable or chicken broth and herbs / garlic / spices to taste. From a health perspective, it is important to give your body the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants you need. Taking a point of view of weight loss of the fiber and water content in vegetables sharpness so you can eat their fill, a smallerSome of your main meal. I recommend you eat salad before vegetables /.

2) Group of dietary protein:

Portion of lean meat: the volume of the palm of his hand or a card. fish (eg, chicken, steak fat around the eyes, kangaroo, lean ham, pork or a piece of meat, little or nothing visible. Can the healthy omega-3)

Portion of eggs): 1-2 eggs. (Avoid the drippings, either by boiling or poaching eggs). Proteins can also be used to reduceFat content. However, I still like a yolk.

A part of low fat diary:

- 250 ml (cup size) of skim milk

- Low-fat cheese: 1 50grams be pre-sliced or a small handful of grated cheese.

(More cheese filling is a portion of protein. Because of the fat, keep your game, eat slowly and savor the taste).

- 1 x 250g TUP yogurt, low sugar content. example. "Yoplait Form" or TUP that the diet he said.

Note: If youdear diary milk, half of these areas.

3) healthy fats (omega - 3) - commonly found in other foods we eat.

Portion of nuts and seeds: a small hand full.Walnuts have the highest percentage of omega-3.

Some fish: size of the palm of your hand. (Bake, broil or grill the fish). The fish are mostly part of the protein. However, it is also healthy omega-3. Thefisher with the highest omega-3 fatty fish like water arecold salmon, herring, mackerel, anchoviesand sardines.

Note: every day you can eat fish could be a danger to the mercury content. For this reason, if you entered does not eat omega-3 from other dietary sources, I recommend a supplement of fish oil.

Advocate Service: ¼ -1 / 2 a lawyer. Avocado is technically a fruit, but is consumed mainly for its creamy mayonnaise and good fats (butter much better option). It fits well on a sandwich or salad.

Bread with addedFlaxseed: If you choose the bread with seeds, you can also get healthy fats.

Portion of extra virgin olive oil or flaxseed (linseed) Oil: 1 tablespoon - it can be used for cooking or seasoning.

Assembling parts

If we imagine a balanced meal on a plate should have the following declaration: 1 / 2: vegetables / salad, quarter, lean meat, 04:01: grains (bread, pasta, rice). If you regularly buy food from a coffee shop to keep in mind that the size of their shareis 2-3 times more than necessary. If you feel good food in a dish, ask for a box to take away. You can share a meal with a partner / friend. If meals are still very much on the menu salad and vegetables, eating orders a salad and a small amount of main meal. Whole wheat buns with a protein and lots of salad is another good option.

If you are too well with the correct size and serving balanced meals, food choicesunlimited. This means that you can enjoy a variety of foods and not feel private or confused by strict rules of diet. This gives you the freedom to eat happy for the rest of your life, while the ideal weight. If you want to lose weight, take only what you eat / drink for a week after the scale and size back. Eating foods you love (in their pods) to create a positive relationship with food and weight loss is simple,Soft, comfortable and durable.

The first 1-2 weeks may be necessary to experiment. Eat slowly, savor the taste of food and listen to your hunger during the meal, you learn to stop eating when it was found (a little 'room left in the stomach). You can also try combinations of foods and adjust the size of your portions until balanced meal, your palate and leave you feeling satisfied (not found in its entirety.)
