Why Portion Control for Weight Loss is Crucial.
Portion control for weight loss is important
Because at some point, you’ll need to do it.
Having lower calorie foods is great
Everyone should implement them.
I have even written on such foods on other blogs before.
Because they are lower in calories and will help reduce weight
And aid in weight loss.
But at some point, you have to get used to portion control.
Now, this can be said for people who are even in shape or considered fit or,
At their ideal weight, they enjoy.
Even for myself, I LOVE sweets.
Growing up in an Italian home you tend to come across
Finely and wonderfully baked sweets every now and then
And if you don’t be careful that weight can creep up on you
But this applied even further to people who are severely overweight.
Portion control is needed.
If you just go on and have 1 plate of dinner
Then 2 plates
And then move on to a third.
Your calories will rise
Which will keep you out of a deficit.
So As I have said many times before,
It's important to stay in a deficit so you lose weight
And how do you do that?
Well, some might say you can use a BMR equation to get an idea of your BMR.
And this tends to give a decent idea, but it isn’t accurate.
And it can also severely drop a person who is highly overweight’s calories too much.
And if you drop calories too drastically you will generally relapse and end up eating
A lot of calories again and not lose any weight.
So, the best way to go about this is,
To eat lower calorie-dense foods and control your portions for each meal.
Also, eat satiating more foods with your meal such as higher protein foods and certain carbs.
And limit your food intake to one plate.
This doesn’t mean if you get hungrier later you can’t have a low-calorie snack or some fruit.
But for now, you want to get into the habit of training yourself to control portions.
And as you do this the weight will come off over time
And down the road when you are in a better-weighted situation,
You can play around with your calories
As in the future, you would have not only lost weight
But most likely added on muscle which requires more calories to sustain.
It still doesn’t mean you can always go off and eat whatever you want
But there is more room for meals and snacks you like.
So if you are severely overweight,
And the more overweight you are
Portion control for weight loss is important.
Depending on your size it doesn’t have to be applied so strictly but everyone’s case differs.
