January 4, 2011 Day 4- Watch Your Portions!http://pferde-gala.de/gb/LifeStyle/January+4%2C+2011+Day+4-+Watch+Your+Portions%21.html
Hopefully, youre drinking more water, reading food labels and keeping a food journal. Are you wondering how you should cut some of the calories you are consuming? Have you looked at your portions? Do you think you know how much 1 cup or 1/4 a cup is? Unless you are actually measuring, you might suffer from portion distortion. I have personally learned that sometimes my measurements are wrong. Therefore, here are my suggestions for today. If you cont have some already, purchase some measuring spoons/cups, you can get a simple set from dollar store. Try measuring your food before you eat so you can see how you are really eating.
The Ultimate Fitness Guide contains pages on illustrations and examples of how to estimate your portions without buying measuring tools. For example, 3oz of meat is like the size of a deck of cards.

Definitely one of my challenges but I am sure it can be
I know I could do a MUCH better job of analysing portion
sizes. The visual cues like a meat serving is about the size of
a deck of cards certainly helps and Id like to focus more of my
healthy eating habits on maintaining proper portion sizes. Thanks
for the reminder to keep a close eye on how much I eat.
