Portion control?

I get lots of questions about portion control with clean eating! I try not to focus so much on calories as the fact that you are eating clean, whole foods. The problem comes when you are eating too much from one category and not enough from another so you want to make sure to balance. This is just a brief overview as a guideline. I try to eat 5-6 meals a day, with a protein as part of at least 4 of those, a veggie at least 3 and a fruit with 2. This varies for different people based on your weight, weight loss goals, and needs. You do NOT want to limit your calories to less than 1000 ever. This will just put your body into starvation mode and cause the opposite effect you are hoping for! If you really struggle with portion control and knowing what to eat, the 21 Day Fix is an amazing FOOL PROOF program to provide just that along with 30 minute workouts!

Did you know that you can approximate your portion sizes even when you are not able to weigh or measure your food? This is a great way to make sure you're not overdoing it!

Again, this is just a guideline, and doesn't include everything, but it's a great start! Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about cleaning up your nutrition, your specific needs, and the best way to get started TODAY!
