The Right Nutrition Portion — What is It?
Today I would like to focus on portions of proper nutrition. Switching to a proper diet (a truly healthy diet) does not guarantee you the normalization of weight, because even absolutely healthy food can be overfed and you will gain weight. After all, nutritionists have programs of proper nutrition for weight loss, weight gain, etc. and proper nutrition does not reduce weight. In fact, it is important to combine products, their time of use and, most importantly, the size of portions.
So, about portions... We're only talking about healthy meals
1. If your weight is standing at the same point, then the portions you eat now are equal to energy costs. These are ideal portions for you, BUT if you want to lose weight, just reduce them by 20% (not vegetable salads, and energy-rich food!)
2. If your weight is growing, even though you are strictly on proper nutrition, then your portions are far from those that you need to ensure the vitality of the body! Reduce them by 20-30% if you need to stop weight gain and 50% if you want to lose weight.
3. If you feel hungry, then you have problems with your diet:
- Poor carbohydrates
- Poor dietary fiber
- Poor proteins
4. Be sure to look at what you eat! Not calories should be counted, but properly organize your table. Every day you should have 400-500 grams of vegetables! Divide them into 2-3 meals and you will understand that most of the plate at least for lunch and dinner should be occupied with them! And then everyone likes to count calories: for example, a piece of cake (low-calorie on a sugar substitute) and a piece of oily fish of one calorie, but can they be compared by the value they carry to you?
And one more important point! Do not seek to reduce portions sharply and much! Don't drive fat off your body faster than it can go! Remember that health is more important! What goes fast is coming back. Every dropped kg needs to be fixed on your body!
