Are You Eating Too Much?

Chances are that you are eating too much food.

Since a majority of Americans are overweight or obese, it’s likely that your portion sizes are bigger than they need to be.

If you are trying to maintain your weight, eyeballing can work, BUT if you want to lose weight than start measuring.

At first, you don’t even need to change WHAT you eat.

All you have to do is cut back on the portion sizes.

Instead of one cup of oatmeal, have 1/2 cup of oatmeal (and add a couple of hard boiled eggs)

Instead of a super-large banana, have  a small one.  I always look for the smallest size bananas when shopping. Since bananas are one food that I don’t buy organic, there are some MONSTER bananas out there!

Instead of a Giant handful of almonds, measure them out to 1/4 cup.

Start measuring your food.

Especially  the starches like potatoes, chips, potato chips 😉 , cereal, pasta AND fats like nuts, nut butters, avocado, mayo, and oils

The numbers add up and you could easily be eating 500-1000 or more calories per week than you realize.
