SIZE matters

Hello everyone, one of the main things I have noticed about people and food is that the majority of people do not read nutrition labels on food products they are eating. For example, for a bag of chips many people open the bag and just sit and eat and eat and continue to grab chips from the bag until finally when they are full they have almost consumed the entire bag. My message today is PORTION CONTROL!!! Portion out everything you eat people, if you want chips instead of taking the whole bag dump a portion in a bowl or on your plate. So you don’t end up eating an entire bag of Doritos! If you don’t have a large quanity in front of you to eat then you won’t over eat, make sense right? Another example would be cereal. Most of us just pour cereal into a bowl until it gets to the top but in reality a serving size of cereal is typically around 3/4 a cup!!! So that would mean you are consuming probably around 3 to 4 servings in one sitting. A good suggestion that I would give to all is to use measuring cups to measure out your food. Keep a 1/2 cup measuring spoon in your bag of cerreal so you know exactly how much your eating. READ FOOD LABELS that’s what they are there for!

**Remember this you can eat things that you love that may not be good for you but in moderation is the key!!!!!**
