Anyone else ever struggle with portion control…or just me 🙋♀️
Use these three tips if you’re not sure how much you should be eating 👇🏻
Portion control is a topic that comes up all the time when I’m coaching my students.
It kinda makes sense if you think about it, right?
There are so many different methods and philosophies when it comes to what and how much you should be eating. It’s hard to know which is the right method.
Believe it or not, there used to be a time when I wasn’t the only thing hopping on the scale.
Yep, you guessed it, I used to weigh my food out. Like every day, every meal. 🙈
Then I’d spend the rest of the day doing food math trying to figure out if I’d end up under or over on my macro count for the day.
There was also a time when I used those handy little calorie counting apps.
Oh man, I spent so much time searching for and adding in every single bit of food I ate.
I used those nifty colored containers and counted points too.
Basically any sort of portion control you can think of, I tried it.
And I always felt hungry. 😭🤬
So, how do you know how much food you should be eating?
🧘♀️You tune into your own body so that you can [re]learn how much is the right amount of food for YOUR body on that particular day. Which means you won’t ever have to count, track, or weigh again..
🐌You slow down when you’re eating so that you can better gauge what ‘full’ enough feels like to you. Which means you won’t have to rely on some external force to control you.
🤙🏻You give yourself the gift of enjoying your meals so that you can not only feel physically full, but satisfied too. Which means you won’t get done eating only to peruse the cupboards eating until you feel like you finally hit the spot.
