By Rachel Jones - May 10, 2023

Do you find it hard to start and continue a diet? Well, you aren’t the only one. There are many people who find it hard to follow a specific diet and to well stay on it. This is partly because diets mean that you are restricting yourself from the things you enjoy all at once. Unfortunately, some of us need time to make changes to our diets. This is why some people prefer making changes to their diet in stages. However, you may also want to try out portion control. Yes. it isn’t a diet but it can help you live a healthier life.

The first thing you need to know about portion control is that it is not a diet. This means that you don’t have to say good bye to any of your favorite things. Instead, portion control is a lifestyle change. Which is much easier than going on a diet. As we previously mentioned, with portion control, you are able to still enjoy everything you love eating. However, you will simply change how much you eat of it. This simply means enjoying smaller portions of something. Now, yes this can be hard at first but you have to remember you are still eating but in a much more healthier way.

Deciding to try out portion control is a great idea and it isn’t too complicated. You see, all you need to keep in mind is how much you are eating of one thing. For example, try to have everything on your plate be as big as your palm. This includes your protein, vegetables, carbs and fats. You will notice that your plate looks much more organized. But that’s not all. You will also notice that even though it looks like a little food, you still feel full after eating. Now when it comes to sweet things such as desserts, you can simply follow the same rule.
