Eating Smaller Portions

Practicing portion control can help you  learn to be satisfied eating less food, which can help you both physically and financially.  The weight control information Network recommends that you learn the difference between a serving and a portion — although those words are often used interchangeably– a serving size is the amount of food listed on the nutrition facts of the label and a portion is the amount of food you choose to eat.   If you’re like many of us, you may have a tendency to overeat at times.  Whether it’s delicious holiday food or drive-thru impulse snacking, overeating can be dangerous.  From digestive problems to high glucose levels, there is more to over eating then just gaining weight.   Adults who had multiple small meals every day tended to eat better, and weight less, than those who had fewer but larger meals, in a recent study.  People eating fewer meals tend to eat the most at night, and to drink alcohol with meals, both of which might contribute to their higher body mass index (BMI), a measure of weight relative to height, the researchers said.
