What is Portion Control?

Do you struggle with portion control? What does “portion control” really mean?

Portion control is simply knowing what a healthy serving of food looks like. Do you eat a bowl full of mixed nuts or count out a select number? Or maybe something in between? Portion control is a learned skill. Out of scale serving sizes at most restaurants have skewed our thinking so much that most of us don’t have a clue how much we should be eating.  This is why it’s possible to stay overweight even when we’re eating healthy foods. It’s possible we are simply eating too much or too much of one food category and not enough of another.

Learning what foods and how much of those foods to eat is an important life skill. Why does losing weight have to be tedious, complicated and time-consuming, like counting calories? Rather, can’t we just learn what a healthy plate looks like?

Yes, we can! We can learn this invaluable skill and I would love to help show you how.

The Portion Fix is an easy-to-follow portion control system that takes the guesswork out of knowing what and how much to eat. Portion Fix teaches you what foods comprise a healthy diet, and how to eat the right amount without tedious calorie counting.

How does it work? It’s simple. You work with color-coded containers assigned for different macros. Proteins go in a red container, veggies in a green container, and so on.  You simply follow the Portion Fix Eating Plan to determine how many of each container you should eat per day to reach your goals (weight loss, maintenance, etc).

Each of the color coded containers is measured to deliver just the right amounts of the various food groups: proteins, fruits, veggies, grains/starches, healthy fats and “condiments” like seeds and dressings. If your food fits in the container, then you can eat it. A day of eating according to this plan might look something like this:

The Portion Fix reteaches our brains how to create a well-balanced diet by including foods from each of your containers every day.  And you’ll learn just how much of those foods to eat to achieve your goals.
Life is about enjoying food as well.  You’ll also learn how to include treats in your diet so there is no deprivation.

For just $39.99US/$43.99CDN you can learn this invaluable skill and have me coaching you through the process. And if you are looking to get serious results by combining 30 minute workouts, the portion controlled eating system, and one meal a day included, the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack is on sale this month for $140US/$154CDN. Losing weight has never been simpler!
