My Weight Loss Transformation

I’ve struggled with weight for my entire life. If I’m not actively trying to lose weight, I am gaining. I could never find the in between.

Whether your goal is weight loss, better health, or disease management, portion control plates can impact behavior change and help you see results. We all have great intentions to eat better, eat less, and control our portions. But when it’s meal time and we’re famished, anything on our plate if fair game! Bread? Give me 3. Cheese?

Studies show, if you double the amount of food on your plate, you will unknowingly eat 35% more food than if you had a modest portion. […]
