Then finding the right portions is probably on your mind.
But calorie counting is usually a recipe for failure: It’s annoying, impractical, and research shows it can be up to 25 percent inaccurate on both sides — calories in, and calories out.
I can’t stand it. There’s a better way for anyone who wants to look and feel better to get the right amount and balance of food at every meal.
All you need is your hand.
Your hand is proportionate to your body, it’s size never changes, and it always with you, making it the perfect tool for measuring – minimal calorie counting.
Let’s Break it down.
For protein it’s a palm size
For carbohydrates is a cupped hand
For fats it’s a thumb size
& for vegetables it’s a fist size which is equivalent to a handful
This is a meal portion specific for you.
As you can see it’s a great starting point for anyone who wants to improve their current diet to get in shape, once you’ve got the hand of you it (no pun intended), the next step is to improve the quality of your food to maximize nutrients and minimize empty calories.
Another great thing about this method is that when you’re not in control of the food choices for example at social do’s, you get what your given but your are in control of the amount you have. And this comes in handy!
Unlike other diets for example no fat, no carbs, fixed eating times etc it makes it difficult to enjoy the evening when you don’t have much option to choose from due to strict rules when following a diet plan.
In this case simply follow the hand guide with options served at the social event, yes, of course it takes a degree of commitment but it’s pretty fair seeing as you’re not restricting yourself from anything just having less of it.
Try applying the hand portions and see what difference it can make for you.
