Alright so portion control is touted as a great weight loss and weight maintenance tool. One of my twitter friends asked me how to measure portion control and I guess it’s just become second nature for me. So here’s my thoughts on the subject…
Robyn’s Tips off the Top of My Head
1. Use smaller plates!
2. One cup of something can be compared to the size of your fist (alot of websites use a baseball, I guess different sized hands and all lol)
3. A 2.5-3 ounce piece of meat can be compared to a deck of cards.

4. Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dinner as a Pauper. Decrease your portion sizes over the day.
5. When packing meals in tupperware for work. Use smaller containers than you might normally use.
Please don’t starve yourself. With portion control comes clean eating and eating regularly through the day to ensure you keep your metabolism rolling!
