Portion control works

by Rachel
(Andover, UK)

I put on tons of weight when I was pregnant with my second child, after not having lost much of the pregnancy weight from my first child two years before.

Several months after the birth I was thrilled with my little bundle of joy, but very depressed about the body I was left with. Something had to be done. But what, when you are looking after a toddler and a baby, running a household and working part time too?

One of the things that was easily within my grasp was to manage the size of my meals. I needed to ensure that I was still getting the right nutritional balance so that both I and my breast-fed baby stayed healthy, but found that simply giving myself about two thirds as much as I gave my husband.

We eat home-cooked food, with plenty of organic vegetables and very little saturated fat (which has helped lower my husband's high cholesterol too), but still have tasty meals and a varied menu.

I still need to tone up quite a bit around the midriff but have lost about 20 lb and two dress sizes so far. I'd like to lose another 10 lb, but I think I've made a good start.

Portion Control ideas
by: Christina Bailey

To help with losing weight, a friend of mine is suggesting I use Flavor Magic Portion Control Sheets, which she describes as basically a portioning guide that also seasons meat and fish. Kind of like the “palm of hand” rule, but more accurate. Does anyone have input on this one? She claims it is working for her with home cooking. I want to give it a shot but it looks like it is only available online.
