Portions Count

Portions Count
Portion sizes are important. Your pouch or sleeve will usually let you know when enough is enough, but by starting with the right portion, you will ensure that you don’t overdo it. Use small plates and bowls and occasionally measure out food so that you can accurately eyeball a ¾ cup portion. Most people judge portion sizes to be smaller than they really are–if in doubt, measure. Small bites, chewing well and eating slowly also help to control portions.
