Portion control is an important aspect of every successful diet, and even if you’re eating lots of healthy meats and vegetables; you have to make sure you’re eating the right amount.

It’s easy to put too much cereal in your bowl, or too many carbohydrates with your evening meal, and a portion control plate can give you an idea on the ideal amount. You may find that you lose weight fast if you start eating the right amounts, but of course there may be times when your body needs more food to recover. Proteins can repair muscles quicker and if you’ve burnt a lot of calories in an intense gym session, a larger portion can be beneficial, so use it as a guide rather than a measuring device.

The more you’re thinking about portion sizes, the healthier you’re likely to be, and sometimes (for weight loss) it’s a case of being a little bit stricter on your appetite.
