Just as important as what you are eating is how much. You’ve spent the last seven weeks upgrading the types of foods you enjoy—now it is time to get real about your portion sizes. Your eyes have been calibrated to a world of super sizing, so this week we’re going to work on learning to recognize healthful portions.
The best way to get a handle on the amount of food you consume is to weigh and measure everything you eat for seven days. Below is a list of portion targets to get you started down the road to perfectly portioned food.
THIS WEEK'S ASSIGNMENT: Break out your measuring cups and spoons and food scale to measure and weigh your food for the next seven days. Use the already portioned Real Food Recipes to keep your focus on real foods, eating three 400-calorie meals and two 150-calorie snacks a day.
