Exploring the sense and nonsense of food and health

The Best Advice for Weight Loss

1 Comment

An article from Women’s Health provides sound and simple advice for weight loss that often gets missed or ignored when one follows fad diets. You have probably heard of most of these tried and true suggestions before, but when you put them all together, they just make a lot of good sense. No fads, just the facts based on evidence.

I might add to be aware of portion sizes. Follow the rules of measuring or estimating portions by using your hands: a fist = 1 cup; a cupped hand = 1/2 cup; a meat serving (3 oz) is about the size of your palm; a tablespoon = your thumb and a teaspoon = the tip of your  thumb. There is no need  to weigh foods on a scale. Keeping a food diary or journal is also a helpful idea to increase awareness of what you actually eat each day.
