    Default Handy Portion control


    Cut calories by keeping close tabs on how much you're eating--no matter where you are

    by Gloria McVeigh

    Sept. 5, 2006) -- Eating right-size portions pays off, say Pennsylvania State University scientists, who found out how easily big servings lead to calorie overload.

    On 2 consecutive days in each of 3 weeks, 32 subjects chose as many food portions as they wanted. But the serving sizes changed: regular size portions during week one became 50% larger the second week and doubled during week three.

    Compared with the first week, total daily calories jumped by 335 per day for women and 504 for men during the second week, and by an astonishing 530 for women and 812 for men in the last week.

    To make portion control super easy, print out this guide and carry it with you until you've committed it to memory.[B]

    Please keep in mind that these portion ounces may change slightly according to your body size, but that those portion sizes are proportionate to your needs for your size.

    is...very very very small portions every couple of hours.

    But before I had this surgery done the doctors told me that the best

    way to lose weight is to eat 5-6 small (very small) meals a day.

    That way you will not snack on junk foods and will not be hungry. So

    say you wake up eat a balanced breakfast...at 10am then eat a

    apple..or some kind of fruit, at lunch time have a bowl of soup (

    with a few crackers), at 2pm have 4 saltines with jelly on it, at 5pm

    have your dinner at 7pm have your little snack (very small dish of

    ice cream)

    To be honest I wish I had the will power to do it that way...but had

    other medical problems and needed this surgery done to speed up the

    weigh lose. It is definitely NOT the safest surgery out there since

    I almost died from malnutrion and now have to have my stomach

    stretched every 6 months.

    If ANYONE is thinking of having this done in the future...please

    please please look into it more. Plus the lap band is way safer then

    this surgery ever will be. The doctors that do this surgery can

    learn how to do this prodecedure in a weekend. Make sure they have

    many many many hours of learning how to do this...so what happened to

    me wont happen to you!!

    Just thought I would share this with all of you.

    Hope I am not rambling on.
