Yes. Size matters. Especially when it comes to... FOOD! Another food blog this week.
If you're anything like me, you probably love food. When I sit down to dinner, I usually clean my plate. And I like to have seconds. When you're eating healthy (or when you're not) you need to make sure you're keeping your portion size in mind.
Check out this nifty quiz I found from Prevention Magazine! I think you'll be shocked to learn how much you should be eating of what.
They also have a downloadable PDF that you can save (and print if you want) that shows portions as compared to common items, like a tennis ball or dice.
Smaller meals are much better for you than eating a lot of food in one sitting. Eating 5 or 6 mini meals a day, every 3 hours or so, is much much better than 2 or 3 large meals several hours apart. In addition, if you're eating good snacks, fruits, veggies, nuts, yogurts, and healthy meals, you're likely to feel full longer, and be less tempted by sugary snacks or get so hungry you over eat, or eat whatever is near by, even if its bad for you.
Thats it for this week. Have fun with the quiz! ^.~ Feel free to post your scores.
Next week, awesome abs exercises!
