Friday Fit Club: Portion Control

Alright lovelies, I'm a little late on posting this since it's no longer Friday, but oh well.  I've been really busy this weekend since my mom and sister have been here and because I had to come in to work over the weekend.  Major vibe killer!  But, better late than never, right?  Right.

So since it's Superbowl Sunday for most of you - and Superbowl Istillhavetocomeintowork Monday for me - what a better way to stay on track with your weight/health goals than a post on food portion control!  I'm a gal that loves to eat so diets have never really been my thing.  Thankfully, my BBFF has got a pretty do-able portion control method that I think I can handle.  Check it out:

I am always gonna be a fat girl at heart! I love food and I will not be surprised if I did quit working out and gain back some weight again! That's life and its just gonna happen. But for now, I'm gonna try to control the urges and temptation that is all around me.  If you look at the picture below...

This is my Dinnerware made by Corelle. The Comcast remote is there to shows you the size comparison. I used to be a fatty that used the actual dinner plate. And girl, you must believe that I used the FULL advantage of the size of this plate! Not only used the whole perimeter but to see how much food I could pile onto it.  Now that I'm watching my diet, I use the "salad" plate. Wah. But it does make a HUGE difference. I also use the FIST Measurement. 

Other than Vegetables, I can not eat meat or anything else that is more than the size of my fist. (I would like to brag a little bit here. I am happy to let you know that this is the only time I'm very happy with my "Man Hand's". I probably have bigger hands than an average girl with my height and built. HAHA.) Anyways...check out my IG ACCOUNT to see what kind of food I eat. Or you can use this portion Control method... 

I definitely utilized my portion control all last week because I didn't work out as much as I should of. Just remember that losing weight is 80% Diet and 20% Exercise. I firmly believe in that.  I hope you guys learned a thing or two, or if you have heard these ideas before, I totally recommend you apply these methods to your life. Especially on the days you don't want to work out.

Have a great weekend guys, and its okay to indulge in moderation. If you feel like a candy bar. Eat it. Instead of the whole thing, cut in half and save the rest for the next day.


  1. yes to this. i live by the 90/10 rule: 90% clean eating, 10% whatever!!!.. a big jump from 100% clean eating for two whole years!

    Vodka and Soda

  2. I am horrible with portion control. I need to start with smaller portions with the thought that I can go back for more if I still want it because I can usually convince myself to skip on seconds. Thanks for the tips!

  3. I have a VERY hard time with portion control. I've noticed that I can actually eat LARGER portions of "good" stuff rather than smaller portions of "bad" stuff and feel more satisfied not only physically, but mentally too.

  4. I'm a food freak myself! I can eat like a man! I'll try to use some of your tips, because way too often my plate is too full. And I agree with you on the moderation part! I think food is one of the enjoyments in life, and being too strict makes us miss out!

  5. Thanks for letting me guest post:). love ya! tell your mom and sis, i said hellO!

    xoxo, K.Lee

  6. Great tips. My dinner plates are enormous too, so we eat off the salad plates. Even those are still more than enough. Why is the dinnerware industry promoting obesity?! LOL
