Day #23 Portion Control. The first 100 days: A journey to health and wellness.

Day #23

Portion control is not something we have discussed in the past but it has been a big part of our success.

Dr. Sferra gave us portion control advice when we began this journey. He told us to follow the hand chart (shown above) because it is a good reference to have when making healthy food choices at home and out-side the home.

 When making a plate of food at home we follow the 25-25-50 rule. Our lunches and dinners are made up of 25% lean meat, 25% starch and 50% fibrous vegetables (see picture example).

We hope you find these tips helpful when making healthy food choices.
