The Importance of Consumption Changes during Lifestyle Changes

Sammy has recently lost and maintained a one-hundred-pound weight loss. This was a journey; not a short one, nor an easy one.

Lifestyle changes are never easy. You may have heard the phrase: “it takes 21 days to form (or break) a habit.” Take those 21 days and multiply them by three. It’s actually more like sixty. I will be heading into a lot more detail of portion control, how to pair meal items, intermittent fasting (what it is, how to do it and why it works for some), along with the ketogenic change in diet (which in my personal and non-medical opinion should only be temporary). Until then, consider the rule I share with my kids: your stomach is the size of your closed fist. Yes, it expands – but it does not need to expand for every. single. meal.

Portion control is vital. Timing of meals is vital. Liquid consumption … surprise, also vital.

Most of us will weigh ourselves on a scale … so why not weigh our food too? Ounces vary based on their dry weight versus cooked weight. It is crucial to understand what an actual portion is. Again, I will dive into a lot more detail soon. I rely on my MaxKare Digital Kitchen Food Scale, because eyeballing is not all that accurate … as much as I like to believe in it when I am working through a weight loss and weight management program.

This week, I will be posting a recipe that will provide a necessity for this little gem. It’s also super light weight and fits comfortably on our kitchen shelving. It is tempered glass, so I do not stack it.

Happy weighing!
