Hello! I want some advice from you! I'm 17, I live in the Philippines and freshman in college. I have a problem with controlling what I eat. Every time I'm tired and worn out, I eat bread, rice with meat, and junk foods. My body's getting larger so I thought of changing my lifestyle. I've searched about diet and I often read that eating small portions of meal 6 times a day is okay, but the question I want to ask is what do you mean by small portions of meal? You can give more advice! Thank you!
Hi! Try eating your vegetables first, eat more protein (eggs, poultry, fish) and healthy fat (unsalted almonds). Eating foods that contain both protein and fat (fatty fish such as sardines) or protein and carbs (beans, lentils) may be a way to cut back the bread/rice cravings you have when you’re tired.
Here is how your portions should look like:
You see that portion for carbs (rice, bread) is only what can fit into one cupped hand, whereas vegetables can fit into two cupped hands. (For fruits I’d just stick to one fruit as a portion, two cupped hands is just too much fruit sugar if you’re trying to lose weight).
