Throughout the site, you will find opportunities to read advice and share your own tips. For instance, our visitors have shared some great advice on portion control! For TracyJoy12, it’s all about planning:
“Each evening I get my food ready for the next day … otherwise I will eat way too much. That leaves dinner as my only ‘spur of the moment’ portioning. I’ve been doing this for a month, I’ve dropped four and a half pounds and I’ve found that I can’t eat much at dinnertime anyway — my stomach has clearly shrunk!”
Sounds like that simple step of pre-portioning servings of food has worked wonders for TracyJoy.
You can read other great portion control advice at Readers Respond: Portion Control. And if you’ve got your own portion-managing advice to share, please tell us your top tips!

Yes, pre-planning is a good thing but it is also important to understand how various things adds on to your “fat zone”.
I was watching a video at getdietsolutionprogram.com which talks about various foods that DON’T help to burn you food and that list of foods include very important items like whole bread, processed butter etc which on contrary adds to fat rather than reduce them.
So, to it is best to make a list of such items which helps to burn fat.

Portion control is something that does take some time to master. If you are trying to loose weight it’s a must! What I have noticed is that you are never really hungry to the point where you have to overeat, if you eat more frequently.
If you take small steps eating this way everyday, you have a chance to be successful.

Portion control is very important, but so is understanding how foods work together. Outside the considerations of various illnesses (hypertension & diabetes come to mind), your diet should be based on balance, variety and moderation (ie. portion control). Proper diet can help keep you lean, but don’t skip the exercise, it helps keep your heart, lungs, bones, joints & muscles (the list goes on) healthy – it’s a two-pronged approach!
