The SECRET to Losing Weight WITHOUT Counting Calories

The SECRET to Losing Weight WITHOUT Counting CaloriesI can honestly say I achieved my results WITHOUT EVER tracking calories, however, it doesn’t mean I’m not mindful of how many calories certain foods contain. For example, I don’t eat potato chips because I know they are packed with empty calories.

What’s needed is a system that keeps calories under check without the necessity to count them every meal… or ever.

What you need is these 3 tools:

  • Method for measuring portions
  • List of acceptable foods
  • Meal plan that uses portions of acceptable foods

Trust me, this is sooo easy.

1. ‘Handy’ Method For Measuring Portions

You’ve probably heard health recommendations speak of ‘portions’… “Eat 3-5 portions of vegetable a day”.

But of course, the question begs, “How big is a portion?”

Well, here is a simple principle I use to determine my portions. Pay attention here because this will become an important principle you’ll also use many times a day.

How to Measure Carbohydrate Portions

Portion of carbohydrates = size of a closed fist.

How to Measure Protein Portions

Portion of protein = width, length and thickness of your four fingers from tip to base (roughly the size of a pack of cards).

I know it doesn’t look like much but you’ll be eating several portions throughout the day.

How to Measure Fat Portions

Portion of fats = size of your thumb.

Is this ‘Handy’ Method Accurate?

Yes, it is accurate enough when you are portioning acceptable foods.

Bigger people have bigger hands, smaller people have smaller hands so you generally stay within your calorie range.

Can you believe it’s so easy to keep your eating habits in check just using these simple measurements? Try it out during your next meal!
