Portion Control Diet in Greeley, CO
What is a portion control diet?
Most patients do not keep track of the amount of calories they consume daily, or the physical activity necessary to work those calories off. For example, did you know that in order to burn the calories from one slice of pepperoni pizza, you would need to jog for about 30 minutes? Portion control meal plans are designed to help you meet your nutrition and weight loss goals. This approach, in conjunction with regular physical activity, can optimize your weight loss results.
Why is a portion control diet used?
A portion control diet may be considered if you have experienced:
- Difficulty losing weight with other diets
- Overeating / binge eating and purging
- Extreme weight gain
- Inability to stop eating, even when full
- Trouble with knowing how much to eat
