Dieting Through Portion Control

Introduction And Background
With dieting, you don’t always have to follow a certain rulebook which dictates what you eat daily every single time of the day. Sometimes you can just diet in your way, through exercise or a little self-control and you can even do it through portion control. You must all be wondering how exactly can portion control help because most people only look towards proper diet plans rather than such tactics. Well, read on further to find out whether or not portion control is helpful. You’re in for a surprise!

How Portion Control Can Help
Well, portion control can be pretty helpful. If you are careful of what you eat and how much you eat, you do not get chubby in the first place! Imagine that rice is being cooked at your home. In one scenario, you fill the plate entirely and then help yourself to another portion as well! In the second scenario, you only fill the plate a quarter and that is all you eat. Now, which person is bound to stay fitter? Obviously it is the person in the second scenario! This is how portion control can help you. You just have to manage your appetite and try to eat less than usual.

Benefits Of Portion Control
There are numerous benefits of dieting through portion control and almost all of them can contribute greatly to your health. And on top of that you’ll be losing weight. It’s kind of the best situation there is, right?

  • You don’t have to be picky and choosy about what you eat. In most diets, you have to follow a certain rule and a certain diet plan from which you cannot astray. With portion control, you can eat whatever is cooked daily but with self-control. Your portion has to be small but other than that you can have anything you want.
  • You don’t have to fuss about in the kitchen or make an effort to get your special food made. You can sit with your family and enjoy the same meal that they are having. The only difference will be in the quantity, not the quality!
  • Another benefit of portion control is that you are having a bit of everything. In most diets, you are told not to have either fats or carbs. Sometimes you are totally rid of an important element of the food pyramid. With portion control, you’ll be eating proteins, fats as well as carbs. Their quantity will be sufficient enough for you to get what you want.
  • It is most likely that you’ll be getting your vitamins and minerals as well and you won’t face any nutritional deficiency if you are eating the normal stuff even if it’s very little.
  • If you get in the habit of portion control, it is likely that you will be able to easily maintain the weight that you have lost.

Portion Control And Appetite Suppression
You know the importance of portion control but do you know how hard it is to actually stick to smaller portions? Imagine your mother made your favorite dish. What will you do? Of course, you will yearn to eat more and probably be unable to control yourself. This is where appetite suppression comes in. You will only be able to apply portion control to your daily life if you have suppressed your appetite. This is extremely important, very necessary and is the key factor in all diets. There are numerous ways to achieve appetite suppression. Some doctors even advise that you give the food a good ten second glance while moving your head from one side to the other whispering ‘no’ to yourself. It does work. Those ten seconds give you the stamina to rethink and reevaluate what you are about to do and not only does it do that, but you actually find yourself less tempted.

Other Ways To Suppress The Appetite
Other ways to suppress the appetite include drinking water before every meal so there is less space in the stomach for food and you automatically won’t eat much. There are supplements as well but most people prefer not to have them. There are foods which naturally suppress the appetite such as berries or almonds which are healthy, nutritious and also very appetizing in smaller portions. You only have to do the research and you will find a technique very much to your liking which will enable you to suppress the appetite and look towards portion control.

Conclusion
The conclusion you can draw from this is that dieting through portion control is not only good for weight loss but it will also be good for other stuff as well. As you can see, there are many benefits to it and it will be easier for you to diet rather than turn to an entirely different food plan.
