Portion control. It’s key if you want to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight and it’s usually carbohydrates that are the tricky customers. Now you could weigh foods out each time, but that can lead to obsessive tendencies in some and isn’t always that practical. I much prefer that people use household measure such as spoons, cups and mugs rather than the scales.
So here are some examples of how you can measure out your portion sizes of some common carbohydrate foods.
Why not do this yourself at home? Weigh out portion sizes and then place them in a suitable cup/mug/measuring device. We keep a cup in our rice container ready to measure out perfect portions everytime we cook. Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
