Food & Fitness: Proper Portions is Vital in Meal Planning
proper portions xxl

Knowing how to eat healthy can be a challenge for anyone but if you have diabetes, pre-diabetes or insulin resistance deciphering what and how much to put on your plate can feel like a monumental task. There is a simple way to regulate your portion sizes and what to eat.

To manage your blood glucose levels, and your weight you must focus on the total amount of carbohydrates in your diet. That means increasing non-starchy vegetables and high protein foods while decreasing breads, cereals, rice, pasta, starchy vegetables, fruit and dairy foods. Once you have a clear picture of the foods that contribute carbohydrates to your diet there are several ways of limiting the amount you eat daily. One simple but very successful way to manage portion sizes is the plate method. A few simple steps will help you create a healthy plate without a drawerful of measuring cups and spoons.

food labelCheck the Serving Size

The way servings are listed on food labels can be fairly deceptive. For instance, take a 20 ounce soda – most people would probably consider that one serving without taking a peek at the label. However, a single serving size is 8 ounces, which means that bottle of soda is actually 2.5 servings!

Always check the “Serving Size” and “Servings per Container” section on the nutrition facts label first – usually the servings are much smaller than you think. If you eat two servings of the food item in question, for example, you have to double the calories and nutrients listed on the rest of the label.

For a standard 2,000 calorie diet, keep in mind that 400 or more calories per serving is a lot, 100 is moderate, and 40 or less is considered low.
