Want to Lose Some Weight? - Use Your Hands

  • Hey there Fit Body's,

    Melissa and I were cruising the aisles at
    Border's the other day, when, as usual
    I parked my butt on the floor fully absorbed
    in a book.

    My deep concentration was broken by
    primal urges--I was hungry. I found
    Mel a few aisles over also parked
    on the floor. She looked up at me and
    gushed that I had to look at this book.

    The book was by Tosca Reno, an advocate
    of clean eating. Her ideas are similar to what's
    presented in the Fit Body meal plans so in that
    respect she's pretty cool.

    One of her ideas caught my eye, not for its
    originality but more because it's a simple
    reminder/solution for a problem many of
    us have had...

    What's an easy way to figure out portion sizes
    without using a food scale?

    Your paws.

    Here's how it works:

    Protein: about the size of your palm

    Carbs (brown rice, whole wheat pasta, quinoa, etc) : what will fit in 1 cupped hand

    Veggies: what will fit in 2 cupped hands

    If you're like me and not OCD enough or
    patient enough to weigh and measure your
    food this keeps things waaay easy.

    Another plus is that you can never lose your
    hands, but please wash them before playing
    with your food : )

    Go sweat, eat frequently, and show off that
    fit body.

    Committed to rocking your fitness,
