Increase Fertility By Decreasing Your BMI (Part 2)

Posted by The MAB Team on 3/8/2012 to Fertility

As we have learned, fertility and healthy body weights go hand in hand. One of the best ways to ensure weight loss is portion control. Portion control means eating an appropriate and healthy amount of food based on your individual needs. Since weight management is gauged on calorie intake and output, knowing how many calories in a meal or snack is the only way to guarantee that you won’t be overeating.

As we have learned, fertility and healthy body weights go hand in hand. One of the best ways to ensure weight loss is portion control. Portion control means eating an appropriate and healthy amount of food based on your individual needs. Since weight management is gauged on calorie intake and output, knowing how many calories in a meal or snack is the only way to guarantee that you won’t be overeating.

What are ways to encourage portion control? Use measuring cups! Carefully measuring your food will help you to see what 2/3 of a cup of rice actually looks like.

Eat the foods you love, but in moderation and in appropriate portions.

But if you want to take a break from measuring cups and counting calories, go green. Go ahead and pile extra veggies on your plate. The fiber will keep you feeling fuller longer and will help offset hunger.

If you’re stuck without too many options, your day ran late, or you just don’t have time to do anything but use the drive thru, order from the kid’s menu instead.

Use smaller plates. North Americans have a habit of filling their plates to capacity; you’ll eat less if you give food less room on your dish.

Don’t load up your fork in between bites. Take the time to eat your meal, since the faster you eat, the more you’ll eat. Remember that it takes 20 minutes for your brain to signal that your stomach’s full.

And finally, one of the best ways to control portion size is to serve dishes at the source rather than carry serving dishes to the table. Researchers have found that people eat 35% less when the serving dishes are left in the kitchen.
