National Heart and Blood Institute of the NIH (National Institutes of Health) advises us all about the dangers of how our food portions have changed dramatically over the last 20 years. The concept of the ‘super size’ may make for enticing marketing campaigns and a perceived value by the customer (gee, look how much more food I’m getting for the same price), but it is ruining our health. Increases in waistlines and body weight continue to plague most Americans.
Jen Powter, a Kuel Life Coach, knows what we Kuel Women are up against. Herself a single Mom and CEO of her company, Jen was burning out and 35+pounds overweight. She set out to redesign her life and has helped hundreds of other women do the same.
In the video below, Jen shares what the ‘Portion/Distortion’ ACTUALLY looks like and how to get around it. It’s an investment worth making – even if it’s a first baby step to taking back control over our own bodies and starting the path to weight loss.
For example, the following illustrates a ‘Portion of Cheese’; served in three different ways. Jen shares with us that the block “looks” like a portion, but the slice and/or the grated looks ‘small’. If you choose to slice your cheese; you may end up with two or three servings. Over time, this behavior can lead to unnecessary weight gain.
