This book is THE solution to weight loss: becoming aware of your portions. It works. I suggest you try it. My co-worker lost weight using this book, so I decided to try it for myself. Don't worry--you will not have to eat tiny portions or count calories, and be hungry, and it does not even feel like a diet. Young provides tips, tricks, and solutions for every situation you may be faced with and for every eating style around. The 30 day diary helps alot.
we buy relate to what a normal size meal should look like. Young will help
anyone trying to drop a few pounds without feeling like they are a rigid
diet. And they won't be hungry!! Great guidelines to follow both for adults
and children. I love the sample meal plans, snacks and visuals. And the
timelines tracking how portions have crept up is an amazing eye opener.
As in The Portion Teller, Young says that bad diet and weight gain come more from how MUCH we eat than from what we eat. The Portion Teller Plan is full of useful, practical advice on how to correctly estimate and control portion sizes. The examples are terrific. The small boxed-in reality checks are both amusing and, to some extent, shocking.
I found Th Portion Teller Plan to be fascinating , with all sorts of interesting facts, stories and tidits. More importantly, this book is a practical, real-world, useful, tested means of taking control of your diet and managing your weight. I highly recommend it.
