Diets often becomes something that is not easy, so many people are reluctant to do it, or stop in the middle of the road. The things that make the diet are difficult and complicated one is reserved to calculate food intake, in which we must weigh food, calorie counting and more.
However, how complicated can it be abandoned because the diet is not a math exam. We need to count-count that we already have, that our hands.
In easy, here’s how we calculate your intake by hand: open Palm, and as much as that’s a serving of protein should we eat. One of the Palm that is roughly equivalent to one chicken breast or two pieces of tempeh.
For vegetables, portions of more or less as much as a fist. Imagine the broccoli or spinach that much. The glut is not enough?
Well to carbohydrates, sufficient portions of the size of the hands while forming the bowl. You can put a piece of sweet potato in there or 4-5 rice scoop, or a piece of fruit that is rich in carbohydrates. While the fat gets the smallest portion i.e. of our thumbs.
Using it for every meal, we’ll get enough protein to maintain muscle mass and making us hungry not quick. While carbohydrates and fats that we eat is enough to give energy when exercise, recover, and maintain the level of hormones.
And most importantly, the use of simple ways that will keep our food intake when dieting so we can erode the fat in the body without having to think hard.
