Ask the TLC-Chef … How important is it to weigh food when dieting?

People blame weight gain on a lot of things; heredity, age, and metabolism, are just a few.

However, for many people, eating too much food is really what’s behind the extra junk in their trunk. It’s important then that we pay particular attention not to just what we eat, but how much.

When you are doing a world-leading TLC-Program you need to more than estimate your portions (and this often applies to many programs and diets).

Did you know that most people underestimate their food intake by 50?  This is mostly due to not being aware of how much we eat as we are ‘eating on the go”. So, while we may dread the thought of weighing our portions it is really important if you want to achieve a healthy goal weight.

Here’s what you’ll need to properly measure foods:

  • A Liquid measuring cup
  • Measuring cups especially if you are baking your own TLC-Soy and Linseed Loaf
  • Measuring spoons
  • A Digital Kitchen Scale is best. As you know accuracy is key while doing Phase 2 and 3 of your TLC-Program so you want those quantities to be 100% that way you will achieve results accurately

Everything you do is a choice.
Either you choose to do things correctly and adhere to your TLC-Program or you don’t.  Most Clients achieve their weight loss in record time and at the same time benefit from all the wellbeing aspects of the TLC-Program, by doing things correctly.

So weigh your food, it’s one of those choices that will steer you in the right direction!
