Most people mistake portion size for serving size. So, what's the difference?
 The terms "portion" and "serving" are often used interchangeably, but they don't mean the same thing.
 A "portion" is the amount of food you choose to eat for meals or snacks (like a plateful of pasta or a handful of raisins). The amount you choose to put in your plate.
 A "serving" on the other hand is the amount of food that experts recommend you eat (like 1 cup of milk or 1 ounce of bread). The standard measurement of food. Servings are listed on a food's nutrition facts label too.
 For example,cereals,fruit juices,chocolates are often sold in sizes that constitute at least three to four servings,but most people eat the whole thing ,thinking they have eaten one serving. When buying food and fruit juices it is important to check the nutrition label for serving size. Many times,manufacturers will list unusually small serving sizes so their product appears to have fewer calories and fat. Also when choosing your portion, try to make it as close as possible to these recommended serving sizes.Your health in your hands.

Top 10 Habits That Can Help You Lose Weight

1. Evaluate your eating habits. Are you eating late at night, nibbling while cooking, finishing the kids' meals? Take a look around, and it will be easy to identify a few behaviors you can change that will add up to big calorie savings.

2. If you fail to plan, plan to fail. You need a strategy for your meals and snacks. Pack healthful snacks for the times of day that you know you are typically hungry and can easily stray from your eating plan.

3. Always shop with a full belly. It's a recipe for disaster to go into the grocery store when you are hungry. Shop from a prepared list so impulse buying is kept to a minimum. Eating right starts with stocking healthy food in your pantry and refrigerator.

4. Eat regular meals. Figure out the frequency of your meals that works best in your life and stick to it. Regular meals help prevent bingeing.

5. Eat your food sitting down at a table, and from a plate.Food eaten out of packages and while standing is forgettable. You can wind up eating lots more than if you sit down and consciously enjoy your meals.

6. Serve food onto individual plates, and leave the extras back at the stove. Bowls of food on the table beg to be eaten, and it takes incredible will power not to dig in for seconds. Remember, it takes about 20 minutes for your mind to get the signal from your belly that you are full.

7. Eat slowly, chew every bite, and savor the taste of the food. Try resting your fork between bites and drinking plenty of water with your meals.

8. Don't eat after dinner. This is where lots of folks pack on the extra pounds. If you are hungry, try satisfying your urge with a non-caloric beverage or a piece of hard candy. Brushing your teeth after dinner helps reduce the temptation to eat again.

9. If you snack during the day, treat the snack like a mini-meal. The most nutritious snacks contain complex carbohydrates and a small amount of protein and fat.

10. Start your day with breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day. After a long night's rest, your body needs the fuel to get your metabolism going and give you energy for the rest of the day.

Weight loss is a JOURNEY not a quickfix!

Tuesday, 22 January 2013


There is a connection between weightloss and healthy lifestyle that only few people make.
Most people never make the connection because of the deceit of fad diets and weightloss pills as the 'quick fix' for drastic weightloss.Without asking,'if these quick fixes really work,why is everybody not lean'? Understanding how we got to this point in our weight journey is always the first step to dealing with the problem. Without this understanding, addressing weight loss will be like cutting a tree from its branches.
Being overweight is just a fraction of the pie, there are more serious underlying factors that contribute to weight gain than what you eat and a sedentary lifestyle.
At weight a minute,we help YOU make this connection by motivating, coaching and supporting you towards having a paradigm shift from weight loss to health consciousness .To lose weight, you have to be healthy! And its amazing to know that weight loss occurs naturally when your goal is working towards a healthy YOU!


WEIGT LOSS is about asking the right questions! I have been there ,so I know.
Is it worth having all you've labored for and yet not have the physical health to enjoy it?

Our society is structured for us to get fat. From the structure of our food system to the convenience technology has brought to our lives,we are like pigs fattened for slaughter without even realizing the powerful forces at play. We cram our bodies with readily available high fat ,nutritionally empty foods and sit passively in front of our TV sets . Simply put,modern society is structured in a way that sentences us to a life of being fat.

For  healthy weight loss we all know the equation; Eat well and Exercise  OR Calorie in, Calorie out .But it will interest you to know that making healthy choices as regards what to eat and not is sometimes hard to follow through as temptation is everywhere, and science shows us that our brains are wired to give in. I have been there, Get the point, you can lose weight without being healthy but you can’t be healthy without losing weight. And for you to maintain your ideal weight and keep that shape for life ,the weight loss program must be sustainable by fitting perfectly into your lifestyle. 

Have a great day!
