Portion Size Tip For Weight Loss

If You're Not Losing Weight, These Comparison Photos Could Explain Why

A post shared by Amanda Meixner (@meowmeix) on

Eating healthy foods is just part of the equation when it comes to losing weight. Portion size plays an even bigger role, and these photos prove why. Instagram user meowmeix posted these comparison photos to prove a point about how easy it is to double your calorie amount without even realising it.

Scrambled eggs, avocado toast, and apple and peanut butter seems like the perfect healthy breakfast. You've got protein, healthy fats and carbs, plus fibre. The issue here lies in how much is on the plate. Here's the breakdown of each:

Lower cal meal:
2 eggs + 2 egg whites scrambled
1 piece Ezekiel toast
1/2 an avocado
1 honey crisp apple

Higher cal meal:
4 eggs + 2 egg whites scrambled
1 piece Ezekiel toast
1 whole avocado
1 honey crisp apple
2 tbsp peanut butter

This is just an example of how adding a few extra bites can really add up. If you're struggling to lose weight, look closely at your portions, and track your daily calories for a few days. It could be a very eye-opening experience if you notice that you're eating hundreds of extra calories than you should be eating each day. But then you'll know how to adjust your daily meals so you'll finally start seeing results!
