Keeping track of your calories and monitoring your weight are keys to learning what works for you. The Perfect Portion cookbook makes calorie “counting” a snap, so it’s easy to keep track of how many calories you are eating. All of the recipes in the book are broken down into 100 calorie portions – whether you are looking for a 100 calorie snack or a 500 calorie dinner, we have the perfect portion you are looking for.
If you do want to lose weight, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends slow, steady weight loss by decreasing calorie intake and increasing physical activity. Whether your goal is a small calorie reduction to prevent weight “creep” or a larger reduction for greater weight loss, you can generally equate a reduction of 3,500 calories for a pound of weight loss. Therefore to lose one pound in a month you would need a daily reduction of roughly 100 calories, and to lose a pound in a week you’d need a reduction of 500 calories a day. Consult your doctor before making dramatic changes in diet or physical activity.
No matter what your weight loss goal, The Perfect Portion cookbook helps you find the healthiest way to cut calories by featuring fabulous recipes, meal planning guides and more… which in turn helps you to reduce empty calories from added sugars, fats, and alcohol ALL WHILE helping you with perfect portion sizes!
