4. Control calories and portions.
Research has proven time and again that to lose weight, the laws of physics still hold true: Eat fewer calories than your body expends and you will lose weight, regardless of the percentage of carbohydrates, fat, and protein in the diet. At Nutrition Together we use a simple calorie translation system (food weights) to teach you which foods are “heavy” and which are “light”. You can still eat the foods you love and lose weight as long as you stay within your daily food weight goal. However, we suggest that you follow the Nutrition Together 10 healthy eating guidelines each day to ensure you have the proper intake of each food group.
