A trial of 186 overweight or obese women were randomly assigned to one of three groups: standard advice to eat less, another was taught to choose portions based on energy density, and the other received portion-controlled meals. The last group lost the most at first, but at the end of a year, all lost about 10 pounds. Those focusing on types of food did better than those trying to resist larger portions.
LifeTip: Eat more veggies, fruit, legumes, whole grains—they are lower in calories without sugar and fats. Watch “Lose Weight Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
