4 -Watch your portions
Whatever you eat, watch your portion sizes. Enjoy one scoop of ice cream…not three! In the long run, you can also gain weight from healthy food if you eat too much. “A serving size is one handful. A medium apple is bigger than a handful, so it’s worth two servings,” says Dr. Lau. The smaller the person, the smaller the handful, and therefore also the serving size.”
While he doesn’t ask his patients to count calories, the doctor observes that those who are most successful at maintaining their weight are those who keep an accurate diary of what they eat.
