Benefits of a Serving Size

The serving size of your meal controls the amount of food you eat. The amount of food you consume controls how foods will be digested.  It is still important to eat a well-balanced diet, consisting of fruit and vegetables, whole grains, fish, lean meats and healthy fats.

Avoiding Digestive Problems
Overeating causes a lot of stress for digestive tract. Big meals are hard to process and food sits in the stomach for a long time without being digested. This may result in heartburn, bloating and other digestive problems. Smaller serving portions are easy to digest, convert into energy and eliminate.

Weight Loss
This benefit is obvious – you consume fewer calories, you lose weight. Losing weight will make your body healthier and more efficient. If you are overweight, losing just 5% of your body weight lessens your risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

Feeling Alert and Energetic
After a big meal, you may feel sluggish, tired and sleepy (think Thanksgiving dinner). All you want to do is go to bed or sit in front of TV. This kind of behavior is normal because your mind is almost shut down, digestive processes take over, and the excess food turns directly into fat. Smaller serving portions, as opposed to large ones, make you feel energetic and are easier to use as energy.

Avoiding Blood Sugar Spikes
Having more meals a day with smaller portions keeps blood sugar levels steady. Keeping blood sugar leveled helps to adjust insulin production and to avoid or minimize the effects of an over-worked pancreas, even in people with normal weight.

Opportunity to Snack. Smaller serving sizes at major meals make it possible to incorporate a couple of snacks in your eating plan. By having more meals, you don’t face long periods between them. It is much easier to wait two hours till your next eating time than five hours.
