Why is Portion Control So Important?

We’ve all been guilty of sneaking a few more biscuits than we really should, and if something like this is just a one off, it shouldn’t affect us too much.

 

However, if we regularly eat large portions, it means that we’re consuming more calories than we should be, which can lead to weight gain over time.

A lot of the time, you’ll need to reduce your calorie intake to lose weight.

 

If you want to lose a pound a week, you’ll usually need to reduce your caloric intake by around 500 calories every day or 3,500 a week.

 

We’re here to explain how much you might expect to reduce by each day and how to safely reduce your calorie intake.
