Posted by Ju'Nae Fit on

Oftentimes, people think you need to eat salads all day in order to be “fit”, but that’s completely FALSE 🙅🏿‍♀️You should take pride in maintaining a well balanced diet 🍽 which should consist of protein, healthy fats 🥑, good carbs, and veggies. In this blog post, we have provided some recipes for you guys to try as well as tips on portion control.

Portion control is very important! Here's why:

1. Portion control trains your stomach to shrink in size thus preventing over eating and binge eating.

2. Portion control forces your body to digest food easily because it's no longer working twice as hard to digest larger amounts of food.

3. Through portion control, you're forced to eat less because you feel full faster. This feeling of satiety (state of fullness) is initiated much quicker upon eating.
