When it comes to starting a new health and fitness routine PORTION SIZES are SO SO SO SO important. You have to be able to know what is the right amount to have with each meal so you are not over eating. Over eating will cancel out the hard workout you have that day! The key to losing those unwanted calories is working off MORE calories than you are consuming.
DO NOT starve yourself! Find healthy LOW CALORIE snacks you can have during the day to help you stop those hunger feelings and to get you to your next meal.
Here is a guide i found online…hope that it is helpful with helping you decide you portion sizes when preparing you meals
The goal to reaching your fitness goals is to set some goals, stick to them, stay focused, and work hard! Hard work will pay off! Passing on that key lime pie you like to have for dessert and having a bowl of fruit will help you to obtain those health and fitness goals you set for yourself. It is OK to treat your some sometimes but not ALL the time. Be mindful of the things you are putting in your body.
