    3 Strategies to Maximize Weight Loss Through Portion Control

    Most diets focus on restricting your eating by cutting out things like refined sugars, carbohydrates, fat content, etc. And while reducing your intake of those things can aid in weight loss*, the constant restriction can also make it more challenging to stay dedicated and consistent.

    Applying some simple routine tips to your meal portion control can go a long way toward helping you reach your goals!
