Portion control is an essential aid to losing or controlling weight for those of us who wish to better manage our PCOS symptoms.
But it’s just not practical, let alone desirable, to have to whip out a measuring cup whenever and wherever you eat. So how can you dish up a meal that’s balanced and just the right size?
Try this trick: divide your dinner plate, filling one half with vegetables and splitting the other half into two quarters. Fill one quarter with lean protein, such as fish, skinless poultry, beans or tofu.
Then fill the other quarter with a grain or starch-based side dish, preferably a whole-grain food, like brown rice, whole-wheat pasta or a slice of whole-grain bread.
You’ll be surprised how soon portion control becomes second nature when using this method.
