Day 9: Pay Attention to Portions


Day 9: Pay Attention to Portions Blog Post

You’re reaching for healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins, but that doesn’t give you license to eat as much as you want. The calories can really add up, so watch your portions. A 1-teaspoon pour of olive oil is 40 calories, while 1 tablespoon is 120 calories. 3 ounces of chicken breast is 100 calories, but most breasts at the store are upwards of 8-10 ounces, so you could easily be consuming an extra 150-250 calories. One-third cup of oatmeal has 100 calories, but a half cup has 150. One ounce of almonds has 165 calories; 2 ounces, 330 calories.
