Nutritionist Reveals the Secret of How to Eat to Your Heart’s Content and Not Gain Weight

You should start your meal with vegetables and proteins that satiate well, and then move on to high-calorie foods. Indian nutritionist Nancy Dehra shared a simple tip for those who want to lose weight, which allows you to eat to your heart’s content.

According to her, in an attempt to lose weight, many people skip meals and limit themselves to certain foods, but this way is not effective and can lead to health problems.

Instead of dieting, Dehra suggests practicing portion control. She advises filling two-thirds of the plate with protein-rich foods, vegetables, and salad, and the rest with “your favorite carbohydrates.”

You should start a meal with vegetables and proteins that satiate well, and then move on to high-calorie foods, which are reserved for the last third of the plate. With this method, a person stops overeating and imperceptibly reduces the total calorie content of the portion.

“This method is effortless, convenient, and provides variety,” said Dehra.

She explained that most people tend to eat carbohydrate-rich foods first, get full quickly, and don’t get enough protein and fat.
