Hi everyone! I so badly want to lose 10kg!! Lost it about 2 years ago on Atkins. Picked it all up again Crying or Very sad Was wondering if portion size will help with weight loss? Like if you don't cut anything out of your diet just control your portion sizes? And avoid sugar?

OYVAY!

eat a mixed healthy diet of protein carbs and fats from a range of healthy foodstuffs, meat eggs fish vegetables fruit

eat some 'treat foods' now and then in moderation and within your caloric deficit

Determine how many calories you should consume each day, burn more no of calories. Eat 5-6 small meals per day, about 2-3 hours apart to keep your metabolism and energy up, cravings down and muscles fed constantly encouraging growth. Do regular exercise and take healthy and balanced diet.

The Atkins Diet worked well for me when I was 15 years younger, but for some reason not now. The South Beach Diet is really doing the trick for me now though. I'm still new at it (1 week now) but have lost a pound a day for the last week. As usual the first few days are hardest, but ... I think this is going to be what I need. My Dr. recommended it.
Yes I agree that counting every item eaten really helps. This site is fantastic for finding your recommended Daily allowances for the amount you want to lose.

The 5 to 6 meals a day metabolism benefit is a myth and makes no difference to weight loss ormuscle

The 5 or 6 small meals do work so your body does not go into starvation mode. If you stay satisfied and not starving, you will not overeat at your next meal. Smaller meals work for many people. You can still eat 3 meals a day, but watch portion size. Have a snack between meals, nuts, yogurt, cottage cheese, fruit, etc.

By eating 5 to 6 small meals per day, you will increase your energy levels, accelerate muscle growth, and speed up your metabolism without storing fat. In fact, frequent eating will actually allow you to eat up to 50% more calories without storing an ounce of it as fat.

Sadly while that was the theory, it has never shown up in the studies.

1 meal, or 6, seems to make little/no difference whatsoever over the course of a day.

If it works for you and your lifestyle fine.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

I think studies have shown a small difference experimentally over a large number of subjects, like a few calories a day, which is smaller than individual differences. It's not enough to change your routine if you've found what works for you.

The answer to the original poster is absolutely. There are lots of people who learn to limit their portions sizes by eyeballing them, using smaller plates, and cutting out snacks and sweets. Look up the "No S Diet".

Well hello there
Just keep on keeping on! Set small attainable goals and once you reach them, set new ones. Progress, no matter how small....is progress! Seems like you are on the right track.
