EPISODE 158: Portion Control vs Hunger Directed Eating

Portion sizes have increased over the years, and food is more convenient than ever.

And when our environment is filled with an abundance of food, it can be hard to say no, especially for a dieter who feels restricted and deprived.

In a 2015 review of 72 studies published by the Cochrane Library, it says, “Research consistently shows that when we’re presented with a big portion, we eat more—even when we are not hungry.”

It’s a simple but effective strategy: Serve yourself less food and you’ll eat less, and lose weight as a result. 

Sounds simple enough, right? But reducing portions is only one piece of the puzzle.

Join coach, Laura Kalirai, and myself on today’s episode of the Fat Murder Podcast as we dig into the psychological differences between portion control and hunger directed eating.

Any ideas on what they may be?
