Success in losing weight requires a balance of proper food choices, eating a more natural clean eating diet, in conjunction with cardio and weight-bearing exercise training.
One way to ensure quicker success with the eating aspects are portion control. It's proper weight and size portioning.
Try a digital weight scale or a plate that pre-measures the area that should be filled with veggies (50% of the plate), appropriate protein portion and high quality carbs.
Another idea is to try using a salad plate vs. a dinner plate. The eyes' view of how 'full' your plate is can affect your stomach's fullness feeling. Having a glass of water 30 minutes before a mmeal can help, as well as putting your fork down between bites. Slow the whole process of eating down. Make it more of an event (at a table, with silverware...). Enjoy!
