Take the guesswork out of portion control with these 5 easy, healthy dinner recipes.
It’s probably safe to say that we’ve all gotten the message that portion control is a path to weight control. According to research in the last few years, people who ate two portion-controlled meals a day lost about five pounds more than people who ate the same number of calories but had to figure out their own portion sizes. Well, sure—I’d find it a lot easier to eat exactly the right amount of every dish at every meal if only I knew what "just the right amount" was. That’s when I turn to these "smart dinners" for help: with well-defined single-serve portions built right in, they take the guesswork out of the equation so I can feel in control.
