Nigella Lawson shows how smaller portions can lead to weight loss

Thu, 11 Oct 2012 11:57:18 EST

Nigella Lawson has been showing her Twitter followers that eating smaller portions but still enjoying real food can be a good way for people to lose weight.
 
The TV chef, who is known for her curvy figure, has recently slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 12 and it seems portion control could be the secret to her success. She regularly tweets pictures of her meals to her 227,041 followers and although she tucks into steak, fried egg sandwiches and pizza, she has small portions to prevent her from gaining weight.
 
One picture shows a steak with Bearnaise sauce, accompanied by the caption 'Grabbing lunch out between interviews. You have no idea how much I need this steak!' However, Nigella exercised portion control by only having four chips with her meat. Another tweet shows a lunch consisting of an avocado drizzled with lemon juice.
 
Before she started losing weight last year, Nigella stated in an interview: ''I love food and I love cooking so therefore I never deprive myself.' Therefore it seems as though portion control is just the way you can have your cake and eat it … just less of it!
 
Caron Leckie, Nutritionist from Diet Chef said, 'Bigger portion sizes are a major contributor to being overweight or obese and can also be the demise of our efforts to try and lose weight.  It's very common for us to know 'what' to eat but putting that into practise and getting the portions right can be the biggest challenge'
 
Diet Chef is a calorie and portion-controlled meal plan that's delivered direct to your door, making dieting easy.  Following the Diet Chef plan, means you can enjoy losing weight, teaching yourself portion control all while still enjoying your favourite foods.
 
Dieters are not deprived of their favourite foods, they can still tuck into dishes such as lasagne, curries, macaroni cheese, cottage pie and pasta carbonara – making it easier and more enjoyable to lose weight.
 
Clinical studies show people who followed Diet Chef where their meals were portion controlled and they received a diet food delivery to their home were three times more likely to be successful than if they prepared their own meals. Furthermore, over 60 % of those on Diet Chef lost five per cent or more of their body weight – compared to only 22% of those who went it alone.

Diet Chef carefully counts the calories of all meals so dieters on the plan will be averaging less than 1,200 calories per day. The daily menu allows you to get delicious home delivered food, as well as offering a tasty and varied, healthy balanced plan encouraging dieters to lose weight at a healthy pace.
 
Those on the diet looking to check their own progress can do so using the weight loss calculator as well as sharing their weight loss success stories via the website or Diet Chef social media channels.
