Portion control made simple.[gap]
The reality is not many people have the luxury of time, we live in a fast paced world and figuring out your food intake shouldn’t add to the anxieties already on your plate.
With this in mind, we have come up with a simple enough method to control your meal portions without the need for scales, cups or complicated formulas.
SupaTrophy makes use of the Hand Diet method in terms of measurable simplicity, while the food choices are made up through a combination of the Zone and Paleo diets for their promotion of eating as close to source as possible.
Here how the portions work:
PROTEIN: The palm your hand is one.
FAT: Your thumb is one.
HIGH-CARB: Your cupped hand is one.
LOW-CARB: Your fist is one.
Men are recommended to consume two of each protein, fat, high-carb and low-carb portions per meal. Feed between 3 – 5 times a day depending on your goals.
Women are recommended to consume one of each protein, fat, high-carb and low-carb portions per meal. Feed between 3 – 5 times a day depending on your goals.
As with any other form of nutrition planning, this serves as a starting point. You won’t know exactly how your body will respond in advance; stay flexible and adjust your portions based on your hunger, fullness, and performance or weight goals. If needed, we recommend scaling up a half portion at a time and monitoring the change.
