This is something new that we've coined at PEERtrainer -- What Is Your Portion Distortion Profile?
Read this short list, watch the video below and then identify what your portion distortion profile is. These are the four basic categories:
1. You distort what a portion size is because you never knew. You didn't pay attention, you just never new.
2. Life has changed on you (you've just had a baby or you've started a new job and your hours have changed): you have moved to a new stage of your life.
3. People who get rid of the processed foods and move to real food, whole grains- but who have a hard time losing weight.
4. People who work out all the time and look at their portions in relation to their workouts.
Share and discuss your portion distortion profile in the PEERtrainer Community:
I grew up in a eat everything on your plate someone is starving in another country world.
Actually I do like to eat small portions, The problem comes in that I want to eat like that several times a day.

So true about the breastfeeding thing, my kids are teenagers and I'm just now getting a handle on my weight again! I've been using an iphone app to log my food and exercise, which has been really great and easy to use. I've been on a plateau for a few weeks, and I'm wondering if you recommend adding the amount of calories used during exercise every day. Sometimes it seems like a lot of extra food?

Combo of 3 and 4. I exercise at least a hour 6 - 7 days a week. I have been focusing on eating healthy and not paying too much attention to portion size. I know at some point I will hit a plateau and need to pay attention to how much of a good thing I can eat.
