So today I’m going to reveal a very simple and clinically proven way for you to lose weight and STILL eat all the same foods you’re currently eating. This means NO change in your diet, exercise plan or taking pills or powders.
And I’ll start with an interesting story about a friend of mine who had gained 23 lbs of fat in about 10 months… and how he lost it all in 3 months with ONE simple change.
So to continue with my story…
I have a friend who has done really well in real estate over the past 2-3 years. A few months ago he invited me over to dinner at one of his newest homes in Malibu, right on the beach. I hadn’t seen him in almost a year. The home was amazing… However, what I noticed immediately was how much weight he had gained.
Anyway, I asked him about it and this was something he wanted to talk about. I asked him what changes had he made?… diet, exercise, medications, stress, etc.?
He said “I swear to you, I’ve done nothing different! In fact, I’m eating most of my meals at home these days, so I can make sure the food is healthy.”
Anyway, as we sat down to eat, I quickly noticed how large the plates were. The spoons, forks, etc… were all super big.
As he was serving the food, he just kept piling it on on the plate… more and more. However, on this huge plate, it looked just fine. It didn’t seem like a lot of food. There was plenty of room. I served my usual portion size. But in all honesty, it looked odd on the plate. There was way too much space. I sat down, started eating and he then quickly asked “hey, don’t you like the food?”
I said “yeah, of course… it all looks delicious”
He then said “but you barely put any food on your plate”.
I thought to myself for a second “hmm… he’s right, it does LOOK like that … even though it’s my usual portion size”And then it hit me… It only looks like a “little bit of food” because these are GIANT plates!
So that’s when it dawned on me…That the reason my friend has been gaining weight, is because the bigger the plate size, the bigger the portion sizes and the more food on the plate.
And I don’t know about you, but growing up, most of us were told to just eat everything on our plates. I told this to my friend and he said “yeah, I eat everything on my plate – no matter how much food. We grew up broke, so I don’t like to waste food.”
So this is when I told him to just get smaller plates and I bet he’ll lose weight because he’ll be eating less food. He replied back and said “but I have all of these new, expensive, big plates… now you want me to get smaller ones?” And that’s when I said “yes because even though you said you had made no changes, YOU DID… these big new plates are making you fat!”
I said “just do a me a favor and use plates that are half the size of these for the next 3 months”.
Well, about 4 months later he sent a text saying he had lost about 25 lbs and he didn’t change anything at all, other than using the smaller plates, bowls and cups.
Smaller plates = smaller portion sizes = smaller calories.
And by the way, this is clinically proven by the Journal of Consumer Research.
They examined 56 different research studies on the effects of smaller plates on consumption. They tested everything — breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, etc. Type of plates, bowls, cups, etc.
The end result showed that reducing the size of the plate, bowl or cup by 30%, reduced consumption by 30%
Less food = less calories = faster weight loss!
Now, something to take into consideration here is that genetics and psychology plays a big role in how much you weigh .
And this is why when people are under extra stress, some eat more food (“stress eaters”) and gain weight …. and some people simply lose their appetite and thus, lose weight.
My brother eats more food, while I eat less when I’m stressed.
Genetics plays a big role here.
Personally, I think this is fascinating and because of this, I have a bonus video about how you can turn ON your “fat burning genes”. Just click the link below and watch the short video right now. Copy the proven formula and lose that unhealthy and ugly body fat.
