Recently, I started following the program which Dr. Eric Berg recommends. I had been doing various sorts of clean eating all along for decades but this focuses on how much to eat, not based on some type of weight loss plan, but rather to meet your nutritional needs these days with the soil and plants so depleted. I also do intermittent fasting (IF) so on the days I am fasting and not eating until dinner (having fasted from dinner the previous night) I eat a 7 to 10 cup salad in order to get all the nutrition I need, in addition to protein source of choice and enough health fats to keep me going to the next meal.

In a month I've lost about 10 lbs and 20 inches!

I think if you're used to eating large amounts of foods and don't want to change that, then the best thing is eating veggies. You can eat a lot for very few calories and most are full of vitamins and minerals the body needs.

My husband and I started the Atkins Diet. We can't eat all the food they allow in a day and we are losing weight. And believe me we are known to have large portions and make poor choices in the past. That is why we are now on a diet! LOL!

Yes, You Can Eat Large Portions and Still Lose Weight — Here's How

Ask any weight-loss expert and they'll tell you shedding pounds requires deprivation

Eat less food by putting less on your plate, and eventually, you'll lose weight. That may just be a fallacy, according to a new study. The results suggest you can eat as much as you want -- as long as you're smart about it.

Researchers at Penn State served volunteers meals of varying sizes and measured how much of each meal they polished off. As the researchers expected, people who got more on their plate ate more food than they would normally; for instance, a 75 per cent increase in the portion size led the volunteers to eat an average of 27 per cent more calories.

The Science Behind Calories and Weight Loss (And Weight Gain)

However, a third of the study participants had been part of a year-long weight loss trial in which they had been taught to make healthier food choices. While this group was just as likely to overeat when faced with larger portions, they tended to eat more of the healthy, lower-calorie foods on their plate; as a result, they still took in fewer calories than people who made poorer decisions about what they ate.

'If you choose high-calorie-dense foods but restrict the amount that you're eating, portions will be too small, and you're likely to get hungry,' says Faris Zuraikat, a graduate student and one of the study authors. The findings indicate that by filling up on low-calorie foods like vegetables and lean meats like chicken and fish, you can lose weight while still eating plenty.

'The study supports the idea that eating less of the higher-calorie-dense foods and more of the nutritious, lower-calorie-dense foods can help to manage hunger while consuming fewer calories,' explained Barbara Rolls, professor and the Helen A. Guthrie Chair of Nutritional Sciences, Penn State. 'You still have a full plate, but you're changing the proportions of the different types of foods.'
