This Holiday Season Enjoy the Parties and the Food and Lose Weight with Lifesize #Giveaway

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could eat anything you want this Thanksgiving and Christmas and still lose weight?  With the Lifesize weight-loss system you can do exactly that.

During the holidays Americans spend a lot of time going to parties and overindulging in high-fat, high-calorie, sugary foods. The average US adult gains 10-20 pounds in the months of November and December. The creators of Lifesize, an easy-to-follow weight loss system believe that you can enjoy your favorite foods during the holidays and still lose weight.  Lifesize took the idea of portion control and ran with it in a brand new way making it the first weight loss program entirely based on portion control.

“The secret to our system is that we designed the perfect portions for ALL the foods we love to eat,” “says Lifesize co-creator, Myles Berkowitz. “The Lifesize portions are big enough to leave people satisfied so they don’t walk around feeling hungry, but they are small enough so that people will lose weight.”

The portions, created by Hollywood trainer, Steven Kates, is based on 20 years of observing the amounts of food people without weight problems ate. I found that these portions are very similar to how much food I eat. My bmi is 19.6 which is well within the normal range.

When Steven was observing how much food people with healthy weights ate he also learned that they were eating whatever they wanted just in smaller portions.  I believe that this may work for those that have been struggling with their weight for years and have tried nearly every diet plan out there.  However, if you have serious health issues like diabetes, or heart disease which may be related to your weight you should also make sure you are eating the right foods.  I recommend using the Lifesize portion control system if you are concerned about your weight but you still want to enjoy your favorite holiday foods this year. Steven’s Lifesize portions are the same for men and women.

In a recent study on Lifesize at Colorado State University, researchers learned that the Lifesize food portions program does work.  The study found that even if someone ate whatever he or she wanted, and ate unlimited fruits and vegetables, which are allowed on the program, following the portion guide (pictured at left), they cut between 400-500 calories a day from their diet and also decreased the amount of food they ate during the day.  In addition to losing weight, the study participants found they lost a significant amount of inches from their waist, hips, thighs, and arms.

This results from this study is enough to have me convinced that if you are serious about losing weight and need to try a different weight loss program, Lifesize just might work for you.

Lifesize comes with a beautiful countertop display with labeled portion controlled measuring cups. The instructions are simple and the display makes it convenient for anyone to use in their kitchen on a daily basis.

Lifesize is available for purchase online at  www.lifesizeportions.com for $79.99 plus shipping and handling. Two Healthy Moms Magazine readers can win the Lifesize portion control weight loss program.  The weight loss program includes:

  • 8 Lifesize measuring devices and a sturdy countertop/wall mountable storage unit
  • The Lifesize Wall Chart
  • The Lifesize Quickstart
  • Two Lifesize DVD’s
  • The Lifesize users manual and reference guide
