Nutrition expert Paula Norris shows that you can lose weight without starvation, complicated concepts or counting calories. There is this simple trick behind this.
As nutrition expert Paula Norris proves, losing weight doesn’t always have to be the most creative diet. She swears by a light concept that aims at simply saving calories by rethinking the composition of the dish. The best thing about it: You don’t have to do without anything! You can find out what exactly is behind this below.
Nutrition expert Paula Norris lets over 100,000 followers share her tips about losing weight and healthy eating on her Instagram account “movingdietitian”. Her rubric “spot the difference” which means something like “recognize the difference” is particularly successful. In doing so, she compares the calorie intake of almost identical-looking plates. The only difference is in the proportions of the individual ingredients.
The proportions of the ingredients make the difference
Using the example of a vegetable pan with rice and chicken, she makes it clear what fine details can make big differences: Half a cup more rice and 100 grams more chicken as well as an additional teaspoon of olive oil and a little honey for sweetening add 250 kilocalories. Instead, she uses 150 grams more vegetables for the lower-calorie variant. In principle, that is the key to customer success, which happens almost on the side.
0.2 kilos of body fat less per week
As the online magazine “fitforfun” reported, according to Paula Norris, such a calorie difference leads in the long term to the fact that you can lose around 0.2 kilos of body fat per week. It would the nutrition expert says she never counts calories herself. “That drives me crazy!” She writes under a post. But she has a rough idea of how to make filling meals without consuming too many calories. “You have to try to understand the calorie density of foods if you want to actively influence your weight. But every single gram is not important.”
