  • I can’t believe outdated concepts like this are still around? Over 99% of portion control/calorie restricted diets FAIL. Low carb and fasting get lasting lifetime results, and not just weight loss, but many other health benefits.

  • Thank you, Danika. Love the hand guide, can’t leave home without it!�� The dishes that you presented looked healthy and great ideas. Thank you for your video. Hope you make more videos. ��

  • I eat way too much at the moment. These plates look so small compared to what I eat in a day. This is why I have gained 3 kilos during the last year. I eat delicious and very healthy stuff, only vegan, but the portion sizes slowly became humongous. Portion size creep! And you expressed what I feel and did not dare to admit: eating healthy stuff but overeating at the same time is damaging the body.

  • Today I am going to fight for freedom from food addiction and emotional eating by writing a plan based on 3 meals a day 3 snacks a day every 3 hours freedom is on the plan not chomping randomly I can wait 3 hours till time to stuff my gut again…but in correct portions of course.
