Health and Fitness: Portion Control

You get together with your girlfriends for brunch on Sunday and talk politics, men and weight. We can almost guarantee that happens regularly. Each girl takes a turn to wallow/celebrate and once everyone has taken a stand on the podium, they band together to discuss how/what/why this happened and how to fix it. 

When it comes to weight loss, one of the biggest hardships for both men and women to get over is the ability to monitor what and how much they eat. Dieting and working out come hand-in-hand. Being able to measure out the correct proportions for your respective body type is imperative to getting closer to that body that you've always wanted. We found this great visual for the perfect proportions from Lauren Conrads blog the other day and wanted to share it with you. What do you think?  Does this help? We'd love to hear from you. 


  1. Yikes, this might be the most condescending and misogynistic thing I've seen all day. No, I do not get together for brunch with my girlfriends and lament our given body types. Not all girls have a negative body image and an obsession with losing weight. And some of us are capable of making healthy choices and estimating portion sizes without comparing our food to beauty products. This is messed up on so many levels.

  2. That is a really small portion of pasta. What would be the point of eating it if it's so small.

  4. Anonymous we're sorry we offended you! It was completely unintentional. If you follow our blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts you'd know that we're fierce advocates of self-love, empowerment of women and celebrating and accepting our differences. We were hoping the discussion above would emphasize our intentions on the importance of improving ones lifestyle to become healthier, and we realize that based off of your response we missed the mark on getting that to our readers. We appreciate your feedback and concern and hope that we helped shed a little more light on the piece and why it was published. Thanks so much for voicing your opinion!

    At Seygra20, the ideology behind it is everything in moderation. If you want more pasta, you should absolutely have some. You know your body and what it wants best and you should trust that instinct.

  5. This is cute, creative and fun! Thanks, Seychelles! Anonymous, if this is the most condescending and misogynistic thing you've read this week, you clearly haven't been up to date on current events.

  6. Eating plan always affects the body weight.
    Eating too much will defiantly raise the body fat and leads to obesity.
    Along with eating plan exercise routine is also very important to control the body weight.
