Katie918: I am in the same boat as you. I was at 160, dropped 15 lbs so far, and have another 10-15 lbs to go before the wedding in August. You should be looking at the calorie count in your food, which keeping portion size in mind. I am sticking to a 1200 calorie per day diet through Jenny Craig which monitors portions but when it comes down to it it is all a math game.  If you wanted to you could eat a salad with 3 heads of lettuce and 2 tablespoons of dressing and eat less calories than are in a donut.

Katie918:  The problem is that it vares from person to person based on age, size proportions, physical activity, occupation, possible health problems or special dietary needs…

Once you figure out a person’s specifics, then you have to look at what they weigh now, what their healthy weight range is, and what their goal weight is. THEN the portion sizes and such come into play. This is why weight loss places make so much money. They can tell you all these things and also keep you accountable. Portions vary from food types and also within the food types. It’s all pretty complicated!
