More than a handful

Benelam continues, "While the types of

different food and drinks we need apply

to all healthy adults, we understand that

no two individuals are the same and the

amount of food we need varies from

person to person. If you're tall or very

active you may need more and could

have larger portions, and if you have a

slighter build or are trying to lose weight,

you may need smaller portions."

Carbs and cals

Within the protein foods and starchy

carbohydrates food groups, the BNF has

broken down portion sizes into different

categories to reflect portions that are

200kcal or more, less than 200kcal, and

lighter snack-sized portions. This reflects

the variety of foods in these groups

and whether they would be eaten as a

main meal or something lighter, allowing

people to choose the portion sizes most

appropriate for them. Those with higher

calorie needs could have more of the

foods that are 200kcal or more, and

for people with lower calorie needs, or

trying to lose weight, could choose more

options under 200kcal.

Dairy foods are separated into those

that are lower or higher fat ('low' or

'medium' for fat on a food label, versus

those that would be labelled 'high' for

fat) - it is recommended that we should

go for those in the lower category most

of the time. When it comes to fruit and

vegetables, the key message is just to

eat more! Example portions are given

but, provided fat and sugar aren't added,

you can have big portions of most fruit

and vegetables for relatively few calories

so, within reason, you don't need to limit

portion sizes of these.

When it comes to unsaturated oils

and spreads, these are healthier fats and

we should be replacing saturated with

unsaturated fats. However, all fats and oils

are high in calories keep portions smaller.

Suzy Wengel is a nutritional advisor, lecturer, scientific researcher and director of

the biotech company RiboTask, developed the Scandi Sense Diet to overcome

her own weight gain, and it enabled

her to lose it and keep it off. Her book,

The Scandi Sense Diet, helps you to

cut calories without counting them

based on the principle of four handfuls

of food per meal: one of protein, one of

carbohydrate and two of vegetables,

plus a spoonful of fat. Other than that

you decide the ingredients. Central to

this is measuring portions by hand - a

portion being a handful. As it is your

hand, it should be in proportion to your

dietary and energy needs.
