THIS is how I LOST my mom gut!!! These containers taught me what I needed to know about eating for HEALTH! Learn more about our fitness community here ...

hi my name is Aaron and I have been in

health and fitness for over 10 years and believe me when I say I have tried it all literally I have tried it all even through college and after college and after babies I have tried every nutrition plan you can think of fad diet whatever and then I finally learned how to eat healthy and that was my key my mind shift changed from let's be skinny to how do I take care of myself and how do I take care of my body and that is why I'm so obsessed with these little portion fixed controlled containers and that's what I want to tell you about today because this was a game-changer for me for my nutrition like I said I have done Weight Watchers I have done my fitness pal and all those fad diets and nothing works for me like these did and it was the easiest simplest way to track my food and to know what it is I needed to have every day so let me explain a little bit about how these containers work every container is color-coded to a certain food group so you've got your green veggies and this is the size and your purple fruits your red is your proteins your yellow is your healthy carbs or blue is your healthy fats and

your orange are your seeds and your dressings now the great thing about this is not only do you get these containers but you'll get a full nutrition guide that tells you exactly how many of each container you should have in a day and what foods go in the containers that is critical because you're not just eating one of these every day you're eating multiples so for example for me I eat three of these green containers a day and two fruit three proteins a healthy fat two carbs and season oils all right so the nice thing about this this is what's awesome because I would have considered myself a picky eater but what's great is I can have this green container three times in a day three times I choose what foods on that green list I put in here and I choose when I eat them okay I thought that was huge for me so depending on out your lifestyle you can pick which fruits you have and when you have them throughout the day so you're really in control of what you're eating and when you're eating it now I recommend that you eat every three to four hours for your metabolism but what's nice is that you have the freedom

to choose so for example it makes it very easy to go out to dinner because I will know by the end of the day how many containers I have left usually I will need to have a protein my carbs and a vegetable so when I go out to dinner at a restaurant I know my plate needs to have a protein a vegetable and I can have a carb how easy is that to pick something at a restaurant the other nice thing that I love about this is the app there is an app to track all this so when you have breakfast lunch dinner and a snack you easily go in and pick a green container a purple container and mark it off and it will show you exactly what else you need to have so when snack time I can open up my app and see exactly okay for my snack I need to get a fruit in and I need to get in a healthy fat how simple and then I go to the food list which is also on the app and I can look and see exactly what my options are for that snack it's made it so easy for me to now go throughout my day making sure I'm getting in the rights of the right amount of proteins fruits vegetables healthy fats healthy carbs in a day to make my body healthy and guess what when you're healthy your

body will naturally drop the unneeded unwanted fat that you have so that's why I love these portion fix containers they've helped me tremendously I still follow them to this day because it's what makes me healthy today I want to show you exactly how these portion control containers work when I first saw these containers I they were small I thought there's no way I'm going to be full eating on this kind of system now granted you get more than one of these in a day and that whole plan is laid out for you tells you exactly how many containers you should be having but I wanted to just show you how much food actually fits in these containers even though they look really small so I'm going to take an example from my everyday life when I first started with these portion fixed containers one of the things I ate almost every day for lunch is a salad and I wanted to see how my salads stacked up to these containers and how much it really fit I thought for sure that just the salad alone my spring mix that I use would be three green containers I thought dude I'm gonna be so good on my veggies right well I'm

going to I put all my food in these containers and I'm going to show you exactly how much it fills my salad bowl so again like I said I do spring mix lettuce so I put a bunch of spring mix lettuce in the my green container this is your veggie container and I packed it full if you can see there I packed it full I pushed it down right and I could actually probably fit in a little bit more if I wanted to but let me show you how much this fills now I got to pull it all out hold on so I packed it in there so much but one green veggie container feels that much sad look at how much salad is in my bowl I was shocked okay so that's one green then what I do is I also put in colored peppers and cut carrots so I'm just gonna put some in my green container again and I already have these pre-cut up and that's what I would recommend during the week is have this stuff pre-cut up and there I have probably a little more than half in there okay but not a full cup and I'm going to pour that on oops pour that on my sand list so you can see how much that put on right there so yeah I recommend pre-cutting your vegetables for the week it makes it super easy or I

have a friend who actually puts together a huge bowl of salad for the week and then just pulls it out and puts it in a bowl every so it's another hit too so I have a green of my salad and then another almost 3/4 of a green for my carrots and my peppers and now my strawberries my fruit okay this is not quite half I could probably add a little bit more but honestly I just ran out of strawberries so I usually probably put a full half of the fruit in but right now that's just a little less than half so my strawberries blueberries are also really great on salad so sometimes I'll do blueberries and strawberries and keep it to about a half of a fruit container then my protein protein I like I love chicken especially grilled chicken in the summer so this is my protein container again not quite full all the way but a little more than half put my chicken on look at that okay not quite done yet then my favorite your healthy fat this is my avocado I love avocado so avocados healthy fat and I can pour that on mm-hmm and then smooth it around right to make it look pretty for you okay and so there is my

salad how awesome is that I mean that's a ton of stuff so when people get these containers you don't really eat out of the containers right you put your food in the container measure it out and put it together in a bowl or on your plate depending on what it is that you're having and so for the first like two to three weeks I measured out everything in these containers but now since I have an idea of what it should look like I can pretty much ballpark this and I don't have to measure everything out all the time but this salad right here contained 1 and 3/4 of a green container I have 1/2 of a fruit about 3/4 of my protein I had my healthy fat okay and I did not use any carbs but you do get a carb container as well so I didn't use this and I was actually surprised how much pasta would actually fit in this container so that's something that and then my salad dressing this is my favorite salad dressing by far and I know that for me it's local so I'm not sure if you can find it it's called garlic expressions what I love about it is there's like less than five ingredients and I'm all I'm good with all of them and this would be my seeds

and dressings container each container is a tablespoon I do not measure my dressing in this I just get out my tablespoon and I do measure my salad dressing every day otherwise it gets to be way too much salad dressing but I measure it in here I put two tablespoons of my garlic expressions on and I'm good to go for lunch so I hope this video explained a little bit so you could actually see how much food fits in these containers and how much you'll actually get in fact I will tell you I've worked with hundreds of people and when they first start the portion fix usually they tell me they cannot eat all the food that they're required to eat so just keep that in mind and give it a shot really plug in for two to three weeks using the containers measuring everything and then a lot of what you eat probably becomes habit and then you don't have to measure it anymore but you will understand how to track this and knowing how many fruits how many veggies how many proteins healthy fats carbs that you should be having in a day to make your body healthy so make sure if you have any questions at all either comment
