Why Your Portion Sizes Maybe Keeping You Fat! (Plus My Vacation Photos From Tenerife).

Hey there,

How we all doing? I haven't written here in a while as I've been on vacation with my girlfriend Christie and only got back this week.

We both had an awesome time in Tenerife, lots of rest, recovery and regeneration and plenty of sunshine for the later part of the vacation which we were both happy about. Whilst we were there we managed to explore the famous Mount Teide volcano in the heart of the island. we also enjoyed a great boat trip where we saw some whales swimming real close to the boat.

Here are some of the pics I took whilst up Mount Teide and on the boat trip:

Mount Teide is the world's third biggest volcano at an altitude of 2,300 metres. It's also the highest point in Spain.

Our cattamerang trip saw us explore the west side of Tenerife during which time we saw a few whales that came up to the boat to do a bit of exploring themselves which was awesome!

I've never seen whales in the wild before so I was real happy that they came so close to the boat and that Christie & I could get some cool pics.

Anyway, I don't want to bore you too much with my holiday adventures but I DID want to talk to you about something I noticed in our hotel dining area every evening.

Something that most diners were doing that shocked me.

Something that will seriously put a BIG HAULT to your fat loss progress

..And this was PORTION SIZES

I couldn't believe how much food people were piling on their plate!

I'm guessing most of the guests staying at the hotel were 'all-inclusive' because ALL of them seemed to want to get their money's worth when it came to dining.

Don't get me wrong, I don't have an issue with people relaxing on their diet slightly when they go on vacation but piling plates and cutting half a loaf of bread for yourself seems somewhat greedy.

It was almost as if just because the food was there infront of them...they HAD to eat it!

You need to go EASY with the portion sizes when it comes to fat loss.

It doesn't matter whether you're on vacation, eating out or preparing something at home, you need to look at your portion sizes.

You can eat the healthiest food on this planet, and the best fat loss workouts money can buy yet you'll STILL put weight on if you're not thinking about how MUCH you're eating.

Any food is calories at the end of the day.

Make sure you're eating little and often. This will help to spread out your calories throughout the day instead of consuming most of your daily calories at the end of the day.

OK, rant over, just wanted to share that with you.

Here are some more pics from the holiday. And if you want to see ALL of the pics then make sure you check them out on my facebook page.

Peace out, and I'll talk to you again real soon...
