Nutritionist and biotech CEO Suzy Wengel credits her hands for helping her lose weight. She is the creator of the Scandi Sense Diet, a new way to consume food that may complement your Phentermine 37.5mg regimen. Take a moment to learn more about this weight loss method to determine if it’s right for your needs.
Using The Hands To Control Portion Size
“I used food to deal with my emotions,” Wengel, told TODAY. “I had a difficult time identifying when I was hungry, and I never felt [full]. I ate normally in the presence of others, but consumed huge amounts of food when on my own. I felt embarrassment and shame, guilt and disgust with myself and had a very negative body image.”
Wengel weighed 220 pounds at her heaviest but dropped 88 pounds over a 9-month period in 2011 and 2012 and kept it off. She uses her hands to control how much healthy fat, protein, and carbohydrates she eats at every meal.
Her Diet Rules
The nutritionist’s diet rules include eating three meals a day without snacking, as each meal should keep you satiated for five or six hours. This schedule is especially important during the first two weeks of the program. Measure portions with your hands, such as one or two handfuls of vegetables with one handful each of protein and carbs. The diet also allows up to three tablespoons each of fat such as butter or olive oil.
“If you lose weight, your handful sizes are OK,” she says. “If you gain weight — and you want to lose weight — you will have to reduce your handfuls or opt for less fat.”
Wengel also recommends exercising at least 30 minutes daily to help with weight loss and your overall health.
