Portion amounts are on every product. People prefer not to know or lazy are about it. Weight control is about discipline. Regardless of how you do it, you can lose weight in many ways and what I was trying to make a point about earlier is that some of the information out there makes it more work to lose the weight than it needs to. I took off over 20 lbs in 2 1/2 months with intermittent fasting. It was easy and it was not like I was highly overweight.
Not true. Ever seen nutrition information on bulk products. What if you don't have a scale and purchase fresh meats. Even if you have a scale how many would know the calorie difference between 4 oz of pork loin and 7 oz of sirloin. How do you portion out the pot roast your wife tosses in the crock-pot. Before any of that needs to be addressed someone would have to have an idea of what their daily nutritional needs are, the 2000 cal a day thing is vague and really doesn't work these days. Point is people eyeball portions and it's tough to judge calories based on size when there is no nutritional info.
You are blaming someone else for your food intake? Really all excuses if you are being serious and concerned about you food intake plus if you are eating well everywhere else, one unmeasured meal should be harmless. Eat places where they offer calorie content, tell your wife to make sure to know the nutrition and you don't have to gorge yourself every meal. After eating healthy long enough, I know roughly how much to eat of each food and if it looks or tastes fatty you eat less. They sell digital scales everywhere. To be honest, with my fasting diet I am free to each as much as I feel on most days. That is why I like the fasting diet. No measuring of food except the 2 days of serious fasting.
