What should portion sizes look like for a teenage girl?
14 years old, 149 pounds, 5'3". I want to lose fat around my belly and legs. I need to get lighter for running as well.
For breakfast I've been having 3 eggs and 2 slices of bacon + 35g of butter (which I'm thinking is too much?)
Lunch is a salad, which isn't huge. 1 salmon fillet with 6 or 7 nuts and some lettuce and leaf things. :P
Dinner is a cut of meat (not usually fatty and not very big) and some steamed veggies. The meat would probably be palm sized.
Then I usually have a bowl of fruit. Strawberries and blueberries and around 5 tea spoons of Greek yoghurt.
I've been doing this for around two weeks now. I'm not sure about satiety signals, because if i'm not hungry for lunch I can't just leave it and eat it at, say, 3:00PM. I'd get some weird looks if I was in class. And some days I'm hungrier than others. But does this look like too much food for weight loss? I will also start HIIT in the form of running when I clear my cold.
I'm scared that I eat as much as men haha.
