    What is Reverse Dieting? Portion Distortion and the Best Dressings for Your Salads this Summer

    What is Reverse Dieting? Portion Distortion and the Best Dressings for Your Salads this Summer

    From Susie and Leanne on The Nutrition Couch this episode:

    We discuss portion sizes and the problem of "portion distortion". Because knowing how much we should be eating from a packet, or a cut of meat, is incredibly confusing.

    Our 'Client Case Study' is all around the concept of "reverse dieting", i.e. gradually adjusting your calorie intake over time as a way to increase your metabolic rate and slowly teach your body to become more effective at burning calories after a period of dieting or calorie restriction.

    And finally, our 'Listener Question of the Week' is on salad dressings: which are the best options and the ones to avoid? 


    So sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode! 
    Tune in on Wednesday for our next episode road-testing 2 common supermarket products.
