Talk:Portion control

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Can someone explain how the phrase, "portion control", as defined here, is either "entirely original to Conservapedia, while others were further developed in an original manner by one or more editors here"? Portion control is a central tenet of many weight loss plans. In fact, googling the phrase comes up with an article on how to implement portion control, a slide show from the Mayo Clinic on portion sizes, a guide from the Dept. of Health and Human Services on portion control, and those are just the first three. While "portion control" is definitely an important dieting concept, I'm not sure it qualifies as a Conservapedia term. --Jareddr 10:03, 7 September 2008 (EDT)

You don't link to anything specific, and I doubt the other sources say what we do. But I'm willing to look into it if you really think something else says the same thing.--Aschlafly 10:08, 7 September 2008 (EDT)
I thought the overwhelming number of results would've shown that portion control is a well-established term. But here are the specific links: article, and another, "Increased Portion Size Leads to Increased Energy Intake in a Restaurant Meal", Mayo Clinic slideshow, HHS, Busting Food Myths from American Diabetes Association, CDC "How to Avoid Portion Size Pitfalls. If you need more, let me know and I'll continue down the list of Google results. --Jareddr 10:16, 7 September 2008 (EDT)

2 PD Omer approach

I'd like to point out that Portion control is very similar to the approach by famed Christian and Conservative Cardiologist Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD. As they say, great minds think alike! In my opinion, Dr. Chung would be an awesome addition to the group of Conservative experts in Conservapedia, as he seems to share our values. Here is his page on weight loss. --LandonD 11:34, 7 September 2008 (EDT)

Re:My edits

First off, I do wish to apologise in advance for my poor spelling, it never has been my strong suite. I would like to contribute to this article, and would like to know what the point of it is before I try again. JakeM 13:04, 7 September 2008 (EDT)

In addition to the spelling, I think your point that "but simply refraining from eating when one is not hungry" misses the point. Your advice is good, but not part of the concept in this entry.--Aschlafly 13:21, 7 September 2008 (EDT)
