Portion control is crucial if you’re trying to lose pounds.

Maintaining the amount you eat is crucial whether you’re trying to drop pounds, consume a balanced diet or maintain a healthy weight, says Serena Poon, a nutritionist and celebrity chef based in Santa Monica, California. She’s also the founder of Just Add Water, a wellness line of super nutrient foods and supplements.

“Understanding portion sizes is a key to eating a balanced diet,” Poon says.

Depending on your age, gender and physical activity level, many nutrition experts recommend a daily macronutrient breakdown in this range:

  • Carbohydrates: 45%-65%.
  • Protein: 10%-35%.
  • Fat: 20%-30%.
