Here are a few techniques you can use to keep your portions under control.
- If you’re at home, use smaller plates. This creates the illusion of eating a bigger serving.
- If you’re at a restaurant and you know the portions are going to be huge, ask the server to put half your meal in a doggie bag before it even hits the table. This saves you money as well as unnecessary calorie overload.
- Share an entrée with your dining partner.
- Make a new rule for yourself: Always leave something on your plate. This reminds you that you are in control of the food, not the other way around. A little bit of empowerment can go a long way!
