Weight loss tip #15


TIP: CONTROL YOUR PORTION SIZES



With the introduction of "super-size" meals at fast food places, and increasingly huge portions at restaurants, our concept of normal serving sizes is fast becoming a distant memory. I even think that plates and bowls seem to have doubled in size over the last few years. Sticking to these few simple rules will avoid you unconciously eating far more than your body needs.

1.Be mindful of the amounts of food you are eating in one sitting.
2.When you are eating out, divide your food in half and ask for a take home bag.
3.When you are at home, use a smaller sized plate, a bread and butter plate is a great serving size
for people trying to limit their calorie intake.
4. Dont get in the habit of finishing everything on you plate.
5.Eat slowly and pay attention to your hunger levels, and stop eating when you feel comfortably full, not stuffed.

  1. That is such a clever idea about dividing your resturant meal in half - then you can enjoy it twice! (LOL)

  3. I'm always last to finish. Always have been. My hubby is a speed eater though.
    Don't forget wine glass sizes though. Each size has jumped up to the next size of glass.
