Thursday May 22nd Quick Tip

Use a smaller plate. Yep, that's it. Use a smaller plate when you are at home eating your food and you will eat less. If you have a smaller plate it does double duty. One, it will force you to not put as much food on your plate as you would with a larger plate. Two, your plate is smaller thereby giving you that illusion that there is more food on your plate than there really is tricking your mind into thinking that you have enough.

I am not sure how well this one works for me, but it makes sense either way. If nothing else give it a try and if it works for you then keep at it. If it doesn't work, well then you can chalk it up to your list of "you have tried everything".

Yes I agree. Portion control is one of the key factors for a healthy sensible diet. I find it better to eat 5 or 6 small meals evenly spread throughout the day. You will be overall less hungry and less likely to binge. But the biggest plus for me is that by having these small meals, I seem to have the willpower to keep from eating junk. You must make sure of course that you have good healthy nutritional food available. Great post. Take care.
