3. Change Your Plates
If your idea of portion control is filling your plate (or Tupperware box or take out box) to the brim with food that’s fine. No really, keep doing that especially if seeing that plate full of food is as satisfying to your cravings and hunger as it is to your eyes. All you need to do is shrink your plates. Choose a dessert plate or a salad plate instead of a dinner plate and load up. Grab a 4 x4 styrofoam box and fill it up as much as you want. This will help you lose weight while still giving you that feeling of having a full plate of food.
4. Remove Temptation
If you cook your meals at home and often find yourself going back for seconds, just remove that temptation. Once you have served all the meals, get out your containers and pack away the leftovers. Put them in the fridge. Not only are they out of sight but they will be too cold to be appetizing. This simple tip can really make a difference over time.
