It's Monday and time to talk about this week's theme: Portion Control. Ughhhhh! That is something that I struggle with because I do love food... no, that's not totally true. I love GOOD food, which makes it hard to eat what is considered an appropriate portion. It's so easy to go beyond what will leave you feeling satisfied versus feeling stuffed and wishing you wore pants with an elastic waistband.
It's definitely not foolproof, but if the plate size is smaller it is more likely that it will seem more satisfying because it appears you are eating a plate full of food. It's a mind game, but often that smaller plate size is all I need for my meal, then I can enjoy a small sweet of some kind after dinner.
Be sure to check in with the other Eat.Live.Be. bloggers to see how the use portion control to stick to their healthy living goals.
