Tip #18: Practice Portion Control

15 Sep

If you’re like me, you don’t just eat for the fuel the food gives your body. You love the taste of your food and that keeps you going back for seconds, even if you aren’t hungry anymore. If you are cooking a meal at home, it is a good idea to place a serving of the food on your plate, then immediately put the rest away for leftovers the next day. If it requires more work to get the food back out of the fridge, you are less likely to over eat than if that delicious food is still sitting on the counter when you finish what’s on your plate.

You can also separate the leftovers and store them in single servings. This way, you will be less likely to overeat the next time you get out that food, and it can be an easy lunch to take to work the next day.

    Great suggestion! It helps to take leftovers for lunch at work the next day too.
