One of the biggest problems people struggle with when it comes to losing weight and eating healthy is portion control. We always wanna go back for that second plate and buffets are the worst thing that ever happened to us! LOL. If you pay attention and try your hardest you can really work on portion control and it will extremely effect your look and health!
1. Use smaller plates. If you use a smaller plate it will appear that you have more food on your plate and your mind will believe that after your one plate, you’re full. You won’t need to eat extra food or go back for seconds. It’s smart to use a salad or side dish plate for your main meal rather than a big huge plate, that is just more room for you to fill up your plate with unhealthy foods!
2. Portion out snacks ahead of time. When it comes to snacks such as chips, pretzels, or cheez its get small snack baggies and portion them ahead of time according the proper serving size on the nutrition facts rather than eating from the bag or box! This will save you so many calories and leave you feeling satisfied without breaking your diet! I’ve found doing this and writing the calories of that portion on the baggy really helps with not eating so many salty, unhealthy snacks!
