The Power of Portion Sizes

Henry S Lodge, MD posted:
We all know that we feel better if we are at a healthy weight. We move better, have better energy, and better self-esteem. And when it comes to getting to and maintaining a good weight, calorie control is key.

Portion size is the easiest place to make a win here. One very powerful suggestion is simply to get appetizer-size plates and use those for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you have a small enough plate, you can load it full, and you will still be about right on calories.

Studies have shown over and over again that if you have a big plate, you will tend to put more food on it, and it is awfully tough to walk away from an unfinished meal!
