Did you know that most restaurants serve portions that are 2x bigger than we should be eating? Sometimes they serve even more!
You also may be likely to eat too much at home, too, where snacks can be just too easy to reach for.
It is time to control those portions.
It is time to make sure you’re eating just enough – and not too much.
In A Restaurant
When you’re out eating at a restaurant, ask your server to bring you only one half of your entrée, and to package the rest up to take home. That way, you can eat everything on your plate, feel satisfied – and you’ve only eaten the correct portion!

When you’re eating at home, serve yourself in the kitchen. Do not bring the entrée to the table, where you’re likely to carelessly reach for a second…or third…or fourth serving.
You may also want to invest in a kitchen scale, too. If you diligently portion out your meals for 2-3 weeks, you’ll be much better at being able to eyeball the right amount later on. Practice makes perfect! Read those labels, too.
Portion Control Your Snacks
If you like to enjoy a snack or two as mini meals, make sure they are the right portions, too. Instead of eating snacks straight from the container, portion them out into plastic baggies or your Tupperware containers.
Do you have any quick tips for perfect portion control?
To your health,
