Restaurants supersize our plates and sometimes it can happen at home too. Try to remember some basic control tips so your one serving doesn't turn into a Godzilla size portion. The Mayo Clinic makes the following recommendations to control your portion sizes.
Dr. Lisa Young is a nationally recognized nutritionist and author of the Portion Teller Plan, and she recently did an article for the Huffington Post where she gives these 5 tricks to not things get out of control:
- Choose the smallest size available
- Steer clear of bulk sizes, at least when it comes to food. (Don't get the 50 count of Famous Amos and muffins at Costco)
- Mind your plate size
- Eat with your stomach, not your eyes
- Fill up on fruits and veggies
