What Everyone Needs to Know About Portion Control

We tend to dump food on our plates and zone out in front of the TV or our computers. InsteadPortion Control of taking away our favorite foods, how about we became aware of the “correct” portion size and only ate that amount?
Portion plates are a great tool in helping people learn portion sizes. I suggest you purchase one of these so you have a visual of a healthy plate. If you use these plates for around 3 weeks, you will learn what a portion size looks like for each food group and after that you should be able to put the plate away and eyeball the portions on your own.
Reading food labels on cereals, rice, pasta, cookies, chips, etc. is also very important. Measuring cups left on the counter as a reminder will help you in learning the correct portion sizes for your favorite foods.
