Hey, I'm Keri Glassman here with some quick and simple tips to help you feel just a little
bit better. There are many reasons we overeat. One of the most common being oversized portions.
Portion control is not just about forcing yourself to stop eating at a certain point.
If it were that easy, we would all just stop eating. But there are some effective ways
to ensure you don't overeat. Most people think about how much they have eaten after the meal
is over -- plan ahead! When you cook at home, cook only the amount you need for one serving
for each person. If you want to make enough to have leftovers (which can be a great idea)
make it, portion it and then freeze it right away, so the extras won’t tempt you. Also,
serve your meals on smaller plates. You eat with your eyes first, and your eyes do not
want to see a whole lot of emptiness on the plate. Studies show smaller plates trick your
eyes and they hold less food, so you’re less likely to overeat. So remember: Portion
control can be more effective if you plan ahead! With some easy steps, you’ll stop
accidentally overeating, which will definitely help you feel a little bit better.
