Healthy Thursday: Use A Small Plate

It is Healthy Thursday again, and my tip for this week is to use a small plate, rather than a large or even jumbo plate. I think it is obvious here in the US we have in an issue with using proper portion sizes. Bigger is better is the motto. However, bigger is better can lead to obesity and all kinds of health problems. If you use a small plate, you will find very easily and painlessly that you are eating less and losing weight. Not getting seconds will help as well. Though if you are someone who often eats seconds on a large plate, you will still be eating less than normal. Fill your plate with mostly veggies then add your meat and starchy food such as potatoes. You will be healthier and losing weight in no time. Incorporating this into your whole family will make it a much easier adjustment for you.

It definitely works, but can take a bit of time to get used to. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
