5 Portion Control Tips Even eating healthy foods can be a weight loss problem if you consume too much. These tips
will help you watch your portion size at meal time so you will avoid overeating. . 1. When dining at a restaurant, ask for a container and take half your meal home (great for
lunch the next day) or split your meal with your dining partner.
2. If you must eat a snack while watching TV, measure out one serving of your snack -
don't take a whole bag of chips or cookies into your TV room.
3. Serve dinner by the plate, rather than family style (serving dishes on the table), you'll be
less likely to load up on second helpings when they're not right in front of you. 4. Start your meal with a low-cal clear soup or green salad to ease your hunger a bit so that
you aren't as likely to overeat your main meal.
5. . If cutting calories leaves you feeling hungry, add extra servings of nutrient-dense
vegetables like carrots, kale, spinach, green beans and celery
