Tip No. 1: Eat Off Grandma’s China
Talk about portion distortion. According to research, the surface area of a typical dinner plate has increased by 36% since 1960. Let’s face it: The bigger the plate, the more food you are likely to heap on and eat.
Tip: Use Grandma’s dinner plates at your supper and smaller plates when you entertain this holiday season. Using a smaller plate can dramatically reduce the calories consumed at that meal. Piling mostly veggies on smaller plates can further reduce calories at your meals yet “fill you up without filling you out”.
