Dish It Up and Lose The Pounds
Ever notice how large the platters are at your favorite places like Outback or Houston’s? Portion control will help you lose weight. However, with the 12-inch plates and large drinking glasses or coffee cups that are often found in households and restaurants today, smaller portions can look disappointingly small. When you see a little scoop of food served on a large dish, you might feel deprived. Even though that small serving can be physically satisfying, the sight of it can make you feel negative emotionally.
One way you can address this issue is by purchasing some smaller dishes. An 8 ½-inch or 9-inch plate for your lunch and dinner meals is much more appropriate. Once you put your serving of vegetable, protein, starch and fat on it you should find yourself with a full plate. Also consider using a soup cup (6 to 8 ounces) instead of a soup bowl that may hold 12 to 16 ounces. A big bowl can make your soup serving look like a spoonful.

Don’t let dishes deceive you. Just because your portions may look small on a large plate, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t provide enough calories and nutrients to fill you up. Find dishes that are more suitable for portion sizes appropriate on a healthy diet. It will help you feel better about what you’re going to eat, and help you continue to look better as you lose weight!
