Health Tip: Limit Food Portions
(HealthDay News) -- Limiting how much you eat during each meal can make it easier to lose any extra pounds.
The Weight-Loss Information Network offers this advice to help you control portion sizes:
Measure one serving (according to the product label) and serve it on a plate or bowl rather than eating straight out of the package.
To better enjoy your food, don't eat while watching TV or multi-tasking.
Eat from smaller dishes and use smaller glasses. Take your time.
Focus especially on portion sizes for dishes higher in calories and fat.
Store and freeze extra food immediately, so you're not tempted to overeat.
Don't skip meals. Hunger may prompt you to overeat.
Choose healthy, low-calorie snacks and divide into individual servings.
When indulging in a treat, measure a single-serving size.
