Portion control

Let's face facts.  Most Americans eat too much.  Agreed?  Restaurant portions are huge.  Most of us think that since they thought that was a good-sized portion, we should eat that portion. After all, we paid for it!  At home, we eat whatever and how much of whatever we want.   That is why we are where we are.

   Enter Portion Control.  Yes!   Let's eat less. Let's weigh and measure out each thing we eat before we eat it.  Just look up "portion control" on Pinterest, and you will be amazed at all the products available and different methods of portion control.   If you control your portions you will lose weight.  True Fact. The added benefit is that there is no thinking or feeling involved.  You just eat what you have previously controlled, and you will be fine.   Until you go to a restaurant.

   Here is another true fact.  (Isn't that redundant?)   Thin people do not measure their food.  Nor do they eat everything that is put in front of them. They just eat what fills them up.  Note: it takes very little to fill them up, they are very sensitive to fullness.

  So, I submit to you this:  measure your food and control your portions for a while to get an idea of how much you are overeating, but then try to become sensitive to real hunger and fullness.   Learn these words, "I don't want anymore, I am full"   Skinny people say that all the time.
