  • I went out and bought a smaller plate at a thrift store quite some time ago. Red is a trigger color for me; I could not abide red dishes in my cabinets, but someone mentioned blue... that I could try. I normally eat snacks with my non-dominant hand, but from decades working with both hands, I think I am about 90% ambidextrous. Or perhaps I'd be eating far more if I used my originally dominant hand!

    Interesting tips. I had a hard time hearing it, and wish they'd offer more of this kind of thing in a slide-show or just text with illustrations.

    I think different things work for different people, and this gives us a variety of tips to try. - 5/6/2015 9:07:24 AM

    The idea of eating with your non-dominant hand is a great idea! - 3/1/2015 9:30:28 PM

    I'm impressed. The idea of a mirror could help if you see yourself losing weight in the face, etc. (assuming that you are trying to lose weight). - 2/17/2015 10:07:49 AM

    Putting your fork down before each meal and chewing all of your food between each bites really does work. I also try to drink 8oz of water before each meal. - 1/10/2015 5:59:35 PM
  • Not so sure about the long-term usefulness of limiting variety. I guess it comes down to personal preference. :) - 1/7/2015 2:24:18 PM
  • Going to go get a small red plate and small red bowl and give this a try. - 12/3/2014 3:22:02 PM

    Just love all the tricks. I'm sharing them with FB! - 11/2/2014 7:10:07 PM
  • The mirror in the kitchen is a good idea. I can see myself wanting to eat and turning the mirror around...don't do that! LOL - 11/2/2014 4:07:49 PM
  • I enjoyed the ideas. I would investigate the red plates for our snacks - 4/17/2014 3:11:47 PM
  • I have also heard that blue plates make food look less appetizing. I heard not to eat food on a plate that a food color would come in. - 3/26/2014 10:52:01 PM
