Visualizing ingredients

When faced with choice of tempting foods, I visualize the ingredients, i.e. French Silk Pie ingredients: white four. Lard, water, salt, butter, raw eggs, chocolate, sugar, vanilla. 4 servings of cream! Opt for fresh fruit, dipped in dark chocolate, 2 strawberries, perfect!

less calories

I write a menu for two weeks at a time atleast one week in advance. Use it to shop and DO NOT buy anything not on the menu. emoticon

Use a smaller plate

To trick myself into the smaller portions, I used a salad plate.
emoticon
The small plate doesn't look so empty. I was able to portion my foods to the right portion. The smaller plate worked in the way that the plate did not look so empty.

Shopping With a List

We are all tempted while shopping. Now I only shop with a well thought out list. At the store if it is NOT on the list I can't buy it. I'm less likely to write, "ice cream, cookies or candy" on the list now. By only shopping that way I buy only good foods and I save money too!

Handy Containers for Portion Control

I keep a small container with the foods that I eat most often. For example I have a tiny Tupperware container that is about 1/4 cup that I keep in my granola. No more guessing! Just scoop and add to my berries & breakfast is ready! I have one in my bag of almonds, as well.
