Yeay! I am so excited to be part of Got Fat? Get Motivated?!!

Todays Topic is......Drum Roll!!!!!

                              How to eat small portions!
We all heard it so many times!
“YOU NEED TO EAT SMALL PORTIONS” ,,, yes, yes, I get it eat a little throughout the day.
BUT! How do I gain this habit of eating small portions?

Here are a few tips I personally use,

Use smaller bowls- the lager the bowl, the more food you’ll end up consuming.

No seconds!- Yes, it was so good the first time around! But trust me, it's not so tasty the second time around! Just keep away! Tell yourself you’ll eat again in 3 hours.

Handful snacks- I enjoy eating unhealthy foods and it’s ok too, BUT only a handful. Grad a handful of peanuts, chips, crackers, fries, chocolate m&m’s, chocolate kisses. LOL I love my chocolate!

Drink water- I don’t do this all the time, but I try to jug a class of water before a meal.

Eat nuts- If I’m REALLY HUNGREY before a meal, I’ll eat a handful of nuts while I’m cooking. This helps me avoid binge eating from being too hungry.

Eat when my son does- It’s so hard trying to eat every 3 hours! Mainly because we are so busy it’s hard to keep track of the time. Having a toddler is my personal alarm clock. Toddlers have such small tummys; they naturally eat small meals throughout the day. I eat whenever my toddler does which is usually every 3-4 hours because of his tiny tummy. =)

Small size- Anytime I eat fast food which is about twice a month, I order from the kids menu OR a small coke with small fries.

I hope these tips will help you control your portion size!

  1. Jen,

    This is an AWESOME topic. While I am motivated for exercise, I often "snack" too much. I need to try some of these tips.

    Thank you for sharing!
