I have a weird tip to help you with portion control Its in the book, but I had pretty much forgotten about it. Its just the way I happen to do things.
My daughter’s friends once commented that it was weird that I dished the food out and served it.
I didn’t think it was weird because that’s the way my family always did it.
If you wanted more, you had to go to the stove and get it.
Now back in the day when I was a kid, portion control wasn’t an issue. I think they did it to avoid the extra dirty dishes 😉
But if you think about it, if there are bowls of food sitting in front of you, you are more likely to mindlessly eat. If you have to actually get up and get more, you probably won’t. Right?
So – serve dinner off the stove.
- You’ll eat less
- You’ll have fewer dishes
- And you’ll have more room on the table
Try it and let me know what you think.
