Reach for a smaller plate!
Here is a tip that I keep having to remind myself to do. I remember many years ago visiting a friend when we were on furlough. Since we were by ourselves that morning she offered me cereal for breakfast. The interesting and shocking thing was when she got out 2 small bowls smaller than dessert dishes, and she poured the cereal half way full. I think my mouth must have dropped open which I quickly shut. No wonder she was almost 40 and had a flat stomach! I have never forgotten that, and I have to admit that I eat a lot more for breakfast than 3 tablespoons of cereal. But I have learned to serve my foods or snacks on smaller plates. It does help!
