How Do I Make Sure I Eat the Proper Portion Size?
Begin by taking a look at your dishes. Are they too big? Using smaller plates, bowls and glasses can help you keep your portions under control.
You can use your plate as a guide for a balanced meal. Use half of your plate for vegetables, a quarter for grains and a quarter for lean meat or protein. To complete the meal, add a glass of fat-free or low-fat milk and a serving of fruit for dessert.
