Do Big Dishes Make You Eat More?
I am trying to lose weight but need some help. I heard something about how big dishes make you eat more. Is this true?
Large dishes and utensils can prompt you to eat larger portions. Take 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. To complete the meal, add a glass of fat-free or low-fat milk and a serving of fruit for dessert.
