Prioritize Portion Size!

When it comes to healthy eating, how much you eat can be just as important as what you eat. Eating portions that are too big can lead to overeating and weight gain. Manage the munchies by enjoying realistic portions.

Size counts! Package, plate and portion sizes can influence how much you eat. Larger portions, huge packages and bigger plates and bowls can all cause overeating. Set your table for portion-size success with these tips:

  • Use smaller, lunch-sized plates and bowls for meals. You’ll eat less but still feel satisfied.
  • Serve food, or have family members serve themselves, from the counter or the stove.
  • Keep serving dishes of vegetables on the table. If you’re still hungry, eat more veggies.
  • Put a large glass of water on the table. You might even drink more water.
