Portion Control

http://video.foxnews.com/v/3941845/why-are-we-fat/

The last 8 or 10 minutes are about sex and pregnancy but professionally done.

Notice how you feel when you watch what a portion looks like. I was thinking, "Why bother?" But remember you will be ready for food again at an appropriate time not stuffed and miserable. That is a plus of Weight Watchers - you learn what a portion looks like. That is also the secret of success with Jenny Craig and Nutri-System - portion control. If you can't afford either of these two you can buy portion controlled meals at the grocery - Lean Quisine, Smart Ones, etc., and achieve the same thing.

We also need to slow down - eat with your non-dominant hand - eat with your left hand if you are right handed and vice versa. That will slow you down. Also - do not put more food in your mouth until your mouth is completely empty and you have taken a drink of whatever you are drinking with your meal. It will take a while to make this a habit but will feel comfortable in time.

  1. I really like elephants ... in the wild, that is. Portion control rules.
