CONTAIN IT!

 

20140420_153318To win the food battle…planning for portion control is a MUST!  One of the easiest ways, is to utilize containers, ziplocs, muffin tins, and scoops, etc. to make your portion control mindless.  Scoop a ½ cup of cottage cheese into a ½ cup sized container…feel happy as you eat it….  Put that same ½ cup on a large dinner-sized plate…feel sad as you look at it’s lonely self in all of that space.

Keep your containers close to the size of what you’ll be eating…1/4 cup…1/2 cup…1 cup.  These sizes are realistic, and very difficult to self-regulate if you’re eating right out of the bag or bottle.  🙂

Remember the old quip, “Fail to plan…Plan to fail!”
