To 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!”
