Flip your dinnerware.
Use salad plates for dinner and dinner plates for salad. Research shows that you’ll eat less off small plates because you’ll keep your portions in check. For drinks, use your smallest glasses for milk and juice and your biggest ones for water. These strategies work by tricking your eyes.
Avoid eating from the bag.
Keep your portions under control by never eating straight from the box or bag. Unconscious eating from large bags or containers can lead to over-consuming. Research from Cornell found that people ate 45% more popcorn from large containers than popcorn served in a medium-sized container. Serve popcorn in a coffee mug, cereal in a teacup, nuts in a shot glass, and granola in a 1/2-cup ramekin. That will help you make sure your snack doesn’t become a fourth (or fifth!) meal.
