Portion Control: Part 2
I don't know about you, but it takes incredible will power for me not to finish an 8 oz. strip steak, or a chocolate dessert.  Sometimes I play little games with myself to keep my little hunger devil at bay (sometimes I admit it works better than other times).
Some ideas to curb overeating are:
1.  To have an 8 oz. glass of water 20-30 minutes before you eat.  It fills you up, takes the edge off your hunger before you sit down to your food and it helps you achieve drinking the recommended 50-60 oz. of water per day.
2.  Make your meal the destination vs. a job.  Set the table.  Sit down.  Enjoy the smell, texture and sensation of the food.  Put a few flowers in a vase.  Do all this for YOU.  It really will help you slow down and enjoy...and you'll be more mindful of what you eat.
3.  Don't bring serving dishes to the table.  It's easy to throw more food on your plate, even if you really are full.  If you really want to ensure you eat only what  your body really needs, plate up your meal, and put  the leftovers away before you sit down to eat.  You'll think twice about seconds of you have to get them out of the fridge.
4.  Engage in conversation instead of eating while blindly watching t.v..  If you don't have someone to dine with, put on music, read or talk to your pet.
*Most off...enjoy your food, you deserve it!
